I can't believe I forgot to add sugar cereals in that list! My favorites were the Monster cereals. I basically just liked anything containing marshmallows.  :D

I think the heyday of sugared cereal was the mid-'80s.  There was soooooo many.  Every cartoon had its own or vice versa

Count Chocoula was my favorite,when you finished the cereal you'd get that chocolate milk towards the end and drink it up.

This came up a few years ago in a "Sodas in the 90s" thread - the funny globs floating in Orbitz were made of gellan gum.  Clicky for the whole story, including information on how to do it yourself.  (Bonus points: vegan-friendly fake caviar!)
