As I sit here eating my Sultana Bran and reading the latest news from E3, I can't help but wonder: what happened to videogame-themed cereals?
As any astute student of pop-culture in the late 80s/early 90s will tell you, videogame-themed cereals were once common and popular. Not here, of course — we didn't get anything good back then — but in the United States. For example, observe the following ridiculous ad for the so-called Nintendo Cereal System:
Apparently they tasted terrible, but who cares? I'd have eaten them back in the day, and so would have you. However, what I'm interested to know is what kind of videogame-themed cereal you'd eat now. Say someone from Kellogs asked for your advice on the subject — what would you suggest? Super Wari-Os? Metroid Morphballs? Fallout 3 Sugar Bombs? Lemme know in the comments. If your responses are particularly clever, I'll collect the best and post them later today.
