About Corn Pops

Corn Pops is a breakfast cereal made by Kellogg's, described by the company as 'crunchy sweetened popped-up corn cereal.' Originally called Sugar Pops, it was introduced in 1951 as the sponsor for 'The Adventures of Wild Bill Hickok' radio show. The name was changed to Sugar Corn Pops in 1978, and then to Corn Pops in the 1980s, a time when many cereals dropped the word 'Sugar' from their titles. In January 2006, the name of the cereal was changed to Pops, but after a few months of poor reception, was changed back to Corn Pops. Sometimes, this cereal is just referred to as Pops. In mid 2007, Corn Pops launched its first line extension in many years called 'Chocolate Peanut Butter Pops.' In 2012, 'Cinnamon Corn Pops' were introduced. Corn Pops are made from milled corn and the American version has a flattened, smooth, bumpy shape. Canadian Corn Pops look very different; they are spherical and have a porous surface, similar to Kix cereal.
