Review and Giveaway: General Mills Retro Cereal #2 - Trix

This is my second giveaway post highlighting one of the Big G Retro Cereals.  I will be giving away one General Mills gift pack (which includes all five cereals and a gift card) each weekday this week.  Enter each day's giveaway to improve your chances of winning, although you can only win once.
 
Again this year for a limited time, Target stores are carrying the Retro editions of five favorite General Mills Big G cereals, complete with authentic "retro" package designs and cartoons from the '50s, '60s, and '70s.  These special edition boxes are only available until mid-March!
All the boxes have authentic Retro designs, as well as games and activities on the boxes.  For even more fun, you can go to GrocerySavvy.com to watch authentic retro cartoons, such as Underdog, King Leonardo, and Dennis the Menace.  You can also print coupons for General Mills products!

Today I'm highlighting the Special Edition Trix box - from 1968.  I never really ate Trix as a child, but I certainly remember the commercials.  "Silly Rabbit, Trix are for kids!"
The Retro packaging of course has the famous Rabbit on the front, and when you're finished your Trix you can turn the box into the "Trix Toss Game."
Remember, you can buy all the Retro cereals at Target stores, but you also have a chance to win some for free!  Thanks to General Mills, I am giving away a second Big G Retro cereal gift pack, which includes one each of the five special edition cereals, plus a $10 Target gift card!

To enter this giveaway, simply leave a comment on this post telling me your favorite thing about or memory of Trix. You must answer this question to enter.  Please include your email in your comment if it is not available in your profile. For extra entries, you may do any or all of the following, for a maximum of 4 entries in total (please leave a separate comment for each):

2) Follow Frugally Blonde by email
3) Follow Frugally Blonde on Twitter and tweet about this giveaway. (Leave a link to your tweet.) This may only be done once; no daily tweets.

This contest runs for only one week and ends on next Monday, March  14, at midnight. The contest is open to residents of the US only, and the winner must provide a valid mailing address (no PO boxes).  I will choose the winner randomly and notify him or her by email, and he or she will have 72 hours to respond.  Good luck!

I received a retro cereal gift pack from General Mills, who is also supplying the giveaway prizes.  I received no other compensation for this post, and the opinions are my own.
