Here’s some cereal information for you:
Kellogg USA brings Poké-mania to the breakfast
table in May with the introduction of a limited-edition cereal and
Pop-Tarts toaster pastries based on Nintendo’s popular Pokémon
Kellogg’s Pokémon Toasted Oat Cereal With
Marshmallow Bits is the first and only Pokémon cereal. The enticing, fun,
Pokémon-decorated box contains oat-based rings with four Pokémon
character-shaped marshmallows — blue Poliwhirl, yellow Pikachu, pink
Ditto, and green Oddish — and the cereal is fortified with 12 vitamins
and minerals. On the back of the specially marked boxes is a game that

hidden in the colorful picture. The average price for the cereal will be
$2.49 for a 13.2-ounce package.
