When starting this blog I had no idea that so much attention would be paid to cereal restaurants, but obviously this is where much cereal innovation is taking place right now.
Case in point: The Cereal Bowl restaurant is introducing cereal flavored frozen yogurt, called "Freeze N' Flakes" to its menu. Customers will have the choice of up to eight cereal (such as Coco Puffs and Lucky Charms) and topping choices in a soft serve vanilla yogurt.

Cereal restaurant, Cereality, is involved in its own form of creative marketing, now as part of a joint venture with Dodge. They have created a "Cereal Sprinter", a customized van that is not only a moving billboard but also a mobile cereal restaurant stand.

Copying the Cereality cereal restaurant concept is nothing new, and is part of the growth of this emerging trend. But, it's not enough to be a copycat. A successful competitor will need to distinguish themselves.
The Surreal Bowl may be the first creative alternative in this increasingly crowded market. Located in St. Petersburg, Florida it appears to have an almost cartoon look and feel, and specializes in sugared cereals. (See articles at Slashfood and The Tampa Tribune for more information).
It will be interesting to see how it catches on.

You may have wondered if I'm still around. The answer is YES! It's just that I took a much needed vacation recently. Now that I'm back we can get back to more Cereal Bowl action!
The St. Petersburg Times reports that a man had a car wreck because of being distracted by eating Frosted Flakes while he was driving.
