Cereal Killer Cafe
Dining out, now featuring Fruit Loops.
As well as being an excellent Halloween costume idea, Cereal Killer is now a cafe opening this December in the UK with only cereal on the menu. What started life as a failed crowd-funding project has eventuated into a real-life premises in Shoreditch, that claims to be the 'world's first speciality Cereal Cafe' (although a quick Google turns out a US chain called Cereality - the first in the UK, at least then).
They're inviting customers to pop into the store and make up their bowl from a selection of over 100 different types of cereal from around the world, as well as 12 different varieties of milk and 20 different toppings, and 18 different types of Pop Tarts (do 18 types of Pop Tarts even exist!?) IQS nightmares abound in the possibilities - will Lucky Charms with Strawberry Milk taste good? Or could you go double rainbow with Poppin Pebbles with a Rainbow Cookie Sandwich Pop Tart?
The cafe's going full throttle childhood nostalgia, displaying different vintage cereal boxes and cereal toy memorabilia from the 80s and 90s in the cafe, and the cafe design looks like the set of a children's' TV show. Behind the counter are identical twin owners Alan and Gary Keery, who will be serving you bowls not just for breakfast, but for lunch, or dinner - just like when you were a fussy kid and would only eat cereal for dinner, or a struggling uni student substituting Fruit Loops for proper meals (slash non-struggling 30 year old... not judging). Keep on it via their website.
On the subject of cereal nostalgia, these Australian Coco Pops TV ads from the '80s are way trippier now than they were when we were kids:
