The Twelve Greatest Entertainment-Themed Cereals
Remember back in the day when just about everything garnered a new type of cereal? Well, not ‘NEW’ per se, but more or less a re-hashing of a failed or discontinued cereal really similar to the one being marketed. I mean let’s face it, how many honest to goodness strikingly fantastic cereal flavors were there, really? Let’s see: we’ve got sweetened corn puff style, chocolate, strawberry, and… chocolatey strawberry-y? Yeah, nothing really on-the-edge or hyper-exciting there. Well, regardless, back in the eighties and early nineties, the breakfast marketplace was inundated with new ‘Entertainment-Themed’ cereals, and we here at Gunaxin love our cereals, enough so that we’ve done this many other cereal things and are hereby cornering the subject forever! The Story Behind Some Favorite Cereals, Top Cereal Mascots, and A Tribute to Discontinued Cereals. But look, there’s even more fun cereal facts to fawn over! Grab a bowl of Urkel-O’s and enjoy!

The meeting was called to order. Not ten minutes later, Ted waltzed out of the boardroom with a huge grin splayed across his face. “I can’t believe they went with Cereal SYSTEM! Man, what a bunch of morons!”
I’m sorry, but any other cereal you can come up with can’t even come close to the all out awesomeness of this one. Taste aside, this ad is something to behold. I do remember eating it, though, and, well… not so good.
