Gypsy Creams

Snap, Crackle and Pop

Woman / 17th August 1973

Kellogg’s have suggested recipes to consumers of Rice Krispies for years, but this is the first example of activities I’ve seen them suggest without using the famous cereal. The recipe suggestions continue up to the present day on their website, but it’s a shame they’ve turned Snap, Crackle and Pop into such annoying twats on the US version.

Bloody hell, I tore that page out of Woman – I made the indoor garden!

Gypsy Creams: reminding YOU of your own childhood. Actually, those t-shirts were a marketing opportunity missed by Kelloggs, I think!

This does look faintly familiar, so I guess this was redone every few months for years.

I had 3 Rice Krispies books that you had to save coupons for (one was a magic tricks, one was outdoor games , and I can’t remember what the last one was) from about 1985 . My folks might still have them in the loft, will see if I can dig them out. The magic tricks one was quite good.

If only marketing departments of these huge companies had proper archives then we could plunder them for their delights. I once emailed Walls to ask what other things were on the Wall’s Sweet Trolley apart from the Arctic Roll.

No response.
Nuffink, not even a “huh?”.
