Giveaway – Big G is Retro with Atari

Big G Retro with AtariGeneral Mills knows that some of us really loved the 80s so they teamed up with Atari and came up with some awesome retro packaging! These cool packages can only be found at Target though so hurry up and grab them while you can.

There were some really bad ideas during the 80s like huge shoulder pads, parachute pants, stretch-stirrup pants, neon shirts, and leg warmers. What the heck were we thinking? For the most part though, I really loved the 80s! I still love big hair, big clunky jewelry, and Swatches were awesome! Even the music was MUCH better. What do you miss about the 80s?

Every one that was a child during the 80s has great memories of playing Atari games. It was the dawn of a new age of games. I remember how jealous I was when my friends got an Atari system and I still did not have one. The first time I ever played Atari was at my cousin’s house. I remember playing Pong but my favorite game to play with him was Superman. What was your favorite Atari game?

So what are you waiting for? Head on out to Target and get some of these awesome retro Atari cereal boxes! Participating Big G cereals include: Cinnamon Toast Crunch, Lucky Charms, Honey Nut Cheerios, Cheerios and Cocoa Puffs. It is also Atari´s 40th Anniversary this year? Be sure to check out and test your online Atari gaming skills at Asteroids while also entering in a sweepstakes for a chance to win Target gift cards and Atari merchandise.


One lucky reader will receive a Big G Retro with Atari Prize Pack that includes: 2 boxes of participating Big G cereals, a $10 Target gift card, and a free download for “Atari 80 Classic Games In 1″.

Disclosure – Free products for review, information, and the giveaway have been provided by General Mills, Atari and Target through MyBlogSpark.
