First introduced to stores as a breakfast/snack product in 1954 by General Mills, this ad for Trix "The Sugar Cereal with the Fruit Flavor" appeared in magazines and comics 2 years later in 1956. Pre-mascot days too as the silly Trix Rabbit wouldn't arrive on the scene for another 3 years in '59. Eat enough bowls kiddies and your eyes will turn into hopped-up sugared corn puffs too!
My favourite part of this superbly surreal ad though is the line at the very bottom-- "Now in Canada, too!" I guess that would make them "Fruit FLAVOURED" then, eh? Find out more aboot delicious Trix Cereal HERE!
EXTRA! My buddy Mykal sends over another great 50's Trix ad, this one from the back of Tom and Jerry Comics No. 148, November 1956 (by the way, my Trix ad scan was from Bugs Bunny's Halloween Fun #4, same year.) Thanks Mykal!
