'Rick and Morty'-inspired Strawberry Smiggles and 15 more pop culture cereals

Are you one of those breakfast cereal consumers who eats all the marshmallows from the Lucky Charms, Frankenberry and Count Chocula, leaving everyone else to deal with the less sugary remains of the box?

If so, you may want to snag a package of the Rick and Morty-inspired Strawberry Smiggles, the fake cereal featured in a commercial parody during the Adult Swim show’s “Rixty Minutes” episode. The faux treat has become a real collectible, and a very tasty edible one at that: there’s none of that pesky grain cereal inside, leaving Smiggles eaters with a box full of pastel marshmallow goodness!

Rick and Morty and Top Hat Jones — the creepy Smiggles mascot, who’s a blend of the Trix rabbit and the Lucky Charms leprechaun — aren’t the only pop culture characters to inspire real boxes of breakfast cereal. Peruse the entries in our trip down pop culture cereal memory lane, and curse the cereal gods that amazing treats like Urkel-Os, C-3POs, and Gremlins cereals are no longer available for purchase at your local supermarket.
