I loved this cereal and I wish it were still out. I thought the box was the coolest, just like a blown up box of nerds. Man the good old days.

I never had the Nerds cereal. What year did they come out exactly anyway? I saw a commercial on Youtube on them, and thought they looked just gross. I asked my aunt who's in her 40s about them and she doesn't know about them neither.

Cereal has gotten boring. Lookin at all of these great old cereals is making me think about all of the cool (and sometimes not so cool) prizes. I look at cereal today, where's the prize?

I remember Nerds cereal. In fact, I had a "blast from the past" last week when I picked up a box of Berry Krispies (Rice Krispies with grape and strawberry flavored krispies mixed in) because it tasted and smelled like Nerds! I keep finding bad reviews for the cereal but it was delicious!

I LOVED NERDS CEREAL!!!!!! If only they would still sell them. I agree with some of you. I can still taste them too. But, boy would it be nice to sit down to a bowl of nerds cereal right now. Maybe if we keep writing about it people will listen and bring it back.

I remember it had 2 flavors in every box. It was like 2 cereals in one. My kids think I'm nuts when I tell them about cereal from the 80's.

Nerds cereal was to breakfast like peanuts are to a bar. As a child I looked forward to it more than smores or even a hot chocolate after a day of sledding. I remember it as though it were yesterday. let us start a petition to the wonka company to bring it back. Bring back nerds cereal and the hartford whalers, and the world shall be set back into proper order!

Yes Fans! I have checked all over to see if I could find some nerds cereal. It haunts me! I read some guys named matt's idiotic hate for the cereal. Bring back Nerds Cereal!!! I say we write the company, start a facebbok, myspace site with petition!
Scott - January 11, 2010 - Report this comment
Call me crazy, but I believe that there is a product out now that may taste like the cherry part of Nerds Cereal. My daughter who is one loves the Gerber Puffs cherry flavored. I will eat a few every now and then and could have sworn that they tasted like a cereal I used to eat as a kid. I did some research and found this website. I wonder if it was NERDS. If anyone else has tried the GERBER cherry puffs and can compare, let me know!!!

I love nerd cereal. Why did they get rid of it. It was the best cereal ever. It is so weird, but I can still taste them too. My husband is also a huge nerd fan, but cannot remember the cereal. I wish it would come back for my children (us too).

NO! I will not stand by and let someone have the audacity to even claim that Cherry Nerds compare remotely to the tangtastic sensation that rocked the wold; Gerbers. Gerbers are so good that they once made me hallucinate back to the birth of my firstborn! F'ing A!! Peace.

JD Walsh: The answer to your question about finding a Nerd Bowl is simple: Go to Ebay............Ebay has THOUSANDS of discontinued, nostalgic, childhood items for a great price. I found many great things on Ebay........check it out. BTW: I remember Nerds Cereal, and it was absolutely DELICIOUS........the Grape was AWESOME. I even had the nerds bowl, with the Nerd Gate.

I loved Nerds cereal and no one belived me so I downloaded a photo off google and posted it to Facebook to PROVE it! half red half orange in two separate bags! so cool and so good and sweet and they need to make it again, I think Post made it but Im not sure I can look

where can i buy some keep giving me the run arounds do anybody knw.
Alana - June 09, 2011 - Report this comment
as far as I can figure out Lara is it is now unable to be found or bought, except in its original box as a collectors item, which would of course now be 20 years outdated and terrible to consume LOL.I wish they would re make it I really liked it, and as far as it going mushy, I ate mine dry so that wasn't an issue. A person could always pour small amounts into milk,little at a time, eat that, then add more as they go along I suppose. I do so with shredded wheat which goes mushy as well.I always know exactly what will go off the market next, it seems, becasue whatever flavor I love the most will automaticly be the least selling, less popular, or whatever, it SUX

I don't understand why did yall have to have to take it off the shelf like that when i was 4 yrs old i love those nerds cereal so i don't see what's. the problem just because a couple of people say it sucks doesn't mean yall have to take it away like that is more people out there that nerds cereal than the people that don't like so i don't think is fair to do that. It need to be reconsider for that cereal to come back on the shelf and let it stay there whoever that made that cereal need to be considerate of how other people feel about that cereal um ralston need to consider that if it don't taste that good to you yall need to make it taste better instead taking it out of the grocery store like that so i hope in the near future i hope that yall need to bring it back out and stay there thank you cause it dont taste bad to me or other people so have a heart bring it back
