Gremlins Cereal was a cereal based on the movie Gremlins. Due to the movie's high critical and financial success, a cereal was made. One commercial known to have advertised this was showing Gizmo eating the cereal. The cereal's taste was similar to Captain Crunch. The cereal was cancelled after the movie left theaters. The cereal had a sale of Gizmo plush figures for $9.95 including two purchases of the cereal. The cereal is sweetened. The cereal was under copyright by the cereal company Ralston.

There was a free sticker in every box as well. There were 11 different types of Gremlins stickers.

ReceptionEdit

The cereal met positive reviews, voted the favorite cereal of 1980s. However, some people have noted the cereal's similar taste to Cap'n Crunch, a famous cereal made by Quaker Oats Company.

Plush Toy SalesEdit

Gizmo cereal

During that time, Gizmo plush toys were on sale by mail-delivery. They cost $9.95. You could also get 2 Gremlins Cereal proofs of purchase. Similar to the movie, the plush toy, based on Gizmo, had large credit given to Steven Spielberg, who worked as executive producer of the movie.



The CommercialThe narrator says, "Hungry? Hungry as a Gremlin? Here's Gremlins' cereal" showing Gizmo eating the cereal. Then, a chorus group sings the lyrics:"Gremlins, Gremlins, bite after bite, what a tasty way to satisfy a Gremlin appetite" Then, a boy with unusual ears reaches for milk. The boy's ears are similar to how children can look monstrous if hungry for the Chef Boyardee's canned foods in commercials, (although those commercials were after the Gremlins Cereal production) and even resemble a Gremlin's ears. Then, the narrator says, " Gremlins Cereal is a deliciously sweet part of a healthy, nutricious breakfast". http://youtu.be/iU-BLu7NSQE To see the commercial! Uploaded March 2013!
