Cheerios turns 70!

70 years ago, the cereal cheerios was first sold, feeding people from a year old to 108 healthfully, a generation at a time.

i once thought i had a ghost in my alpha-bits cereal. it said, "ooOOOoo. oooOOOoo...."

but then i realized i was eating cheerios.

lol, but seriously, i just heard on cbs news radio that today is cheerios' 70th birthday.

who doesn'!t love those little o's?

My favorite cereal! Gotta eat 'em quick before they get soggy! Love them with just a tsp of sugar and fresh cold milk.

Dh said the ones he ate this morning didn't taste that old.

I've been eating them for most of that time. A week or two ago someone posted a thread showing Cheerios was one of the cereals that have dropped off a lot in sales. Since every baby in the country eats cheerios from their high chair trays and spill twice as much on the floor, it's hard to believe.

I love Cheerios.. any old way. I like them on their own for cereal or topped with different things (dried cranberries, raisins, sliced banana, alittle brown sugar, etc). My favorite Cheerio is the Honey-Nut cereal. My mom loved it, and I became hooked on it.

It's also good in party mix (Alix's Nuts & Bolts). Of all the cereals, I think I love Cheerios the best.

The cinnamon ones aren't that good. Nobody here liked them. In fact, I was wondering what I can do with them.
