Apparently it doesn’t take much to get Kellogg to make you your own cereal, at least if you’re famous. Tim Burgess, lead singer for Charlatans was able to make his dream, “Totes Amazeballs“, a reality after merely tweeting a joke about its existence. When that existence of that tweet made itself apparent to Kellogg, the company responded by making the cereal actually exist, a surprisingly awesome way to react to a joke.
Totes Amazeballs consists of Rocky Road cake, Coco Pops, marshmallows, shortbread pieces, and raisins which frankly, sound totes amazeballs. Apparently Kellogg thought it sounded good too, although it’s worth noting that they made exactly one box. A Kellogg’s spokewoman described the whole thing this way to Adweek:
“It all came about a few weeks ago when Tim tweeted his fans about wanting to create a super cereal called Totes Amazeballs. We really try to make the most of Twitter here at Kellogg’s, and when we saw the tweet, we knew we had to make something special for him.”
Well that’s all fine and dandy, but what about the rest of us? I’ve have been wishing and hoping for just one box of Admiral Crunch for years now. I mean, I’d settle for Petty Officer First Class Crunch if I had to, but no one seems to make the stuff, which is really a crying shame. Is anyone going to make it for me? I highly doubt it, but a guy can dream, right?
