can't beat 'em, eat 'em." Yes, Nintendo did have a cereal promoting two of
their best-selling games: Super Mario Bros. and The Legend of Zelda. Each
box was divided in half: one side had the fruity flavored Marios,
Mushrooms, and Goombas. The other side had berry-flavored Links, Hearts,
and Shields. Now, I know they were called "fruity" and "berry", but I
swear I couldn't tell the difference in the flavors. I usually just mixed
them all together in a bowl.
thing about the cereal is that it always came with video game stickers.
Check out the sticker Soda Popinski and his mighty ass-shaped chin. Other offers
included chances to win Nintendo systems, and even a Super Mario cereal
All in all,
it was a decent cereal for those who couldn't get enough of their Nintendo
fix, but it didn't have any Marshmallows! If you're gonna sell cereal to
kids ya gotta have the marshmallows! I'm sorry, it just couldn't compare
with my favorite video game cereal ever:
cereal. It had one of the best commercials ever, plus it had a ridiculous
amount of ghost marshmallows in it. It was literally like eating candy for
breakfast. The only cereal with a higher marshmallow-to-cereal ratio was
Dino Pebbles. Sadly, it seems that the days of high marshmallow ratio
are long gone. Enjoy the Grape Nuts, kids.
