Kellogg's Retro Lip Balms Ideal For Cereal Kissers


Tired of lip balms with good taste? Japan has lip balms that taste good! A collaborative venture between American breakfast cereal icon Kellogg's and Japanese online retail design house Nut2Deco has brought forth a series of cereal-flavored lip balms.



The lip balms feature retro-style artwork from classic Kellogg's cereal faves such as Corn Flakes and Frosted Flakes in 550 yen ($6) mini boxes, and Froot Loops, Cocoa Krispies, Sugar Pops and a different retro Frosted Flakes design in 450 yen ($5) sticks.

On the inside, the balms are flavored to match - testers liken the tastes and fragrances to that of sweet milk and corn in the case of Corn Flakes. The color of the balm may be tinted slightly to match the brand; pink in the case of Froot Loops and brown for Cocoa Krispies to name two.

The cereal lip balms are made in Taiwan and the retro theme seems to be for Japan only at the moment. As well, Frosted Flakes comes in two different versions due to 2010 being the Year Of The Tiger according to Chinese mythology. Grrreat!! (via Excite Japan)
