'Star Wars' Cereal Is Coming Back and It Looks Out of This World
The Force is strong with this one.
Do you love Star Wars? Do you also love cereal? Well, then, do I have news for you: General Mills announced that its popular Star Wars-themed special-edition cereal is returning, just as hype around the series’ ninth movie is taking off.
The fruit-flavored cereal will be available in two packages—one featuring Kylo Ren and one featuring BB-8—and will include marshmallows shaped like your favorite Star Wars characters and objects, including BB-8, R2D2, a Jedi Starfighter, a stormtrooper, and a lightsaber.

The cereal, which is rolling out in grocery stores nationwide this month, will cost about $2.50 per box.
Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker is set to premiere December 20, and General Mills isn’t the only company taking advantage of the inevitable excitement that surrounds each film.
Le Creuset, known for their luxury kitchen equipment, debuted a special-edition Star Wars line a few weeks ago. If your sci-fi-loving heart desires, can buy a Millenium Falcon trivet for $20, a $25 Porg-shaped pie bird, or an R2D2 mini cocotte for $30. Oh, and did I mention that they’re selling a $900 Dutch oven? Yep, the hand-painted pot (which features an admittedly gorgeous Tatooine-inspired sunset design) costs 900 big ones.
So, yeah, I think we’ll stick to the cereal.
