Breakfast Cereals

If you grew up in the 80s you very likely spent most, if not all, of your breakfasts with a bowl of cereal and certainly your Saturday mornings in front of a TV somewhere with a sugary bowl of goodness. Maybe you even got a glass of juice and some toast as part of “a complete and balanced breakfast.” Either way breakfast cereals and all their jingles, jangles, prizes and characters hold an honoured place in the 80s collective memory.

Cereal wouldn’t have sold so well in the 80s without all those awesome mascots that started decades earlier and were given a sugary ‘power-up’ in the late 70s. Mascots didn’t just make kids grovel to steal all of Lucky’s lucky charms or masochistically scarf Trix in front of the Trix Rabbit. They also made boxes of pure sugar seem somehow less awful to Denise Austin-worshipping mothers who plunked down the cash for that stuff. The fibre craze of late was a big deal in the 80s too; though ad execs then didn’t tote the healthy heart effects of the stuff. No, they unapologetically sold cereal laxatives. I’ve included a lot of the ‘boring’ cereals your parents might have tried to choke down in the pursuit of regularity.
