Cheerios box misprint?

edited April 2010 in Help / Advice Forum
Hey all. I recently came to have a box of honey nut cheerios in my possession.

As I was eating them as finger food waiting for a friend to show up, I entertained myself with the various puzzles in the back of the box. Or I would have, if the puzzles weren't so confounding

I managed to solve 2/3 of the puzzles ("H-O-N-E-Y" is "What the buzz is about", and the 4 Honey Heist Suspects are safely in custody) however the final one has me stumped.

I have to find 12 Cheerio's O's hidden on the back of the box, and I've only found 11.

here is the back of the box, with found O's highlighted
Spoiler:


And so that you guys can help me out, I've taken zoomed in pictures of the 4 quadrants
Spoiler:

of note is the middle right side of the box. I'm assuming the example "O" doesn't count towards the number, since they are asking for the hidden ones and that one is plain sight.

SoaL on

    soal this is the best post you have ever made

    except maybe in the zoomed in version you should highlight the "o's" too

    I wasn't sure if I should. This way you can cross reference between the overview and the zoomed in shots to see how they look. It should help with finding new ones if you have a reference I think.

    that can't be!

    all the other ones are photorealistic and that one is cartooney and I thought it was just a life preserver

    He makes a good point. All the cheerios just look like copy-pasted and resized pictures of one cheerio.

    But wait... what if the example cheerio is one of the 12?

    Yeah, I was about to say that the example cheerio is probably the 12.

    'Cheerios' on the car.

    edit - as in they tittled the i with a cheerio.

  • SoaLSoaL fantastic Registered User regular

    I just figured that's how they have the cheerio's logo

    It's the same on the tiny box of cheerios in the top left

    This is seriously going to bother me until we decide on/find the 12th.


    I don't think I'll be able to fall asleep tonight because of it.

    Here is the list of the 11 I found, for reference in case someone found one (aside from the example cheerio) that doesn't match one of these, and because I can't see the highlighting very well. Working from bottom to top:

    1. The one on army guy's fist
    2. The one balanced on the finger just above it
    3. The partial on the gold thing above the paper (this picture is kind of fuzzy)
    4. The one on the trunk of the car
    5. The one on the bee cop's hat
    6. The one giving the kid a black eye under the mascot's antenna
    7. The one in the kid's hand between the antennae
    8. The one on the purple shirt
    9. The one in the trumpet
    10. The one sitting on top of the cheerios box
    11. The one under the I in "pourquoi"

    No wonder I want to wrap you up and take you home
    I'm looking forward to the chance to meet again, but then again it all depends
    Suddenly I'm not so sure that intentions can be pure
    If I could just throw all my doubts into the wind I think that they'd come back again

    I would vote for it being the dot on the 'i' in cheerios

    I just sent this off:
    Hello. My friends and I have been stumped by one of your popular back-of-the-cereal-box puzzles and I was wondering if someone could help us out.

    On current boxes of Honey Nut Cheerios®, specifically the ones that state "WHAT'S THE BUZZ ABOUT?", we are tasked with finding 12 hidden Honey Nut Cheerios® in the scene depicted. However, after careful study, we have only been able to discover 11 of them. You can see the ones we have found so far, highlighted in red in this image:

    http://img176.imageshack.us/img176/7836/cheeriosmystery.jpg

    There are other Cheerios® displayed on the back of the box but they are not especially hidden, so we are not sure if they count towards the total. Does the example Cheerio® count? What about the one used as the dot of the "i" in the Honey Nut Cheerios® logo (featured on the hood of the red car driven by Buzz®)? Or are we still missing one final deviously hidden Cheerio®?

    We anxiously await your reply. Thank you for your attention in this matter.

    I could be wrong, but I think that's the example cheerio.

    Because some people like to lie to themselves and say that inflatable tubes count as Cheerios when they obviously don't...
