Super Mario and Zelda Cereal
I don't even know where to start with this one. Yes, I begged and begged until I got this cereal. Yes, I bought it only because it was Mario and Zelda. And no I never finished a box of it. But I have a reason for not finishing a box of it; the Mario cereal was good (as judged by me at the time, like when I was 9 or so) but the Zelda cereal tasted like berry poop. So I would eat all of the Mario cereal, open up the Zelda cereal, let it get old and then beg and beg to get another box. Great marketing on their part.
I also used to eat Pac-Man cereal which was like Lucky Charms but with marshmallow ghosts and Pac-Men, and cereal dots. I would also eat all the marshmallows out of the box and then want a new one.
Oh, while we are on the subject: for awhile I only ate Lucky Charms for breakfast, and I would eat everything except the blue diamonds, which I would take out of the bowl and place on my body as some sort of 80's-marshmallow-y style bling. I got quite sticky from doing this, and I did it all the time. What was I thinking? (This was around kindergarten age)
Anybody else have crazy cereals when they were growing up?
