Kellogg's Hilarious New Cereal Is Totally Amazing

totes amazeballsNaming a cereal seems really fun -- you can sort of let your imagination run wild. I mean, if they got away with names like Sugar Corn-fetti, Sir Grapefellow, and Tutti Frutti Flavored Twinkles, pretty much anything is a possibility. So when Tim Burgess of the hot British pop group the Charlatans tweeted that he'd like to name a cereal after this amazing phrase he'd heard, his request didn't fall on deaf ears. Kellogg's jumped on it and not only created an illustration of a cereal box with the name he'd chosen, but they went so far as to fashion a real one up and send it to his house. I guess that's what happens when you're a rock star. Tim's so lucky. Check out his hilarious cereal creation:

Kellogg's Totes Amazeballs. Has a nice ring to it, doesn't it?

Here's how it all went down. Tim jokingly tweeted at Kellogg's that he'd come up with a great cereal name: Totes Amazeballs. To everyone's surprise the company jumped on it and within a few hours had created something really quite special.

The flavor, in case you're wondering, is a mix of Coco Pops Rocks, marshmallows, shortbread pieces, and raisins. Mmm. Breakfast of champions.

I'm sure Kellogg's didn't anticipate how much attention they'd get for this, but apparently, the Twitter requests have been pouring in from fans who want their own box of Totes Amazeballs. And frankly, I don't blame them. I want a box, too, if only for the 9 a.m. sugar high and the looks from my co-workers when I told them to leggo my Totes Amazeballs. Because obviously, I wouldn't share.

What do you think of the surreal cereal?
