I remember reading some years ago that the cereal aisle was the most profitable in supermarkets. I just can’t believe what a box of cereal costs today and am not willing to pay it. So we have eggs/waffles/pancakes/oatmeal/grits/french toast instead. MUCH cheaper

No Sears? Who cares about MySpace. But no Sears?

How about the mouth lacerating ‘Captain Crunch’? Have you got the scars to prove your devotion to Captain Crunch?

Captain Crunch is most famous for a whistle they included in the box as a promotion back in the sixties. Its perfect pitch did a number on the world's long distance telephone system (this was before the telcos figured out that in-band signaling was not a good idea).

The cereal was formulated by Arthur D. Little, a Boston consulting company. Aunt Pam's cereal.

Wow - never heard the whistle angle before - I thought it was bad enough they made a cereal that made me bleed from the mouth...

The lacerations simply made it easier for you to absorb the nutrients into your bloodstream. :-)

Finally, an explanation I could have wrapped my bleeding gums around! Slightly strange that I was ‘onboard’ with this ‘nutrient delivery system’ - it didn’t stop me from eating it! :0

Sears has been heading down since they quit selling their houses:

Now where will we get our 'Craftsman Tools'?

I always liked Sugar Smacks. Sugar and violence--what could be better? This clown is a little creepy though--in a John Wayne Gacy kinda way.

Sugar Bear was on Post Sugar Pops. He sounded like Bing Crosby (you probably don’t know who he is, though - too young!)

Remember the chocolate cigarettes? Or the bubble gum cigars? You could blow on the candy cigarettes wrapped in paper and fine sugar would blow off to resemble smoke! The libs would be tearing their hair out if they had them today!

One of the brands mentioned is MySpace. I agree. It has not kept up with FaceBook.

“Times like this, I feel like creating a politically incorrect food brand.”

I have one for you. A true story, I swear — back in the early 1960’s my grandmother used to buy canned oysters — the brand emblazoned in large letters on the label said “Nigger Head” and also featured a respectable picture of a middle-aged black male. It disappeared after the civil rights movements started.

yes remember the A&W in Flint Mi late 60s
It was located right next to the county jail
kind of a weird deal on a hot summer night with all the kids cruising thru and inmates literally hanging out the jail windows

Around here (cent Indiana) Sears is a lot like its corporate brother K-Mart.

Sort of a zombie store, doors open, lights on, merchandise on the shelves, but no people.

Our Sears isn’t necessarily packed with shoppers, but it’s a good place with quality products.

I really hate to see it disappear. I thought they were crazy uniting with K-Mart.
