You might think I’m pulling your leggo, but it’s for real. Breakfast cereal manufacturing giant Kellogg’s is about to roll out a cereal for the LGBTQ community. The name of the product is “All Together,” with the word together appearing in a rainbow of hues.
True to its name, the product is a blend of corn flakes, Frosted Flakes, Froot Loops, Rice Krispies, raisin bran, and Frosted Mini-Wheats — all the makings of a nutritious breakfast. Seriously, though, aren’t gays (perhaps the largest group the cereal targets) particular about what they eat? Are they willing to stuff this dreck into their pie holes just to make a statement of solidarity with their fellow sexually oppressed Americans?
An equally trenchant question is whether they are willing to plunk down $19.99 for a box of the special-edition mix. Then again they may be since the company announced it will be making a $50,000 donation to LGBT+ advocacy charity GLAAD. Yeah, GLAAD’s not extremist or anything.
While the LGBT website PinkNews is tickled pink over the announcement, headlining its article on the product “Kellogg’s is launching an LGBT-themed cereal so you can start your day with maximum gay,” not all is well in social media land. While some have applauded the gesture, other regular Kellogg’s customers are raining on its parade. Some examples:
Thank you for helping me decide to buy the bagged cereal.

?I’m disappointed in our favorite cereal brand. We will be choosing a new one. My elementary kid’s cereal should not be a LGBT conversation starter. Done.

So @KelloggsUS is taking a stand against bullying, by promoting a group that bully’s as much or more than anyone?? Idiotic!! Not a bigger group of force our lifestyle into your face and if you question it, than your a bigot group than the LBGTQ crowd!!

Well, you can’t please everyone, I suppose. The guy in the following video, who scored a package of “All Together” during the test phase, is pleased as punch, however.
