Invasion of the Retro Cereal Boxes

Good Sunday morning everyone! As you eat your morning cereal here is something 2 chew on. It looks like General Millz is releasing some old-school style cereal boxes. Check out those weird looking mascots! Overall, it's a nice refreshing change to look at. Has anyone seen these on the shelves yet? Do they come with retro prices too?

Hopefully the cereal doesn't taste as old as these packages look.

Then and now:

Which do you like better??

And to go with your morning cereal we also have orange juice. Is anyone else really peeved at the new Tropicana package? It suxx so bad. I didn't even recognize it anymore when I saw it in the store. And how can you beat that iconic straw-in-orange image? You can't. That's why they are switching back to the old package. Thank you.



Sorry to go all "designy" on you, but sometimes you just gotta. It's someone's job to design the stuff we use all the time without thinking. Suck on that.

Have a good day.

I do like the cap on the renovated OJ carton. Like a little orange nose.

They gotta keep up with the times. Thing change. Gotta stay trendy. Tropicana that is. But the old timey stuff is cool. Trendy, too. Have you seen Pepsi's new logo? It's pimp.
