While looking for a photo to illustrate a post about children and cereal cartoon mascots, I made some interesting discoveries in our Flickr pool: horrifying (or maybe just awesome) breakfast cereals that I really shouldn't be surprised hit the market. Some are vintage, some are recent, but they have one thing in common: you would have devoured them when you were six years old.
