Harness Your Inner Super Hero with Big G Cereals

I am a fan of anything that encourages my grandchildren to read, so comic books get a big thumbs up from me. Pair that with our favorite cereals and BAM – POW!

Harness Your Inner Super Hero with Big G Cereals

In specially marked boxes of Big G cereals from now through April (while supplies last), you’ll find 4 exclusive issues of DC comic books featuring your favorite JUSTICE LEAGUE characters like Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, The Flash, Green Lantern, Aquaman and Cyborg. Participating Big G cereals include Cinnamon Toast Crunch™, Lucky Charms™, Honey Nut Cheerios™ , Trix™, Cookie Crisp™, and Reese’s® Puffs®. A bonus 5th issue is available in Cheerios only at Target.

Harness Your Inner Super Hero with Big G Cereals

One of the great things about super heroes and comic books is that they bring out the kid in all of us. It’s one of those things you never grow out of. Super heroes inspire us to be brave and fierce, and to help others. My granddaughters and I had a little chat about the qualities of a Superhero and came up with the following attributes: brave, strong, intelligent, helps others, role model, earns respect, likes gadgets, hard working, and have special powers. These are all fine qualities we should aspire to.

The special comic books have an activity for kids to do in the back of the comic. Kids can be part of the JUSTICE LEAGUE by helping the Super Heroes solve a word search, maze, connect the dots, or other activity. Then, they can head to the Big G Cereal Heroes website to read part 2 of the story. How fun is that?

  33. I think that is so awesome! I remember when they use to put stuff in all cereal. I wish they still did that. Kids now days have no idea how it feels to look in a box of cereal and find a surprise!!

  42. It’s been way too long since I had this cereal. It sure reminds me of a time when my kids would “beg” me for it. This phone looks just like what I need. I’ve been wanting to get one so when I win it it will be a blessing.

  43. This will be lots of fun for kids (both young and old) who will be on the look-out for these super hero prizes!

  44. Charlene says:

    I’m not a kid anymore(at least by age) but I love cereal boxes that give you something to do while you eat. Let your imagination soar. Keep it up Big G!

  45. I loved these when they put these in the cereal boxes. I like to read them too!

  46. My son is starting to like superheroes. I think he would love to own these comic books.

  47. My toddler loves superheroes and always wants to see what’s on his cereal boxes, lol. He’d totally love this.

  48. I remember when I was a kid getting all sorts of cool stuff in a cereal box. Back then, there was good stuff (at least to me as a kid) like toys and superhero stuff. Now, most cereals have nothing at all or at the most, something like a little paper cutout. I’m glad to see a DC comic in the cereal box, although I have to confess that I like the Marvel Universe much better.

  49. The cereal box seems to be entertaining for kids.

  50. saminder gumer says:

  73. Kitty Iecvan says:

    This sounds like a fun idea for cereal boxes!

  74. I’m a fan of super hero comic what I was young. My kids are still too young to appreciate them. But I think they definitely will pretty soon. :)

  75. Christina says:

    I agree that its good to get the kids reading while eating the cereal and a great way other than just reading the boxes.

  76. I really do like that they are encouraging kids to read in ANY form. Kudos!!!

  77. Dorothy Boucher says:

    this looks like so much fun , love how you can interact and eat healthy to :) go breakfast

  78. Paula Morgan says:

    I am ALL FOR anything that encourages kids to READ!! As soon as either of my own kids expressed an interest in something growing up, I would get them an “age appropriate” book about it. Not only did it encourage them to read, but it educated them about so many varied subjects, from Dinosaurs and Sharks to Aquariums and Parakeets…and so much more!! I also made sure, at an early age, to tell my kids about faraway places, and read to them, shared with them, and I was so extremely proud when they were in their later years in school, to find out that my 2 kids were among the very few that knew all 50 States & their Capitals, along with a lot of World Geography.

  79. I have to get these cereals and collect this stuff for my nephew

  82. Taylor Allen says:

    The Justice League, plus comics, plus cereal!? This is a total win for kiddos!

  83. It would be a nice thing to encourage children to read.

  84. My daughter is into superhero’s! It’s great that cereals are becoming involved again!

  85. christina moore says:

    My granddaughter loves superheroes, I think it is cool to get a comic book in their cereal box.

  86. Sandra VanHoey says:

    We love coffee at our house and this looks so easy to use. Praying to win this

  87. Wow!! How much more awesome could you be over there?! I look forward every morning to seeing what u gals are up to over there! Thank you so very much for making my mornings something to look ahead to!!

