Have you stumbled upon this amazing package at the grocery store yet? I honestly don’t know why vintage Marvel artwork is being used for this box art but it certainly caught my eye! Among all the Photoshopped Avengers: Age of Ultron cereal boxes and potato chip bags, this beacon of retro goodness shines bright.
The box art is like cracking open an old Marvel specialty comic or activity book, filled with stock promotional art combined with trivia and games, and even a collector card! I’ve only been able to find the cards for Iron Man and the Black Widow, but you can bet that I am on the hunt for the other two.
Th granola bars are pretty standard fare, but their individual pouches are excellent. These really do remind me of what it was like to be a kid reading comics in the early 80’s. Each packet has a character and a starburst with a bit of trivia. I’m assuming there is a Captain America bar out there, but I haven’t got one yet — I guess I need to eat a few more granola bars!
Why Marvel put out this packaging is a mystery to me, but I hope there’s more on the way.
