BREAKING NEWS: Froot Loops’ days on Saturday morning television may be numbered!

It's the end of an era!
According to the New York Times:
Froot Loops’ days on Saturday morning television may be numbered...

Kellogg also announced that it would stop using licensed characters or branded toys to promote foods unless the products meet the nutrition guidelines.

The voluntary changes, which will be put in place over the next year and a half, will apply to about half of the products that Kellogg currently markets to children worldwide, including Froot Loops and Apple Jacks cereals and Pop-Tarts...

At breakfast Anthony found a Corvette Sting Ray car kit in his breakfast cereal box and Nick found a Junior Undercover Agent code ring in his breakfast cereal box but in my breakfast cereal box all I found was breakfast cereal.

I'll have to further investigate Quisp, because this change in Kellogg cereal marketing suggests the downfall of civilization. I'd like to imagine that one of these days I'll get my special plastic koi toy inside my cereal box one of these days.

Those corporate motherfuckers are talking about laying off Tony, Toucan Sam, Snap, Crackle, and Pop! This means war.

I like your Krispy Koi (with pin shaped marshmallows) idea though. It would sell well in SLC.

Flailing,
Isn't it sad. And Tony, Toucan Sam, Snap, Crackle, and Pop! were around years before kids in America became obese yet they are be being unfairly blamed for the phenomenon!
Oh, are you referring to my Nietzsche Koi Pops? In SLC Krispy Koi would better name for marketing purposes - not to mention including an Olympic pin toy inside.
Aren't you going to play 6 Degrees this week?
