Ralston/Purina Cereals Part IV

Okay, now for Batman Cereal. Batman cereal is right up there with Ghostbusters and TMNT (review forthcoming) as an all time favorite in cerealdom. Oddly, it was nothing too special; no marshmallows, no variety of flavors, no double bagging, but instead was simple perfection. Little corn Batman logos with a Cap'n Crunch flavor, but not as intense, and without the mouth shredder texture of said Cap'n. The only way I can really convey the tastiness of this breakfast treat is that it is some kind of zenith in the science of cereal creation. Only food scientists could come up with something this good. You may recall that Donkey Kong cereal had a similar vibe, but there's just somethin' about this one. And it came with a giant Batman "piggy" bank shrinkwrapped to it.

There was also a Gremlin's Cereal made by R/S that I unfortunately never got to try, but it looks very much the same as Batman.

Was that Beans Baxter with the mogwai ears on?
