What is the shelf life of Golden Grahams?

The other morning I noticed a "magic eye" hidden 3-D image on the back of a Golden Grahams box.

And after pausing till I could see the surfer-shredding-like-only-a-Golden-Grahams-eater-can,

I thought to myself, "Wait a minute. Magic Eye?! Is this cereal box from the 1990's?"

Can't believe I was reading your last post, just as you posted this Golden Graham question! I'd definitely look for an expiration date on that box! LOL

Hi Jeorge, we meet in Rome last July, (i was one of the guy with the Dharma Shirt!). I would like to say thank to you for your time and for being so nice with us. I was searching if you had posted the photo you took with us... but i see you don't! Too bad... :)

Goodbye and thanks again!

priscilla said...

ROSA ALONSO said...

But... don't you eat some fruit?

João FB said...

Hi Jorge, from Portugal!
Love your work! Love your blog! Love youuu! XD

Heather said...

But does cereal expire? Doesn't it have a shelf-life of, like, forever?

Well, if you end up on the toilet all day (perhaps the one you wore around your neck), you'll know...

D said...

Man, ask Ethan Suplee.

capcom said...

Sheesh, good question to be asking. Or, are the Magic Eye pix coming back into style again? Nah. :-)

When the writers strike, Jorge, will you write one of the Lost scripts as a scab? I'd love to see a Mancoon encounter.j

Laura said...

It depends...you found it in a Dharma Station?

Great costume and amazing halloween gourd!!

Besitos

Anna said...

I was also confused when I saw that box. Sadly, I haven't been practicing my magic-eye skills since 6th grade and had to look at the bottom of the cereal box to see what the image was supposed to be.

Joey D. said...

In my opinion, all cereals have the same shelf life. They are all good until they start getting stale. The moment that they lose that crunch and become stale is the moment that they need to be trashed......that's just me.

Indigo said...

Saludos desde Chile, Jorge!
Aca te queremos bastante!
Ojalá que luego nos visites!

Suerte con las nuevas filmaciones...
Espero con ansias verte de regreso.

Saludos al equipo!

venus said...

Hello Hugo! I'm a great Lost' fan I like you and Kate but I LOVE Josh, please give him a kiss and a hug from me.

marcovizque said...

Dude! i love you!

Arnaldo said...

Jorge, best regards from Brazil. Hugo's our favorite character from Lost. Thanks for bringing Hurley to our lives.

Cian Taaffe said...

Hi Jorge,

You are an absolute legend. Love LOST and Hurley kicks ass.

Anyway, I'm one of the editors for one of Ireland's biggest college newspapers and I would love to organise an interview with you sometime between now and January (before the new season basically), which could be done over the phone or via e-mail.
I was just wondering if you would agree to that? I know you're extremely busy and probably wouldn't usually do interviews with Irish press, but if you realized how much this meant to so many Irish students, I'm sure you'd agree.
Over 22,000 people read this newspaper and for a small country like Ireland, that's a lot of people.
I'm sure I can't post my e-mail address here and I'm not sure how else to contact people through blogger, but even if you could let me know if you're interested in doing this interview through the blog, I'm sure I could get contact details to you (or vice versa) somehow.

Please consider this and either way if you could give me a yes, no or a maybe it would be brilliant.

Good luck and hope to hear from you soon.

Best wishes,

Cian Taaffe,
UCD College Tribune

Kisses from Brazil!

Enrico said...

Hey Jorge,
could you possibly post something about what the heck is going on there with all the wga strike thing? How the atmosphere is, if you're still working, what you'll do if you stop filming.. y'know, these kind of things (or at least what you're allowed to say about it)..

Thanks and keep up the good work :)

pichuneke said...

I remember the first time I saw a Magic Eye.

We brought the book and I was looking at it, at a coffe shop of Callao, in Madrid. I was... 13?

Anyway a friend of me (5 years later) was saying everybody that the book was false. It was a big conspiracy, because he couldn't see the 3D figures. And every single person that bought that book was lying :lol:

naná said...

hey boy!!!
i'm a brazilian fan!
you're the best!
we love you babe!
came to brazil to visit us!!

blackmamba said...

hi jorge!
can you tell us anything about the strike??

thanks! ^_^

maven said...

