The Emmy Award-winning “Golden Girls” sitcom, featuring the adventures of four feisty older women, ran for seven seasons starting in the mid-1980s. More than 30 years later, the show is still airing on cable TV and its still-growing fan base spans the generations.
Maybe that’s part of the reason Funko, known for its pop culture-themed products, just debuted a limited-edition “Golden Girls”-inspired tribute cereal.
The cereal just hit store shelves at select Target stores late last month, and it is already hard to find.
The multigrain cereal, based on the characters of Dorothy, Blanche, Rose and Sophia, is basically a monochrome version of Fruit Loops, with thick O’s in an unusual shade of blue, according to Parenting.com, and goes for an expensive $7.99 a box, if you can find it.
Just one of the Golden Girls is still alive. Actress Betty White has outlived her co-stars by years, and at 96, she is still going strong in Hollywood.
