G is for Grreat!!

I know you all remember Tony the Tiger! His motto was "Frosted Flakes....are grreat!" As a kid I loved Tony and I loved those frosty flakes! Today they are a bit too sweet for me but I will always fondly remember Tony and his cereal commercials! Tony is a bit older but still sticking by his breakfast cereal! Tony was introduced in 1952 and today in 2011 he is still going strong. He is also a popular figure in the UK advertising the sugary sweet breakfast cereal as "Frosties". There was Tony the cereal icon and Tony Jr. He has been popular for nearly 60 years! In the 1970s Tony was given a nationality and became an Italian-American. In early 2000 Tony Jr. replaced his father as the advertising icon!
I hope this brought back a happy memory or two for you tonight!
Now get moving and get over to Jenny's and visit lots of the other participates of this "G" post! I bet Rhonda could write a "G" post about her "G-Man"! Her sweet hubby worked for the government for many years! His pet name is "G-Man" here in blog world!
Now look at Tony the Tiger through the years and tell me if you think he is still Grreat.....

Aw.. that frosted cereal tiger.. I do remember tasting that cereal when I was a kid. They still sell it in the supermarkets but I don't get it for my kids as it's way too sweet and high with sugar.

I didn't know that Tony Jr. replaced Tony - guess he's just getting a bit old... Yes, it does bring back memories - I used to eat Frosted Flakes as a child. Granola now {:-D

Interesting, the changes Tony has gone through, yes.. But I have to admit, I haven't outgrown my own fondness for this sugary cereal! I don't know WHAT I'm gonna do, if and when the doctors tell me I can't anymore!... Have a Grrrrrreat weekend, Anne! ~tina

I always liked Frosted Flakes because they don't get soggy. I'm not much of a cereal girl but they are great for a light dinner or snack. I appreciate how you showed all the different "Tonys". He sure has gotten buff over the last few years! Thanks for stopping by and really enjoyed your pink pics! Happy Saturday.

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

This was a fun "G," Anne! We all grew up with Tony's "GGGGGrrrreat!"

KDL said...

I remember Tony #2, mostly. It's funny I ate this cereal up into adulthood but now that I have kids I won't buy that two-faced or what? My kids are busy enough without any extra sugar energy. Thanks for the stroll down memory lane.
