It takes a spot of courage to stand up tall and a bit of derring-do to rise when you fall

Blast From The Past

Does anyone besides me remember Freakies cereal??? And why did it stop showing up on the shelves anyway? That was my favorite cereal when I was a kid. I couldn't believe it when I discovered that there's a whole website dedicated to it, along with merchandise to buy. But I don't want a T-shirt, people. I want a bowl of cereal. A big bowl of Freakies.

I have no memory of those at all--neither from my childhood or from my kids'! How could I have missed them?

yeah, with a name like that, I would think that it would've stuck in your memory. I don't know. But boy, were they good (quite possibly you had to be 8 to enjoy them).

I went out with a guy who was a Quisp freak. He had old Quisp boxes in his apartment... I won't say much more, since he has a blog and FOUND MINE!!! Eek!!

Happy T-Day, Freakie! :)

Hah! I haven't heard of Quisp. But it looks like (from their website) similar to the whole Freakies thing. How did I miss Quisp? It looks like your friend can get rid of his old boxes, tho. The website says you can still buy the cereal. Now, if I could still get ahold of some Freakies, we'd all be happy! :)
And Happy Thanksgiving to you and Lucas too!

I have no idea what you're talking about with this Freakies cereal business. I think you made it up, actually. Who would name a cereal "Freakies"? Are you sure they aren't just a weird dream you had?
I'm guessing the person who ate that would also eat a xvigylog...

Different shapes, same taste.

Freakies were mixed from the same goo as Cap'n Crunch, Quisp, and King Vitaman. They were great.
