We are so fortunate here in New Jersey to have such a wide variety of great eateries to choose from. Some great new ones are popping up every year and some good old standards.

Some iconic places only live in our fond memories but are no longer there. Places are parents took us to as kids. Restaurants we may have taken a first date to. Places we used to hit after a night at the club.

The list in Jersey is long and storied. We asked our listeners last week about the great restaurants, diners, ice cream, shops and taverns that aren’t there anymore.

Movies and TV shows have always found ways to partner with cereal companies as part of their promotion strategy. While some may have come up with a giveaway in boxes, others went big by having their own cereal connected to the movie or TV show title. Here are vintage cereals that were used to promote some of pop culture's biggest moments (and some you probably forgot about).
