Introduced in 2006
This cereal was described on the box as a "naturally sweetened chocolate pearl-shaped cereal with pirate-shaped marshmallows".
The cereal came out in 2006 in advance of the theatrical release of the the film Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest starring Johnny Depp, Orlando Bloom and Keira Knightley.
The back of the box featured an activity panel with maze game to "test your navigation skills" and word game called "Fill In The Planks!"
The following year (2007), Kellogg's introduced another cereal called Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest which was a tie-in for the same film which was "only in theaters" still according to that cereal's box top.
Company Description: Kellogg's was originally founded as the Battle Creek Toasted Corn Flake Company in 1906. The company's founder Will Keith Kellogg is credited with inventing corn flakes along with his brother John Harvey Kellogg. The company was renamed the Kellogg Company in 1922...

I ate this cereal when I was a teenager because, well, I'm a sucker for marshmallow shapes and I liked the movie. Little did I know that I had discovered the greatest cereal of all time. No cereal I have eaten since has compared to this. I seriously wish it had a generic form or something because every part was great. The chocolate rice balls didn't taste like cardboard like so many others do, but instead had a nice deep milky richness. There was a perfect balance of marshmallow to grain. And it turns the milk brown, which was fun to me. Seriously I loved this cereal. Best one I've eve eaten. And all people can talk about is the box.

Johnny Depp is the man. There should be a cereal just called Johnny Depp Cereal. I'd buy it. I don't even care what flavor.

I never was able to try this cereal. Every time a shipment arrived at the store, it was sold out.
It wasn't children, but adults they liked this cereal. Especially women.
I can imagine the possibility they were collecting or eBaying it, but I would really love to hear from someone who actually ate it some time.
