Dry cereal and other breakfast-oriented varieties are adding flexibility and choice to the consumer experience, both in-line and end-cap grocery set innovation.
Following a five-year hiatus, Kellogg and Cinnabon re-collaborated to bring Kellogg’s Cinnabon Bakery Inspired Cereal back to store shelves. It was Kellogg’s No. 1 requested cereal the year it was discontinued, says Sadie Garcia, director of brand marketing at Kellogg All Family Cereal.
“After first reintroducing Kellogg’s Cinnabon Bakery Inspired Cereal in a whole new Jumbo Snax form last year, we’re [granting] fans’ wishes and bringing back the original cereal fans know and love.”
Kellogg’s and The Elf on the Shelf also teamed up to debut Kellogg’s The Elf on the Shelf North Pole Snow Creme Cereal, its first-ever cereal that cools consumers palates, the company says. The Official Cereal of the North Pole flavor joins Kellogg’s The Elf on the Shelf Hot Cocoa and Sugar Cookie cereals, Jumbo Snax and a range of branded portfolio products.
