    I almost want to buy some cereal

    I saw these images on reddit. I'm amazed by this collection, actually. It's really kinda cool. Have you eaten any of these? I didn't know most of them even existed.

    These images inspire nothing to me, as I grew up with fresh French baguettes and grass-fed butter. These colorful boxes were definitely not on our table at a time when most western kids had cereals. But the smell of a croissant in a French bakery still triggers some very nice memories ...

    I find the boxes all kind of fascinating, actually. They are sort of beautiful in an artistic way. And they form an interesting cultural statement when you see them all at once like that in a collection. It becomes glaringly, horrifyingly obvious that this isn't food at all. Not to mention all the issues around marketing to children that become so obvious when it's all put together in a collection like that. Plus the one that looks like a "health food" but has chunks of chocolate makes me laugh. We were so gullible pre-primal, some of us anyway.

    If you didn't believe that big, ugly, multinational food companies exist, a box of Kellogg's (pick one, any one) in thirty different world languages should do the trick...

    Those kiddie cereals with all the colors and shapes were one thing. Its when they started putting bits of chocolate in "healthy" Special K and "organic" cereals that I broke up with cereal for good.

    I understand that totally. I've purchased records where the vinyl wasn't in that great shape, but the artwork and inserts were damn near perfect. So, I can see how you might care more about the packaging than the innards.

    Not food at all, but i suppose I can see art in the way they are arranged on the shelves.

    However, my eyes just gloss over these types of supermarket displays now, looking for the real food.

    The guy who collects them says he does not eat them. He keeps them mint in box. It's an actual collection.
