When I took my daughter to Target last night, I had no idea that we would be walking through a giant Bomb Pop!
Rarely do advertisements or store signs have any affect on my shopping habits, but I’ll admit — after walking in between these two giant Popsicles I had Bomb Pops on the mind, and I did leave the store with a box in hand.
Kids have been enjoying Bomb Pops every summer since 1955, when they were invented. I was going to take a picture of my daughter eating hers, but it was gone so quickly that by the time I found my camera, it was gone! I tried searching Google for a picture of a kid eating a Bomb Pop, but I found this picture on Afomo’s Blog instead and it was so sad that wanted to share it.
I was treated to a nice surprise yesterday as my Wife came home from work. She had stopped by out local Target store and picked up a box of Cheerios. A smile crossed my face as I saw the Atari Activities blurb on the front of the Cheerios box!
The Activities on the back of this particular Cheerios box is a connect the dots “puzzle” featuring the icons of Centipede. The side bar says there are five activities all together and they can be found on Cinnamon Toast Crunch, Lucky Charms, Cocoa Puffs, Honey Nut Cheerios and of course Cheerios. There are also a few tasty tidbits of trivia on the back of the boxes. My Wife said that only the Cheerios had the Atari Activities on her visit…might explain why she didn’t grab me a box of Lucky Charms.
I’m not sure this is a Target exclusive as there is nothing on the box that declares this…but you might want to check your own neighborhood stores and let us know what you find!
