General Mills Cereal & Star Wars Recipe & Giveaway

18 Jun

General Mills and Star Wars are teaming up to offer exclusive vintage movie posters in every specially marked box of General Mills cereals! General Mills is once again connecting fans with what they love. Hidden inside each box, you will find one of six timeless movie posters featuring your favorite Star Wars films. Star Wars and cereal fans alike can collect all six classic posters in each participating brand of General Mills cereals, including Cinnamon Toast Crunch, Honey Nut Cheerios, Trix, Cookie Crisp and Reese’s Puffs. The specially marked boxes of Big G cereals hit store shelves this month, for a limited time only. Check out the #CerealWars Tumblr page that already launched for more fan fun surrounding the General Mills and Star Wars partnership.

I was asked to come up with a Star Wars themed recipe using General Mills cereal. We chose the Trix cereal and got creative in the kitchen. We wanted something that took little time to make. What could we turn cereal into? We chose Popsicles. It’s cool and on hot days and it only took seven-minutes to freeze.  

Ingredients: 

Trix cereal

Greek yogurt

Milk

That’s it. Depending on your Popsicle maker you will have to see how much of each ingredient you use. I put some cereal in a measuring cup with a few teaspoons of Greek yogurt and a splash of milk. Mix together and pour in your Popsicle maker. The mix shouldn’t be took thick, so not too much yogurt. It took me a few times till I got it right. I will add more cereal next time. You can try any cereal that you like. We liked the way the colors looked with the Trix cereal in the Popsicles. The kids acted like the Popsicles were lightsabers. We had fun creating this and eating the Popsicles of course. We’ve already collected posters and won’t stop till we find all of them. We have three more to go. May the force be with you!! 

Enjoy the recipe and comment if you try it out.

    My favorite is Cinnamon Toast Crunch. Sometimes when I get home late from work and don’t feel like making something, I eat cereal. I have been known to eat a whole box of Cinnamon Toast Crunch in one sitting.

      I don’t blame you it’s quick and easy and after a long day I would definitely go for the cereal. Thanks for entering. Good luck David!!
