80s-themed General Mills Packaging
Retro General Mills cereal boxes are making a comeback.
"It’s time to bust out those sweat bands, leg warmers, and neon accessories, and head to your local Target, as Big G cereals are bringing back their “Retro” themed packaging for the fifth time, 80’s style. Starting February 7 through mid-March, while supplies last, these limited-edition Big G cereal boxes are sure to turn heads down Target’s cereal aisle with their totally radical retro look.
“Partnering with Atari made the opportunity even more exciting as they celebrate their 40th Anniversary milestone. It doesn’t get more iconic than retro Atari games!”
“With the comeback of classic movies, late night TV shows, and neon colors on the runway, this year’s decision to highlight the 80’s was simple - it’s on trend,” said Tara Johnson, integrated marketing communications manager at General Mills. “Partnering with Atari made the opportunity even more exciting as they celebrate their 40th Anniversary milestone. It doesn’t get more iconic than retro Atari games!”
Consumers are drawn to nostalgia, and that’s exactly what Big G is bringing to the table this year with graphics from Atari classics like Asteroids, Centipede, and Missile Command featured on the back of each participating cereal. Navigate your way through breakfast with Big G cereals and the Asteroids maze, finding the clone and testing your knowledge with Atari trivia.
