Ah, the ’90s. A simpler time when gel pens were in, The Babysitters Club flew off of bookshelves, MTV still played music videos, and nearly every family in America watched Saturday morning cartoons. For me, the latter held the most value. No TV binge was complete without a big bowl of cereal, and the ’90s gave us some of our very best gems.

While the ’90s may be long gone at this point, some our favorite discontinued cereals are experiencing a comeback. Did you know you could buy these five fan favorites again?

Post Oreo O’s

First introduced in 1997

This was the only way my mom would let me eat cookies for breakfast, hence why I loved it. First launched at the tail end of the ’90s, chocolate rings covered with cream bits mimicked the experience of eating an actual Oreo cookie. Post removed the cereal from its lineup in 2007, but it returned to shelves in 2017.

General Mills French Toast Crunch

First introduced in 1995

This maple-flavored treat had all the appeal of sweet French toast (including a mini version of its shape), sans the soggy bread. It was discontinued by General Mills in 2006, but made a comeback in 2014. In 2017, to satisfy fruit lovers, three new flavors were introduced: apple cinnamon, strawberry, and blueberry.

Post Waffle Crisp

First introduced in 1996

This corn-based cereal took on the shape of a breakfast classic (read: waffles, hence the name), and technically was never nixed. Instead Post created a more budget-friendly version dubbed “Waffle Crunch,” as part of their Good MOREnings line. Although if you’re partial to the original, you can still find it online.

Kellogg’s Rice Krispies Treats Cereal

First introduced in 1993

This is another one of those cereals that stores never actually stopped selling. We really just stopped hearing about it. Or at least I did. For fans of the actual sticky, toasted-rice treats, this version is simply the best. Seriously, don’t even think about getting the plain (non-sweet) version.

Kellogg’s Pop-Tarts Cereal

First introduced in 1994

Unfortunately, I never got to try this old favorite. But given its popularity — there was even a Facebook page dedicated to bringing it back — I’m sure it must’ve been good. Still it was pulled off of shelves just a year after its release. Now, almost 24 years later, Kellogg’s has confirmed that a new iteration will be available in stores beginning in early 2019.
