Some breakfast cereals from the past now seem like deeply questionable marketing ideas. Or amazing ones. All (okay, most) of the cereals in this gallery were probably delicious, but few are still around. It’s usually obvious why.
While looking for a photo to illustrate a post about children and cereal cartoon mascots, I made some interesting discoveries in our Flickr pool: horrifying (or maybe just awesome) breakfast cereals that I really shouldn’t be surprised hit the market. Some are vintage, some are recent, but they have one thing in common: you would have devoured them when you were six years old.
