‘Hocus Pocus 2’ Cereal Is Coming Soon to Bewitch Your Breakfast

As legendary witch Winifred Sanderson once said, “Oh, look. Another glorious morning … makes me sick!” And I feel you, Winnie, I really do. But I think I’d feel a whole lot better about mornings in general if I could just get my hands on a box of the Hocus Pocus 2 cereal. The fruity cereal is an ode to the upcoming sequel to iconic Halloween movie Hocus Pocus, and it’s coming to a store near you later this month.

So, what’s so bewitching about this new Hocus Pocus 2 cereal?

Well as I understand it, this stuff seems a lot like Froot Loops or Trix, consisting of “berry brew-flavored purple, orange, and yellow star-shaped pieces topped with green and purple flecks that represent the Sanderson Sisters’ robes.” I guess the main draw of these spooky, fruity breakfast puffs is that they serve as a reminder that: It is fall (the spookiest of seasons), Hocus Pocus 2 is coming to theaters on September 30 (hooray!), and you are never too old to eat fake fruit-flavored cereal. I’m sold! 

I haven’t had a colorful cereal in years and if I’m going to buy one now as a working adult it may as well be Hocus Pocus 2 cereal, inspired by the three most iconic women in Disney Halloween history: Winifred, Sarah, and Mary Sanderson. Now you may be wondering, why are they creating a kids’ cereal based on the sequel of a movie that came out in 1993, since all the original fans are now grown up? Well, have you ever seen a classic movie that came out before you were born? The answer is probably yes. People born in the ’80s, ’90s, ’00s, and ’10s can all agree that Hocus Pocus is a Halloween staple for the ages.

As the Director of Brand Marketing at Kellogg’s pointed out, “Disney’s Hocus Pocus has been a part of family Halloween traditions for years,” and now with the sequel finally coming out, “families can celebrate spooky season alongside the Sanderson Sisters as they return on Disney+ this fall.” I’m perhaps a little too excited for my fall breakfasts to have a distinct Hocus Pocus focus, but hey, I have to try this stuff. Wouldn’t want to be a “maggoty malfeasance,” now, would I?
