Free Stuff In Cereal Boxes. What Happened???
Maybe it's just in the UK but I remember as a kid (in the 90s) getting free things in cereal boxes. Like holograms or toys. Regular cereals not just kids ones as well. Like a recipe book or something in special K.

Now nothing.

They had those as well but that was for fancier stuff like golliwogs and mugs.

But almost all packs had some sort of useless booklet or trinket.

The boxes are too thin now. Fucking can't even fit a corn flake in side ways. Cereal is for idiots anyway.

The Grandparents used to keep us hellions busy with the send in box top stuff. We would visit in the 60's once a year, the Family Truckster trip :). They would save up box tops and send in for everything on the back of the boxes for a year. They would have a big box of all the Kellogg's toys and games. Everybody ended up happy.

They were tricking us with trinkets, but better than being still & listening to the grown-ups prattle on.

Ye Haw, off to the porch with a giant box of mystery trinkets. Running around the yard imagining it was real. thumbs
