This cereal was actually from very early in the decade (80-81)...its commercial featured 3 men whom a friend jokingly described as "Snap, Crackle and Pop's Irish uncles" who spoke in rhyme w/a heavy brogue and prepared to board a ship, only to be distracted by the cereal, finally deciding to leave their ship behind as they enjoy it.

I remember the theme song for Raisins, Rice and Rye: "People of raisin persuasion, Kellogg's Raisin's Rice and Rye is made for you!"

My grandmother bought Raisin Rice & Rye in the 80's. It was good stuff.

I remember part of their verse: Guy 1: "This deserves investigation, this intriguing combination. This cereal called Raisins, Rice..." Guy 2: "and Rye!" I would love to see that commercial again.

Holy @#$%, this has to have been the most obscure cereal ever, but trust the Internet to find some people who remember it! I remember the commercial with the ship. At the end they said, "And now 'tis time to bid our faithful ship bye, bye, bye... and get back to Raisins," Guy 2: "Rice," Guy 3: "And Rye!" I thought their accents were Scottish, not Irish, but my memory could be faded.

Def an obscurity...however, as a vintage TV afficionado, I managed to find this spot among my holdings. Showed it to some friends a coupla years ago, and it cracked them up...we now frequently exclaim "bye, bye, bye!" like they do in the ad, whenever leaving a place! LOL

B'Gosh B'Gome B'Gorha, this could be our folly, a cereal called Raisins Rice & Rye.

This couldnt sound any more disgusting unless it was named "Raisins, rice, rye, and oysters".

This was absolutely my favorite cereal. I think it lasted only a year or so it seemed. I would buy a case of it if it ever came back. What I liked about it was that it wasn't too sweet. Does anyone know a cereal that tastes close to it?

Cool! Others remember, too... I remembered it as, "By gosh, by gum, begorrah, let's poor a little more-a, that mysterious cereal called raisins," "Rice!" "And rye!" One of the guys was Colonel Crittendon from Hogan's Heroes, too.

So the mystery is solved...since Bernard "Col. Crittendon" Fox is Welsh, his 2 friends must have been, as well!

I have been a "Cereal Killer" all my life, now 57. "Raisins, Rice, and Rye" still ocationally pops into my thoughts. I still miss my old friend. PS: I think the word "Rye" in the cereal name is what doomed the product. Rye just does sound very good.

Absolutely the best cereal Kellogg's ever made. So good in fact I would eat at anytime, morning, noon or night. Here's hoping for a comeback. Hard to find a decent cereal these days. I want half a dozen cases.

Best cereal I can remember period. I too would like a half dozen cases. Why do marketing buffoons keep phasing out delicious products?

I remember this stuff. I was a little kid and hated it. Sorry. I stuck with good old raisin bran.

I wrote a poem about this cereal back in 1980: As each spoonful that you savor Inundates you with its flavor, You will choke and gag and sigh As you eat Raisins Rice and Rye. You will suffer at your leisure As your heart rings with a seizure; Out in anguish you will cry While eating Raisins Rice and Rye. So let us hasten, let us tarry, Let us eat, drink and be merry, For tomorrow we will shrivel up and die -- "Bye bye bye!" -- From eating all that Raisins Rice and Rye. All in fun, of course. I loved the stuff. I even sent away to Battle Creek for the Raisins Rice and Rye frisbee. I still have it someplace!
