Hands-down, one of my all time favorite cereals. It also works well instead of rice krispies in the usual treat recipe.
I remember when CTC joined the cereal scene in 1985, I was in 5th grade and it was actually “exciting”.
The poorly scanned box on the left is from a 1985 ad. You can barely make out the lined-paper background. The title
is in multi-color marker/crayon font. I’m not sure what the reason for the elementary school theme is other than to appeal to kids ( like myself at the time) but still, you’d think maybe something more reflective of the product might be used. Nonetheless, it looks cute and the smiling toast is adorable.
The new box keeps a multi-color font but that’s about it. The background features the cereal swirling down to what looks like a slightly psychotic baker at the bottom of the box.
I think even less appealing is their new…thing in commercials featuring two pieces of the cereal that, eat each other(?)
I don’t know what’s going on but I’d prefer the more innocent version of CTC. I will say it still one of the best tasting cereals out there.
