Like most products that have been around for ages, cereal box designs have gone through an evolution, with some hardly recognizable when compared to their vintage counterparts.
Some products have brought back their old timey retro packaging, like Doritos and Pepsi “Throwback.”
Cereal boxes have been known to revisit their packages from simpler times, with Cheerios, Trix, Lucky Charms and Cinnamon Toast Crunch showcasing their retro designs in recent years.
Cereal boxes have gotten flashier in their design elements, including characters who “pop” from the artwork, as well as other interesting elements such as the product logos and removal of references to sugar in the current day editions.
