Honey Comb Archie and Alpha Bits

Cereal is still an occasional snack for me, but when I was a little kid, it was one of my major sources of nutrition. And among all foods items, it is one of the most lucrative, competitive and high margin areas. Cereals have added fiber, low calories and whole grains as a response to the health-food movement’s criticism (Childhood Obesity campaign, etc.).

One thing that has not gone out of style is the packaging – advertising – and the prize inside, music.

60s –
7 songs on 4 different boxes
45 singles/eps that could be played a few times
cut out of box and hopefully not warped or skipping
possibly no plastic liner to keep cereal in after cutting box
no upc code
preservatives, no fiber, real sugar, no calorie count but ingredients listed
