Snackimals Cereals are available in two lip-smacking flavors: Vanilla Blast and Cinnamon Crunch. Kids and parents alike have long enjoyed the goodness of Snackimals Cookies and today the same great taste comes to the cereal aisle, available now at major retail grocery stores, Whole Foods and other natural stores nationwide.

“Snackimals Cereals are the first cereals for children in the natural aisle to come in fun animal shapes. They’re organic, Non-GMO verified, loaded with whole grains – and they’ve been taste-tested with kids, so we know that the flavors are kid-approved,” said Federico Meade, Barbara’s Vice President of Marketing. “Snackimals Cereals join a robust line of Barbara’s cereals and snacks that are delicious and wholesome. With only 7 grams of sugar per serving of Snackimals Cereal and 8 grams of whole grains, parents can feel good about what’s in their kids’ cereal bowls.”

In keeping with Barbara’s commitment to provide great-tasting, wholesome products, Snackimals Cereals were consumer tested with kids and parents for flavor appeal and are an excellent balance of taste and great nutrition. Parents will love that Snackimals Cereals are:

  • USDA Organic

  • A source of whole grains – contain 8 grams of whole grains per serving

Snackimals Cereals were inspired by the longtime Barbara’s favorite, Snackimals Cookies, which are made with organic grain and the highest quality ingredients.
