Hmmmm so they made a cereal that was EXACTLY like their other cereal Kix? Who was the marketing genius behind this Comment posted by owenrock on Thursday, September 10th 2009 at 6:22am.
It was sweeter than Kix and had a golden box for the maple flavor and this green one for the fruity Trix-tasting kind.
This was way before they came out with Honey Kix and Berry Berry Kix, so I guess they were experimenting with the marketing. Soon after this they realized that cereals marketed as healthy actually had to be healthy and not brown Trix in a box with kids exercising on it.

Fuzzy: I wish you found another Kenny Rogers mail order record album TV commercial from the same early 1980's time for the 2 record set "Gold Dust and Gold Mine" featuring songs from the Kenny Rogers First Edition era.
The other big question: Which station produced this ad? If WBBM, then its cuts from one slide to another differed significantly from the clunky "fade-out--fade-in" transitions for which New York sister WCBS Channel 2 was famous for decades, from the '50's well to the '80's. But then, practically every Chicago station, I.I.N.M., had RCA TK-27 film chains through which we all saw these slides (and films), and a few by this time may've even gotten the newer TK-28's.
Put'n On The Ritz - Best guess is that it eventually became a place called Cafe 22 (the addresses match based on a newspaper article), and was at one point the Lombard Beef n' Barrel. I gave up trying to figure out where the eff this place was.
Inn and Around - Became a nightclub called Temptations, changed names to "Come Back Inn Sports Bar & Grill", then went back to Temptations before closing in 2012. Yelp says there was also a club called Club VIP there at some point.
Saints & Sinners - Apparently next to a cemetery, how lovely. Now housing.
Erik the Red - Now an Irish pub called Blackthorn Pub.
Tovia Club - Now called the Chicago 21 Club. Most definitely no sign of 2-million dollar anything here.
The Vineyard - Looks like the whole shopping center was given a makeover at some point, so it sure as hell ain't there now.
