General Mills Retro Cereal

General Mills has released 5 different retro-style cereal boxes! Each is full of fascinating history and trivia.

Did you know Cheerios was the first prepared breakfast cereal?  It was introduced to American kitchens in 1945!

Lucky Charms was presented in 1964.

Honey Nut Cheerios was released in 1979.

Cinnamon Toast Crunch delighted the breakfast scene in 1984.

Reeses Peanut Butter Puffs brought some excitement to the table in 1994.

What are your memories of General Mills Cereal?

Mrs. B, a very peculiar person said...

Being fortunate enough to grow up in a home where Mother (my Aunt) prepared a hot breakfast of bacon & eggs OR pancakes & sausage OR oatmeal & ham, cold cereal was a rare TREAT for us. On those special occasions we always had 1/2 cheerios 1/2 lucky charms (my aunt always pre-mixed the two and stored it in a large canister).
I consider myself so very blessed to be carrying on my aunt's example. Being a stay-at-home wife and home school mom affords me the privilege of cooking a hot breakfast for my family most days. Cold cereal is a special treat for our kiddos, just as it was for me.
