ICE CREAM CONE CEREAL 1987
Who could resist putting the little ice cream puffs on top of the cones and eating them one by one?
I have one of these green octopus wall crawlers in my studio. It still works just fine after being washed with soapy water. This was from Froot Loops (1986).
NERDS CEREAL 1985
Like the nintendo cereal this had two separate compartments that had different cereal.
The smelly markers on this box were the first mail away I ever sent for. I was in second grade and I didn't understand the concept of the postal service. The day after I sent the letter I sat in a lawn chair at the curb out front of my house waiting for the mailman to bring me my markers. I seriously believed they were coming from Willy Wonka's factory. That summer I sat on the curb every morning for over a month. Finally the day they showed up I wore them all out in about three or four hours.
G.I. JOE 1985
SMURF-BERRY CRUNCH 1985
This one must have been around for a while because I remember eating craploads of Smurf-Berry Crunch.
I hope this brought back some marshmellowriffic memories. Sorry for you kiddos that had to eat malt-o-meal. This post has been part of your complete breakfast!!
