Now you have a reason to wake up and eat breakfast. This Super Mario cereal is bound to power up your morning. Tell your regularly scheduled breakfast to kick rocks! This Super Mario cereal not only powers up your nostalgia, it also comes with some awesome surprises!
Mark your calendars for December 11th, because that’s when the Kellogg’s cereal will hit stores. Nothing too unique about the ingredients, however. It looks to just be made up of crunchy bits, mushroom marshmallows, and have a mixed berry flavor.
Remember the mornings of eating cereal and being super excited to find the prize in the box? Well, this cereal will include a little something extra to look forward to. Super Mario fans, especially those playing Super Mario Odyssey on Nintendo Switch, will be geeked out. Each cereal box will not only include collectible Super Mario Odyssey art but also function as an amiibo accessory. According to a press release from Nintendo, “Those playing the Super Mario Odyssey game can tap the cereal box on the Nintendo Switch system, like you would an amiibo, to receive gold coins or a heart in the game.”
Nintendo executives are very pleased with the upcoming release of Super Mario cereal. “This powered-up partnership with Kellogg’s is another exciting way for us to expand the Nintendo brand in unique and creative ways,” said Tom Prata, Nintendo of America’s Senior Vice President of Strategic Initiatives. “We are always looking for new opportunities to bring smiles to people of all ages, and this is a fun way to kick off the day.”
Brad Schwan, Senior Director of Morning Foods Marketing also adds, “We are thrilled to pack so much fun into one box of cereal…The package adds value and excitement for fans, with marshmallow shapes in the cereal inspired by Super Mario power-ups to tie the theme together.”
