General Mills Retro Pack Giveaway – Week 3 (2 Winners) Ended

Last week we featured Lucky Charms and Trix.. this week we are featuring Cinnamon Toast Crunch (one of my favorites!) and Honey Nut Cheerios.. in case you  missed last weeks giveaway here is the scoop and your chance to win:

Last year we celebrated with giveaways and this year Mom Fuse will be giving away a Retro Prize Pack each week for a few weeks while we feature some fun facts about our favorite cereals! General Mills was kind enough to provide us with a box of each of the five cereals and a $10 Target Gift Card for the promotion.

While supplies last, Target stores nationwide will carry five limited-edition General Mills Big G cereal boxes featuring fun “Retro” package designs and cartoons from the 50s, 60s and 80s. This year, the packaging was chosen based on a national survey conducted by General Mills, which asked consumers to pick their favorite Retro package designs. The top packages chosen include Cheerios® (1956), Trix® (1968), Honey Nut Cheerios® (1984), Cinnamon Toast Crunch® (1984) and Lucky Charms® (1989).
