Fruity Pebbles was first introduced by Post Foods in 1971. It is the oldest cereal brand based on characters from a TV series or movie. I’m always on the lookout for the next cereal based on a TV show or character that could be as successful as the Fruity Pebbles brand. Yes, I’m that nerdy. Now and again, I see cereals introduced that could be the next great cartoon based cereal, but they never last or they are always limited-edition. In the last 10 years, I have seen and bought a Scooby Doo cereal, Spider-man cereal, Pirates of the Caribbean and Indiana Jones cereals; however, none of these sweetened confectionary breakfast treat cereals were popular enough to be as long-lived as Post’s Fruity Pebbles which is really strange and odd since a new Flintstones animated television show or movie has not been released since 2001. I’ve always considered SpongeBob to be this generation’s Mickey Mouse. Like The Simpsons, I do believe SpongeBob will always be around. I look forward to pouring me a big bowl SpongeBob SquarePants cereal later this evening.
