How do you start your day when you gotta go fast? How about a nice bowl of Sonic Cereal? General Mills and SEGA have teamed up to celebrate “Sonic the Hedgehog 2″ and the blue blur’s 30th birthday. On top of cereal, they’re also releasing fruit snacks that kids and adults will both love.
Fans can collect gold rings just like Sonic with a new honey-flavored, ring-shaped cereal, complete with Chaos Emerald and Spin Dash marshmallows, as well as a fun back-of-the-box activity for a speedy way to start the day. The fruit snacks coming will have a variety of shapes and flavors for speedsters on the go.
“Our goal is to create holistic brand experiences for our consumers, and we’re so excited to be able to join SEGA to extend the ways that families can engage with the beloved Sonic the Hedgehog this spring,” said Katie Wong, head of Ideas & Partnerships for General Mills. “By bringing Sonic into the cereal and fruit snacks aisles, we’re able to bring together favorites of both kids and parents, alike.”
“General Mills is one of the foremost brands in the food industry — especially when it comes to youth-focused products, so we’re thrilled to partner up with them,” said Michael Cisneros, Senior Manager of Licensing at SEGA of America. “This partnership is a really fun and creative way to integrate some iconic aspects of the Sonic games into a whole new product line, and we’re excited to introduce it to Sonic fans.”
Look out for these at your local grocery store! They should be on shelves soon.
“Sonic The Hedgehog 2” is set to race into theaters April 8th, 2022.
