“Golden Girls” fans are now scrambling to find a box of FunkO’s, a limited-edition tribute cereal that’s available exclusively at select Target stores across the country.
Funko announced their new line of cereals, FunkO’s, back in July 2018.
“Inspiring fans to connect with their favorite pop culture moments in a novel and delicious way, the new cereals continue the Funko tradition of developing collectible products with fun and whimsical designs. Each cereal box will include a corresponding miniature Pocket Pop! figure and the back panel will feature additional themed activities, puzzles and games. Each variety sells for a suggested retail price of $7.99 per box.”
The Golden Girls FunkO’s multigrain cereal is blue – not golden – and features a somewhat angry Blanche, Rose, Dorothy and Sophia on the front of the box.
Like many, we unfortunately were not able to snag our own box of “Golden Girls” at our own local Target in Houston, Texas; however, we do want to thank the staff for their dedication and time in helping us search for the now hard-to-find box.
But no need to worry. For the more desperate fan, you can still purchase a box at some Target stores – or even online for $99.99 at ToyWhiz. Yeah seriously.
A representative for Funko told TODAY that once the cereal runs out in stores there are no plans “as of now” for it to return
Well… we may just have to skip the cereal this time (I’m gluten free anyway), watch a few re-runs, and cuddle up next to our FunkO Golden Girls Collectors set instead.
Have you seen or tried the new cereal? How much would you pay to try the latest Golden Girl craze – $8? $99? more? Let us know in the comments below!