Jorge: How's the cast and crew taking the strike? What do you think about ABC announcing that they'll show the 8 completed episodes in Feb 08 even if they don't have the rest of the season finished?

Renee said...

Dude! Step away from the moldy grahams! Those went out in the 90's for sure...I hated them, because I could never focus long enough to see anything! Magic eye pictures I mean...I love me some Golden Grahams!

Renee and Alex say hi!

Berilio said...

Jorge please make a post about all the strike issue, we need to know what's going to happen next, we deserve it. First they cut down the show from 24 episodes to 16, then they take 9 months to start the 4 season, and now they going to gave us just 8 episodes??? it's not fear, I think i'm going to start to download the episodes illegally from internet...(I know it's not your fault)

Carolina Perfeito said...

There is this Eglish Style Pub in Fullerton and they serve this dessert called Sticky Toffee Pudding, and it is VERY delicous.

We went to the Pub last saturday and realised that Sticky Toffee Pudding's flavor resembles Golden Grahams...

ALSO, i went to High School with the guy who played "The Golden Boy" in the Golden Grahams' commercials!!!

Peace out Bro!

Guendalina said...

I don't know what to tell you on the Golden Grahams front, but I remember you saying a while back that you like fan art. I made something I thought you might get a kick out of. It was inspired by Damon and Carlton's jokes about a "zombie season seven" on the podcasts. :)

Pyroman said...

Hey Jorge! Are you honoring the writers strike by not talking to us?

kelly said...

you know what's scary? I bought a box of Golden Grahams last month that had that Magic Eye surfer. Clearly, their design division has limited resources.

tiffany said...

There was this guy who believed very much in true love and decided to take his time to wait for his right girl to appear. He believed that there would definitely be someone special out there for him, but none came.
Every year at Christmas, his ex-girlfriend would return from Vancouver to look him up. He was aware that she still held some hope of re-kindling the past romance with him. He did not wish to mislead her in any way. nike shoxsSo he would always get one of his girl friends to pose as his steady whenever she came back. That went on for several years and each year, the guy would get a different girl to pose as his romantic interest. So whenever the ex-girlfriend came to visit him, she would be led into believing that it was all over between her and the guy. nike womens shoes The girl took all those rather well, often trying to casually tease him about his different girlfriends, or so, as it seemed! In fact, the girl often wept in secret whenever she saw him with another girl, but she was too proud to admit it. Still, every Christmas, she returned, hoping to re-kindle some form of romance. But each time, she returned to Vancouver feeling disappointed.
Finally she decided that she could not play that game any longer. puma mens shoes Therefore, she confronted him and professed that after all those years, he was still the only man that she had ever loved. mens puma shoesAlthough the guy knew of her feelings for him, he was still taken back and have never expected her to react that way. He always thought that she would slowly forget about him over time and come to terms that it was all over between them. nike shox Although he was touched by her undying love for him and wanted so much to accept her again, he remembered why he rejected her in the first place-she was not the one he wanted. nike 360 air maxSo he hardened his heart and turned her down cruelly. nike running shoesSince then, three years have passed and the girl never return anymore. They never even wrote to each other. NIKE air shoes The guy went on with his life..... still searching for the one but somehow deep inside him, he missed the girl.
On the Christmas of 1995, he went to his friend's party alone. "Hey, how come all alone this year? Where are all your girlfriends? What happened to that Vancouver babe who joins you every Christmas?", asked one of his friend.nike air max He felt warm and comforted by his friend's queries about her, still he just surged on.
Then, he came upon one of his many girlfriends whom he once requested to pose as his steady. He wanted so much to ignore her ..... not that he was impolite,wholesale nike shoes but because at that moment, he just didn't feel comfortable with those girlfriends anymore. nike shox torchIt was almost like he was being judged by them. The girl saw him and shouted across the floor for him. Unable to avoid her, he went up to acknowledge her.
"Hi......how are you? Enjoying the party?" the girl asked.
"Sure.....yeah!", he replied.
She was slightly tipsy..... must be from the whiskey on her hand.
