Merry Christmas from Chips Ahoy!

I want to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas!

Recently I picked up this package of Chips Ahoy! cookies. I really love the Cookie Guy mascot and this special edition Christmas packaging. These are available at Wal-Mart in promotion of the Merry Madagascar DVD release.

Ho ho ho!

Remember Garfield cereal?

Amongst my collection of cereal premiums was the Garfield sticker sheet below. It was still sealed in the package along with this interesting coupon.

I do not remember a Garfield cereal from Quaker Oats, but this indicates that it was on the market at least in 1985. The coupon expired in May 1985.

We can see that the cereal came in both raspberry and blueberry flavors. There must have been two different styles of cereal boxes, likely very colorful and similar to the illustration on the coupon.

Instinctively, I wonder how the taste of blueberry Garfield compared to monster cereal staple Boo Berry, but alas, I will never know.

This one is still a mystery to me. Perhaps it was a test market, was otherwise short-lived or it was ubiquitous and I just missed it. Does anyone remember a Garfield cereal from Quaker Oats?
