The very first Star Wars movie came out the day after I was born in 1977. The Return of the Jedi came out 6 years later and as far back as I can remember my family has been fans ever since. My brother is two years younger than I am and he had everything from the lunch box to the pajamas. I remember watching the movies and pretending to be the characters in the movie with my cousins. Of course I was a huge Princess Leia fan!
Well guess what??? On June 1st #starwars cereal has been at all major retailers and grocery stores across the country!! Yippee!! I can’t wait for my boys to get into watching Star Wars with my husband and me. They are going to just love it like we do!! We can finally bring The Force to the breakfast table!!
Before writing this post I received 2 boxes of the Star Wars cereal to try and write about. I had taken them out of the box they came in and had set them on the counter. I walked to the other room and before I knew it my boys had already opened the boxes anxious to try the fruity flavored cereal with marshmallows.
Not only does the cereal come in two limited edition boxes but it also contains whole grains and is a good source of calcium and vitamin D.
The Marshmallows “Marbits” are in 6 fun shapes:
• Yoda (green)
• R2-D2 (blue and white)
• Jedi Fighter (pink/red)
• Stormtrooper (white)
• Lightsaber (blue)
• Lightsaber (red)
The Corn pieces also are in 3 fun shapes
• TIE Fighter
• X-Wing Starfighter
• Millenium Falcon
During the school year when we eat breakfast we are always in such a hurry that by the end of the year we were stuffing our faces in the car! I kid you not!! So now that we are into summer our mornings are a lot slower and enjoyable. And surprisingly we are able to sit at the table as a family. This last week while bringing The Force to the breakfast table we came to notice that the back of the boxes had some pretty cool games to play while we eat.
The Yoda Box has a quiz on the back of the package for us to test our Star Wars knowledge and the Darth Vader Box has a board game on the back of the box for fans to play as they eat. These 2 boxes will only be available for the next couple of months. Throughout the year till June 2016 you will be able to collect all 6 limited edition boxes featuring different characters. They will come out in sets of 2 each featuring one light side character and one dark side character.
So…which side of The Force are you on? I would love to hear in the comments. 🙂

Until next time, may the force be with you and have a Glorious Week!!
