Post is handing out free samples of its cookie-themed cereals at a pop-up event through Saturday.
If you're a child of the '90s (or anyone who likes cookies or cereal, for that matter) you were surely delighted by the news last year that Oreo O's would be making a comeback. Not only that, Post, the company behind the cereal, also released a S'mores cereal at the same time, featuring Honey Maid graham cracker bits along with chocolate puffs and marshmallows. Yes, from French Toast Crunch to Waffle Crisp, it's clear there's nothing the public wants more than cereals that are shaped and flavored like other foods.
To that end, Post also graced us with a couple new cookie-inspired cereals earlier this year. Chips Ahoy! and Nutter Butter cookies were turned into tiny bite-sized versions of themselves, meant to be enjoyed with a splash of milk (though totally snackable on their own anyway).
To celebrate the full slate of sweets-like cereals and to give people like you a chance to try out the flavors before committing to buying a whole box (and they do come in rather large boxes), Post has set up a pop-up event in one of the highest-traffic spots in New York City: Grand Central Terminal.
Located in Vanderbilt Hall, "It's Not a Dream..." reimagines the space as a giant breakfast table featuring a quartet of interactive, Instagrammable experiences offering passersby some fun photo ops as well as free samples of Oreo O's, Honey Maid S'Mores Cereal, Nutter Butter, and Chips Ahoy! cereals, and the ability to order a box (or twelve) from a kiosk connected to Walmart.com.
Among the interactive sections are a surfboard you can ride on a wave of milk and cookies, a multi-camera set-up to capture multiple angles of you enjoying S'mores cereal, and, yes, a bowl of plush, Oreo O's-shaped pillows that you can slip into and live out your ultimate breakfast fantasy.
The pop-up event is open to the public from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. today, February 16, and from 10:00 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, February 17. If you miss out on this experience, don't worry, you can still try these cereals for yourself. All four cereals are available in grocery stores nationwide, and a representative from Post tells us that, unlike so many good things these days, Oreo O's, Money Maid S'mores, Nutter Butter, and Chips Ahoy! cereals are not here for a limited time, so you can continue to expect them on store shelves nationwide.
