Quisp Cereal was introduced to the grocery stores in 1965! Yes, it goes such a long way back in time. In the beginning, the Quaker company introduced two kinds of cereal with the same ingredients – Quisp and Quake.
The sole difference between Quisp and Quake was the shape of the cereal. Quaker asked the public to decide which cereal should stay on the market and they chose Quisp and Quake was discontinued in 1971.
If you are looking for a perfect cereal, you would be looking for something that has lots of flavors, even when it is layered with milk, and of course, the other important thing is that you would not want to add fruit or sugar to bring some taste. Lastly, it should not get soggy very fast.
You can get that all from the all-time favorite and the highly adored cereal – QUISP CEREAL!
