Apparently this is a throw-back box, so you might still be able to get one. The colors are great and gentlepurespace’s choice of backdrop is perfect. Just another illustration of how product packaging today sucks. Via FFFFOUND.

I see that the “vintage” style is minimalist, and the current style is bright and poppy. (Like GNOME and KDE.) The way I see it, it’s eye-catching, colorful but clean, informative (photo of the product is a good thing). The box pictured above is interesting in its layout, but it does not make me hungry for Kix, or even tell me what the heck Kix is. I don’t watch TV or look at paper ads. But I like to know what I’m buying.
I’m no graphics/design major, but this still interests me greatly–enlighten me, why is the current design of the Kix box shitty?
I do agree the photo itself is pretty. That is a nice backdrop for it. :)
