Minecraft Cereal Creeping Onto Store Shelves

Finally, an answer to the burning question: what does a Creeper taste like?


For too long, Minecraft players have frantically smacked Creepers before exploding, only to think to themselves: "I wonder what that thing tastes like?" Wonder no more, because Kellogg's has announced a cereal that finally gives a flavor profile to the exploding slime monster.

Minecraft Creeper Crunch cereal is a cinnamon breakfast snack littered with green "Creeper Bit" marshmallows. It's coming to US store shelves this August, and you can pick up an 8oz box for $4 or a 12oz box for $6.

Does the promise of crunchy cinnamon candies and green marshmallows not tempt your palette? Then you may also be interested to know that each box will include a code to unlock one of 10 clothing items like jackets and cloaks. These don't appear to be exclusive cosmetics, but every time you don your snazzy pants you can think to yourself: "I obtained this by devouring a tie-in food product that turned my milk a sort of brownish-green."
