Kellogg’s is releasing a ‘Super Mario’-themed cereal

Nintendo

Following the return of Super Mario toys to McDonald’s Happy Meals for the first time since the ’90s, fans of the classic video game will soon have a new food-related product featuring their favorite characters—and this one is filled with marshmallowy goodness.

Nintendo has confirmed that Kellogg’s Super Mario Cereal will be hitting sore shelves as early as Dec. 11. The box and the contents inside—you know, the delicious breakfast!— are both Super Mario-themed.

For fans playing “Super Mario Odyssey” on the Nintendo Switch, the cereal box will include an amiibo sticker that functions as an accessory for the game. All you have to do is tap the cereal box on the Nintendo Switch system, just like you would an amiibo, and you’ll receive gold coins or a heart in the game.

The cereal itself is filled with power-up marshmallows, like question boxes, different mushrooms and the 1-Up star. As for the flavor? The marshmallows taste like mixed berry!

“We are always looking for new opportunities to bring smiles to people of all ages, and this is a fun way to kick off the day,” Tom Prata, Nintendo of America’s senior vice president of strategic initiatives said in a press release.

We can’t wait to try it!

In the meantime, Nintendo is also in talks with Universal Pictures to create an animated Super Mario movie. No word yet on what it would be about, or even if it will happen, but keep it on your radar!

And if you’re a die hard fan—and willing to travel to Japan—check out this Super Ninetendo World Theme Park! The biggest attraction at the park will be the “Mario Kart” ride, which will give you the chance to race all of your favorite characters in real life!

For now, we’ll just be playing with our Happy Meal toys until we can get our hands on some of that cereal! Wahoo!
