Aren’t your eyes weeping and your lips puckering after reading that headline? A milky bowl of sour-flavored cereal will soon be a real thing in your universe. Post is coming out with Sour Patch Kids Cereal. I hope this cereal’s appearance gets side-eyes and treefulls of shade from Toucan Sam and the rest of the cereal characters when this monstrosity goes up on shelves beside them.
The cereal will only be available at Wal*Mart until the new year, when it will hit other retailers. THis mess will reportedly change from sour to sweet when you eat it. They can make magic cereal but they can’t cure major disease. Why?
According to a press release from Post, the cereal will feature a “sour coating” and a “sweet finish.”
As a child and obviously a budding masochist, I would happily consume Sour Patch Kids by the bagful because eating enough of them made my eyes tear up and my face implode and look like an injured aquatic creature. I try to avoid those states as an adult, but it was always fun to torture oneself as a child. Did anyone else eat Pop Rocks and drink Coke at the same time? In hopes of exploding? I might have been an odd child.
