Bob Ross cereal is the calming breakfast we need

FYE’s Bob Ross: The Joy of Cereal retails for $9.99, and encourages consumers to “Just eat, relax & watch it happen!”

The beauty of Bob Ross, the painter with the curly afro and gentle voice, was how calm he left us feeling after an episode of his “The Joy of Painting.”

Now you can start your day with a bit of that calm thanks to FYE’s Bob Ross: The Joy of Cereal.

According to Food & Wine, the cereal is made up of toasted oat and colored marshmallow pieces — yeah, just like a box of Lucky Charms. In the Bob Ross version, the marshmallow shapes are trees, mountains, stars, hearts, cabins, bushes, and — no kidding— “happy little accidents.”


The 11½-ounce box will set you back $9.99. With 9 servings per box, the cereal is about 120 calories per serving, with 1.5 grams of fat and 32 grams of carbs.

Even though Ross died in 1995, he’s just about as popular today as he ever was in the 1980s and ’90s.

Cereal isn’t the only Bob Ross edible item FYE offers. There’s also Bob Ross Positive Energy Drink ($3.99), Bob Ross Happy Little Tree Mints ($3.99), and even a Bob Ross Marshmallow Canvas ($15.99). Yep, that last one is an edible canvas that comes with an edible paints pallet.

It’s certainly more delicious than the Bob Ross Chia pet.

And just in case you need a calming dose of Bob Ross, here ya go:

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
