Polar Express
From: Post
Introduced in 2004


Limited Edition Polar Express Cereal was a promotional tie-in for the 2004 animated film The Polar Express directed by Robert Zemckis and starring the vocal talents of Tom Hanks. The film was based on a 1985 children's book by Chris Van Allsburg also titled The Polar Express

The cereal was described on the front of the box as a "cocoa cereal with marshmallow bits." The back of the cereal box had the heading "All Aboard The Polar Express". It included a maze game and encouragement for consumers to "Play 'The Polar Express' Train Adventure (game)" on a Post website.

The cereal itself consisted of brown cocoa-flavored snowflakes and marshmallows in the shapes of bells, trains, mountains, white snowflakes, and reindeer.

    This would be amazing to have it come back... maybe just at Christmas time. I see I'm not alone in thinking it was great.

    Polar Express cereal was cool, but I always thought the kid in the movie was kind of a wimp.

    This cereal needs to be around to purchase each Christmas. The Polar Express will be a favorite book for years to come. It is especially popular with teachers of young children. Wonderful units are planned around this book, and the cereal would be an added bonus to use for eating, counting, and just plain fun.

    Dear Post - Will you put this cereal out on the market for Christmas? I am a kindergarten teacher and would love to introduce it to my students during our Polar Express unit.

    There are so many of us who are teachers and we do a Polar Express Unit and we need the cereal for a math graphing activity... is there anyway you can make that happen? All teachers would be forever grateful.

    I feel that Post should have the cereal every year if just for the month of December for teachers to use with the thematic lesson. By Teacher Logan WV.
