Will it still “snap crackle pop?”

For the opening reception, we presented a the once-in-a-lifetime virtual Breakfast “Happening.”  A “vintage” individual serving size box of Kellogg’s Rice Krispies, dated 1963, with paper lining so that it can be used as a cereal bowl, was OPENED!  And milk was poured onto the cereal (in a different cereal bowl – the empty box/bowl is now part of IMoDD collection).  What were the results?  You can find out by watching the video.
