Cereal Critters, A Series That Imagines Cereal Mascots As Action Figures


If you grew up –like most — hooked on the kiddie crack that is kids’ breakfast cereal, then you probably consider cereal mascots your breakfast heroes. Unfortunately, after all these years, Frankenberry and Quisp were never given the honor of being encapsulated in a blister bubble.

Artist Phil Postma wants to change all of that, by providing a visual of what a cereal mascot would look like if packaged as an action figure. Cereal Critters is a series of illustrations provided by Postma, with our favorite breakfast spokesmen nestled safe in their bubble packaging.

Which cereal mascot would you want to play with first? Or, would you immediately want to form some sort of justice league with all of the cereal monsters?

Clutch Handbags Made To Look Like Vintage Cereal Boxes


If you’re looking for the perfect cereal couture, you should be holding on to one of these clutch handbags that are made to look like vintage cereal boxes.

Brought to us by English designer Anya Hindmarch, the cereal box clutches are part of her new Imperial collection. They’re to be featured at Hindmarch’s new Mini-Mart, which hopes to bring “luxury to the not-so-luxurious world of mini-mart products.”

The “luxury” part comes in the form of the packaging graphics printed on python skin, and accented with suede lining and gold closures. They’re GRRREAT!!

Behold, The Rice Krispies Treat Burger


As we continue to explore new ways of sandwiching a burger, while encouraging adult onset diabetes, stuff like the Rice Krispies Treat Burger will keep happening.

Brought to us by The Vulgar Chef — one of these culinary monstrosities could be yours with little more than a burger patty, bacon, peanut butter, and a cereal box recipe. Somewhere, Snap, Crackle and Pop weep.

Foods Organized Neatly For Obsessive Compulsive Eaters


Things Organized Neatly is a single-serve Tumblr blog for obsessive compulsive folk. The site, curated by Austin Radcliffe, consists of nothing but items arranged into neat patterns, creating an art form in organization.

Whether the items are separated by color, shape, or are all part of a bigger unit — the project creates an aesthetic that is pleasing to the eyes, even if you’re not a neat-freak.

However, someone should tell them that separating Froot Loops is waste of time, considering that they’re all the same flavor.

Unicorn Barf Makes For A Magically Delicious Dessert


Unicorns defecate rainbows… We know this to be fact. However, not much thought has ever been given to what a unicorn’s vomit might look like. Until now.

Unicorn Barf is brought to us by Instructables member, Danger is my middle name. The simple recipe takes inspiration from Rice Krispies Treats — forgoing any annoying cereal, and making gooey squares from nothing but colorful Lucky Charms marbits.

So, there you have it… Unicorns are capable of providing rainbows from every orifice. And, something tells us that after a few blocks of Unicorn Barf, you’ll be expelling some rainbows too. The magically delicious recipe can be found here.
