I don't ever buy treats like these. Not that I don't like them, they're delicious ... just gotta watch the waistline. But you know what? I'll use this as an excuse to have a box in the cupboard. You know, to "review" these for Seibertron.com. Right? :D

They probably won't sell these where I live, but I'd get some Chocwaves, probably not the Snoballmuses because of the coconut which...I'm not a fan of. <=I

Oh yeah...we never had Transformers cereal have we (The canceled G1 cereal doesn't count <;I)? jeez if the movie line couldn't make that happen then I don't think we're getting it anytime soon. :-( I'd totally buy a few boxes of your idea though, it sounds ace. ;)

"Chocwave" is a pretty funny-yet-clever pun, however "Snowballimus" isn't really all that great. Wonder if they taste like Energon? 8-} :lol:

"Chocwave" is just awesome. "Snowballimus" not so much. Too bad they didn't continue the trend with the Twinkies and Cup Cakes... a shame there isn't a Kup.

I have a feeling I'll be eating a lot of Chockwaves.
