After assuming I'd never find Super Mario Cereal, there was a stash at my local grocery store

Super Mario Cereal at Stop & Shop
I'm pretty stoked to have found a few boxes complete with power-up marshmallows and a built-in amiibo.
Nintendo cereal isn't a new concept. They have released several varieties over the years. What separates 2017's Super Mario Cereal is the built-in amiibo function found in every box! Just as you'd place an amiibo figure on your Gamepad or Switch, you can do the same thing with this cereal box.

Regardless of this being a typical kiddie-cereal laden with sugar, we think this packaging is pretty darn cool! It's food. It's an amiibo. I'm loving this! Thanks, Nintendo and Kellogg's!

The amiibo is advertised as being compatible with Super Mario Odyssey, but some have reported results in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. Adding to your gaming infatuation, Super Mario Cereal features a maze and trivia questions on the back of the box. Keep an eye out... if I can find it at my local supermarket, it must be in fairly wide distribution.

Best of all - each box was $2.50!
