Pokémon Cereal: Catch 'Em And Eat 'Em Too

By Kevin on Apr 16 2012 12:38 AM
You are witnessing one of the greatest moments in the history of cereal. Introduced in 2000, Kellogg's launched the first ever Pokémon cereal, Kellogg's Pokémon Toasted Oat Cereal With Marshmallow Bits, as part of the new Pokémon craze of the late 1990's. The cereal contains oat-based rings, featuring four different Pokémon character-shaped marshmallows: blue Poliwhirl, yellow Pikachu, pink Ditto, and green Oddish. The cereal is fortified with 12 essential vitamins and minerals. Pokémon Toasted Oat Cereal With Marshmallow Bits retailed at an average price of $2.49 for a 13.2-ounce package.

"Kellogg's Pokémon cereal is the latest example of our commitment to bring fun back to the cereal aisle and offers kids a unique way to catch Pokémon fever," said Paul Norman, vice president of marketing for ready-to-eat cereal, Kellogg USA.

"Through this integrated marketing campaign, Kellogg's creates the ultimate 'Pokémon experience,' and allows kids to participate in the Pokémon phenomenon in a new way," said Kevin Smith, vice president, consumer promotions, Kellogg USA.

You must admit, whether you're a Pokémon fan or not, this is pretty cool. I love cereal and I'd buy this in a split-second if it ever made its way back into the grocery stores. On the official website, you can vote for the cereal, as well as make a comment. If there are enough votes, Kellogg's may just bring this back. What are you waiting for? Go vote and leave a comment.

That sounds...like an interesting purchase. I had to do it.
Hahahh buying love omg im laughing so hard!! But if i remember correctly it wasnt half bad!
I would eat this... or would I? Maybe seeing the cute Pokemon shapes would make me weary of gobbling them up! I think maybe I would just eat the Oddish marshmallows since then I could say I was eating my vegetables...? You get what I did there? Oddish is named after a radish and that is a root veritable.
