Cereal box, Creamoata; Banks Box Company Limited; 1929; GO.FLEM49
Cereal box, CreamoataAbout this object
The is an example of the packaging of Creamoata from the 1920s. Creamoata came in different degrees of coarseness and this was reflected in the colour of the packaging. A yellow box signified a finer grain of porridge. Creamoata was an oat cereal manufactured by Fleming & Co, Gore N.Z.
Sergeant Dan the Creamoata man has been cut out of the box. This is because you could save up Sergeant Dan cut outs and exchange them for a silver plated spoon. We have one of these Sergeant Dan spoons in the Collection.
