Star Wars Cereal Trilogy – Review & Giveaway

In our house, Star Wars is a favorite. The boys haven’t even watched the movies yet but they know all the characters, thanks to some books and their Dad! If something has C-3PO, R2D2, Yoda, or even Darth “Mater” on it, you better believe the boys will think it’s cool!

We actually saw the Star Wars artwork cereal at WalMart first, and J pointed it out excitedly, saying, “Oh LOOK, this cereal is COOL!” I told him we might just get to have that at our house sometime, knowing that ours was on its way for us to review. Sure enough, a couple of days later we had a box waiting for us on the porch!

At first glance you might think this is just regular cereal:

Which in itself would be exciting to the boys! Lucky Charms & Cinnamon Toast Crunch are a special treat for them anyway… but the coolest part occurs when we turn the boxes around:

We’ll definitely be cutting out the backs of these boxes to keep  – how cool is the design? Of course, as any Star Wars fan would know, this art has been released to commemorate STAR WARS The Complete Saga on Blu-ray, which came out in September. This is the first time that the entire saga has been offered in one package. That, along with the quality that Blu-ray provides, makes this exciting for all fans (great gift idea for the holidays)!

Exclusively at Walmart, look for specially marked boxes of Big G cereals, including Honey Nut Cheerios, Cinnamon Toast Crunch, and Lucky Charms. Collect all three to create a Star Wars panoramic poster showcasing your favorite characters, like Darth Vadar, Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, Princess Leia and more.

One lucky reader will win a fun prize pack that includes:

  • One box of each of the following cereals to form their own Star Wars panoramic poster:
    • Honey Nut Cheerios
    • Cinnamon Toast Crunch
    • Lucky Charms
  • $25 Walmart gift card

This contest is open to all U.S. residents. Entries will be accepted until the end of the day (midnight Central) Monday, October 24.

Mandatory Entry: Comment on this post telling me what your (or your kids’) favorite Big G Cereal is.

(Only valid after the required entry has been completed)

Please leave a comment for each extra entry – if you blog about this giveaway and get 2 entries, for example, comment 2 times.

Disclosure: The cereal, gift card, information, and giveaway have been provided by General Mills through MyBlogSpark.


Sam’s Club Gift Card Giveaway

We’re big fans of Sam’s Club. I have to admit, our first interest in going there stemmed from needing candy – lots of it. We had bought a candy machine at an antique store and wanted to fill it with Skittles, so we knew Sam’s was the place to go!

I recently got the chance to get a Plus Membership at Sam’s, courtesy of MyBlogSpark, and am pretty excited to take advantage of the benefits – for one thing, coupons – who doesn’t like those? But I’m also interested to try the Click ‘n’ Pull service, where I can place my order online and then just have to pick it up the next day. The Plus Membership also includes early shopping hours, which can be a lifesaver if you need to go get something before work or school.
