Starting today and going through March 7 at your local Target are special General Foods cereal boxes. The back of the boxes feature a different Atari classic.
I have seen all kinds of crazy things used to decorate game rooms — so this certainly fits the bill. Plus you can also get a few meals out of it.
From the General Mills press release:
“Consumers are drawn to nostalgia, and that’s exactly what Big G is bringing to the table this year with graphics from Atari classics like Asteroids, Centipede, and Missile Command featured on the back of each participating cereal. Navigate your way through breakfast with Big G cereals and the Asteroids maze, finding the clone and testing your knowledge with Atari trivia. Once packages hit Target stores, consumers can also check out www.grocerysavvy.com to further test their skills at Centipede and to enter in a sweepstakes for a chance to win Target Gift Cards and Atari merchandise. ”
The cereals that are featuring Atari games are: Cinnamon Toast Crunch® (17 oz.), Lucky Charms® (16 oz.), Honey Nut Cheerios® (17 oz.), Cheerios® (18 oz.) and Cocoa Puffs® (16.5 oz.).
Remember these are only going to be available at Target.
So be on the lookout.
