General Mills Brings Minions Buddies in your Cereal Box for their Big Summer Movie Premiere

Big G_Minions Buddies

Just in time for their new movie to take the summer box office, General Mills has teamed up with the Minions to offer exclusive Minions Buddies in every specially marked box of General Mills cereals!


General Mills is once again connecting fans with what they love. Hidden inside each box, you will find one of six select Minions Buddies about to hit the big screen.


Minions and cereal fans alike can collect all six Buddies in each participating brand of General Mills cereals, including Honey Nut Cheerios, Banana Nut Cheerios, Cinnamon Toast Crunch, Reese’s Puffs, Trix and Golden Grahams.  The specially marked boxes of Big G cereals hit store shelves this month, for a limited time only. General Mills has additionally released specially marked packing of participating Betty Crocker fruit flavored snacks, including Fruit Roll-Ups, Fruit by the Foot and Gushers.


I received a wonderful package from our friends at General Mills that included a Box of Reese’s Puffs, Fruit By The Foot, a really cute Minion Buddy and a Fandango gift card to go see the new movie. We can’t wait to see the movie!! My son loves the Fruit by the foot with the Minion Comics on every roll.  I think I will keep the Little Minion Buddy for myself!

We have teamed up for a Giveaway to celebrate the movie coming out later this week! One winner will win the same package I received ( a participating General Mills cereal, a box of a participating Betty Crocker fruit flavored snack, an exclusive Minions Buddy and a $25 Fandango gift card to see the film in theatres this month.)To enter, leave a comment below telling us your favorite General Mills cereal and your favorite Minion’s name!

  6. We love Cheerios; they are always in our house (all of the flavor variations too). As for Minion names it’s funny that you ask that question just that way.
