Totally Radical! Retro Big G Cereals at Target {Giveaway}

As a child of the '80s, I grew up on cassette tapes, Hanna Barbara cartoons, Atari and old-school Cheerios.  I'll admit, it wasn't a time of high fashion--in my opinion--and I nearly gagged (with a spoon, no less) when I saw the neon-colored women's accessories as I strolled into my local Target(Note to young buyers: you WILL blush with shame upon seeing photos of yourself wearing these years later).

However, another tastier retro item has recently taken up residence at Target, Big G cereals with 80s throw-back packaging, starting this month and continuing into mid-March.
Participating General Mills cereals include: Cinnamon Toast Crunch® (17 oz.), Lucky Charms® (16 oz.), Honey Nut Cheerios® (17 oz.), Cheerios® (18 oz.) and Cocoa Puffs® (16.5 oz.), each with Atari-themed games on the back.  (Didn't you just love reading the back of the package while slurping down Cheerios as a kid? I sure did).
Speaking of Atari, did you know it's its 40th Anniversary this year? Be sure to check out GrocerySavvy.com and test your online Atari gaming skills at Asteroids while also entering in a sweepstakes for chance to win Target gift cards and Atari merchandise.  I sure would love to tackle Space Invaders and Pac-Man again.

WIN IT!
Are you ready to slide up to the 80s again at the breakfast table?  I have a little prize package for you to win.
  • boxes of participating Big G cereals
  • $10 Target gift card
  • A free download for “Atari 80 Classic Games In 1”
