Still, I am nostalgic. So when I saw this display of retro cereal packaging in Target this morning it brought me right back to 1979.
Even though we didn't get Count Chocula or Boo Boo Berries in my house, I loved watching the commercials and got all warm and fuzzy when I saw these images. I had a very happy childhood and please me have no regrets that I didn't get to eat this dreck. Like my mom, I won't buy these cereals for my children. That they weren't kosher then nor aren't kosher now is also a reason to avoid purchasing them, but just as important, they are junk for the body and soul.
Lest you think I shun this stuff fully, time to reconsider. All this chit chat of sugar cereals doesn't preclude my children from eating Whole Foods' brand of sweetened chocolate rice cereal on Sunday mornings.
And now behind Curtain #1, straight from the baby's mouth...
