Kellogg’s Limited Edition Candy Corn Flavored Corn Pops Cereal: Bring It Back!

Because you've always wanted to eat Candy Corn for breakfast...

Before you get all excited and rush to the grocery store to buy a box (or five), I'm sorry to say that Kellogg's Candy Corn flavored Corn Pops cereal was a limited edition release from back in 2001. Why they don't release these every Halloween is beyond me, because really... who wouldn't want to eat candy corn for breakfast? Admittedly, the cereal itself isn't particularly amazing looking, I would've much rather seen them make the Pops look like little candy corn shapes, but at least they got the flavor part right instead of just making it a visual novelty. If you're really desperate to try the stuff, you can find an old box of them on eBay every now 'n then, but I wouldn't recommend eating cereal that old no matter how tempting it may be. If you did, chances are you'd end up looking like the mad scientist on the box. But hey, there's nothing stopping you from enjoying a bowl of real candy corn. I bet it wouldn't even taste half bad with milk.

Anyway, for whatever reason, Kellogg's was alllll over Halloween that year. Not only did they have the Candy Corn flavored Corn Pops cereal, but they also had "Kreepy" Rice Krispies and "Jack O Lantern" Apple Jacks. I don't know what it was about 2001 that inspired such a fever amidst the ranks of Kellogg's employees for all things Halloween, but damnit, they need to bring it all back. I'm just putting this out there, because Candy Corn Pops cereal should not be forgotten and I'm sure reps from Kellogg's spend 90% of their time reading this site to determine exactly what moves they should make next. Well, now you know Kellogg's... now you know! October hasn't arrived yet and there's still time to put those Candy Corn flavored Pops back on the market! So get to work on it pronto!

Do you think any other Halloween candies could make for some good cereals? How about the Halloween Peeps? We're already used to having marshmallows in our cereal as it is... with Peeps we could just eliminate the cereal part. Let's hear your ideas.

Also, I've never been to Kellogg's Corn Pops web site until today, but after surfing through it, I'm convinced that whoever designed it must've gotten into a bad old batch of Candy Corn flavored Corn Pops. Seriously, spending a few minutes on that site is like a horrifying bad acid trip. Just click through the videos and you'll see what I mean. Let me know if you manage to last more than five minutes on that site. I apologize in advance for any permanent damage it does to your psyche, but Halloween is all about watching scary stuff and it doesn't get much scarier than this.

They should just put a razorblade a a prize in apple jacks to make them halloween themed.

Or a registered sex offender in a box of Fruity Pepples to bring on that halloween spirit. If they can't legally give out sweets anymore, just put em in them.

When I first saw this article, i'll admit that yes...I did jump to conclusions and think that candy corn pops was a current cereal being made. I should have known, nothing good has every come out in the last 6 years...why would they start now.

Interesting CornPops website title: Tear Drops Into Dream World

First off, what the fu&$ does the site have to do with corn pops or cereal or even breakfast--it's way way out there into some realm of fantasyland.

Secondly, the title sounds like an old Nintendo game title..did they rip it off from one..maybe a superMario game?


Turrel (Guest) on 09/23/2008 4:02 pm

I think a better question is this: who the hell would want to eat candy corn flavored anything?

Hey, we're lucky Kellogg's decided to release this candy-corned abortion of a cereal instead of the alternative: CORN TORTILLA POPS!

Good freaking god... Their website is so weird. 10 minutes in I landed at some sort of Japanese tv game show and then I had to quit the web page.

I'm addicted to the Peanut Butter Whoppers. I imagine eating them with milk would be like Captain Crunch's Peanut Butter Cruncn.

Fun fact: The sound the wizard on the Corn Pops site makes while that cloud appears is the same that's being played while Mega Man absorbs the bosses' powers after defeating them.

That website is just plain wrong. It's like the friggin Aquabats having an orgy with Tim and Eric except it's not funny and the music sucks out of control.

The Corn Pops site is beyond bizarre.

I too would not recommend eating Pops from 2K1, although it may have some hallucinogenic properties :)

I was pleasantly surprised by just how frickin' nuts the Pop's page was. It's almost like a cross between Blues clues and a Stanley kubrick flick'

For a laugh, become BFF's with the PopsJacker :)

Die candy corn! *stabs it*

I'm not into cold breakfast cereal. The only sweet thing I can think of that I want to eat right now is brownies. Nice dense fudgy ones...

................ How is that website supposed to promote buying corn pops? I'm pretty sure most parents would see that and think "Oh shit! Billy is on that website again! We better start smothing him, so he doesn't ever do the drugs those people were on." We'll have a nation of freakin Bob's on our hands. By Bob's I mean introverted recluses, who never leave the house and are scared of the entire world. It's just easier to say Bob.

I always thought that gummy worms in cereal or in cereal form would be interesting, call it - Bowl Full O' Worms. Or how about those big bags of bargain benevolence, a mixed bag of sorts sounds like it would make a very surprising cereal, which could go one way or the other, depending on what you put in your mouth and when - deliciously gross. Somehow incorporating gum into cereal has always kept me wondering how to make it so without too many choking deaths, if you know what I mean.

Limited edition on food is bogus

I hate it when food is limited edition, because Corn Pops in Australia isn't on shelves anymore. Now all we have is Cheerios from America, no Captain Crunch or Count Chocula or anything interesting except for Froot Loops, which my health nut Dad never buys.

You blew up our fun cereals, CSIRO, you finally did it, damn you all, damn you all to hell!


ColdFusion (Guest) on 09/25/2008 6:30 pm

I dunno man, I don't like Corn Pops and I sure don't like candy corn... but the thing I don't like most of all is when a product is canceled!
I mean, christ, how well does it have to sell to earn a spot on the shelves? Do they not realize that new products are at a disadvantage? T_T

I think it has to do with new Australian health regulations forced on food, you can't advertise junk food during children's programming here any more because of rising childhood obesity.

They must make it again. I must have it.

I don't remember the Halloween Rice Krispies or Corn Pops, but I do remember the Apple Jacks, mainly because the pumpkins tasted awful. That box must have sat in the cupboard for months, since nobody wanted to eat the cereal.

This cereal was in Australia in the early 90s. Eating them is a very vivid memory
