At some point you may have to get a new Cheerios box in case they notice they have been eating out of the old box for 6 months.
"Wow, these Cheerios really last!"
Actually, no. They don't usually notice the dates on things. Seriously, my parents could be eating six month old Cheerios for all they know, but fortunately I pay attention to dates and such. Let me put it this way: My dad once took some Alka Seltzer that had expired in March of 2007. The date he took them? December of 2009.
Anywho, the box itself is in fairly good shape, and since I'm the one that pours the cereal for my mom (she can't walk), no one notices.
It would be funny if your mom reminisces one day about how Cheerios used to taste better back in her youth and that the company must have changed its recipe.
