I saw a small sized box today with a 9 card panel on the back. I held off buying hoping to find a larger size box. I didn't find anything on their sight about it so it's possible more than one panel. Sorry for so little info but's time for weekend shopping so maybe someone else can learn more

Thanks for the Heads-Up. I'll check around Rhode Island, which is never hard to do.

Has anyone seen these yet? I've been looking but haven't found them yet. If someone could post a picture, that would be appreciated, so we can see what we need to look for! Thanks!

Geoff,

Nope, I have not seen these cards on the Rice Krispies cereal, yet.
I've checked in every store I go in. From Target, Walmart, Stop & Shops, Shaw's market, and any other store that carries cereal.

Thanks for posting. Now I know what to look for.

Odd shaped cards with no perforations for cutting {I think I may have pocket pages for these cards though?}.

Is anyone going to collect these ?

I believe this is a one shot. The web site http://kelloggs.com/teamusa has stories about only the athletes on this box. There is apparently printing on the back, I'll add a scan when I open it up. The cards if cut would measure 2 3/8" x 2 3/4".

Tks for posting and would you tell us the store where you bought them?

Will probably get a box if I see them when I'm out. I just flatten the box and keep it intact with the other cereal boxes I have so the odd card shape doesn't matter to me.

I found and purchased a box yesterday at my local Stop & Shop grocery store.

My wife will most likely make those Rice Krispies marshmallow treats out of the cereal. Yummo. LOL

Just got back from shopping. This not just Rice Crispies. I saw these on Frosted Flakes & Fruit Loops. They are on different sized boxes but the card size is the same no matter the size of the box. There is nothing on the front of the boxes to indicate there are cards on the back (just like the Rice Crispies)

I had been looking for these, found a bunch at WalMart. As noted, nothing on the front, but I saw a display from the back and found a large box.

Now, anyone want to drop by for Froot Loops?

Kelloggs also created "2012 Team USA" cereal and those boxes have the cards on the back as well. Boxes were $2.50 at Giant Eagle. There had their own display near the cereal aisle.
