"Once an American icon, the franchise now operates mainly in Japan,
Philippines and other Asian markets and El Salvador.
Mister Donut was the largest competitor to Dunkin’ Donuts,
which was founded in 1950, before being acquired by Dunkin’ Donuts’
parent company, Allied-Lyons, in February 1990.
After the acquisition of Mister Donut by Allied-Lyons,
all Mister Donut locations within North
America were offered the chance to change their name to
Dunkin’ Donuts.
Now only a scattered few locations still hold the name Mister Donut."

I loved me some halfsies!!
but my mother would rarely let me get them
yet another chapter of my shitty childhood...
Lack of Sugary Cereal = Lack of Fun

But at least I had the crazy ball... !

"Halfsies were a breakfast cereal manufactured
by Quaker Oats from 1983 through 1984.
They were the result of the so-called "sugar backlash"
in which the amount of sugar in children's breakfast cereals
became an issue. The premise was they contained half the sugar
of regular breakfast cereals, and that they were
half-corn and half-rice."
