He likes it! Hey, Mikey!

I love going to the dollar stores because I never know exactly what I might find, whether it's a "BMX Bandits/Evel Knieval" double-feature DVD or a 27-year-old Fotonovel.

This time, it was a special commemorative pack of Pop Rocks. To celebrate 30 years of everyone's favorite soda chaser, we are treated to the packaging from the 70s -- the one I remember so fondly.

It's no "Ice Castles" Fotonovel, but hey, what is, right?

    Everybody gets the Mikey commercial wrong these days. It wasn't that Mikey would "eat anything". It was that he "hates everything", which is why it was a big deal to his brothers that "he liked it!" (the Life Cereal). Otherwise, you'd have to believe that Life Cereal ran an ad saying that their cereal was so bad that only a kid who would "eat anything" could like it.

  2. You're absolutely right. I've fixed the header to reflect this. Thanks.

  3. the first comment makes sense, but with so many people remembering the 'he'll eat anything' line, perhaps there was another commercial that spoofed or parodied this one? I remember the 'he'll eat anything' one, and that mikey was sitting on the other side of the table - but then that could just be my mind playing tricks on me!
