MacKinnon Krunch on shelves soon

MacKinnon Krunch

Hat tip to Avs fan Eric Gustavson for posting the first picture of this new cereal on the Colorado King Soopers market: MacKinnon Krunch. In the tradition of some locally sponsored Avs supermarket produce such as Deadmarsh Deli Dills, of which I think I still have an unopened jar somewhere in the basement, though I think think the “best used by” mark expired about 23 years ago…

Here it is: MacKinnon Krunch:

So here’s the deal on this cereal: it’s only going to be out in limited quantities, and only available, at least for now, at local King Soopers stores in Colorado. There is supposed to be a press release announcing the product, on Wednesday. Either that day or Wednesday, you can go to any King Soopers in the state, I’m told, and be able to get a box.

But you better get there fast. Again, these are limited quantities. If my Twitter DMs are any barometer, demand for these are high. Out-of-state Avs fans better butter up your Colorado friends to buy you a box and ship it off.

I’ll do my best to get some boxes and raffle them off to loyal Colorado Hockey Now subscribers. That’s IF I can get my hands on some. These things figure to go like hotcakes.

Of course, MacKinnon got hurt a couple days before these were going to come out. But hey, more time for in-store promotion, I suppose.

That has to be the worst-looking cereal box graphic design I have ever seen. Bummer that’s such a fun product would look so much like a teenager made it.

I’d argue it looks more like a boomer made it than a teenager haha

[…] Originally, MacKinnon was slated to do a couple of appearances at different stores to promote the cereal, which are frosted flakes but with a solid “krunch” to them, but then the pandemic hit and things were delayed all the way until early this month. That delay doesn’t seem to have dimmed sales of the cereal. Though exact numbers aren’t yet available, MacKinnon Krunch has sold briskly. […]
