In 1969, Fruity pebbles were introduced to the world and with it the box’s cover has gone through many changes, but what has never changed is the characters on the boxes. Fred Flintstone has always been on the cover of the box. With every changing year, the mascot for the cereal has stayed the same but it seems that in 2013, all that is changing for a short period of time. It will change to reflect WWE.

In conjunction with WWE, Post Foods have produced Fruity Pebbles and Coco Pebbles with a new face on the box. WWE superstar John Cena. This change is not permanent however, because this will be a limited time running of the Cover Change. This promotional, limited time offer is to help promote WWE’s biggest Pay-Per-View: WrestleMania.

The grand prize is 4 tickets to this year’s pay-per-view with airfare and hotel included, the chance to meet John Cena, and attend the Rockin VIP after party.

“It's been a lifelong dream to be on a cereal box and I'm proud to represent WWE as part of our partnership with Post," Cena said in a statement. "I'm looking forward to joining millions of families at their breakfast table across the country."

The contest ends on May 31st. You can enter by Clicking Here.

With this change, what do you all think? Is this a good idea to change the cover of a cereal box that has been running the same mascot of more than 40 years and with the change, will there be commercials for the limited time cover change? Will WWE put other Superstars on other boxes cereal or will they make their own cereals based on their WWE Superstars?
