So here in North Carolina, one of our local cheap grocery stores is Food Lion. If you’re not familiar with Food Lion, you may remember they were the grocery store that was caught on tape years ago with less than sanitary practices in their meat department. Anyway, on a quick trip to Food Lion today, I got pictures of several pictures of the hideous mascots on their generic cereals. These are actually slightly better than the ones they used to have, but not much.
First is this turtle mascot for Peanut Butter Crisp Crunch. The head of the turtle isn’t bad— it’s your standard cartoon turtle head that you might learn from one of those mail order learn to draw courses, but then it’s got arms that appear to either be filled with peanut butter or the poor turtle’s got some sort of crippling, degenerative muscle disease.
The dinosaur thing for Confruitti Crisp is probably one of the better ones of the bunch. I mean he’s still not fantastic looking, but not that terrible either.
The turtle for Crisp Crunch was actually the first one that caught my eye. He starts off as a pretty normal crappy cartoon turtle… and then for some reason they gave him an orange Guido puff haircut. He’s like the Pauly D of the cereal mascot world.
And then finally there’s the Berrry Treets bear. Of course he has to be a bear, because there’s a “bear” in Berrry. But there’s not a “cracked out crazy red puppet bear with dinosaur spikes on his head” in Berrry.
