* Since the Goodkind family owns so much in the Literature/WhateleyUniverse, it's no surprise that Overclock's favorite cereal is Honey Nut Goodios. He's a bit obsessive about them. In "Ayla and the Great Shoulder angel Conspiracy" he decides to drive a girl insane and kill all of her friends because [[DisproportionateRetribution she ate the last of the Honey nut Goodios in the school cafeteria]].

* One [[Comics/{{Garfield}} Professor Garfield]] skit features Nermal getting addicted to "Sugar Coated Sugar Blasts," courtesy of a deliberately misleading commercial about its supposed benefits hosted by so-called [[XtremeKoolLetterz "Kool Kat Karl"]] (really the resident dogs in costume).
** Garfield himself spazzes out on chocolate-covered coffee beans in one strip.
*** [[PublicServiceAnnouncement Both chocolate and coffee are poisonous to cats]].

* In the ''WesternAnimation/CodenameKidsNextDoor'' episode "Operation: M.U.N.C.H.I.E.S.", Sector V has to fight nearly every villain in the show over a store's last box of Rainbow Munchies, a cereal like this that is so delicious that ''everyone'', good guys and bad guys alike, love it. Knightbrace proves to be the only exception, buying it simply so he can destroy it, which causes everyone else to have an EnemyMine to take it back and share.

** Spoofed with the "Cheat Commandos...Os" Sugar Cereal, which includes an advertisement where the word 'nutritious' is crossed out and replaced with 'delicious', and is eventually described as a 'ridiculous brekafast'.

** In the WebAnimation/StrongBadEmail "specially marked", Strong Bad explicitly points out several traits associated with kid cereals, like having names with sound effects in them (like 'pop', 'smack', 'puff', and [[BreadEggsMilkSquick 'gunshots in a crowded mall']]) and offering a FreePrizeAtTheBottom if you're lucky.

* ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 3}}'''s kid cereal is called "Sugar Bombs", whose pieces are shaped like miniature nukes. A ghoul will buy them off you since they can apparently be used to double the potency of a particular drug (useful for ghouls who are much more resistant to them).

* Of course, this Trope is TruthInTelevision to a point (the "point" in question being [[ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill as much as 63% sugar by weight]] in the case of Kellogg's Smacks), and as [[http://www.buzzfeed.com/briangalindo/25-cereals-from-the-80s-you-will-never-eat-again this article shows]], such stuff used to be a ''lot'' more popular. In fact, up until the 1980s, it was a general rule for most children-marketed cereals to be named "Sugar X". It was only after the rise in rates of childhood obesity and the backlash from a more health-conscious public that many brands dropped "sugar" from their names (i.e, "Sugar Pops" became "Corn Pops", "Sugar Crisp" became "Golden Crisp", "Sugar Frosted Flakes" became simply "Frosted Flakes"/"Frosties", and "Sugar Puffs" became "Honey Monster Puffs").

There is a definite, if somewhat dated, TruthInTelevision to this trope, as kids have a natural disposition towards sweets (which sugar definitely qualifies), and presweetened cereals quickly became popular when they were first introduced -- ''with sugar as their selling point'', beginning with 1949's Sugar Crisp, and continuing with Sugar Corn Pops, Sugar Frosted Flakes, Sugar Smacks, Sugar Smiles, and Sugar Jets.[[note]]This avoided the need to add sugar yourself, possibly over-sugaring it. In 1978 an American dentist tested 78 different brands of cereal. Eleven had a sugar content of 50% or more. Super Orange Crisp was 70.8 percent sugar.[[/note]] More recent concerns about healthy eating have reduced the number of such cereals, though said reduction has done absolutely nothing to reduce childhood obesity, which has actually gotten even worse. Modern kid cereals may still make popping noises or turn the milk chocolate, sport kid-friendly mascots in neon colors standing proudly under explosive wordplay, and sugar may still appear high on their list of ingredients, but the cereal itself is intentionally designed with a respectable portion of vitamins and minerals, comparable to many adult cereals; in fact, sometimes a given kid-friendly cereal can be ''more'' healthy than an adult cereal (though to be fair, there are extremes both ways - and virtually all cereals are fortified with extra vitamins and minerals above and beyond the ordinary ingredients).

* In ''WesternAnimation/TheCritic'', there's a Barney knock-off character that has a cereal. Apparently it can turn your piss pink (after you eat six bowls of it, of course).
