You’ve probably played Super Mario Odyssey by now. But have you tasted it?

Nintendo’s new Super Mario Cereal lets you enjoy a sugary rush of grains and marshmallows inspired by the iconic Italian plumber, while also scoring some extra items in the new game. But is the cereal any good? We got our hands on a box before the cereal hits supermarkets on Dec. 11, and did the hard work of eating a bunch of it to deliver you some crucial hands-on (and mouths-on) impressions.

Let’s start with the box, which features a Mario-themed maze on the back as well as a variety of simple Mario trivia questions. But the real kicker is its amiibo functionality, which allows you to scan the back of the box to your Nintendo Switch to get a few goodies in Super Mario Odyssey.

The box works like any other amiibo that isn’t specific to Odyssey. If you scan it while talking to Uncle Amiibo in any of the game’s worlds, he’ll reveal the location of a Power Moon. He also acknowledges the box as a “delicious amiibo,” which made me chuckle.
