In the golden age of breakfast cereal,
manufacturers weren't wasting their time promoting health benefits or movie-marketing tie-ins.
Back then, it was all about combining sugar, grain, fructose syrup, and corn, and topping it all with a little powdered sugar
. Basically, breakfast cereal was the most delicious mini-meth lab you could find in a cardboard box.
Add a few psychedelic monsters on the front with some purple marshmallows inside, and you had the recipe for a sweet breakfast addiction.
Our memories are still fond ... At least the memories that weren't lost in the glucose haze.
Here are some of our favorites
. Let us know if we missed any.
