Chicken And Waffles Cereal Is Coming To Walmart In An Exclusive, Limited Drop

One of the most popular culinary pairings across the United States just got turned into a breakfast cereal.

Fresh from the creative minds at Post Cereal, this Chicken & Waffles cereal contains pieces that both look and taste like the classic combo. You’ll be getting a hit of both sweet and savory here, which is going to be an exclusive drop at Walmart.

This release is a part of the “Honey Brunches of Oats” collection. The other brunch item getting twisted into cereal for this launch is Maple Bacon Donuts, which as you might expect, comes in the shape of mini donuts.

Both will be available in a limited-time drop at select Walmart stores across the country, which should have them in stock by March 7th at the latest.

With brunch totally covered in cereal form, all that’s left to decide is whether you serve these in a bowl of milk or mimosa. I’m leaning towards the latter.

This Single Egg Became The Most-Liked Photo On Instagram

2019 has barely begun and an unknown account as appeared to accomplish the unthinkable: become the most-liked photo on Instagram. So what kind of celebrity could be behind such a behemoth post that’s garnered over 30 million likes through the course of 10 days? Is it Selena Gomez drinking another bottle of Coke, hoping to reclaim her title?

Nope, there’s no celebrity behind this. No brand pushing a new item. The most-liked photo on Instagram  has become a simple image of an un-cracked egg that may or may not be a stock photo from somewhere.

Instagram account @world_record_egg posted a photo on January 4 of a simple brown egg over a white background.

In a matter of days, the photo gained an inconceivable number of likes for an account that’s essentially a newcomer, eventually surpassing previous record holder Kylie Jenner’s 18 million likes post of her newborn, and then doubling it in a day.

At the time of publication, the egg photograph had more than 36 million likes on Instagram, with it expected to climb even higher in the days to come.

What’s funny is the @world_record_egg doesn’t have any previous posts before the egg photo. In fact, the entirety of the account seemed to be based around beating Jenner’s record.

This can’t be the first time an account has attempted to set the world record for likes, but something about this egg has cracked the Instagram algorithm for success.

We’ll do some digging to see if there’s a story behind this phenomenon. In the meantime, the egg photo is gaining about 1 million likes each hour since yesterday as a sort of a snowball effect of success.

Perhaps in a few days, Jimmy Kimmel will announce to the world that he’s secretly running this account. Perhaps.

Post has teamed up with Hostess for two separate cereal creations based on the pastry maker’s treats. Powdered Donettes and Honey Buns are both getting the treatment, being served up in tiny cereal form. The Honey Buns have rings of cinnamon in theirs, while the Powdered Donettes cereal has the appearance and taste of the gas station snack staple.

Chips Ahoy! And Nutter Butter Cereal Are Both Coming To Walmart This Month

2017 has been quite the year for sugar-rush novelty cereals. We were graced with the return of Oreo O’s and an all-marshmallows Lucky Charms box this past May. Now, we’re getting treated to Chips Ahoy! and Nutter Butter cereal variants heading into 2018.

Post, who was responsible for the Oreo O’s reboot, is also spearheading the launch of the two classic cookies in breakfast form. The Nutter Butter cereal won’t contain actual cookie sandwiches, but instead has peanut-shaped pieces with a peanut butter coating.

The Chips Ahoy! Cereal, on the other hand, is literally a box chock full of mini chocolate chip cookies. They’re meant to be eaten in cereal form, but by the handful might be how I want to mow through these instead.

Both cookie breakfasts will be available online and in stores starting December 26th. Based on Post’s site, it looks like this will be the case for Walmart, so make sure to check their website next Friday or head into stores once Christmas is over. Not all Walmarts will be carrying the cereals, however, but Post has a store locator you can use to find those that do.

According to Post, you can use the new Pebbles to improve upon recipes like churros and doughnuts. Personally, we’re down to just crush a bowl with some milk. When it comes to breakfast cereal, sometimes the simpler you go the better.

Poppin’ Fruity Pebbles: The Pop Rocks of Breakfast Cereal? [VIDEO]

Who wouldn’t want candy for breakfast? Wouldn’t you, if not now, in your earlier, better-metabolized days, sparkle at the chance to take a whole glossy packet of strawberry Pop Rocks and pour it over your delicious, albeit carbonation-free, bowl of Fruity Pebbles?

poppin-berries

Well, we would, so when we were given the opportunity to try Post’s brand new line of Poppin’ Pebbles cereal before it hit stores, of course we jumped at it. “New Poppin’ Pebbles has poppin’ pieces which fizz in your mouth and is bursting with berry flavor,” the email pitch read. We imagined fruity, sugary flakes akin to the jagged Pop Rocks candies of our childhoods, that’d snap, crackle, and pop all over our tongues and make our stomachs churn when mixed with soda. And that’s exactly what we got.

Well, sort of. First, the “snap” factor in the Poppin’ Pebbles doesn’t come from the regular pebbles themselves, but instead from the round, carbon dioxide-loaded, green pieces that are mixed in with them. Second, we’re a little sad to report, the pieces themselves weren’t all that poppin’.

poppin-pebbles-3

The truth is, when tried one after the other, the Poppin’ Pebbles utterly fizzled in comparison to the actual explosive candy Pop Rocks. It wasn’t bad, necessarily. Both on its own and in milk, the cereal definitely did something to our mouth holes. It just didn’t do the thing. The thing that surprised our five year-old selves and turned us into lifelong fans of candy carbonation in the first place.

Overall, Poppin’ Pebbles are definitely a semi-fun way to liven up your breakfast table with sensation and sound. Just don’t expect them to blow your mind the way Pop Rocks did way back when. Sigh.

Poppin’ Pebbles will be available nationwide starting January 1, 2014, along with a new, chocolatey-er Xtreme Cocoa Pebbles to turn your milk chocolate.

Wacky Honey Bunches of Oats Fruit Blends

Honey Bunches of Oats have always been a good standby in my cupboard, but maybe not anymore. It might get bumped up to number one with their new fruit blends line! Peach and Raspberry? Blueberry and Banana? How did anyone not come up with these breakfast cereal combos before? Although we haven’t gotten a chance to try it yet, I’m imagining the perfect amount crunch, nuttiness, and sweet flavorful punch.
