Introducing Sour Patch Kids® Flavored Cereal
It’s Not a Sour Prank! The Candy-Inspired Cereal You’ve Been Dreaming About Is Finally In Stores
Lakeville, MN (January 22, 2018) – Post Consumer Brands and Mondelēz International are making this winter a little less sour, with the new sweet Post SOUR PATCH KIDS® flavored Cereal. Inspired by the fan-favorite SOUR PATCH KIDS® soft & chewy candy, the latest collaboration from Post and Mondelēz International is so delicious, candy and cereal fans alike may think they’re dreaming.
The SOUR PATCH KIDS® inspired cereal features fun, “kid” shaped pieces with a sour coating and a sweet finish. Whether enjoyed in a bowl of milk or straight out of the box, Post SOUR PATCH KIDS® flavored cereal brings the SOUR THEN SWEET ® flavor of SOUR PATCH KIDS® candy to every flavorful bite.
“Following the launch of Post OREO O’s® cereal, NUTTER BUTTER® flavored cereal and CHIPS AHOY!® flavored cereal last year, we are excited to introduce fans to a new first-of-its-kind cereal, one that they never dreamed was possible” said Roxanne Bernstein, Chief Marketing Officer, Post Consumer Brands. “Post SOUR PATCH KIDS ® flavored cereal brings the SOUR THEN SWEET ® taste of the beloved candy brand right to the cereal bowl. Fans have been curious about this new SOUR THEN SWEET ® cereal, and we can’t wait for them to learn how delicious the cereal is both straight out of the box and with milk.”
Post SOUR PATCH KIDS® flavored cereal is available in Walmart stores now, but the ‘kids’ aren’t stopping there – fans can find the cereal in major retailers across the country starting in June 2019.
