Kellogg’s OJ’s Cereal

1980s, Cereal, Food 2 452

Kellogg forgot a a few important things when they touted OJ’s Cereal to kids in the 1980’s:

1) Westerns and Cowboys weren’t popular with kids anymore.  In fact they weren’t popular for over a decade.

2) Single colored cereal is boring.  In a world of colorful Fruit Loops, Trix, and Lucky Charms, this cereal is nothing more than a boring, lazy fruit loops.

3) Oranges?!!?!? ORANGES?!?!?  Come on.  If you’re going to sell cereal to a kid, you can’t talk about how it’s supposed to be good for you, like eating fruit.  As a secondary note, who on God’s greet earth wants to finish their cereal, only to drink orange flavored milk?

    Personally I think this cereal was pretty good, and Kellogg’s needs to bring it back. It was fruity and delicious, and I loved the little orange shapes. I still remember this commercial, and I thought it was rather original. Im 35 now, and I still reminisce about that taste. Bring it back!!!!
