We loved these squares as kids. I don't think we ever ate them for breakfast because we would eat them as snacks and they would be gone by the next day. Well, the chocolate and the vanilla packets were gone. The maple would stay in the box until they molded...which took about a week. Happened every time.

They were made by General Mills/Betty Crocker. My sister and I devoured the entire box in a weekend. I remember them as being somewhat dry but we loved them. Came in Chocolate, Chocolate Malt, Vanilla, Maple (yuck), and Cinnamon (2 each in a foil pouch).

They were a little powdery, but the chocolate flavor was good. I remember they came two to a pack. Maybe in the commercial they were eaten with coffee, but as a kid I much preferred milk.

These breakfast squares were soooo good! I miss them! I wish they were still around! I loved the vanilla the best. I thought the maple was more of a butterscoth flavor, but wow I just miss them! I would LOVE to see them come back! 4
