Big G Retro Cereals for 2014

Big G Retro 2014


Have you noticed a “new” look to your favorite cereals lately?  Each year General Mills rolls out retro boxes of popular Big G Cereals.  This year the cereals with that are getting the retro makeover are:

  • Reese’s Peanut Butter Puffs – 1994
  • Lucky Charms – 1965
  • Cheerios – 1945
  • Honey Nut Cheerios – 1979
  • Cinnamon Toast Crunch – 1984

I just love the Retro boxes.  There’s just something about them.  They look very fun and they just remind me of simple times and childhood.  My favorite Big G cereal is Lucky Charms, so I was happy to see it getting the retro look this year.

I was most surprised to see Reese’s Peanut Butter Puffs on the list.  I LOVE this cereal.  I actually remember when it first came out.  I was 11 years old in 1994, and of course, as soon as I saw the cereal, I had to try it.  I can’t believe it’s been around for 20 years!  It almost makes me feel old….almost.   It’s been a while since I’ve had Reese’s Peanut Butter Puffs, so I was happy to be reintroduced to the cereal again.  It was like having breakfast with an old friend.

You can find all these Big G Retro Boxes at your local Target.  Check the cereal line, or look around the check out line for all 5 varieties.

 Disclosure: I was selected for this campaign through Platefull Co-op and received free products from General Mills. The opinions are my own.
