Marshmallow Mateys is a brand of cereal produced by the MOM Brands food company located in Minneapolis, Minnesota. The company presented their first line of ready-to-eat cereals in 1965. Marshmallow Mateys includes marshmallow shapes in various colors.
Malt-O-Meal dates back to 1919 when John S. Campbell developed a hot wheat breakfast cereal he called Malt-O-Meal. The company officially adopted the name The Malt-O-Meal Company in 1953 (renamed MOM Brands in February 2012). By 1965, the company had entered the ready-to-eat non-hot breakfast sector with the introduction of Puffed Rice and Puffed Wheat cereals. While the company is best known for its line of hot cereals, it derives a large percentage of its sales from its 20-plus discount-priced bagged cold cereals - many of which are imitations of better-known national brands.
