Is there enough gratuitous murder in your breakfast? Your answer is probably no, unless you live near a KFC. But don’t worry, toymakers and all-around pop culture fanatics Funko are here to help. They’ve just released images for their new line of, get this, franchise-themed breakfast cereals. And heading up their list are two very murdery, very breakfast appropriate familiar faces: Freddy Krueger and Jason Voorhees.
This news comes to us via the Funko Website. According to their article, the Freddy and Jason cereals will be available at the Funko website and also at FYE. Additional varieties will be sold at Gamestop, Hottopic, and BoxLunch. Sales begin this month. Though the website says that these cereals are a limited time offer, we don’t get any word on how long they’ll be on sale. Whatever the date, these boxes will sell fast, so make sure to get yours quick!
Still not convinced? I get that. If you’re anything like me, cereal isn’t just an important part of your morning, but your lifestyle. Well, let me assure you that Funko knows what it’s doing. Every box of Freddy or Jason FunkO’s features a prize at the bottom of the box. Of course, those are the Pop version of each cereal’s respective mascot. So you’ve got your prize at the bottom and cool mascot. What’s the one other thing you need for a perfect bowl of sugary perfect? That’s right, color changing milk. Again, Funko’s on it. Each box of horror FunkO’s turns your milk a blood red. It may not be the healthiest breakfast in the world, but for anyone who remembers waking up to their favorite cartoons on TV and on a cereal box, it’s a can’t miss.
Of course, Funko isn’t just stopping at Freddy & Jason. There are some other horror icons headed to their cereals, characters like Elvira and Pennywise the Clown to name a few. But tell us, what horror icons do you think deserve their own cereal? What color would your choice turn the milk? Give us a shoutout on Twitter to let us know.
