Donald Fact's Fact Blast
Cereal Box

In 1974 the makers of Crunchy Flakes breakfast cereal ran a promotion featuring none other than Donald Fact, the man who compiled the popular It's a Fact! column in IPC Magazines' Chuckles comic.

Promotional packs contained one of the fact master's specially written fact cards. There were twenty to collect in all, covering subjects as diverse as The Loch Ness Monster, Queen Elizabeth 1 and Trifle. These cards are now extremely rare and highly collectable, but we are fortunate enough to be able to reproduce a few of them here.
