Artifacts of the Analog Age: Cheerios
This is “Analog Agent Benjamin” coming at you this week with…. Cheerios
As much as I liked the TV ads for cereals like Trix, Luck Charms, and so on, the only cereal my Mom would get me was Cheerios.
You see, my Mom did not like the idea of me eating any cereals that had the words “Sugar”, “Chocolate”, or “Marshmallows” on the box. So when I asked for stuff like Fruit Loops, Trix, or Frosted Flakes, she would always get me Cheerios, Kix, or Wheaties instead. None of them were bad, but it would have been nice to at least try one of the other cereals for once. The only time I ever got to get anything other than Cheerios was when I was at a friend’s house and he had a box of Lucky Charms. I tried them out, and they just tasted awful.
So, what kind of cereals did you eat when you were a kid?
