Hi Everybody! Today is Ruby Tuesday and I have a new badge for you! Feel free to take it and use it for your posts. Of course you can use any of the other badges we have...
It was created by Burton Morris and the details are below*
And now for my post today. Did you ever notice that the RED dishes of Cheerios and milk on the Cheerios' boxes form RED heart dishes when lined up next to one another?!
Isn't that the greatest? I noticed at Costco's this past weekend.
Good for you General Mills! A very clever advertising gimmick!
I've put up Mr. Linky below for you to sign and then comment.
Please visit your fellow bloggers, okay?

Cool, I never noticed the hearts lined up. Great segue from yellow to red, too, Mary.
Nice new layout.
I don't think they stack the boxes in my supermarket that way. But still, it really is clever!
This IS cool! I'm sure I never noticed that.
You have got a keen eye my friend. I so love Cheerios and a great marketing campaign. :)
First of all Mary I love your new template - beautiful fall look!
Cheerios is one of my favorites.
I'm looking more closely when I go to the grocery store this week. I agree that it's a terrific ad gimmick. I didn't realize it didn't show the entire bowl on the package. In my mind it did!
Forgot to say that I love the new badge!
No, I had never noticed--and it is my favorite cereal!
Dear teach Mary,
I like the new angle of the Cheerios, even if I don't eat them.
You sure have a photographer's eye, spotting all these new way of thinking red.
I'll try to copy your new badge.
Oh, I am a PC clumsy. Hubby Gunnar has spent a whole day making my machine walk and talk again.
I've got to manage this on my own.
Clever marketing department! I like the new badge. I think I will copy it now...
wow, that's really neat that you noticed that Mary.
Love your scarecrows! And the new badge..
Very cool photos. Cheerios are the best!
Ya know... I gotta say I never noticed. But I don't spend a lot of time in the cereal aisle either. No if you'd been in the cannoli aisle or somethin' I mighta noticed.
D'ya suppose they've made a heart-healthy cannoli yet? And if they did would anybody wanna eat it?
Cool capture -- and a sharp eye!
Cheerios is a fun name as it sounds. The whimsical art and shelf placing gives a 60s Warhol piece of art. Cute!
they look amazing!..who'd have thought a few lined up boxes of cheerios would create such an impact!..btw love the new RT badge & your new autumnal background :)
That is quite clever! I don't know these boxes, but it is good to see that a business has thought out a display possibility!
Hi Mary, thank you for the new Icon. I will try it out, probably for next week although I might change tonight when I update my post.
I will update it if I find the answer to my quiz.
Thank you for putting up with us for one more time. And please don't stop.
Your cherios are left over from Valentines Day. Inside they are like all the rest.
Am I wrong?
I do like the little street-side park. It makes a good place to eat a knisch and drink some coffe while reading the paper.
Well aren't they clever.
Aren't you cleaver for noticing it!
Mines blood-thirsty, so very red! An old one this week. Busy!
That is so cool! Good eye Mary!!
And they're good for us, too.
Yeah, but MAry, if you por milk in those bowls the water is going to run out the crack!
I love cheerios ;)
Oh that is great breakfast...Happy Ruby Tuesday. Mine is ready.
I love your template, the color is nice and I like the new badge too, cute.
Wow ... it sure looks like FALL here. Alas, I'm wishing for a bit more summer even now ;--)
Hmmm ... I don't think I've noticed the red dishes that form a heart on the Cheerios box before. How about that? Kewl new logo!
Hugs and blessings,
Nice display of the cereal on the shelves. I hope that makes consumers buy 2 boxes just to have the heart displayed at home as well :)
That IS a cool idea from General Mills indeed! Love your new layout!
What a clever idea!
I never noticed that before, it goes right with their heart-healthy advertising campaign.
Cool! I love Cheerios
You want to hear something sad? I eat Honey Nut Cheerios every day of my life! They're heart healthy!
that was a hearty post:) clever I liked it.
Wowie, I wonder who dreamed up this little idea! I'm gonna go check out our supermarket to see if they display them similarly. Thanks for hosting Ruby Tuesday. This is my first link-up.
Dear Mary, those cereal boxes look great. Probably more nutrition in the boxes and colored ink on them, than in the cereal itself...Happy Tuesday. :)
Wow very neat. I never noticed that before either. You can really see that at a big line up that they must have at Costco's. Cool.
oh mary t..those cheerio boxes!
what a good idea..cheerios is the only kind of ceral that bernie will eat!
the new badge is very nice!
i try to do as you, say visit the ruby red bloggers but sometimes it is a lot!
i will just have to try harder....happy ruby tuesday...love terry
That's funny, I never saw that, because we don't have this brand in Belgium.
Mmmmmmmm I love Cheerios! Great pictures! :)
I love your new header and as I am fond of hearts, I love those cereal boxes!! which are not available in Europe, though.
Wow, I like this new look. Cool!
Wow, that IS a clever package for effective display. Well done, General Mills, and thanks for seeing that for us. A happy idea!
one of my favorite breakfast.:P
I love your picture this week. We always have Cheerios in the house. It's my fav. Never noticed such a line up though.
AND - I adore your new header!!!
I don't see this design in Singapore. I better take another look the next time I go to the supermarket. :)
Love it! And I love Cheerios, to. Have you tried the new Multi-grain variety?
Ha, that's a real good find ! Next time i'm in the supermarket I am going to look if we have boxes that also form figures, but I doubt it. Yes, those hearts are a keen observation and fun.
NO....I didn't know this!!!! For heaven's sake, I'm speechless!
My R T is up. Have a great Tuesday.
I see lots of familiar names posted above; however, this is our first time on Ruby Tuesday.
HI from Greensboro Daily PHoto.
Love the way the hearts line up on Cherrio's. Brilliant marketing.
What a great idea. I've never noticed it before either. But, I'll be looking for it now.
And the colours remind me of a comment left by merisi recently on mine,that red and yellow arouse deep-seated sympathy,so they are often used by food companies in marketing campaigns.
I posted in the wrong blog but hope you enjoy it anyway and maybe have a look at my doilies.
Love the scarecrows!
Happy Autumn, Mary...love your wallpaper.
What a great find. I have to say i will never look at a display the same again:-)
I've posted too! Going to work now but will be visiting you later :)
I rush past these thing so quickly, I don't know if I would have noticed! But I like it- very clever!
Well I'll be a monkey's uncle. LOL I never noticed that about the Cheerios! Don't think they are lined up quite like that at my store :) That is a totally awesome set of photos!
Happy Ruby Tuesday!
Great combination of red and yellow! Love the look of the new badge. Have a wonderful week ahead! :)
Hello Everyone!This is my first time to join this photo meme. Happy RT!
I have honestly never seen this little advertising line up. I thought they were just round bowls. Very clever! I should keep my camera handy for just such occasions.
Love your new background. Very festive. You can almost smell fall in the air today.
It looks like I did it again. I played but forgot to add the link. What a great find, those boxes, very clever indeed!
Hi! I haven't participated in awhile - red just hasn't been jumping out at me.
Enjoy my post!
I really like your new header! It brings the spirit of the season. I saw yesterday our pool is closed and realized - summer is over :)
love the new look of your blog
I am not following form this week, but I bet there is some RUBY in the pictures I posted today
Pictures all week long!
i have to say that is very clever indeed!
Hello Mary. Lovely badge. I like it.
I'm participating once again.
That's pretty clever - I hope somebody got paid for that idea!
It sure does look pretty!I'm all for anything that makes people think of LOVE!
great new badge!=)
that's awesome! I never noticed that before.
We buy Cheerios at least twice a month and I have never noticed this. Great shot.
