“Deliciousness to the End”
The breakfast cereal market being a cut throat business, new flavors for cereal were always being searched and huntedfor all across the globe. The promise of untold riches and deliciousness lured in thousands of Cereal Hunters each year, but only a select handful could make a living from it.
Tom Hammonds left the Cereal Hunting game at the top of his field, hoping to take it easy the rest of his life. His discoveries of “Life” cereal within a mummy’s crypt in Egypt and “Cookie Crisp” deep in the heart of the Amazon should have meant a carefree life for the rest of his days… Unfortunately, the sizable fortune he had accumulated for his retirement has dwindled down to nearly nothing after a costly divorce and an unplanned pregnancy with the cashier at Ralph’s.
So, Tom Hammonds finds himself back in the Cereal Hunting game, looking for that last big score. He knows there’s only one score big enough to accomplish what he needs— The Mythical Incan Breakfast Cereal of Legend!
Back in 1697, evil Spaniards robbed the Incans of their sacred breakfast cereal and packed it into treasure chests to ship back to Spain. A nameless Incan God cursed the ship carrying this precious cargo, and it sank to the bottom of the ocean— the cereal along with it.
While most Cereal Hunters dismiss the legend as mere superstition and folly, Tom knows there is elements of truth in the hushed whispers and folklore of the past. Utilizing his good standing with the Mermaid and Mer-man community of the Atlantic Ocean, he pieces together the route that the vessel carrying the Incan Breakfast Cereal of legend was believed to have taken before disappearing to the bottom of the ocean, never to be seen again.
And at the bottom of the ocean the Incan breakfast cereal sat… until now.
With the aid of his Mer-Man Guide, Tom Hammonds has found the wreckage, and the treasure chest overflowing with the Mythical Incan Breakfast Cereal! Tears well up in his eyes as his robo-sub’s claws open the chest to reveal the still-crunchy, delicious cereal within.
He brings the cereal back to America and auctions it off to the highest bidder, plus a percentage of the profits. Incan Breakfast Cereal fever captures the nation, as stores can hardly keep it on the shelves. The legends were true— it is the most delicious, healthy, sweet-but-not-too-sweet and stays crunchy in milk cereal… EVER.
Unfortunately, the nameless Incan God cursed the cereal itself, and now all of the children who ate the cereal are dead. Those who ate the cereal and survived are jealous of those who died quickly.
The Incan Empire is no more, but they have had the last laugh.
