The round blue bites bring a retro touch to the kitchen table.
Fans of the 80s sitcom, The Golden Girls, can now have breakfast with those four funny senior citizens!
While reruns of the show still air all the time, life just got a little sweeter for those who can't get enough of Dorothy, Rose, Blanche, and Sophia.
Thanks to Funko, a brand devoted to all things pop culture, there's a brand-new, limited-time breakfast cereal being sold exclusively at Target. As per Today Food, "A representative for Funko (said) that Target started selling the cereal on Sept. 30, with a price tag of $7.99 per box, and it's already been flying off the shelves (and pretty hard to find) at several locations." Eight bucks for a box of cereal isn't cheap, but when it comes to supply and demand, fans of the show and sugary cereal are willing to shell it out.
But is the cereal any good? The color, shape, and taste has been described as "a monochrome version of Fruit Loops, with thick 'Os' in a peculiar shade of blue." The box claims they're multigrain, so at least there's some nutritional value in every bowl. Inside each box comes a tiny toy – a miniature figurine that somewhat resembles Rose, the character so memorably played by the iconic Betty White.
It's been 25 years since the last episode of The Golden Girls premiered, but the love for the ladies and their kitchen table talks hasn't gone away. The folks at Funko may have had their hearts (or their wallets) in the right place when they came up with this kooky cereal, but perhaps they could have formulated a more fitting flavor. Doesn't everyone know that those grey-haired gals were crazy for cheesecake? Till then, head to Target to see if it's still stocked with The Golden Girls cereal. And don't forget to slurp up all that sweet blue milk at the bottom of your bowl!

Happy birthday to the world's biggest genre
On this day in 1973, Clive Campbell, the Jamaican-American "selector" known as DJ Kool Herc, hosted a "back to school jam" at 1520 Sedgewick Avenue in the Boogie Down Bronx of New York City.
Armed with a booming sound system and reggae beats, Herc– a shortened nickname for "Hercules"– commanded insatiable audiences across the South Bronx with his unique looping technique called the "Merry-Go Round." "[I knew that] they were waiting for this particular break," Herc later said, "and I got a couple of records that got the same break up in it. I wonder how it would be if I put them all together."

Raymond's popularity sheds light on a bizarre underside of the Animal Crossing fandom.
Raymond is a smug cat who highlights his heterochromatic eyes with hipster glasses.
He is essentially the same exact character as every other Animal Crossing villager with a "Smug" personality type, but again, and this is very important, Raymond is a cat with heterochromatic eyes and hipster glasses. As such, he has completely broken the Animal Crossing community.
