Funko Cereal Coming In June

Funko Founder Michael Becker unveiled a new product line for Funko, which is cereal with mini-Pop figures included in the box. The line, which will be marketed through collectible store outlets as opposed to grocery stores, goes on sale in June 2018. As an added feature, the Elvira cereal, named after Elvira Mistress of the Dark, will turn black, and the Freddy Krueger cereal will turn red, when milk is added.

“One of the fun things is we are about to release our own line of cereal, with a mini-Pop inside,” Becker explained. “We got all the cool licenses like He-Man, Wonder Woman, Elvira Mistress of the Dark, Freddy Krueger and our own Freddy Funko. We start shipping to stores in June and we have the distribution set up and the product is pre-sold. It’s just one more of those feel-good Funko items.” He continued, “I used to watch cartoons on Saturday mornings while I was eating cereal. There are prizes in the cereal and it will sell for $7.99 a box. When you add milk to the Freddy Krueger cereal, it looks blood red. With the Beetlejuice cereal, when you add milk it looks like slime.”

The Justice League Is Coming To Breakfast

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The Justice League has come to the front, back and inside of several of General Mills cereals.

It’s the latest partnership with Warner Bros. Consumer Products, on behalf of DC Entertainment, available on boxes of Honey Nut Cheerios, Multi Grain Cheerios, Trix, Lucky Charms, Cocoa Puffs and Cinnamon Toast Crunch.

“In brainstorming with Warner Bros. Consumer Products and DC, we were energized by the similarities and popularity of the Justice League characters and of our own cereal characters,” says Lisa Kessel, a marketing communications manager at General Mills. “DC shared that many of their artists were also huge cereal fans and we were excited to bring that love of cereal and the love of comics together in one holistic event.”

Six cereal boxes are getting a complete DC Super Hero makeover. The front of five boxes feature transformations of our General Mills’ characters, and one box features Wonder Woman.

BuzzBee takes on the look of Batman, the Trix Rabbit of Superman, Lucky of Green Lantern, Sonny of The Flash, and the Crazy Squares team of Aquaman, Cyborg and Green Lantern.

These specially-marked boxes also include one of four exclusive DC comic books – titled “Power Play,” “Dark Reflections,” “Truth Hurts,” and “Alien Justice.”

And the action doesn’t stop there. The back of the boxes, when lined up, make a powerful panoramic, designed by well-known comic book artist Ivan Reis. After 26 years in the industry, Reis has created classic-modern artwork for more than 200 comic books. He told us he enjoyed the challenge of creating the back-of-the-box composite art.

“The art is about three feet wide when put together. It’s huge, and it doesn’t even fit my drawing board,” he says. “While working on them, I would split it and assemble it back together all the time to see how the entire image looked.”

This week, General Mills very quietly teased via Twitter the news that Girl Scouts Cookie cereals will be available in stores as of January 2017, but didn’t give much more information than that.

From the picture alone, however, it looks like Thin Mints and Caramel Crunch (Samoas) made the cut.

Shocking News: Froot Loops Are All the Same Flavor

The delicious, multicolored O’s that make up Froot Loops don’t actually represent different fruit flavors. Reddit’s Today I Learned series recently unearthed a 1999 article from the Straight Dope, which confirms that “according to Kellogg’s, all of those delectable loops are flavored the same.”

Food Beast performed scientific blind testing and found that the rumors are indeed true: Froot Loops all taste the same. In their words: “Each loop does in fact taste like mildly sweetened cardboard, with negligible or no differences between them.”

Don’t feel bad as Trix and Fruity Pebbles yielded similar results.
