2010 Cap'n Crunch's Crunch Berries

And now for something completely different!

As a kid, I loved Crunch Berries cereal. Don't know why, because it sort of smells/tastes like plastic now, but I didn't remember that when I recently bought this box of cereal for nostalgia purposes (and I guess breakfast purposes as well):
Of course, like any good collector, I also noticed the writing in the bottom right that mentioned "Free Collector Cards On Back." Ooo...I wonder what they could be!

Well I'll get to the two cards I got down at the bottom of this post, but first I wanted to show off some of the random pictures on the box. For instance, I was curious as to how many cards were in this set. Luckily it was pretty easy to find out:
Oh thanks random guy from the back of the box. What should I do with these cards?
Oh...thanks again!

And this last guy on the back of the box didn't say anything - I just thought he looked cool. I like to think that's what I looked like as a 12 year old:
But no more messing around - time to show off my "loot." But remember, always ask for a parent's (or significant other's) help when using scissors!

Crunch Beast - No numbers or anything, just vital stats and "Greatest Adventures" with a random picture on the front. I shouldn't really call it the front since these cards are all front (there's nothing on the back). The collector in me wants to cut them down the middle and tape them back to back. Of course, then again I won't really be collecting this set, so I guess it doesn't matter either way.

Sea Dog - Clearly the better card of the package, especially since he's pretty much the oldest dog of all time. I wonder if this is like a final tribute card in baseball, because I can't see a dog living long past 154 Dog Years (which would be 24 actual years old following the standard rule of thumb).

And there you have it. Very random cards, but it's something this site hasn't seen, so I figured I'd post them.

Someone voted this "Hall of Shame"? I guess some people just don't like fun.

Totally lived off of Crunch Berries, and Peanut Butter Crunch and Cinnamon Crunch and Vanilla Crunch, and even regular Cap'n Crunch, as a kid.

Great cards.
