Hurricane Stock-Up: Sprinkles Cookie Crisp

Possibly the BEST CEREAL EVER MADE.  Well, not health-wise, or even happiness wise.
(I just ate half-a-box and I feel pretty depressed)
But if you were trying to calculate which was the best, like, most cracked-out, like
most sugar-y sugar cereal ever invented, I'd have said Cookie Crisp.
But now they have SPRINKLES COOKIE CRISP! 

I've dipped out on the Cookie Crisp mythology in recent years.  Back in the day, there was a Wizard named
Cookie Jarvis that magically made the Cookie Crisp.  Then Jarvis died in a magic battle with Lucky, the Leprechaun from Lucky Charms so they hired a duo - Officer Crumb, a cop, and the Cookie Crook --who was this little 1950's style robber that wore a chef's hat with cookies on it and a little Zorro mask.
At first the Cookie Crook would triumph against Crumb, but soon General Mills went soft and didn't think it
was cool to show cops getting duped by cookie thieves.  So for most of his reign, much like the Trix rabbit,
the Cookie Crook never pulled off another caper.  But in the end of the Cookie Crook's days, before he
went to prison for life, he had a dog named Chip, who took over for awhile.  Then they hired this
Wolf guy, who's also called Chip, but who was originally called Howler.  It's like the longest, most
confusing story in history of cereal.  

Reds, Oranges, Greens and Blues.


  1. Cereal Box Mascots suffering at the hands of some smart-ass tricking them into not getting to eat THEIR OWN CEREAL... It's a mythology as old as the mold growing under the crisper drawer in our fridge. I'd bet it might even go as far back as Willie Shakesbeer.

  2. My teeth hurt just looking at this...

  3. Sounds like they gave Cookie Crook the Wile E. Coyote treatment. I liked Count Chocula and his pals best. Yummy!
