I’ve often wondered this while walking the cereal aisle in the grocery store. Cap’n Crunch looks like he would be the most likely cereal mascot that was actually based on a real person. Turns out it’s true, he is!
Cap’n Crunch’s full name is Horatio Magellan Crunch. Which is amazing. He was named after the famous explorer Ferdinand Magellan. A bonus fact… his ship is also called the S.S. Guppy.
I haven’t had Cap’n Crunch in YEARS but it might be time to pick up a box again.
