Here we have a set of Pez mini-dispensers that came free in boxes of General Mills cereal back in 2001. They were packaged in a clear window on the front of each box, which sort of took away the fun collecting element associated with cereal premiums. On the plus side, nobody had to go "coo coo" by eating a hundred boxes of Honey Nut Cheerios just to get "lucky" and nab that one, last elusive skinny-headed Trix The Rabbit.

I don't know why all these are oddly stretched and flat-looking, but I do applaud their Prozac-like wide-eyed happy expressions. Lined up in a row, they look like they just escaped from an EST seminar or a funny farm.
