Remember when you saw that cereal commercial on TV, where it mentioned the FREE PRIZE that came with every box? Remember how badly you begged your mom or dad for it the next time you went shopping? Remember how much you hoped that they would come back with it? Shit man, life was stressful as hell as a kid.
But anyway, it seems like everyone can always recall some of their favorites ones when you ask them. Digging the fucker out was always a chore though, and putting the cereal back in the box never worked because it always made it bulge out afterwards. My personal favorites were the Fruit Loops submarine that went up and down in water when you put baking soda in it, and the green finger spoon from Cinnamon Toast Crunch that spiraled around your finger.
I’ve always thought that mail order ones were bullshit though. Why the fuck would I want to wait even longerfor my prize?Not to mention shipping and handling costs, and then buying more of the cereal to get the extra fucking barcodes to send in with it. If the prize wasn’t in the box, it wasn’t worth it.
