Finally, some good news. Instagrammer @ThreeSnackateers posted a quick review of Pillsbury's new Funfetti cereal, suggesting that it should hit Walmart shelves very soon. It looks like the Funfetti ceral in the photo was a gift, so we checked Walmart's website and it's officially listed, so it's only a matter of time:

In a press release, Hometown Food Company revealed that Funfetti cereal will hit shelves in August. Boxes will cost between $3.50 and $5.50, depending on store location.

For us non-essential folks, quarantine life has induced a state of existence in which the when, what, why, and how of eating have ceased to matter entirely. If you want to have salted caramel-flavored Eggo waffles for lunch at 4 PM, nothing and no one can really.stop you. 

Maybe that explains why we’ve reached a point where a Funfetti-themed cereal exists.

As indicated by the seemingly omnipotent @CandyHunting, this cereal “should be out soon,” at least via Walmart, who already have the product listed on their website (though it’s not yet in stock). The box describes this rainbow-speckled puff cereal as “bursting with fun,” which frankly sounds pretty appealing at a time like this.

Believe it or not, a Funfetti-themed cereal may not be as out of left field as you’d think. Beyond its obvious presence in cake mixes, you can now find Funfetti as a type of edible cookie dough and even coffee creamer. So in essence, the introduction of Funfetti cereal just makes it possible to have a completely unbalanced breakfast based around a flavor of cake.

So if you’re sick of your existing cereal rotation and you want to eat something that truly indicates you’ve given up on any lingering concern for starting your day with a healthy breakfast, you know where to turn. Just don’t be surprised if it’s hard to find because everyone else has the exact same idea.
