Minecraft Creeper Crunch Cereal

You know you’ve hit the big time when you have your own breakfast cereal.  And Minecraft has definitely hit the big time ten times over.  It’s one of the most popular games ever made.  I’ve never played it myself, but that’s only because I’m purposely staying away from it as I’m afraid I would get addicted to it.  I’m bad enough as it is with Animal Crossing!  I would especially like to try Minecraft now that there is a Pac-Man update to it!  Anyway, so when I saw the very last box of a Minecraft cereal at Wal-Mart, I knew I had to get it and review it!  I wonder if this stuff is hard to find now, like the Mario cereal used to be?

Anyway, here’s a bigger picture of the front of the box, with the Creeper’s face featured prominently on it.  The cereal has square shaped cinnamon pieces along with green square marshmallows.

The side of the box has a lot of words, but the basic gist is they’re telling you to recycle the box.  The other side has nutrition facts so I didn’t take a picture of that side.  If you’re buying Minecraft cereal, you’re probably not too interested in its nutrition value anyway.

The back of the box has instructions on how to download your free character customization item.  Hey kids, did you know that at one time, cereal boxes had ACTUAL physical prizes in them?  I miss those days.  I love the ‘tips’ at the bottom of the box.  One says, “Mobs are friendlier after some tasty treats.  Same in real life.  Share Creeper Crunch cereal with anyone who’s a little sad.”  Or “Why not experiment with your milk?  Soy?  Almond?  What about Mooshroom?”

And here’s what the actual cereal looks like in a bowl.  I don’t know if the marshmallows are supposed to be different shades of green or not.  The cinnamon squares don’t have as big of a cinnamon flavor like some other ones do, so some may say it’s a bit bland.  But I actually like the cinnamon bits because they’re not too sweet.  I’d actually like the cereal if it didn’t have those darn marshmallows in it. I’ve never liked marshmallows.  That’s what made me so mad as a kid when Pac-Man cereal came out because it had marshmallows in it, too!

Anyway, so that’s the Minecraft cereal.  Let me know what you think in the comments section.  Have you seen it in your local stores?  What kind of video game cereal would you like to see?  I’d like to see a Kirby or Mega Man cereal!  –Cary

  1. Good lord, that looks gross.

  2. I know if I put that on a shelf in my room for display purposes, it would make me jump in fright every so often. I may pick one up if I see one, just for fun though.
