This week in the cereal aisle: Snap, crackle, and redpop

Rice Krispies is debuting its 1st new flavor in 10 years — and it's bright pink.  (Today, 11/21/2018)
Yeah, right!  But is the cereal entirely new? Not exactly, because it turns out that a version of this cereal existed way back in 1983. Of course, back then it wasn't as brightly colored and it was only on store shelves for a limited time. A representative for Kellogg's told TODAY Food that the strawberry cereal that's being released in 2019 has a completely different recipe than its old predecessor.

From 1979.  Cringeworthy even then.
