Tron Mini Flying Discs in My Shreddies

At some point, cereal boxes stopped containing toys. Now it's all about web codes and such. That's too bad, as getting the toy out of the box of cereal was a staple of my mornings in the early 80s, but that was a different time.

In the early 80s, I ate a lot of Shreddies. I think it was my favourite cereal for years. I have vivid memories of the cool toys I'd find in boxes of Shreddies, especially the Tron mini flying discs in 1982.

Earlier today, someone on Reddit asked about the demise of the cereal box toy, and that sparked a nostalgic trip down memory lane. Next thing you know, I'm Googling the Tron mini discs I so loved in '82, and a good man named Jason came through for me.
