Bring on the 1980s in Hawkins! Stranger Things is back for Season 4 on Netflix and with it, they are giving us another breakfast classic to snack on.

While Eleven had her Eggo waffles (and really she still does), new pal Eddie Munson is all about a different breakfast classic. In a scene where Eddie is actually in hiding, he can be seen snacking on a box of cereal. And it turns out that cereal is none other than the classic Post Honeycomb Cereal.

Honeycomb is a cereal that has been on the market since 1965, which is why it is no surprise to see it popping up in 1986 Hawkins, IN. And since this is still a staple of cereal aisles everywhere, it also means that if we are looking for the perfect snack to do a rewatch of Stranger Things or to get ready for the next part of Season 4, then this is the way to go.

It is clear that our Stranger Things characters are all about those snack foods, desserts, and breakfast foods, and we are here for it. With four seasons of the Netflix series under our belt at this point, we have plenty of snacking inspiration for binge watching new episodes and of course rewatching the older ones.

Stranger Things adds Honeycomb to the list of breakfast nostalgia from the 1980s

And while we can’t say we don’t love the idea of snacking on some Honeycomb straight out of the box the same way Eddie did, or even pouring ourselves a bowl with milk, there are a number of other ways to enjoy this cereal. Over on the Post Honeycomb website, there is a recipes section that offers plenty of inspiration for us to take our Stranger Things snacking to a whole new level.

Some of the recipes that seem perfect for our next Netflix binge watch include:

  • Crunchy Cereal Squares
  • Monkey Munch
  • Tropical Caramel Honeycomb Party Mix

And honestly, these are just a few of the recipes Post has to offer, as they also recommend checking out their main website for even more recipes (these recipes include more of the Post brand products).

We love to see foodie Easter eggs in our shows, and this is definitely one we are loving. But we want to know what you think. Did you catch this moment when you watched Season 4? Were you surprised to see Eddie Munson snacking on some Honeycomb cereal?
