The Championship: Tony the Tiger vs. Sonny from Cocoa Puffs
Sure, Wheaties may be the breakfast of champions, but cereals packed with sugar are the breakfast, lunch, and dinner of people who sit around watching those champions play college basketball. Plus, the cartoon characters who grace their boxes are way cooler than Bruce Jenner, which is exactly why you're gonna want to vote in Thrillist's first-ever Cereal Mascot Madness
Using a selection committee made up of the foremost authorities on cartoons who endorse breakfast foods that taste better than bananas, CMM pitted 16 of the country's, nay, the world's most epic spokestoons against each other in a seeded NCAA Tournament-style bracket.
