Fruity Pebbles is a variety of fruit-flavored cereal introduced in 1971 by Post Cereals. The cereal built on the popularity of characters from “The Flintstones” animated television series. Fruity Pebbles used the familiar faces of Fred Flintstone and Barney Rubble to attract children to its cereal of crisped rice. The younger characters of Bamm-Bamm and Pebbles also make appearances on advertising for Fruity Pebbles.
At first, Post Cereals was going to name its cereal Rubble Stones and Flint Chips, but an advertising executive suggested the alternative moniker of Fruity Pebbles. The cereal was a reintroduction of Sugar Rice Krinkles, which had not found a successful niche in the market. Post Cereals licensed the Flintstones characters from Hanna-Barbera to create buzz for the sweetened cereal aimed at children.
