Jolly Rancher Cereal Will Please Your Sweet Tooth At Breakfast

Remember when, as a kid, you wished you could have candy and chocolate for breakfast? I’m sure do. If you ever made this wish, consider it granted because General Mills has released the Jolly Rancher cereal. Our inner child is leaping with joy with this development! We’ll just need to wait for a little while, because the candy-inspired cereals will reportedly be hitting the shelves next year.

Everyone loves Jolly Ranchers. Who could possibly resist these flavor-filled, sugar nuggets? Kids and kids-at-heart can’t refuse them, and keep a stash hidden away someplace for those crucial, low-sugar moments. However, no matter how busy our lives get, just having candy won’t be enough to help us kickstart our day. That’s why its cerealized form will definitely be a welcome addition to our cupboards when it finally hits the shelves.

The pieces in the Jolly Rancher Cereal look like mini candies

One of the reasons why we love cereal so much is because of the fun shapes they come in. The other reasons are their delicious sugary flavors, and of course, the toys hidden in the box. Now, according to the box, you’ll be getting green apple, cherry, watermelon, grape and blue raspberry flavors in your morning bowl. These flavors are actually based from the original Jolly Rancher sweets that we’ve got stashed away in our desk drawers and bags. Natural and artificial flavors are combined to give this particularly jolly cereals its delicious taste.

Instagrammer @i_need_a_snack was among the lucky few to get a hold of this amazing breakfast treat and give it a try. The account is dedicated to reviewing our soon-to-be-favorite snacks. For the cereal, the reviewer wrote,

“Now, right off the bat after opening the cereal, you’re greeted with a sweet and flavorful smell just like an assortment bag of Jolly Ranchers! Now when it comes to taste, I feel like these guys are just rebranded Trix with a slighttt flavor difference. And I love Trix, so I’m in no way saying this cereal is bad. It’s actually really good.”


The candy-inspired cereal contains hints of candy flavor and fruity notes

@i_need_a_snack’s verdict does not, in any way, discourage us from wanting to enjoy bowlfuls of this delicious breakfast treat. In fact, the thought of dousing Jolly Ranchers with milk disturbs to an insane degree. So we’re glad that General Mills has decided to keep the sugary sweetness to a minimum. We love a good fruit-flavored cereal any day, any way!

The cereal has been spotted at Walmart for $4 a box, although it’s not officially listed on the website yet. This candy-inspired cereal will be a Walmart Exclusive for the next couple months before becoming widely available in other stores in March 2020.