  88. tanya holland says:

    We love comics and superheroes in my house. My kids would love to have these comic books. They love any books.

  89. im excited to enter the contest and hope I win the keurig.

  90. claudia m says:

    What a great promotion ! superheroes and cereal are always welcome in our home :)

  91. Birdiebee says:

    I remember reading comic books as a kids constantly, primarily Archie. I haven’t seen too many comic books around anymore so glad to see that they are in the cereal boxes. I will have to look for them for my grandkids. Thank you for the article.

  92. Cass sudduth says:

    I remember growing up and us kids fighting over the surprise toy in cereal. This is so awesome that they are doing this and a book to boot! Great way to get kids to reading.

  93. Not very many put prizes in there cereal boxes any more. I remember when I was a kid we couldnt wait to open the boxes

  94. When we went to the store a few weeks back, we seen the comics in the cereal, my daughter had me buy several boxes, sad thing she got the same comic in each box. But she still loves the comnic book she got.

  95. Brenda Robinson says:

    Prizes in boxes make happy memories!

  96. I think kids would love the idea of getting a comic book in their cereal. Hopefully, it would encourage kids to read more, rather than play video games.

  97. Lisa Konieczke says:

    It is really cool of Big G to put in comic books. It’s far and few between these days that you get anything in a box of cereal anymore. I do think it’s even better to give a comic book. It encourages reading by making it fun and exciting. My Son loves the superheros. I agree that the superheros are something that kids can aspire to be.

  98. What a great promotion! This is a super-generous “prize” for a cereal. We love these cereals in our home anyway!

  99. You gotta love superheros and comics! Think of all of the movies that have come out in the last several years. I particularly enjoyed Captain America. :)

  100. Jara Christensen says:

    These are too cool! I’m always a nerd at heart :)

  101. I haven’t seen the cereal with the comic books yet. My husband will live this, he lives super heroes and cereal.

  102. I need to get this cereal for my son!

  103. Kyle Pierce says:

    My sons all read comic books and now…as is the family tradition, my grandsons have started reading and they love the comic books. Will be sure to get over to Target to purchase the General Mills Cereal for this opportunity. FUN!

  104. Sandra VanHoey says:

    My grandson always picked his cereal out by what was in or on the box. Guess I did the same as a child, it was fun and the kids would love a comic book

  105. My son would love this, we’re going to have to get some soon before the promotion is over.

  106. I love that they’re doing this! It gets the kids reading and my boys are big dc fans so its a win win!

  107. Brigid OHara Koshko says:

    As a teacher and a mom I love the idea of comic books instead of toys. I think it is a great way to encourage reading. Also, I believe books will be kept longer than a small toy that tend to get lost or my kids lose interest in playing with.

  108. Michelle S says:

    I think this is a super cute way to get kids interacting more in the morning.

  109. I looked for this at our Target and couldn’t find them, I’ll have to check the other nearby Target.

  110. Ashley Busse says:

    My oldest son would FLIP over this cereal! How cute!

  111. RICHARD HICKS says:

    I think the kids would really enjoy this cereal. I know they would get so excited about the prize in the box!

  112. Buddy Garrett says:

    This should be a hit with the kids. I think comics is a great way to get kids to read.

  113. tanya holland says:

    My girls love comic books and they love little things like this with cereal. This is a great idea.

  114. Beanybopp says:

    My husband is a nerd…oh sorry GEEK! Since there is a difference according to him lol He loves comics and Im sure he hopes that when our son gets old enough that he is going to love them also. I tried to read the walking dead comics and I just couldnt get into them like a regular book. Guess Im not geeky enough or something lol

  115. Jennifer Speed says:

    We have a lot of comics at home…My dad has kept in them in pristine condition. If my mom had anything to do with it she would sell them.

  116. Betsy Barnes says:

    How cool! I loved reading the back of cereal boxes growing up, very cool idea to get a comic book to read while enjoying breakfast :)

  117. My family is absolutely loving the latest campaign by Big G Cereal!

  118. my son loves General Mills cereal, and i love if they have books inside the box

  119. Sandy McFadden says:

    Our grandson’s love their General Mills cereal especially if they have super hero’s on the box.

  120. Holly Thomas says:

    Thank you, I wasn’t aware of this promotion.

  121. Laurie Nykaza says:
