The breakfast staple, dubbed March Munch Cinnamon Crunch, sells for $29.99 US for a two-pack on the company’s website. It will also be available at three American grocery stores: Shaw’s, Star Markets and Market Basket.

According to PLB Sports & Entertainment, a portion of the proceeds from every box sold will support Christopher’s Haven, an organization that supports families of children being treated for cancer.

There was quite a bit of chirping on social media in response to Marchand’s announcement, including a few that referenced his past penchant for … licking.

Marchand is the latest Nova Scotian NHLer to grace the front of a cereal box.

Last February, the Colorado Avalanche’s Nathan MacKinnon has his own cereal — named MacKinnon Krunch. In MacKinnon’s case, the cereal tasted more like “frosted corn flakes.”
