There’s a Joker in my cereal!

No, really, I’m not kidding, there is a real live (OK, so he’s not “alive” live, but you know what I mean) Joker in my cereal. Yeah, Yeah, I know that me talking about Batman isn’t something that you really expect me to be doing here on this blog, but you have to believe, me here, there is like a real reason. Stay with me for just a minute, and I’ll get there. (Oh, and if you aren’t hungry yet, you soon will be.)

So, it isn’t like I’ve gone over to the DC side of comics, but, well, I’ve been picking up comics-related, movie tie-in toys for like two months now, and — ya gotta believe me — I really couldn’t help myself. Really. You see, I have this sort of fetish about collecting food-related toys, and well, this qualifies as comicbook-related food toys, so it is fair game.

So here it is. I couldn’t help myself. Well, I actually spotted my first Dark Knight-related food toy today. It was a box of cereal with Batman figures in them. Personally, I’m more of a Cheerios for breakfast kind of guy, but well, I spotted these Golden Grahams with Batman figures, and I figured that I’d snag one. Only I didn’t get a Batman figure, but a Joker figure, which is cool, I suppose.

ANd that isn’t the last of it, apparently there are Batman Reese's Peanut Butter Cups, (and in more than one configuration, Yep, there are chocolate Batmans all over), as well as in Cheerios.

More as this develops.

Cinnamon Toast Crunch is pretty tasty. *Chomp*

Now this takes me back. I'll probably end up buying cereal just to get some toys now. I'm such a kid.

It is good to be a kid.

Yeah, these figures are pretty great! There are also some mini-comics, spinning tops, & disc launchers. For more news be sure to check out the Bat-Blog!

Thanks, Tommy
