C-3PO's Cereal

C-3PO's cereal was introduced in 1984.  I would have been around 8 years old, and I remember first seeing them in the store.  I was obsessed with all things Star Wars and I had to have them.  It was quite the negotiation with my mom, as they were more expensive than other cereal, and we didn't have a lot of money.  But finally she relented and bought me a box.  Imagine my disappointment when they were terrible.  I don't remember exactly what they tasted like, but I remember I hated them.  Apparently I was in the minority opinion as according to this cereal wiki (yes that is a thing) it was on shelves until 2000.

It did have a pretty exciting commercial:
