General Mills Big G Cereals: Tuesday #gno Twitter Party on Retro Breakfast Memories
Whether you enjoy it in a bowl with milk or use it to bake tasty treats, cereal has been a staple in kitchen cupboards across America. So many different varieties of cereal have been introduced throughout the years and can still be found on store shelves. These brands have been a part of our popular culture for decades and some have even shared their debuts with notable and historical events!
Let’s play a little trivia game…
- What cereal was first placed on the shelves when black-and-white portable TV sets hit the market? Hint: The character is a bee.
- What cereal hit the shelves when Mattel’s Hot Wheels were first introduced? Hint: The character is a happy-go-lucky rabbit.
- This cereal was first introduced when Apple Macintosh made its debut. What cereal is this? Hint: Men in chef hats cover the box of this cereal.
- What cereal made its debut when Barbie turned 30 years old? Hint: If you eat these, you’ll be lucky all day.
If you guessed Cheerios®, Trix®, Cinnamon Toast Crunch® and Lucky Charms® in that order, then you are right on all of the questions. These cereals have been around for decades and over the years the designs on the boxes have changed to keep up with the times. To take cereal back to the good ‘ole days, General Mills Big G is featuring fun “Retro” package designs, vintage cartoons and promotions from the 50s, 60s and 80s. Retro versions of Honey Nut Cheerios®, Cheerios®, Cinnamon Toast Crunch®, Lucky Charms® and Trix® are available at Target stores while supplies last.
