Have some cereal, Killer

Ever wonder what's the story with the Trix Rabbit? (His predecessor was Stick Figure Boy!) Or how Cap'n Crunch got his start? (His first name's Horatio!) Read all about it in Topher's Breakfast Cereal Character Guide

In 1963, John Holahan cut up some pieces of those hideous rubbery orange Circus Peanuts and put them in his cereal. Thus the popular cereal ingredient known in the industry as "marbits" was born. More than you ever wanted to know about how marbits are made. I mean extruded. Yuk, let's just stick with "made".

The Boxtop newsletter offers "Crunchy Nuggets for Cerealists"

I've mentioned it before, but it's worth repeating: The Empty Bowl may be THE Ultimate Cerealophile site.

Lastly, don't forget about the prize inside.
