Kellogg’s Minecraft Creeper Crunch is coming to stores and mornings just got more creative.
Stepping off the screen and into the real world, the new Kellogg’s Minecraft Creeper Crunch is the gaming inspired cereal that over 126 million players will want to try. While these creepers might not explode in your mouth, they are bringing a new sense of adventure to the cereal aisle.
Recently announced by Kellogg’s, Minecraft Creeper Crunch is a “cinnamon flavored cereal” that features “green square-shaped Creeper bit marshmallows.” Based on the picture, it appears that the marshmallows are various colors of green, just like the various green Creepers in Minecraft.
Looking at the cereal on the box, it is quite interesting that the shapes are block like. Anyone who has played Minecraft knows that this gaming world is all about the blocks. Usually, cereal shapes are not quite as square-like. This choice adds to the authenticity of the gaming connection.
For cereal fans, the flavor is the most important. Combining cinnamon and marshmallow flavors should make for a tasty treat. Hopefully, the warm spice from the cinnamon perfectly balances the sweetness from the marshmallows.
Of course, any connection to a game needs to have a little play element to the experience. Each box will have a code that unlocks special game clothing. There are one in ten game clothing items available via the codes.
While gaming clothes are available for purchase via the game, these codes make it free for the gamers. Now, there are even more ways to customize that Minecraft gaming experience.
This new cereal continues the gaming trend into the food world. Many brands, like Mountain Dew, Doritos and others have partnered with the eSports community to enhance the connection between the gaming world and food.
Given the increase in these partnerships, this new Kellogg’s cereal could be just the start of the gaming world in the cereal aisle. Could Fortnite cereal be next?
The Kellogg’s Minecraft Creeper Crunch Cereal will be available in stores starting in August. An 8 oz box will retail for $3.99 and a 12.7 oz box will retail for $5.69.
