Star Wars
From: General Mills
Introduced in 2015


On May 4, 2015 (known to Star Wars fans as "May The 4th Be With You" Day), General Mills announced on their official blog that they would release a new limited edition Star Wars cereal. We saw the cereal first appear in stores on June 9th. Simply named Star Wars, the cereal consists of fruit-flavored corn puffs shaped like X-wings and Tie Fighters and marshmallows shaped like R2D2, Yoda, lightsabers, Jedi Starfighters and Stormtroopers.

The boxes unleashed in June feature Darth Vader and Yoda. It appears from General Mills press materials containing the tagline "choose your side" that the two boxes represent the two sides of the Force with Yoda representing the light side and Darth Vader playing for the dark side - as would be expected.

In December 2015 (following the December release of Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens), the cereal company introduced 2 additional box designs featuring the characters BB-8 and Kylo Ren. At that time, the cereal lost its Yoda marshmallow and gained a new orange swirly marshmallow that possibly resembles the BB-8 robot character.

The following images are from General Mills press materials announcing the upcoming cereal:

In advance of the new cereal, existing General Mills cereals such as Honey Nut Cheerios, Trix, Cookie Crisp and Cinnamon Toast Crunch began offering collectable Star Wars posters in select boxes.

In the U.K. in March 2015, a different Star Wars cereal was introduced by Kellogg's. That cereal featured a double-sided box with R2D2 on one side and Darth Vader on the other. The cereal itself consisted of "chocolate flavored wheat, wholewheat and rice cereal" shaped like moons and stars. The cereal box included the tagline "a new force at breakfast!"

It tastes like Lucky Charms, and it's like Lucky Charms, too. But it''s too sweet, and doesn't have enough marshmallows.

Yummy cereal! People have described Kaboom cereal as Berry Berry Kix or Fruity Cheerios with marbits... and that's exactly what this cereal tastes like. Is it Kaboomish?
