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?

    We love these cereals and the added freebie is a great bonus. If I can hide it from the kids, I could throw them in the Easter Baskets!

  2. JJ Caraway says

    Oh I will definitely have to get these for the grandchildren. They had so many cute things like this when my children were growing up but don’t see too many neat things anymore.

  3. says

    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!!

  4. angela higdon says

    And even better, General MIlls cereals have Box Tops! It is a major factor in my cereal buying decisions.

  5. Sandy Cain says

    Fellow geek here! Some things, like comic books, you never outgrow your love for – it’s part of your childhood that you just can’t give up! So cool to find a prize in the cereal box, like in the olden days!!

  6. Betty B. says

    I think it’s great that they’re doing this! Encourage the kids to read with their favorite super hero’s! Can’t wait to collect them all!

  7. Dorothy Boucher says

    i am glad that the these great cereals are getting into the comic zone, i know in my house hold we run around with capes loll

  8. BOBBI says

    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.

  9. 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!

  10. says

    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.

  11. saminder gumer says

    love the fact that they are promoting super heroes and have comics in the cereal. the kids would love this.

  12. Pamela Gurganus says

    This is so awesome! I loved the Justice League as a kid and my little ones love it too! I’ll be sure and look for these specially marked boxes of cereal! Thank you for the information! :)

  13. Linda Meyers-Gabbard says

    These remind me of when I was young and the Saturday morning cartoon about the Justice League. Also back in the day they had good prizes in the cereal boxes.

  14. Julie Wood says

    I like Comics and need to get these cereals and have them when I babysit my niece and nephew over Spring Break. They would love to have these for breakfast!

  15. Debbie Welchert says

    What a great combination. My grandchildren favorite cereal, Trix and Lucky Charms, and comics. You can’t go wrong with that. Not only can they read the cereal box but comics too! They are going to love it.

  16. Vennie M. says

    What kid doesn’t love getting a prize in the cereal box? I always loved it and I know my nephew and kids loved it, too. Actually they still do!

  17. Cynthia R says

    Great promotion and my kid loves comic books along with the cereal. I’m sure we will end up buying some boxes.

  18. Tammy S says

    This is so cool! I love anything that get’s the kids reading. My kids are huge comic book fans. Plus they love these cereals. So it’s a great deal for me.

  19. says

    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. :)

  20. 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.

  21. 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.

  22. Vanessa says

    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!!

  23. tanya holland says

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

  24. 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.

  25. 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.

  26. Jammie says

    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.

  27. Debbie says

    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.

  28. 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.

  29. Katy M says

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

  30. Lisa F. says

    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. :)

  31. Lisa G says

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

  32. 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!

  33. 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

  34. 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.

  35. 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!

  36. tanya holland says

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

  37. 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

  38. 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.

  39. 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 :)

  40. Sandy McFadden says

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