Open Post: Hosted By Baby Shark Cereal

July 30, 2019 / Posted by:

In case your mornings weren’t going good enough, Kellogg’s has decided to bless you by taking a beautiful and meaningful song (Baby Shark Doo Doo Doo!) and turning it into a healthy and nutritious breakfast (sugar flakes with marshmallows!). So now your kids can be hopped up on marshmallows first thing in the morning while yell/singing Baby Shark Doo Doo Doo! Everybody wins! And by “everybody,” I mean Satan.

According to Delish:

I know the mere reference of “Baby Shark” may cause Stuck Song Syndrome (which is a real thing! Look it up!), so apologies in advance, but Kellogg’s launched a cereal inspired by the hit track and we need to talk about it.

Now that you’ve likely gotten through at least the first verse—”Baby shark, doo doo doo doo doo doo”—let’s discuss. Online snack scout @CandyHunting unveiled the news on Instagram today, announcing it as a Walmart and Sam’s Club exclusive. “The cereal will hit [Sam’s] Club on August 17 and Walmart in mid-September,” the caption read. So what does it actually taste like? Well, according to reports, the loops are berry-flavored and there are actual marshmallows mixed in.

I mean marshmallows are fun but call me when they put some actual sharks in there. Also, as someone who wasn’t allowed sugar cereals growing up, when I could get my sticky paws on some sugar cerea,l I was like a crack head to a crack pipe. So I am wary of a sugar cereal based off a catchy kid song. I like my cereal to be led by captains and tigers and maybe a toucan, but not a baby shark!

I might be alone in my skeptisism cause it looks people are excited about this cereal disaster.

The cereal’s been touted as “berry fintastic,” and if the IG comment section is any indication of whether it actually is, look out. Folks are excited. “My nephew is gonna go ape shit for these,” one user wrote. “Oh my lord! I need this now!!” another exclaimed.

“We know Baby Shark is a catchy tune that has captured the hearts of many families,” marketing director Erin Storm said in a press release: “New Kellogg’s Baby Shark cereal was created to expand on the joy families feel in a tasty way.”

I’m actually concerned for the person who wrote, “Oh my Lord! I need this now!!” Let me be very clear here, you most certainly do not. And if you think you do need it now: go get a bowl, shove a bunch of marshmallows in it, pour some sugar over it and start playing Baby Shark on repeat. Done. Godspeed, my friend, godspeed.

Here’s a look at the Baby Shark cereal via candyhuntings on Instagram and my parenting nightmares.
