Grins & Smiles & Giggles & Laughs Cereal
Ah, Grins & Smiles & Giggles & Laughs Cereal by Ralston – a product I sadly never got to try, but boy, did my older sisters rave about it! They loved saying the name over and over again, making me curious about what this cereal was all about.
Years later, I finally got a glimpse of the cereal through a commercial. It featured Cecil, the gruff cereal making machine/robot, who would produce boxes of this quirky cereal whenever you made him laugh. Now, let me tell you, that commercial was genius! I have no idea who came up with this seemingly improbable idea, but they deserve an award. It made me want to try the cereal even more!
I'm left wondering if anyone out there got the chance to taste Grins & Smiles & Giggles & Laughs Cereal. If you did, I'd love to know what you thought about it. Was it as delightful as its name and the funny commercial with Cecil? I can't help but wonder if Cecil himself stole the show or if the cereal was just as wonderful.
I guess I'll never know, but one thing's for sure – Grins & Smiles & Giggles & Laughs Cereal surely left a lasting impression on many of us who heard about it or saw that memorable commercial. It's one of those products that I'll forever wonder about and imagine how fun it would have been to taste and experience.
