Description
I have to correct the former entry here. Trix (are for kids!)in the '70s were round shaped like Kix cereal. They were powdered sugary coated fruit flavored. Our local zoo in Phoenix would have 25c machines that would sell a handful so you could feed the alligators and other animals Trix. Yeah Trix of all things. Proctor n Gamble changed them in the late 80s to fruit shaped and an acidy fruit flavor because I remember being furious and calling them to complain and sadly was told that no they were not bringing the original shape or flavor back. Too bad for them because I never bought another box again.

The Round "Puff" Shape Is Back!! But, The Flavors Are Still the Same.

I agree with the poster... I LOVED the original round puff TRIX, and NEVER bought them again after I tasted the fruit shapes. They did taste different and it is too bad the kids now-a-days wont be able to enjoy the wonderful "Original Trix".

I loved that cereal. I would see it on TV. The yogurt ad on TV was funny, too. I remember the TV slogan "Silly rabbit, Trix are for kids!!!" That always cracked me up.

They most definitely do taste different. And they're not as sweet. I wonder why this information is so hard to come by on the web.

I miss the original trix from the 70's. They were always a special treat I enjoyed when I visited my grandmother's house.

Bought a box of Trix last week, this was my favorite cereal when I was in high school. They have ruined this cereal. No flavor and the fruit shapes should have stayed...

A Saturday morning retrospect on TRIX cereal: The TRIX rabbit first appeared as a stuffed toy around 1960, and was advertised on various Rocky/Bullwinkle cartoon shows. The silly rabbit became a cartoon by 1963, and new cartoon shows like Tennessee Tuxedo and the Casper cartoon show aired the first of those commercials. Other TRIX commercials in my collection include those from 1966 in which boxes contained a toy whistle/magnifier. I,also, miss when TRIX was three flavors only. Today,s TRIX is over-saturated with weird flavors.

Found a Trix TV commercial with a combination whistle and magnifier toy inside boxes. The Rabbit plays detective to fool the kids into giving him cereal. Commercial aired on the Saturday morning "Beagles" (NOT Beatles) cartoon show on CBS (12/3/66). The Beagles were a two-dog rock group, sort of mimicking the Smothers Brothers. Cartoons produced by Total Television, which also cranked out Tennessee Tuxedo among others.

General Mills introduced Trix in 1955. Found an early ad on back cover of a Bugs Bunny comic book from 1958. The famous rabbit first appeared, in rag-doll form, in 1960, along with the red background on boxes. The rabbit became a cartoon, on boxes and in TV commercials, in 1963. The first commercial quickly changing his appetite from carrots to Trix, wishing for the cereal by rubbing a magic lamp. A boy on flying carpet takes the cereal from him, saying, "Silly Rabbit...Trix are for Kids." This aired on the "Bullwinkle" show (NBC) and "Tennessee Tuxedo" (CBS) on 10/5/63.
