A Little About Us
Imagine, if you could, a world where your childhood could be revisited by merely opening up the cupboard, the changing tide of commerce and fads didn't take away the joy of breakfast, and your favorite cereals never died. This is the world I want to make possible.
"Nostalgia In A Bowl."
Vintage Spoon is a dream that wants to make that place a reality. While the Big Corporate is only concerned with raking in the fat cash, the new world ushered in by the internet is letting people's voices be heard. Those who gleefully shoveled Frute Brute™ or Yummy Mummy™ into their mouths are now adults and still want the goods from the past. Don't believe me? If you look up any of those, or really any discontinued cereal, that's practically all you'll unearth: people begging for it back.
This is where my vision comes in. The kings of the breakfast bowl don't care about the minority, but when all those quelled voices rise up at once, it becomes quite thunderous. Someone should answer this prayer for puffed delights, and I'd like to be the one.
Vintage Spoon brand cereals would be an internet based food distributor that would cater exclusively to those who wanted to relive the variety of breakfast, back when you could get a bowl of just orange or grape cereal, where vanilla was not newly offered. Essentially, it would be your typical off-name brand of cereal, a close replica of a more widely known name cereal produced on a low quantity scale that was shipped in the bag alone.
However, what was lacked in shiny boxes, it would be made up for in variety. Can you imagine being able to get your cereal in one color? Like the green ones best? Get yourself a bag of lime puffs! Impossible to find blueberry cereal? Not under the watch of the Vintage Spoon! Even strange, new concoctions could be brought into this world! The consumer could even help steer the direction of the next great breakfast blast!
While it may seem like but a dream, the cogs are already fast at work planning this endeavor. I mean it. I'm on track to a well off job with little to no living expenses, and I need a good investment. I would love to make this a reality, so I want to know who is with me? Drop me a line if you would be supportive of this effort.
The Birth of Vintage Spoon
If was the last day of March, 2007, when a recently seen Trix™ commercial spurred some hot debate over at the forums of Reality's End. "New puff shapes? That's what it used to be! Is all cereal reverting back to when it was the best? When we were young?" This prompted a tide of nostalgia and web surfing for old cereal, leading to the purchase of a hefty case of the berry varieties of monster cereal. The love shown for these hard-to-find cereals at the site was only matched by one thing: the call to return the discontinued monster cereals. This sparked on idea: wouldn't it be great to resurrect the dead? If people still want it, why not make it? Heck, there's a lot of cereals I wish were around still, too, and I know a lot of other people feel the same way. Hopefully, that will be able to be proven right someday. More hopefully, some day soon.
Vintage Spoon - Your Childhood Is Still Crunchy
Products In Development
The forerunner of the industry, Goblin Crunchers was the original notion jested upon which grew into this dream. It is a parallel to another fruity corn cereal loaded with marshmallows that had twice been brought to market and twice shot down. The overwhelming popularity of chocolate drowned out its chance in the spotlight while even blue fanatics were able to keep the other struggling counterpart afloat.
Goblin Crunchers is packed with crunchy goblin head shaped corn pieces, each of its own delicious fruity color and flavor. A wide assortment is there, including lime, grape, orange, cherry, and whatever else is wanted to be in the mix. But, of course, where could any good cereal be without marshmallows? Crescent moons, some skulls, and even some grave stones fill the bowl, too.
