Daily 70s Spot: Spoon Size Shredded Wheat cereal (1972)

"Crunchy, natural goodness in every bite." (Spoon Size Shredded Wheat, 1972)

“Crunchy, natural goodness in every bite.” (Spoon Size Shredded Wheat, 1972)

“What could be more natural?”

Here’s a healthy Daily 70s Spot for your Friday. A Nabisco Spoon Size Shredded Wheat cereal commercial. Spot aired in August of 1972.

We usually had a box of this in the cabinet when I was young, along with Raisin Bran and Cheerios. The cereal I really wanted; Lucky Charms, Cap’n Crunch, Trix, etc., had to be begged for and only went into the shopping basket about once every few weeks. I begrudgingly thank my mother for moderating my sugar-seeking fanaticism.

*Note: The spokesman in this Spoon Size spot is very familiar but my brain just can’t come up with a name. Any help would be appreciated.
