I only got 8 right. I guess I need to eat more cereal.
I'm generalizing from one example here, but everyone generalizes from one example. At least, I do.

I wonder if we got the same three (Coke, New York Seltzer, and OK)? The OK was a complete guess.

You know what, I think I got Crystal Pepsi rather than Coke right but the other two were the same as yours.

Name That Cereal!

Failed immediately.  I never heard of half of those cereals.  :shrug:

Remember That Drink?

I got the Coke II question (my grandmother lived in a soft drink test market area), the Kool-Aid question (because I know the secret conspiracy of Gatorade), and the Hawaiian Punch question (because it used to be sold in syrup form next to the Zarex).

I miss Surge, New York Seltzer, and Razcal.  Also, I had to look up the spelling for Zarex, and I just found out it was discontinued a few years ago.  Meh!  Fortunately, Meijer has a Polish brand of raspberry syrup.  I need the occasional lime rickey.

I'd forgotten about OK.

I got 8 out of ten on the cereals, despite never eating most of them.

I got 50% on the cereals and 40% on the drinks.

I'm trying to imagine Hawaiian Punch syrup poured over ice cream  :hmm:

It says "Question 1 of 11" and there's no apparent way to get to Question 2.
