They were sort of like Cap'n Crunch but with a bit more sugary taste and finer texture. It had this ridiculous looking king on the cover smiling as he spooned the cereal into his mouth.

I remember eating King Vitaman. I think back to the name and think it's funny that with the name of it they tried to pass it off as healthy or something. It was similar to Cap'n Crunch and maybe even Quake. The Cap'n, King Vitaman, Quisp, and Quake are/were all Quaker products. Maybe they dropped the king because they had too many similar cereals.

This was a pretty good cereal, I'd say an 8 out of 10, especially considering you knew it was cheap as hell. The King on the box was a bonus, I was always wondering if he would ask me and Dudley to visit the back room of his bike shop someday. Just kidding.

I've eaten this ever since I was a kid! ('70s, '80s, '90s, & today!) Now, I buy it for my kids; they like it, too! (They've now replaced the "live" King with a "cartoon" one on the boxes!) LOL

OMG!!! This cereal was my favorite, besides Ice Cream Cone Cereal and Cocoa Puffs lol. Remember when we used to read the box for entertainment while we ate cereal? Now kids just wanna watch tv while they eat..lol I remember cutting out the mask and wearing them!! King Vitamin was so far from gross! It was the best, especially with warm milk.

This was another cereal my mom was able to get on WIC. It tasted like Capn Crunch only healthier and less sweet. You could almost taste the vitamins that were in it.

i definitely remember the masks on the back, i bought a box about a month ago... and i was dissapointed that the mask had been replaced by a bunch of mumbo jumbo...

Best cereal ever and I'm a huge Cap'n Crunch fan. I can't find it anymore though.

I definitely preferred Cap n Crunch over this when I was a kid but now I can't get enough of King Vitamin. Winn Dixie and Food Lion stores are the only one's that carry it here where I live (North Florida) so I usually buy at least 2 boxes at a time!!! Oh to be a kid again....

This was gross. I would pretty much eat anything when I was a kid, but I remember feeling cheated when I picked this out and tried it for the first time.
