If Alcohol Had Mascots Like Kids’ Cereal

1

Unlike impressionable young children and their breakfast cereal — we adults don’t need some cartoon mascot to get us to drink, thank you very much. But if we did, the ads might look something like what’s brought to us by Alex Watt of College Humor. Now who wants some booze and cereal?

Froot Loops Donuts

George Duran of the Hungry Channel, in search of the ultimate cereal-inspired donut, recently hit the streets of NYC for some hard-hitting Froot Loops research. The result, with help from pastry chef Katie Rosenhouse, is the Froot Loops Donut.

Fruit Loops Landscape and Other Processed Views

Created as a commentary on processed foods, photographers Barbara Ciurej & Lindsay Lochman brings us the Fruit Loops Landscape. Part of a series titled, Processed Views, the edible landscapes were inspired by photographer Carleton Watkins and 21st century industrial exploitation — specifically the current intersection of nurture, nature and technology.

Cerealism, Breakfast Cereal as Beautiful Landscapes

Cheeramids #3 by Ernie Button

With some creative use of breakfast cereal and macro photography, artist Ernie Button brings us Cerealism. The photo series, often using kids’ cereals, arranges the various oat clusters, marbits, and shredded wheat to create realistic landscapes. And the series, above anything else, does something that was once considered impossible — to make Grape Nuts somewhat appealing.

Realistic Illustrations of Cereal Mascots

Breakfast just got real, with illustrations by artist Guillermo Fajardo. The series, officially titled Breakfast Time, depicts some of our favorite breakfast cereal mascots as if they existed in the real world. No longer do we see the colorful and adorable Tony the Tiger or Count Chocula — Fajardo gives the mascots a morbid sense of realism. Show these to the kids, and perhaps it will scare them into trying some oatmeal or fruit for breakfast.
