Sour Patch Kids Cereal Is the Most Weirdly Wonderful Way to Start Your Day

As a kid, it felt like I spent every day begging for sweets and candy for breakfast, and as an adult who works from home, avoiding my secret stash of “good” chocolate in the mornings in favor of oatmeal is a daily struggle.

Well, there’s a new way for us all, ages 1 to 100, to get our candy fix first thing in the morning: Sour Patch Kids cereal.

According to Delish, starting Dec. 26, you’ll be able to buy a box of the stuff for about $4 at Walmart before it’s released to other major retailers later in 2019. What better way to beat the post-Christmas blues than by munching on what’s essentially a bowl of carby candy the day after you open presents?

It could be delicious in things like marshmallow cereal treats though!
