A look inside the cereal box

Cereal-box-frontAs I went to enjoy my breakfast this morning I decided that I was in the mood for some cereal.

I enjoy many different breakfast cereals, but today I opted for Honey Bunches of Oats.

It was an unopened box; well, it was before I took this picture of it.

After opening the lid and the interior plastic bag, I started to think about this packaging.

As far back as I can remember, every boxed breakfast cereal I have encountered has been packaged the same way. The same outside cardboard box and interior plastic bag.

Where’s the innovation?

How does this packaging handle examination by the currently highly-focused “green analysis” experts?

What were cereal boxes like before this standardization?

Is there anyone out there trying to innovate, if only for a nice change of pace?

    Thanks for the link. Now that I see it I definitely recall seeing these in the store. I imagine you do lose some of the convenience when it comes to pouring, but it does seem like a good move in terms of conserving materials.
