We love the bright colors and heady aroma of Fruity Pebbles. In this classic episode of Unwrapped, they take us inside Post’s factory that churns out more than 55 million boxes of the cereal a year. The process includes dying long-grain rice, smushing the grains into flat pieces, then coating them with sugar and flavoring.
Follow your nose to Des Moines, Iowa’s Fong’s Pizza for a truly unusual breakfast food, a pizza that’s been covered with Froot Loops. Instead of milk, the colorful cereal Os sits in a bath of sour cream, cream cheese, mozzarella cheese, with a drizzle of Greek yogurt and condensed milk. Lactaid sold separately.
Etsy store Candlelit Desserts makes candles and soaps that look like a variety of food. Its bestseller is this candle that not only looks but also smells like Froot Loops. The 14oz candle comes in a 6″ bowl and has a spoon embedded in it. Not part of a nutritious breakfast.
Love the delicious cinnamon-sugar flavor of Cinnamon Toast Crunch? B&G Foods has announced it’s releasing a seasoning blend that combines those flavors with vanilla and graham, making it a perfect topping for ice cream, cakes, cookies, and more. Cinnadust is a Sam’s Club exclusive and expected in stores around 9.1.2020.
Only like the marshmallows from Lucky Charms? Well you could buy a bag without the oat bits, or you could do what these guys from Google did, and build a machine that separates them for you. The Teachable Sorter can actually be used to recognize and sort other objects, and you can get the code, 3D files, and build details here.
Kellogg’s reimagines sugary breakfast treats with their first ever cereal mashup, combining an even mix of Frosted Flakes and Froot Loops in the same box. Sure, you could do the same yourself right now, but that would be way too much work. It’s too bad they don’t make Cap’N Crunch and Fruity Pebbles.
Kellogg’s Rice Krispies cereal is best known for the “snap, crackle, pop” sounds it makes when swimming in milk. If you love that sound, but like things one louder, then check out this invention by Dominic Wilcox, which amplifies the sound for everyone to enjoy at the breakfast table.
This cup is perfect for enjoying muesli on the go. It keeps milk or yogurt separate from cereal until you’re ready to mix them together. Simply store dry ingredients in the top section, then unscrew and pour them in the bottom when you’r ready to eat. The reusable container is made from eco-friendly bamboo fiber and corn starch.
We love a bowl of sweet and crunchy breakfast cereal as much as the next guy, but as Ordinary Things points out, this high-carb, low-nutritional value day-starter isn’t exactly good for you, despite what the marketing might tell us. The Stuff You Should Know episode on the Kellogg brothers is worth a listen too.
Funko is releasing a line of breakfast cereals called FunkO’s. Each cereal will come with sweet box art and a Pop! figure of the themed character. The first batch of FunkO’s will be available 7/2018 in a variety of stores, including GameStop, Hot Topic and FYE.
After doing her best to make her own Skittles, Bon Appétit’s Claire Saffitz once again is determined to make a gourmet version of a popular food – and nobody better mess with her Lucky Charms! Of course our method for getting those marshmallows is a bit simpler.
Burger King is teaming up with Kellogg’s to release a special edition milkshake that tastes like a bowl of delicious, sugary breakfast cereal. Sure, it doesn’t contain any actual fruit, but Toucan Sam would still approve. Follow your nose to your nearest BK Lounge on 4/17/17.
