I think they're all coming out.  It's just figuring out who's gay, bi, queer, lesbian, trans, nonbinary, etc.  We should run a contest to see if anyone can correctly assign sexuality, gender, preference, etc. to everyone on the box.  Winner gets to buy a box and eat it for us.

Umm, those are basically just smushed Froot Loops. But cool, thanks, I guess.

Tony the Tiger has always been pretty obvious. Snap, Crackle, and Pop are three twinks who are explicitly not brothers yet live together and have never been seen with women. Toucan Sam spends all his time chasing after fruit. Then there's the frog who's addicted to Honey Smacks, and I don't really think I need to say more than "Honey Smacks," because I'm sure I've seen that drag queen's act. And of course, there's the brightly colored strutting cock.

No, none of them needed to come out. It's the left side that's throwing me. CinnaMon and Bad Apple are a cinnamon stick and an apple. And I don't think the frosted mini-wheats mascot even has a name, it's just a frosted mini-wheat. Can they even have sexual orientation or gender identity? Like, Toucan Sam is a male-identified toucan who chooses to bump cloacas with other males. The mini-wheat is a mini-wheat. I guess that side is for all the A-s in the spectrum?

Countdown to religous nutbags freaking out over this...

Countdown to the "woke" being upset about this for other reasons...

Countdown to the Kellogg's worldwide marketing exec being fired for blowing the marketing budget on media placement in Pakistan...

Is this a thing that needs to be a thing?  I feel that using these mascots to focus on sexuality is somehow not a great fit.

Now, I admit to not thinking about homosexuals when I was a kid watching cereal commercials or eating cereal, but I wasn't thinking about any sexuality either, even my own!  When I read BLONDIE I might think about the idea that a man and a woman got married, and maybe I would in the future, but those thoughts were never associated with cereal mascots.

Really, is there a substantial view that I'm not getting where it comes to sexual awakening and cereal mascots?  And I'm not talking about Rule 43, either.  Aren't these characters just about as chaste as possible?  Aren't they all single, and never presented as going on dates or having relationships?  Isn't this a character trait that's completely irrelevant to their existence?
