- Originally Sugar Coated Rice Krinkles, Sugar Sparkled Rice Krinkles, then Sugar Krinkles, Sugar Rice Krinkles, and finally Frosted Rice Krinkles.
"Sugar-Coated Crisp Rice"
Krinkles disappeared in 1969, making room for Post's new puffed rice cereal, Fruity Pebbles.
The original mascot was a rice-loving Chinese boy who was all the rage in the early 1960's. Memorable characteristics of this mascot were his high-pitched Chinese accent and a hat which was actually a little bowl of Rice Krinkles. His name was So-Hi because he was only "so high" off the ground.
Krinkle the Clown
A cr-reepy clown, who no one likes except clowns.
