Alpha-Bits are Back

As a mother of four kids, I find myself down the cereal aisle every shopping trip. A few months ago, during one of my excursions, I came across a so-call "new" cereal. I stood there laughing as I took a picture of.........

Apparently Alpha-Bits are "new." What in the world was I eating when I was a kid over 20 years ago?

I got to thinking about all the things that appear "new" to this new generation of the world: Transformers, My Little Pony, Care Bears, Strawberry Shortcake, etc. Instead of being new, they are regurgitated back into newer forms and labeled as "new" instead of "the return of 80's stuff" (or something more eloquent).

Nothing makes me feel quite as old when my kids say, "You mean they had Transformers when you were a kid?"
