And People Are Concerned About Our Sugary Cereals

While doing some research on cereal, and boy howdy was that a blast, I ran across some amazingly, sugar-filled cereals from yesteryear. And here's the deal. Sure I grew up with Cinnamon Toast Crunch, Frosted Flakes, and Cap'n Crunch, and sure I may have an unhealthy addiction to sugar filled cereals, but our Mom's and Dad's have no room to complain. Their generation was full of horribly bad for you cereals. We may have cereals full of marshmallows and shaped like cookies but look what they had.

Donuts and ice cream, now a part of a complete breakfast.

Ans sure while we had some awesome characters, ferocious tigers, whimsical leprechauns and an over zealous toucan, look at some of these insanely messed up creations surely thought up from some coked-out marketing.

Let's make a cereal and remind our kids of all their dads and grandpas that have died in World War II dogfights.

While we all love Boo Berry, Count Chocula and Frankenberry, the world has all but forgotten the magesty of Frute Brute.

Cocaine and clowns plus a little bit of LSD

Now with more woody goodness

I never knew that the Cap'n had so many problems on the seven seas, but apparently he was constantly fighting off overbearing hippos and overtly sexual whales.

And finally here are some classic movie tie in cereals with a priceless commercial.
