It was a cereal from around 1981 or 1982, and it had a cartoon king as the main character. It was very similiar in appearance and taste to peanut butter Cap'n Crunch.

Halfises was a cereal made by Quaker, and the king's name was King Halfsie. He ruled the "magic land where everything is half. But the best half of all is great tasting Halfsies, the cereal that's a whole lot more fun.", or so the side of the box says. The big deal about this cereal is that it was one of the first cereals to offer half the sugar of most sugar-coated cereals. I have a couple old boxes, dated 1982 and the price tag on the top flap is $1.89 for a 16oz large box. I remember eating this cereal and it did NOT have a peanut butter taste, though it did taste similar to regular Cap'n Crunch.

Thinking about Halfsies cereal always leaves a bitter taste in my mouth. When I was a little kid, my whole family used to share a box of Halfsies for breakfast. It was great because I loved the sugar coated taste. The only problem was that in our family, we had four kids, and so we didn't split the box in half, but had to split the box four ways. Ever since that time, I've always thought splitting something in half meant to split something into four pieces. It ruined my life. I took the SAT, and because of my incorrect halfsies, I got a 300. I've never gone to college, cuz I can't split things in half. It's a good thing that I have three wives now, it makes the math real easy.

yes, wasn't this the cereal that used Equal instead of sugar? I remember being mildly hooked on it. It definitely didn't taste like Peanut Butter Capn' Crunch. More like a watered-down version of regular Capn' Crunch.

Rad! Halfsies! I actually remember the commercials more than the cereal itself. The King with half a crown, half a castle, stuff like that.

I was in one of the commercials for this cereal! I was selected from a tasting group before the cereal went to production!

@Kevlovescereal: No, the "NutraSweet" cereal was Sun Flakes! (they were HIDEOUSLY sweet! You tasted NOTHING but the aspartame!) Halfsies just had ½ the sugar of regular cereals; and surprisin gly, weren't that bad!

These were a nutrasweet version of QUISP. THAT was the bomb. Its still on store shelves we ate it. Quisp had this crazy rabbit thing as mascot. I think they're same shape as halfsies but full sugar. Anyone remember those?
