Everything old is new again! I’m a big retro fan. I love the fashion, the styles, the simplicity. As my mom frequently used to tell us, everything used to be so much simpler! Or at least it seemed so.
Now, it’s time to dust off your sweat bands, leg warmers and neon tees and head on over to your local Target® to moon walk down the cereal aisle, as Big G cereals have brought back their “Retro” themed packaging, 80’s style. Big G cereals will be channeling their Retro roots and to help celebrate, they have partnered with Atari®, bringing classic 80’s games like Asteroids, Missile Command and Centipede to your breakfast table.
I received a really fun package the other day. Inside? Retro-themed boxes of Honey-Nut Cheerios and Cinnamon Toast Crunch. Not only are they delicious, but on the back are totally fun Atari trivia and activities. You can find 5 different retro-packages at Target from February to mid-March:
- Participating Big G cereals include:
- Cinnamon Toast Crunch® (17 oz.),
- Lucky Charms® (16 oz.), Honey Nut Cheerios® (17 oz.),
- Cheerios® (18 oz.) and Cocoa Puffs® (16.5 oz.)
I also got a $10 Target card to check out the other varieties and a code for a free download of Atari’s “80 Classic Games”. How cool is that? Yes, yes, I am a nerd. I downloaded it right away. Watching Asteroids and Millipede come up on my screen,
in all their nostalgic goodness, I was transported into a time warp of happy days
when I totally lost track of time and fought imaginary foes.
It was just the coolest feeling.
