General Mills' Clackers are probably better known for their commercials than their product. Clackers was a naturally sweet oat (I think) cereal. Each Clacker was big, almost teaspoon-sized, and was shaped almost like a brown cog (picture a cog within a wheel). It was crunchy and supposedly quite nutritious. The commercials overshadowed the cereal, though. A baseball pitcher, with his hand behind his back, winds up for the pitch and 'CLACKERS!!' (he whips out a box of Clackers instead of a baseball). A vampire says to a frightened victim, "Don't be afraid. All I vant is your 'CLACKERS!' (a hand shoves a box of Clackers between the vampire and the girl).

They tasted like graham crackers. They were quite tasty and stayed crunchy in milk. I miss them.

I loved the commercials. Never got the cereal. Just came into my head today, June 2010. commercials will never die. When I become senile, I will tell everyone I only want their "CLACKERS!".

I liked the picture Chuck posted, of the Clackers box with Wacky Racer toy cars. This was odd, because Kellogg's had sponsored "Wacky Races" on CBS (1968-70). Cars pictured were Peter Perfect's, the Compact Pussycat, and Dick Dastardly's Mean Machine.
