XE Spotlight's C-3PO's!
« on: January 25, 2005, 05:14 AM »
This is sorta OT, but it's definitely vintage-related. 80's/90's pop culture website X-Entertainment has a great article on the C-3PO's cereal from the mid 80's. In reading the article, Matt who runs X-E, recalls some vivid SW-related memories and how SW helped to somewhat shape his life. As someone who clearly remembers seeing C-3PO's on the shelf in the cereal aisle, I too was brought back to those days of yore. So enjoy this article and bring back your youth, if even for a moment....

Ah, I loved that stuff as a kid.

C-3PO's was nowhere near as good as Boo Berry, however.  :)

"Okay, the stench is pretty explosive. Twenty years of fermentation will do that".    ;D

The one cereal I did actually like: E.T.



It was chocolate/peanut butter long before anything else appeared on the market again

Hah! No wussy droid on that box :D

I probably had that box at one time in the dark, forgotten past.  Ah, the glory days...

I got sick once off of Frankenberry.

Thing is, I was 22 years old. ::) :D

And you're blaming the Frankenberry for this? :D

Well, yeah. I was fine till I ate the cereal.

Note to self: Frankenberry does NOT go well with tequila.
