If you’re a fan of The Golden Girls, the much-beloved late ‘80s early ‘90s TV sitcom about four silver-haired ladies living together in Miami, then you may be delighted to know that it now has its own limited-edition blueberry-flavored multigrain cereal. It even comes with a toy inside of the box: a Funko figurine of one of the Golden Girls.
While the show went off the air 25 years ago, it lives on in streaming and syndication with legions of devoted gay fans who are also known to snatch up Golden Girls-themed swag, like bootleg t-shirts, cookbooks and now this cereal.
And while you might be tempted to tear it open and start chomping down on some of its crunchy blueberry goodness, you might want to hold onto it as we imagine an unopened box could become a valuable super-fan collector’s item in the future.
Target is selling a complete set of plastic Funko Golden Girls figurines with Sophia, Rose, Blanche and Dorothy all available in five-inch-tall glory.
Granted, this isn’t the first bit of Golden Girls swag and it won’t be the last. There have also been Golden Girls-themed a Clue board game where players try to figure out who ate the last piece of cheesecake, a Golden Girls dollhouse, Golden Girls lingerie, a hand-painted set of Golden Girls Russian nesting dolls and even an attempt to make a Golden Girls LEGO play set.
Now all you gotta do is invite your bestie over for some Golden Girls-themed playtime and, of course, bring out the cheesecake.
