My Post Cereal Bobblehead Collection

I'm not even sure how many I still need to complete the collection. I have to go back and research but I think there were 2 series'. There was a time when cereals put  quality premiums in their boxes. Not anymore. I bought a box of Corn Flakes the other day because of the supposed free book ( Berenstein Bears: Back To School) included. I thought my 2 year old nephew would get a kick out of it. Turns out you have to go online, scan some qr barcode and bring in your receipt in order to obtain your copy. I could just as easily purchase one off the rack in half the time. Damn you Corn Flakes for getting my hopes up. Maybe I should have "read" the box more closely. Ironic. 


It also occurred to me, shortly after taking this pic, that the portrait I have the figures displayed on is  pre 9/11. I was going to post a couple of days ago but decided against it. I'm all for remembrance, but totally against the way the media likes to MK Ultra it into our brains.  This is how I like to remember NYC anyways.

  3. I'm not a huge Honey Combs guy, but I'd buy them if they started putting baseball bobbleheads into their boxes again.

  5. I don't remember this promotion, but that was a pretty cool premium. I don't eat cereal anymore, but did like Honey Combs way back when, and was a big fan of their WWF posters premium that they did somewhere around 1990.
