Nassau Candy, Hicksville, N.Y.
Chocolate-coated cereal. Need I say more? NOT JUST CEREAL combines the flavor and crunch of real cereal “drenched” in smooth milk chocolate. It comes in four varieties: Fruity O’s, Cinnamon Crunch, Toasted Rice and Honey Toasted O’s. Each is packaged in cute, colorful, easy-to-carry snack packs shaped like milk cartons. Not surprising that this innovative product is made in the USA. The all-American breakfast and children’s snack just got sweeter.
