=================== original post ====================================

Just bought a box of General Mills® Oatmeal Crisp cereal for about $4.50 and noticed a new promotion printed on the box where you receive a PIN code inside to redeem for a free Team Canada/Olympic toque at http://lifemadedelicious.ca/freetoque/

There are several styles to choose from: a pillsbury doughboy, a honey nut cheerios buzz bee, a lucky charms, and a cinnamon toast crunch toque. I think each one is reversible which shows the canadian maple leaf emblem in case you feel a bit awkward wearing a hat featuring a cereal mascot on it. Personally I think these look cool and would make a nice collectable hat for your kid, nerdy girlfriend/boyfriend, breakfast fanatic, patriotic canadian or sports lover :) Would definitely make a fun stocking stuffer. I like the cinnamon toast crunch one (I thought it was freddie and eddie from Shreddies at first but that's Post®). Though I'm not sure if that drawing shows one of them holding a hockey stick or trying to lick the other cereal :cheesygri

edit: Wow! Looks like he is trying to lick the other cereal! http://www.eatmedaily.com/2009/08/cinna ... als-video/


It's hard to tell if the design is printed or embroidered (though hopefully embroidered). Edit: Judging from the new sample closeup pic the designs seem printed on.
Also no mention if shipping is covered but if previous redemption offers are any indication, it should be free. Edit: Shipping is free!

Nice find! So only one box of cereal is required? I.e. one pin or is more required?

The Cinnamon Toast toque is cute. I had high hopes for the doughboy, but I don't really like the look of it.

No prob :) There were some issues with the redemption page this morning where entering pin and email redirected me to some error page. It has since been corrected, and the form now works. You do get a confirmation screen of the order on the last step (tho I haven't gotten a confirmation email since submitting my order.)

Nice! The flyer showed a pic of Honey Nut Cheerios, but can you please report back which other GM cereal varieties are on sale and if they have the boxes with the toque promo?

To be fare, today is the first day you can enter your pin. So it's not too late. But, yes, it's a repost.

The Cinnamon Toast is the nicest and even tho' the doughboy design could've been better I'll probably choose Poppin Fresh
