"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.
1959? If they were introduced in 1959 how could it be that I have old radio commercials from 1952 on the radio program 'Gunsmoke' For Sugar Krinkles; "That sugar rice treat; that's just right sweet"?
