Today I was getting my husband some Frosted Flakes for breakfast (I don't normally pour his sugary cereal, but remember he's recovering from surgery). They were on sale, and they had a toy from Cars in the box, so I bought two.
Whenever we went to my grandmother's house, she would let us buy a box of cereal. She ate raisin bran every day of her life, but in the cereal cabinet there were all these boxes of cereal that we had bought. Peanut Butter Captain Crunch was one thing that I remember choosing. I think that my sister would often choose something for the prize. Mammaw would pour the cereal out in a big bowl so that we could get the prize right away. Now that's grandmotherly love.
I do remember from a few prizes I've looked for in the recent past, that they were now usually between the cereal and the box, instead of inside the cereal, which really seems to make more sense anyway. Well, today, I opened the box and it was right on top. Talk about immediate gratification. Kids today just don't know how easy they have it.
