The BEST of the cookie crisp cereals by far. I never understood why they took it off the market. YUMMY, I wish I had some right now!

Vanilla was the absolute best flavored Cookie Crisp. They should bring them back. I can taste them right now. Remind me again why they discontinued making them.Let's start a campaign to bring them back.AAAHH the good ole days.

I agree, it was mine and my brother's favorite. After a while of going to the grocery store with our Mother and realizing we could no longer find it, she actually called the maker for us to inquire about it and then it was confirmed. She actually tried to get them to sell to us directly but they wouldn't do it. We have been waiting for it to come back since. Although, we have found that "French Toast Crunch" actually tastes quite like the Vanilla Cookie Crisp did. Try it and see what you think.

this cereal was the best cereal in the free world. I wish I could get it back. French Toast Crunch is a poor substitute

I cannot believe this cereal have not return, why it was removed in the first place angers me. Let's get vanilla cookie crisp back on the shelf.

I love this cereal. I am mad that they took it off the market. If any one knows how we can influence them to bring it back let me know.

It boggles my mind as to why they took those cereal off as well. I would hope that the nasty chocolate chip version was not the better seller. That would be the only reason for discontinuing the flavor. I would love to see them bring them back. The cereal game is totally LACKING these days. It would be nice if they consider it for a limited edition supply. Just test market it, people geez!!!

Vanilla cookie crisp rocked -- I'm glad I found a site with others commenting about how much they loved it too. Man, I wish I had a bowl right now. Damn.

I am also glad to find people who miss this product. They brought back the Vanilla Frosty at Wendy's now bring back Vanilla Cookie Crisp!

I loved this cereal!! Thank you Nicci for exposing how nasty that chocolate chip version is. I have friends that never knew the vanilla existed and swear by the chocolate chip. They don't know what they missed. I wish they would bring the vanilla back. I would eat it everyday.

Speaking of French Toast Crunch, where did that go?? I loved that stuff and all I can find anymore is the cinnamon toast crunch (not as good). I remember the awesome smell when u first opened the box-it was just like pancake syrup!

Why Why Why, have they taken away the vanilla cookie crisp. This is a true injustice to ceral lovers. Please bring back vanilla cookie crisp.

I can't believe a site like this exist. I was just trying to convince a friend that the best cereal in this universe was Vanilla cookie crisp. She is older than me and never heard of it. Thank god I now have proof. I wish they would bring back the best cereal ever. It was so good that, it's the only thing from my early childhood I remember so fondly ! BRING IT BACK !
Kimberly - May 14, 2008 - Report this comment
I contacted General Mills and they said due to low sales they discontinued the product(duh!). They also said that they have no plans on bringing the product back. So I guess all we have is our memories. NEVER SAY NEVER, KEEP HOPE ALIVE !

WHAT IS GOING ON. MY HUSBAND AND I WOKE UP EARLY AND ATE SOME CEREAL. WE WERE TRYING TO FIGURE OUT WHAT HAPPENED TO VANILLA COOKIE CRISP. WHAT IS THE DEAL. WHY CAN'T WE HAVE IT BACK. THIS IS WHAT I GREW UP ON AND I MISS IT.

Wow, I thought I was the only one that missed the Vanilla Cookie Crisp!! Every time I'm in the cereal aisle I look for it. Reminds me of watching cartoons on Saturday mornings growing up...

Everyone I am very disturb that they had discontinued this brand just because of the taste and the taste. I am thinking they are not bringing it back because they had put something in it they made it so addicting like drugs..lol HEY, why else they refuse to bring back the best cereal in the world. They need to bring back the Smurf cereal as well but cereal today is not what it use to be. BUT anyway GENERAL MILLS IF YOU ARE READING THIS PLEASE BRING BACK COOKIE CRISP VANILLA BECAUSE THE CHOCOLATE CHIPS IS PLAIN NASTY. AMERICA LOVE THE VANILLA BRAND PLEASSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSE BRING IT BACK..LOL

I thought Vanilla Cookie Crisp was just a wonderful, recurring dream I used to have as a little girl. I still look for it when I go shopping.
Phil - August 22, 2008 - Report this comment
I'm glad to see people remember it. I bring it up all the time that Cookie Crisp started out as Vanilla flavored. I have to disagree with General Mills saying lack of sales made them discontinue it. How many cereals really sell a huge amount? Most brands probably have moderate sales....so why not have diversity for those that want it? So don't mass produce it...at least produce it!!!!
Mini - September 10, 2008 - Report this comment
Everytime I go grocery shopping I still look for the Vanilla cookie crips in hopes of that one odd grocery store having it. But it never happens:-( its just a dream. Chocolate Chip Cookie Crisp is so gross! I always remeberd as a little girl being the best cereal in the whole world. I was so sad when they stopped it. I found one that taste like it. Its in Pathmark. Its in a bag and pathmark brand but I cant quite remeber the name of it. But Please Genereal Mills....BRING BACK VANILLA COOKIE CRISP FOR THE SAKE OF MAN KIND!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

i agree with all of you, one day i rolled out of bed, went to eat breakfast, i had a taste for some cereal, only to realize i don't eat cereal anymore because they stopped making my favorit cereal so many years ago. the VANILLA COOK CRISP WAS GONE with no warning, i can not remember when it was made, all i do know is that i woke up every morning eating it, and then it was gone and i didn't eat cereal anymore. I woke up that morning and with a taste of cereal (vanilla cookie crisp) only to realize they stopped making it, only to realize i am not a little girl anymore. so i settled for a cup of coffee and depression, I still don't eat cereal. don't get me wrong i've tried but nothing compares to the great taste of VANILLA COOKIE CRISP, so today i wrote a letter to General Mills, actually I left a comment on the customer service section of their website.

I bet if my name was "OPRAH WINFREY" they would bring it back in a heart beat. Vanilla Cookie Crisp was the best cereal they ever had. What is it with General Mills? Do they ever listen to their customers. Maybe just for the anniversary they could bring it back, even if it was for a limited time only!

Companies have been making limited supply of the old time cereals, we just got Quisp which seemed so good 20 years ago so maybe someday we will have the Vanilla Cookie Crisp again.

Sprinkles Cookie Crisp is not Vanilla Cookie Crisp. Didn't the Vanilla come in a blue box with white letters, anyone remember? I loved that stuff. I wish I still had the magnets that came in the box. Coooooooooooooooookie Crisp!...the dogs name was Chip. lol

I thought maybe Vanilla Cookie Crisp just wasn't being sold in NY and maybe it was in another state but apparently not. That was and still is MY FAVORITE CEREAL!! If there are so many people that love this cereal how could they stop making it. The chocolate one is so-so, and I refuse to try this new vanilla one with sprinkles!BRING BACK VANILLA COOKIE CRISP GENERAL MILLS!
