Original 1980's box.

Pac-Man was a cereal brand that was sold in the early 1980's, based on the classic arcade game of the same name, made by General Mills. The cereal includes corn puffs and marshmallows shaped like Pac-Man, Ms. Pac-ManBlinky, Pinky, Inky and Clyde. Later versions also had bigger Pac-Man marshmallows (aka Super Pac-Man marshmallows).

It appears it was first introduced in the U.S. in 1983, and stopped production around 1988. The cereal may have lasted slightly longer in other countries.

2018 box.

In 2018, exclusively sold at GameStop, a Pac-Man cereal was released (no relation to the original). It includes a mini Funko POP figure in the box. The cereal itself is completely different - it is lemon-flavored, and lacks marshmallows.

Trivia

  • A Donkey Kong cereal was released a few months before Pac-Man cereal, made by General Mills competitor Ralston. It is believed the Pac-Man cereal was created to compete with the D.K. one, and in the end it was the more successful product.
