How awesome were these?

I saw Frosted Flakes on sale at CVS the other day, and on a whim I decided to buy a box.  It's probably the only time I have ever bought a box of Frosted Flakes.  Last night I ate a handful of them, and instantly I was reminded of being on vacation with my family as a child.  Because that's when we used to get these:
How great were those variety packs of tiny boxes?  It was the only time when I was a kid that I ever got to eat "sugar" cereals.  And I think since we we're on vacation we rarely had bowls and spoons, so I just ate them dry out of the box.  It was also comical how little cereal was in each of those mini boxes, like 3 or 4 mouthfuls.  Looking back it probably would have made a lot more sense just to buy one regular size box of cereal.  But I'm guessing my sisters and I always fought over which kind to get, so my parents just gave up and let us get these.  I mean it was vacation anyway.

Do the tiny box variety packs still exist?  All I ever notice these days are those single servings in a plastic bowl with the seal that peals off the top.  Maybe more functional, but definitely not as cool.
