The pencil drawing versions of these designs are delightful-georgeous shapes and fluid line. I remember you working on these things at Purdums in 2001. Cheers Gary! Arna

elliot..
it is sort of like a corn pop..but with about 300 % more sugar added..bright yellow too..makes the milk yellow..!
oh -and a bowl full can make an under 5 flip out in under 10 minutes..just what you want when trying to get them ready for school..

I thought a Golden Nugget was more like a dangle berry- or a chegg nut!

Anyhoo- I always loved these. So spontaneous and full of life- they definately represent that sugar kick. You must be the king of cereal commercials! would love to do another coco pops wityez!

Terrific stuff! Too bad about the pricing conflict, that can be really frustrating. Too bad they don't know a good thing when they have it.
