Dino Pebbles Cereal

Post cereals have made some real winners in their time, and possibly at the top of that list is Fruity Pebbles.  And maybe right behind that is Cocoa Pebbles.  The combination of those little sweetened flakes of rice and the pitchmen duo of Fred Flintstone and Barney Rubble are a nearly unbeatable combination.

Nerds Cereal

Oh yes, the fabled Nerds cereal.  Now I’m not sure when the candy itself hit the market, but I do remember being a huge fan of it around 1985 when this cereal hit the market.  Maybe the commercials announcing its arrival got me hyped up, or maybe there was some advertising on the boxes of candy.  Either way, I was …..[CONTINUE]

Morning Funnies Cereal

If you’ve ever read much of what I’ve written, you should know by now that food is one of the more nostalgic things in my life.  I can tie so many great memories to different foods, meals, and restaurants that I could probably do this whole blog focusing just on food.  So in keeping with that tradition, I want to …..[CONTINUE]

Classic Commercials: Masters of the Universe Toys

If you’re on this site, then I probably don’t need to tell you just how big He-Man and the Masters of the Universe was back in the ’80s.  For a couple of years there, you couldn’t get through life without being bombarded with He-Man merchandise.  I know I certainly fell victim to the never-ending stream of advertisements and tie-ins, and …..[CONTINUE]
