    There Are A LOT Of Weird Cereal Products On The Market β€” I Taste-Tested The 13 Absolute Weirdest

    Are these unnecessary or incredible?

    Have y'all been to a grocery store cereal aisle recently? They are...something. Apparently cereal has been expanding and doing ambitious crossovers to an extent that would make the Marvel Cinematic Universe clutch its pearls. There are cereals trying to be completely different foods, and random foods/flavors trying to be cereal β€” it's wild! The other day I spent 5 or 30 minutes just taking in all of the shocking cereal innovations.

    Then, I went to a couple different stores and expanded my search to multiple aisles to try to find the most interesting-sounding cereal-based products for one big taste-testing session. Here's a look at the strangest and most interesting stuff I found:

    Despite what I suspected it might do to my blood sugar levels, I tried each item so I could report my research back to you. A snackrifice I was honored to make on behalf of everyone, even though not a single person asked for this. Anyway, ready? Let's begin.

    1. Cosmic Brownies Cereal

    4. Trix Oatmeal

    Trix Oatmeal box

    This, and the other oatmeals that follow, have two separate packs. One containing just oats, the other a "topping" bag, which is pretty much just a small pack of the corresponding cereal. Here, I had some tiny pieces of Trix.

    Here's what the finished pancake I made looked like, though I must warn you, I did a terrible job on the flip so it's a sad, slightly mangled, aesthetically off-putting lil' guy:

    9. I paired my fugly pancake with the Fruity Pebbles Syrup.

    10. Lucky Charms Marshmallow Pancakes

    While the pancake mix already has some sort of colorful specks in it, there's also a small packet of Lucky Charms (mostly marshmallows) that can be added for topping.

    So of course I dumped that shit on top, and here's how that came out:

    That's it folks, but you want to know what's wild? I didn't even buy every single cereal item I saw. Here were some of the other things that exist β€” Cinnamon Toast Crunch cake, cookies, and frosting, Fruity Pebbles cake, and Rice Krispies Treats coffee creamer. Imagine what other cereal-based stuff might be sitting within the grocery store aisles near you, waiting for you to find them...
