A bowl full of surprises planned throughout the year
LAKEVILLE, Minn., Dec. 15, 2020 – Inspired by the imaginative fun of the iconic TV show, “The Flintstones,” PEBBLES™ cereal became the first-ever brand created around a media character when it was born in 1971. To celebrate its 50th birthday in 2021, PEBBLES cereal will surprise fans by giving them presents throughout the year.
“Fruity and Cocoa PEBBLES cereals have been bringing kids and kids-at-heart fun and happiness for 50 years. At a time when joy and inspiration are needed more than ever, we wanted to do something to thank and surprise PEBBLES fans next year in honor of the brand’s milestone birthday,” said Amy Brothers, PEBBLES Cereal Brand Manager at Post Consumer Brands. “This brand has always been about igniting creativity, so we hope our fans will join us and get inspired as we Yabba Dabba Doo!™ 2021!”
From the time the first bowl of PEBBLES cereal was poured in 1971 to today, the brand has captured hearts and minds, growing in the process to become the top kids cereal brand, with more than 1.4 billion bowls eaten annually.
