MINNEAPOLIS, MN — Cinnamon Toast Crunch surprised fans earlier this summer with a limited-time launch of the all new CinnaFuego Toast Crunch—a sweet and spicy cereal snack that blasted the brand into “hot” culture. The spicy twist on the cinnamon cereal everyone loves set the snacking game aflame, and now Cinnamon Toast Crunch is bringing the product to retail shelves nationwide so everyone can spice up snack time. 

In celebration of the expanded product drop, CinnaFuego is turning up the heat, absurdity and laughs with the #FeelTheFuego prank. It’s easy to join the fun: Simply pour a bowl of CinnaFuego Toast Crunch disguised as a classic bowl of Cinnamon Toast Crunch for family or friends, film their hilarious reactions to the prank, and post it to social media using the hashtag #FeelTheFuego.

“As CinnaFuego hits stores this fall, we wanted to make it easy for families to get in on the challenge,” said Mindy Murray, Sr. Marketing Communications Manager at General Mills. “So, we created limited-edition CinnaFuego #FeelTheFuego Challenge Packs with all the necessities to prank an unexpecting snacker. We can’t wait to see how participants get creative and have some laughs when enjoying the hottest new cereal!”

CinnaFuego Challenge Packs include a pouch of CinnaFuego, along with a pouch of Cinnamon Toast Crunch, to help you surprise a family member or friend with the fiery snack in disguise; a PopSocket to help you catch their reaction on film; and a badge of honor for those who complete the #FeelTheFuego challenge. The CinnaFuego Challenge Packs are available at cinnamontoastcrunch.com for $9.99, while supplies last.
