    This poll is for General Mills cereal only!!!

    Which was your favorite icon?

    I did not include temporary or fad or limited edition cereal icons...but I guess if they were your favorite, you can vote OTHER.


    If the above list does not have your icon, maybe they were from one of these other brands...
    Kellogg's Poll is here.
    Post's Poll is here.


    Anyone getting a sugar craving reading this poll?

    Feel free to link old commercials if you wish.

    Why is this broken up by brand? I'm not sure why that would be important, but whatever.
    Mine would be Tony the Tiger. I had a little plush of him when I was small.

    There are way more than 13 choices (the boards only allow 13, and one of them had to be "OTHER"). I didn't want to leave any off the list. So since there was sufficient options for the 3 brands, I group them up by the brands that own them.

    Logical :wink:

    Doh... :eek: 

    You're right...
    Honey Nut Cheerios - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    In my defence, he didn't have that name in the 80s and 90s when he was buzzing around on my TV during commercials :tongue: 

    But good to know.

    Count Chocula wins. All votes to the contrary are wrong.
