I loved Quisp & Quake in the 70's--I did find a box of Quisp 2 years ago in the supermarket--Shaw's--I couldn't believe my eyes, and I automatically was thrown back into my youth!! It was great!

I too found it on the store shelf briefly in 2000, I kept the box to this day. You can find the same cereal in the Quaker Bagged cereals section sometimes, called Sweet Crunch but it is rare these days with the health craze. I liked it more than Cap'N Crunch cuz it doesn't chew up the roof of your mouth. I fill the Quisp box with it.

This was my favorite cereal in the 70's. I rarely got it, because it was not generic and cheap enough for my mother. On those rare occasions when I did, I pushed it far back into the pantry in an attempt to hide it for myself.

I bought a case of Quisp (yippy!!!) two years ago. I went to Market Basket (grocery store) in Londonderry, NH and asked the manager to order it for me. It took her six months to find it. It's not a product on their shelf. She called and said it was in! What awesome customer service. I gave boxes to friends and family. They think I'm crazy. I LOVE Quisp! I'm calling Market Basket again today to see if I can order another case.

Believe it or not you can order it online from Amazon (gotta love the net) It is about $20 for six 9 ounce boxes but as a super retro gift it is pretty reasonable. Enjoy

Food Lion stores in North Carolina, or at least some of them, currently have Quisp on the shelves. Not sure about stores in other states but worth a try. Probably won't be around long though. Small box + big price = short life. I did buy a box on sale ($2.50) and noticed it does taste much like Cap'n Crunch, which happens to be much cheaper.

I just saw this cereal the other day for the first time in many years. I believe they had it at Target.

There is a small grocery store down the road from me called Spera's in Cicero NY that currently sells Quisp. It's $ 3.50 a box.

Quisp was awesome. I ate it all day, and shoved it up my rectum at night.

From the Saturday morning cartoon vault, Quisp discovers his spaceship missing, and a ransom note from the thief from Planet X. Equipped with jet pack, he tracks the thief down to Earth. While being pursued, Quisp's ship collides with the Quakemobile, then leaves the scene. Quisp regains his ship after kicking the thief out, then finds Quake after him...and furious! This aired on "Cool McCool" over NBC (9/24/66). Batman Comics creator Bob Kane and King Features' Al Brodax developed this spy spoof cartoon, with animation done in Europe. Voice talent was of three people: Bob McFadden (Cool, theme singer, Dr. Madcap, Jack In Box, Harry McCool, narrator), Chuck McCann (No.1, Tom/Dick McCool, Owl, Rattler, Hurricane Harry, repairman) and Carol Corbett (Greta Ghoul, Friday, other female roles). NBC ran the series, off and on, until 1969.

From the Saturday morning cartoon vault, a space-traveling bug collector captures Quisp, trapping him in a specimen bottle. Quisp distracts him with cereal and escapes, but not before trapping the professor in the same bottle. Quake (cowboy-superhero) makes a cameo appearance. This aired on "Here Comes the Grump" over NBC (1/24/70). Cartoon show featured Rip Taylor as Grump, who chased a young princess and her friend, Terry (Jay North), attempting to take over a magical kingdom, by stealing a crystal key they sought. Marvin Miller narrated each episode.
