Post Alpha-Bits is a sweetened oat and corn cereal with 11 essential vitamins and mineralss and the building blocks for healthy brain development.
And it’s educational. Each morsel of cereal is a letter of the alphabet, so you can spell words to your heart’s content! Especially since it takes a very long time for the cereal to sog into mooshy mush.
Since Post Alpha-Bits has been around the block a few times and then some, we’ll go old school with the write-up and give you some history. Alpha-Bits first arrived to the cereal shelves in 1958, but lost its way into our spoons in 2006 when we were on a “no more sugary cereals for kids!” kick. In an effort to conform to the change in consumer taste Post introduced sugar-free Alpha-Bits in 2008, but later the same year returned in its original form with all the yummy sugar a kid (and a kid at heart) could ever want.
And now, for your viewing pleasure, an original commercial:
Ahh, the good old days, when “sugar sparkles” were considered good energy for kids. ABC-DEELICIOUS!
Ahh, the great new days, when Post doesn’t give you a toy but instead free admission to Six Flags! Happy riding, Cereal Lovers!
