Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (2016)
From: General Mills
Introduced in 2016

This limited edition cereal, produced in partnership with Nickelodeon, is described on the box as a "sweetened corn and rice cereal (that is) naturally fruit flavored with other natural flavors." The cereal pieces are intended to look like the faces of the Ninja Turtle characters Donatello, Michelangelo, Leonardo and Raphael. But most would agree the pieces look more like multicolored, generic ghost faces.

The back of the introductory box had an activity panel titled "Become A Super Mutant Hero" with a cut-out Super Mutant ID Badge and a way to determine your personal mutant hero name and animal likeness. It turns out that I (Mr Breakfast) am a cheetah with the name Professor Neutron Mountain.

The first 7 ingredients listed on the nutrition panel are whole grain corn, whole grain rice, sugar, canola oil, color from vegetable juice and turmeric, natural flavor and salt.

The cereal was announced in April 2016 in advance of the film "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows" which hit theaters in June 2016. A television show titled "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" debuted on Nickelodeon in 2012. It was in its fourth season when this cereal came out.

It's important to note that another cereal called Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (1989) was introduced by Ralston back in 1989. That cereal came out a few months before the release of the first live action "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" film. The cereal itself was very different from the 2016 iteration. It was sweetened Chex-esque pieces mixed with marshmallow bits. Below are some pictures of the 1989 cereal:

    Disagree with the bad reviews. I think this was a decent, if unexceptional, cereal.

    This is exactly the same as Kaboom cereal. All they did was replace the clown with turtles.

    Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles... I really don't like it at all. It tastes like a cross between Lucky Charms and something else. My mom paid good money for it. This cereal is no good for kids.

    Ugh, why couldn't they just bring back the original Turtles cereal from the 90's? These were horrible tasting. They tasted like a bland version of Fruit Loops and the pieces were extra crunchy and didn't soften in the milk even after leaving them in for 30 minutes. I'd pass on these. Very weak tasting and not very sweet either for a kid's cereal.
