A list of eleven of the worst pop culture cereal tie-ins ever.A list of eleven of the worst pop culture cereal tie-ins ever.

I have vivid memories eating the Nintendo cereal whilst watching the Super Mario Brothers Super Show (as I'm sure you do as well). I shutter to think at what the actual  Nutritional Facts would have read like.

Yes, Pickle Flakes are part of this breakfast although you might want to check the nutritional facts before pouring yourself a bowl. Yum.

A tutorial on how to render your very own cereal box cover in Photoshop.A tutorial on how to render your very own cereal box cover in Photoshop.

I could totally go for some Captain Crunch (with Crunchberries) right now so going through the motions of this tutorial probably wouldn't help. Although, this is yet another quality tutorial as always from the fine folks at PSDTUTS.

Lazy cereal box marketing.

I did a double take while munching on my favorite breakfast cereal this evening (yes, this evening). See photo below and look at the key marketing feature.

What ever happened to the free toy inside? Better yet, even a coupon to get some kind of free toy by mailing a specially marked package to some place that is probably run by elves. This is just lazy. Cereal boxes used to hand out all kinds of free stuff.

Now with better taste?   I am to believe that the old taste was far worse? Stop lying to me, Post Cereal. This box of sugar still tastes exactly the same. Thanks to you I now have a sugar headache when I should be sleeping. Instead, I'm writing a blog post about crappy cereal box marketing because I'm hyper from said sugar. And wipe that goofy smile of your face Flintstone, you corporate whore.
