I Love The Taste Of Vintage In The Morning.

So I’m home today with the Kyality Kids. Mrs. Kyality was in the hospital for most of the night with some awesome stones. Unfortunately, I’m not talking the old, British rocker kind; I‘m talking the prenatal, labor-inducing kidney kind. So after a long night, it was refreshing to wake up to a sweet little blast from the past. Apparently, General Mills and Target (of course) have teamed up to re-release and market a limited edition of vintage cereal boxes.

The line includes classic editions of Kix, Lucky Charms, Wheaties, Honey Nut Cheerios, and Golden Grahams. But the "Corn Kix" box is by far my favorite. The custom typography is unique, clean, and bold. The muted blue and burnt orange color combination oddly enough works extremely well. Luckily the cereal itself doesn’t taste too vintage. But best of all, it perfectly complimented my delicious glass of lemon-lime Airborne placebo. I don’t care what you say, that stuff still works.
