This was a sweetened corn cereal; I believe Quaker might have made it. The cereal "puffs" were in the shape of half circles.

I remember Body Buddies, but never ate it. I did have a box of Halfsies once. Weird chemical flavor. Unsettling.

Came out in the early 80's and had half the sugar (plus Nutrasweet) of regular cereals, and was half corn and half rice. One of the commercials from 1983 offered a contest to win a full-sized video game machine and had Dudley from Different Strokes in it.

Yup I remember this, first cereal on the market with the new Nutrasweet. Remember enjoying the cereal.. They also put it in some soda/pop.. Remember getting a stern discussion from my father about drinking pop with the stuff in it.. Somehow they squeaked by the FDA and it was an untested sweetener. Later found to be harmful to small children still developing.. Something about memory , or causing issues with some children. Hafsies was not bad.. I liked it.
