Exclusive Holo Promos in ‘Cinnamon Toast Crunch’ Cereal

Heavily processed, packed with sugar, and a potential cause of childhood obesity, the latest edition of Cinnamon Toast Crunch cereals are now carrying special Pokemon TCG promo booster packs!

Each booster pack comes with three of twelve reprinted cards, with one of the three cards guaranteed to be a holo card.

While eight of the twelve cards are common reprints from sets, there are four holo Sun & Moon black star promo cards which are reprinted on an exclusive holofoil paper: Rowlet, Litten, Popplio, and Pikachu. These four cards are thus exclusive to this product, but luckily you’ll get at least one of them in each booster pack.

The holofoil for these cards has unique circular patterns which have never before been used on Pokemon cards.

Each box of cereal runs about $3. It’ll probably take four to six boxes to get all four of the holo cards, or about $20.

The last time Pokemon partnered with a cereal brand was way back in 2000. But those cereals didn’t come with cards or any goodies, they were just Lucky Charms with a Pokemon theme. In the 2000’s, Pokemon also occasionally packaged CD’s in some cereals, such as the old PokeROM educational CD’s and even the “Pokemon Play It!” TCG game. This is thus the first time in over 15 years that Pokemon has been featured on cereals!

    I got one of these packs the other day and haven't opened it yet. Is it worth keeping it sealed? Could it be worth something someday?

    But in all seriousness, this is alright, but eh. I don't eat cereal tho so yea. Mcdonalds did this as well(but not with custom booster pack art) so I really don't care tbh

    Indeed, America always gets the best stuff. Well, after Japan.

    And man, now you've got me reminicing about the Kelloggs Pokémon cereal. That's one they actually released on our side around 2000/2001. Was perfect for mornings watching Pokémon on Sky One (Yes, I'm old, deal with it XD)

  16. Depends on who you ask. Some in UK wish they would get the figures we get. I happen to wish we could get the jumbo cards they get. No question though that Japan gets the best stuff.

    I want the Pikachu, too bad it's a one in four odds.

    7/12 of these cards are also in McDonald's collection 2017 (exact print) including the Pikachu. Does this potentially mean that won't be releasing in the US and this is kind of an attempt to make up for it?

    Promotional cards packaged in other products to promote the TCG outside of Japan?!

    Who'da thunk it. Never thought I'd see that happen.

    The Rowlet, Litten, Popplio, and Pikachu were released in a 4 card Sun Moon promo pack in Japan last year. The holo pattern is different from these new cereal holos, however, the artwork is exactly the same. I bought that Japan set just to get the Pikachu for my Pikachu collection. Now we will be eating lots of CTC to find a Pikachu (unless I get one in the 1st box)!
