Who remembers watching the SuperFriends cartoon? I do! I’m a child of the 70’s and eating cereal while waiting for the SuperFriends cartoon to come on was a morning routine. Seriously, it was a must to start your day with Batman™, Superman™, Wonderwoman™, and Aquaman™ saving the world, which is why the upcoming Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice movie is on my “must see” movie list. How exciting to finally see both Batman™ AND Superman™ together on the silver screen! Plus, there are rumors of a Wonderwoman™ and Aquaman™ appearance too! For fans of the SuperFriends generation, this is mind blowing, right?!
Fast forward a few years (or a few decades) and SuperFriends is no longer on television, but the love of super heroes lives on in my kids. They can’t wait until the March 25 Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice movie release date. And to help celebrate this momentous moment in super hero history, General Mills is offering two limited edition cereal flavors: Superman™ Caramel Crunch and Batman™ Chocolate Strawberry. In addition, starting on March 7th, General Mills will be including 1 of 4 collectible comic books inside specially marked packages of Honey Nut Cheerios, Trix, Coco Puffs, and Lucky Charms!
While the Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice movie is a huge deal, cereal is also a big deal at our house. With four teens in the house, cereal is a pantry staple. So of course, adding Superman™ Caramel Crunch and Batman™ Chocolate Strawberry cereal into the mix made for very happy teens, who couldn’t wait to dig right in. Normally, I would let my kids have at it, but not this time. After all, these were the limited edition Superman™ Caramel Crunch and Batman™ Chocolate Strawberry cereals, so there had to be an epic battle – a Batman™ v Superman™ Cereal Design & Taste Challenge!
Batman™ v Superman™ Cereal Design & Taste Challenge!
At first, my kids weren’t too keen on the challenge. They rolled their eyes at me and protested. But I stood my ground because playing with food is fun and a great way to get them focused on something other than their electronics.
To participate in the challenge, I gave my kids a bowl of each cereal and 15 minutes to come up with their cereal design. Considering there was a lot of cereal eating during the design challenge, the kids still managed to complete their designs and vote for their favorite cereal, which happens to be the #batmancereal.
