There's a General Mills Cereal Shortage Thanks to 'Pokémon TCG' Scalpers
The Pokémon TCG frenzy has now moved from fast food to breakfast creal.
As part of Pokémon‘s 25th-anniversary celebration, a total of 14 Pokémon cards were packaged into various General Mills cereals like Cinnamon Toast Crunch, Lucky Charms, Trix, and Cocoa Puffs. With the number of card scalpers, not even children’s cereal is safe as it has been reported that a number of stores like Walmart have experienced customers buying up pallets of cereal only for the cards, or worse, opening the boxes right inside the store and stealing the cards. In some instances, stores are combating the theft of cereal with the use of spider security wrap devices.
