Ad check out the cereal itself! The box promises “intergalactic stars and moons” and that is exactly what we get. A glorious bowl full of them. I don’t know if they are truly intergalactic or not, but stars and crescent moons is exactly what this cereal is shaped like.
Yep, it seems Kellogs has simply replaced the bear with BB-8 and Kylo and reshaped the flakes. They’re not bad at all. It’s just… they’re Choco’s. Plain and simple. A taste I’ve been familiar with since I was 10. I would’ve liked a new cereal altogether, Kellogs. You know, something that lives up to the “intergalactic” moniker you branded it with. Not just plain and simple (yet delicious) earth-Choco’s.
My other gripe is purely a collecting issue. While previous tie-ins with Star Wars got us great goodies, this one doesn’t. I recall the small character busts for episode 1. The refractor cards for episode 2. Sticker dispensers, crystals, mugs, bowls… All of them great. For Episode 7 we get nothing. Unless you count the cutout doorhanger on the back of BB-8… A crying shame.
