Someone Bought This: WWF Superstars cereal (with free flip book!).

WWF Superstars Cereal boxes featuring The Ultimate Warrior, Hulk Hogan, The Legion Of Doom, and Hogan/Warrior together

I found this article on WWF Superstars cereal. Ralston’s cereals were always pretty good (Remember their Batman cereal?). The WWF Superstars cereal box helpfully says:




Wait a minute… “Sweet, but no pushover”?

I get the cute wrestling wordplay, but I don’t even understand what that’s supposed to mean in relation to the cereal. That sounds like it’s describing me, not a cereal.

The cereal pieces were shaped like stars (Oh! As in “Superstars“? How clever!). I was hoping for pieces shaped like The Ultimate Warrior’s face paint or Hulk Hogan’s bandana or something.

At least it has no evil Tropical Oils (was that a big health concern in the early 1990’s or something?). I want one of those Flip Books they gave away! Does anyone have one of those? Please comment below if you do.

Oh man, if I’d won the contest, I could’ve met R.D himself at WrestleMania VIII since he was lucky enough to be there in person. That’s better than a crummy ol’ Flip Book any day!

I’m surprised there was never a commercial for this for them to air on WWF TV around the time. You’d think that would be a no-brainer.

    what no WCW or ECW cereal?

  2. Zeedeevel says:

    I actually have the green flipbook with ultimate warrior on it. The cereal is long gone

    What? No “Koko B Ware puffs?”

    Doubt that my parents would spring for this cereal, as cheap as they were concerning brand name foods.

    Since when did Kraft Dinner or something very closely resembling it become a cereal

    I particularly like the box with Warrior and Hogan together. I can’t imagine them posing together all willingly like that. I also can’t imagine them wanting to share the cereal either. They probably came to blows over it. Then again Hogan is in the front with the Warrior behind him so maybe Hulk told Vince he would no show Wrestlemania VIII if he wasn’t given preferable treatment on the cereal box.

    Also I don’t know how old the cereal is but isn’t it sort of breaking kayfabe with the Warrior being so prominently featured here when he made his “surprise” return at Wrestlemania VIII?. Was he not in the middle of another contract dispute? If I have my facts all wrong then disregard this.

    The LOD box is cool too. It looks like Animal and Hawk are sneaking up on the bowl of cereal to give it the Doomsday Device.

    Sadly the cereal was pulled from the shelves due to a mistake made by the line workers. They accidentally put little spikes into the L.O.D. package. The mistake was dicovered by an irate customer named Rocco Doll who screamed upon his discovery, “What a bunch of dummies!!!”

    I tried this cereal back when I was heavy into wrestling and it was popular. The package is the best part about it. That is all.

    I actually own another box from this cereal line that is much harder to find – it’s the Bushwackers box. Not sure if it never made it to shelves (due to the cereal being cancelled or what) or if it was not on shelves long (due to the same reason), but I got one from someone that worked at the place many of these cereal boxes were printed back in the day, and hoarded many samples away for himself.

    “Tropical Oils” sounds like yet another unpopular teaming of Primo and Epico, this time slathered and glistening with Johnson’s like WBF bodybuilders.
