I really loved this cereal. More than any "healthy" cereal ever. Bring it back.

i remember this being a 90's cereal, not an 80's one. or maybe it existed before i discovered it, but it seems like they sent out samples in the mail to get people acquainted with it.

Same here, nathew, I remember eating it in the 90s, but I was born in '86, so it may have existed before I remember. A popular thing the grade school cafeteria would do is make rice krispies treats with Triples cereal. Guess the varigated colors of the cereal pieces made it more exciting.

I agree w/ nathew. These came out in the early '90s! But they were VERY good!

Will Kelloggs Jumbo Multi-Grain Krispies come close to Triples? They are new. The commercial for the Jumbo Krispies reminded me of how much I miss Triples cereal! They were me and my daughters favorite cereal.

I completely agree. It would be nice if the new rice krispies were like it though. But don't get your hopes up!! Let's just hope the decide to make it again!

None of my friends seem to remember Triples, I was born in 85 & I definitely remember this cereal from the 90's. I LOVED this cereal SOOOOO much....it was my favorite cereal from back then, and no cereal comes close till this day. I really wish General Mills would bring it back, maybe we should harass them until they do lol

In 1991 my husband and I were driving through Colorado and craving a bowl of cereal but didn't want to go to a restaurant. We went into a grocery store and bought a box of Triples, some milk, a couple of bananas, and some of those big plastic type party cups and got some plastic spoons. We feasted on Triples in a parking lot and it was delicious! A break from all the restaurant food we endured driving across the country. Recently when I was watching Seinfeld I saw a box of Triples on Jerry's shelf in the background and I realized how much I miss it.

TRIPLES ROCKS ! They definately need to bring this cereal back into production! I watched a couple old commercials on youtube for Triples and they are awesome! haha. The different colors in the cereal and the slightly sweet taste were definately memorable! (Born in 1985)

Triples is the coolest cereal ever.

Wrote to General Mills (too much time on my hands, yes) asking about the disappearance of Triples. They discontinued it because it wasn't as popular as they had hoped it would be. The commercials would say "Like Rice Krispies? Try Triples." Sadly, not enough did.

Apparently General Mills is not paying any attention to the comments that have been made over the last THREE years! Still don't see it on the shelves. We miss it too!!

Triples was THE best cereal. I wish they would bring it back...pleeeease?

I used to buy Triples for my kids in the early nineties. They LOVED it, and I did too. I wrote to general mills back then and they said there wasn't enough interest in it. I say times have changed and people are more health conscious - SO BRING IT BACK!! I bet it would do good now.

Triples were great! My main memory of these was having them for breakfast the morning of my first day of high school (that was '92). I don't remember seeing them in the 80's though.

Triples cereal was the best! I used to eat it almost every morning in high school. I wish GM would bring it back into production. Maybe they could have a limited run of discontinued 80's-90's cereals for a while. I'd certainly buy it (probably all of it). Lol

I was a complete Triples cereal fan. I wish GM would bring them back. They were so much crispier than Rice Krispies and made THE BEST Scotch-a-roos
