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.

"Ladies & gentlemen, it's with great admiration that I present for the 2,753rd time. The star of Jeopardy!... Art Fleming!" - Don Pardo on the last NBC telecast of Jeopardy! aired on Friday, January 3, 1975.
This early Chicago Blackhawks sports special is a fascinating look into one of Chicago's favorite sports franchises before the advent of 24/7 cable sports networks and the Blackhawks own Blackhawks TV on the internet. This practice session is also the precusor to the morning practice skating sessions that is occasionally seen these days on Comcast SportsNet.
A few days ago, a YouTube poster put up an entire edition of the 6pm "Eyewitness News" on WABC Channel 7 in New York City (see here) from January 8th 1981. That newscast was significant if only for the sports report - which dealt with the retirement of by-then New York Ranger Phil Esposito (who, as a 'Hawk, was seen in this part) as an active player, and comments from his brother Tony in which he spoke briefly about the retirement of another 'Hawk from this clip, Stan Mikita. (Because Espo and Mikita had served in the 'Hawks at various points in the former's and all through the latter's career, this item was Chicago-related in a back-handed way.)
I remember watching it often in between cartoons. I remember for example the one that was about the engagement of Prince Charles and Princess Diana (then Lady Diana)because it was something my paternal British grandmother always mentioned. I liked these news segments and I didn't feel talked down to. I was a smart child and hated anything that felt like it.
"In The News" didn't talk down to the kids. The features were almost what you got on the network news. They were well-done and concise, and the tone was that of someone explaining the news stories that the kids had heard while they were watching the news with their parents, something parents and kids used to do together.
