Ice Cream Cones Cereal
Ice cream cones for breakfast? In 1986, yes. Introduced AND discontinued that year, Ice Cream Cones cereal was briefly reintroduced in 2003 in honor of the 100th anniversary of the ice cream cone, but it was a limited release. Now, if we want ice cream cones for breakfast, we’ll have to stick to the real thing (not recommended).

The Astra-Gnome, 1956 – A ‘Time and Space Car’
A concept car created by industrial designer Richard Arbib for American Motors. Using a 1955 Nash Metropolitan chassis, it features space travel themes like the Hamilton ‘celestial time-zone clock permitting actual flight-type navigation’, and an acrylic glass bubble canopy which also serves as a sound chamber for the car’s high fidelity radio and record player.
The Astra-Gnome was featured on the 3 September 1956 cover of Newsweek magazine and was a popular highlight in its debut at the 1956 New York International Auto Show.
Lost and then relocated in New York in 1980, the Astra-Gnome was restored and can now be seen at the Metropolitan Pit Stop Museum in Los Angeles, CA.
