In a hectic world that's always on the go, Bob Ross is a symbol of gentle, much-needed calmness. The painter and television host had the ability to help everyone—no matter their artistic prowess—to see creativity within themselves by giving them the confidence to put brush to canvas. Ross passed away more than two decades ago, but his kind demeanor lives on, thanks in part to items like the tasty (and totally edible) Bob Ross: The Joy of Cereal.
The Joy of Cereal is the painter’s version of Lucky Charms. It has rings of toasted oats and tiny colorful marshmallows that take the shape of motifs commonly found in a Ross painting. Munch on spoonfuls of Almighty Mountains, Lovely Little Brushes, and even Happy Little Accidents as they float in milk.
Whether you eat the cereal or not, you’ll want to keep the box regardless. The front of the packaging features an iconic portrait of Ross with his paintbrush in hand and a tranquil landscape scene behind him. On the back of the cereal box is where you’ll find bits of wisdom that you can digest for the rest of the day. Calling it the “Positivity Paint Palette,” there are seven quotes from Ross arranged on blobs of paint around a palette. It’s intended for you to cut out and keep for nourishing inspiration.
Bob Ross: The Joy of Cereal is now available through the F.Y.E online store. And while you’re enjoying it for breakfast, pair it with this special “self painting” mug dedicated to Ross. As you pour in hot liquid, his Happy Trees appear!
