A Message About The Future?


Who here can remember the Alpha Bits Wizard? I was just buying some more cereal to top me off for the week, when I noticed the Alpha Bits box and started reminiscing. I remember one commercial where the wizard took the children to his secret cave home and introduced them to Alpha the computer. And it wasn't long after that that Alpha had completely replaced the Wizard as Alpha Bits' mascot. Stupid computers. Always trying to take over everything.

Oh, and did you know that Alpha was originally modeled after an IBM computer? But now he's based on a Mac. Go Apple go!

Oh oh, and who remembers the Suger Crisp bear? Best mascot and theme song ever. Terrible cereal though...

I actually really liked Sugar Crisp....
Looking back, it's kind of strange how my mom let me have Sugar Crisp, which pretty blatantly tells you that what it's made up of will never be part of a nutritious breakfast; whereas Fruit Loops, which she never allowed, encouraged fruits.
Ah, cereal.
