    I was 3 1/2 years old when this commercial was on TV, I was so excited, I pleaded with my mother to buy a Post cereal product. In our house, Kellogg’s was the only brand allowed. (1950’s & brand names were important) She gave in and bought me a box of Post Toasties. I WANTED THAT JEEP. By the time she gave in, the contest was over.
    Fast forward to 2009, I’m now 60 years old and getting ready to sell the old homestead. Cleaning out an old ice box in the basement, what do I find? that box of Post Toasties, hard as a brick, but still intact along with the original entry blank. Another true story from the Memory Vault.

    That’s a great story!
    We aren’t far from having to sell my parents place, so I can relate.
