Welcome To Taste of States a place where we celebrate the weird and wonderful food of the United States of America. This can be everything from the snacks that are available for a limited time to the foods that are classic traditions at events such as Christmas and Thanksgiving! Each week we will explore the facts and the history surrounding a different food.


If tthere is one way to get kids to eat breakfast then it is too make it cartoon character themed. In the early noughties Kellogs teamed up with Disney to introduce the world to Chocolate Mud and Bugs.

In 2003, the world was introduced to a Lion King themed cereal and featured Timon and Pumbaa on the front. Each cereal originally came with a DVD that had a preview of films such as Toy Story, Lilo and Stitch or Monsters Inc.

The ccereal itself was very similar to cocoa puffs the only difference was that it came with marshmallows shaped as bugs. The main ingredients were yellow cornmeal and sugar.
