I may be revealing my age but   does anyone else remember the breakfast cereal whose slogan was 'THE Breakfast of Champions ?  
It had pictures of the champions of those days and insinuated that their eating of the cereal was the reason for their success. 
I ate that every morning .....  It didn't help at all.
 
I guess even at that age I was rather gullible.

I hated that cereal, never ate it, and years and years later I somehow was awarded the Great Blue Loving Cup by Exede.

All is good. I love my Exede, but just so no one can see that I have Exede, I am using a dish with the Wildblue logo proudly displayed.

But is works fine, never been touched after the original installation.

I remember the slogan too -  it came out around 1927 and is still used today. By my rough calculation (while allowing for the ability to eat solid foods and formulate sentences). I'm sure my age is somewhere between 6 and 88 plus.

I was a Sugar Pops kind of guy, after dumping out the contents of the box shown at this link:

I felt cheated by Kellogg's when there weren't any actual frogmen in the box. I'd overlooked the fine print on the front of the box, read the contract on the back sent in my 25 cents and several weeks later achieved success as a scuba diver solely because of that. But lesson learned... read the contract, not the marketing hype.

We had a wheat field and silo's full of the stuff. If I wanted some, I had to make them with a hammer. One at a time...

If I was going store bought, if it didn't have a toy, or decoder ring in it, I went for Maypo. I liked the Sugar Pops also, but I was not allowed much sugar. I had wheat, bowls full of it, after about 2 hours pounding.

So, is that what's in the Blue Cups??? Will Exede ship???

I hope everyone reads your post and learns from it.

If I had followed your advice I wouldn't be having the problems I have now.

I noticed you have a blue cup too.  What was in your cup?

Absolutely nothing, unless it is full of hot air.

As I remember it the cereal said that it was  high in fiber too.

I have heard that Exede will ship,  I don't really know if this is so.  I have miss-read and miss understood so many things lately WHO KNOWS.  The way I heard it was the cups are free but there is a monthly shipping charge.  No word on how fast they would ship.
