A bowl of cereal with milk will always be a breakfast staple. That’s why it’s always exciting news whenever cereal brands come up with new flavors and variants. But it gets even more exciting when cereal brands and snack brands come together to make our dream breakfast treats come true. Case in point, Kellogg’s is partnering with Little Debbie to bring us Oatmeal Creme Pies Cereal. Now it’s totally acceptable to have snack cakes early in the morning!
The word about this interesting collab first got out when Instagram user @cerealsnob shared a photo of the alleged packaging of the upcoming cereal. Apparently, it was a screenshot from a video on YouTube of someone reviewing a leaked sample of the cereal. The packaging seemed legit, although it was hard to confirm just from the video alone. Nevertheless, the post piqued the interest of the fans of the classic Little Debbie treat and garnered some positive responses.

RUMOR: I got linked to a video on youtube of someone reviewing 2 new unheard of cereals earlier today. Little Debbie's Oatmeal Creme Pies and Cosmic Brownies. ? Both of these cereal are supposedly coming from Kellogg's. In the video the reviewer ate both saying that the oatmeal Creme Pies were spicier than anticipated and that the Cosmic Brownies were too chocolatey. Is too chocolatey even possible? (I know it is but my favorite ice cream is extreme Chocolate moose tracks. I LOVE TOO MUCH CHOCOLATE!) The Oatmeal Creme Pies had a box that looked very convincing by my standards. However, it's impossible to know if it's real or not from this video alone. ? From what I could see the box didn't read "SAMPLE" anywhere on the front. Which may mean that if this is real, this could be coming out very soon. Conversely, the Cosmic Brownies didn't even have box art. The cereal came from a plain white box. The pieces themselves looked very chocolatey and square which are strikingly similar to the shape of the recently released Cocoa Puffs Brownie Crunch which has me hesitant to say it's real. As with all rumors and leaks take this with a grain of salt. But this news at least has me interested. I would love oatmeal to be explored more as a cereal flavor/texture. I reached out to Little Debbie's and Kellogg's and if I hear back I'll update you then. #cereal #cerealrumor #cerealleak #littledebbies #oatmealcremepie #oatmealcremepiecereal #cosmicbrownie #cosmicbrowniecereal #foodleak #foodrumor

Luckily, we don’t have to speculate about the legitimacy of this cereal anymore. Little Debbie already confirmed the rumors on its official social media pages, including the alleged packaging. As indicated on the packaging, the cereal consists of “crispy oatmeal puffs with a creme coating.” Of course, this is a subtle nod to the original wheat-grain sandwich cookies with the famous creme filling. And if the classic treat goes well with a glass of milk, then the same will go for its cereal form as well.
Apparently, this is the first-ever Little Debbie treat to get a cereal transformation. Well, the timing couldn’t be more perfect, as this year also marks the original snack’s 60th anniversary. According to another post from @cerealsnob, the new cereal will hit the shelves in December 2020. It will be available in 9.1-ounce boxes and 14.5-ounce boxes with a suggested retail price of $3.99 and $5.69, respectively.
As the holidays draw closer, we bet that we’ll see more of these snack-inspired cereals along the way. Can’t December come any sooner?
