Taking Cereal Mascots to Task....ots?
is this a good title?



I freakin' love cereal. I'd say it's in my Top 5 favorite foods. Over the years, I sort of gravitated toward the usual suspects - ya got yer Fruit Loops, Lucky Charms, Just Right, Sugar Crisp, etc etc. ETC. But about a year ago, while I was out prancing around town, I came across a sweet (NO PUN INTENDED - LMAO) deal on Cinnamon Toast Crunch. I remembered that it was pretty good, and that it was my bro's favorite cereal to get when we were kids. (We were allowed to pick out ANY cereal on our birthday ... I think he ALWAYS picked CTC. I was more adventurous and picked either Fruit Loops, Fruity Pebbles or Lucky Charms. Or, obviously, anything that turned the white gross milk into chocolate milk.)

Anyway. So I get this box of Cinnamon Toast Crunch home. I take the first bite. MY LIFE CHANGES. HOLY GARBONZO. These things are SOOOOOOOOO delicious!!!!!!!!! My brother was right all those years!! Wht was I messin' around with marshmallows? Ok, so a few months ago, they came out with new mascots to put on the boxes and feature in commercials. They're little cinnamon toast crunch faces!! And they eat each other!!!!! ughhghghhh. I am IN LOVE with them. Here they are:





I LOVE this one the best... little excited licking face!!!

eww... this one is sick... its eyes are cooked shut???


In my search of pictures of these new little mascots, I came across some other notable
cereal mascots from over the years. Let's take a walk down memory lane, shall we?

OK... this has to be the WORST cereal mascot of all time!!! What did this artist's rendering cost Kellogs, $12???


Mmm... one of my favorites.


YAHHH cookies in a different form!!!!!!!!!!!!


No comment.


This has to be the least scary ghost of all-time. Look at his relaxed, nonchalant face! His eyes are all sleepy. And his little cap is pretty cute. No, this is not scary. (The cereal looks like it might taste pretty scary, though.)


Waffles in cereal form?? Hmm. I wouldn't kick these outta my cereal bowl.


AND I have saved the best for last:

!!! KREAM KRUNCH??? Sick!! Look at this ice cream guy! HE is terrifying. More so than the ghost and clown put together. Also, "REAL ice cream chunks freeze-dried in a nutritious cereal"??? Does any of this sound nutritious? And how gross would freeze dried ice cream be? ughhhh.

  1. I also LOVE cereal, and I'm glad somebody finally talked about how great it is! I have boxes and boxes in my house!
    I also agree with all of your assessments of those cereal box mascots. I have never heard of Sugar Rice Krinkles, but I do like that they give away free arrowheads. Can't believe I missed out on that.

    In conclusion, this is the greatest Newsletter you've ever written.

  2. hahaha! Thanks Leah.

    I honestly have a cereal COLLECTION. I have so many boxes that I have to display them for guests. There's not enough cupboard room to hide 'em.

  3. I also have too many boxes to fit in the cupboard. I can't help it...whenever I go to the store and see cereal on sale, I have to buy it! It's a real* problem.

    *delicious
