When characters become popular, they start popping up in every part of our lives, including in the foods we eat. It's not a bad thing, though, since Scooby Doo fruit snacks, Mickey Mouse ice cream, and SpongeBob mac & cheese are some of the best snacks out there—don't @ me. So it's no surprise that Minions are now available in Nabisco cookie form.
Bello! Minions are coming! In cute little cookie form. Release date and locations announced as soon as I find out. Poopaye!

Ever since Despicable Me was released back in 2010—which...is a whole decade ago, somehow??—the little yellow characters known as Minions have become oh, so popular. It makes sense: They're cute, tiny, and have a language made of gibberish that is truly lovable. With the movies that followed, there was even more focus on the lil yellow guys, and now they're basically taking over our snack aisles.
Minions have already inspired waffle makers, cereal, and popsicles, so this new cookie addition is in good company. The Nabisco cookies will come in little pre-packaged servings, and feature different Minion shapes and what looks like a Gru shape too. According to @JunkFoodMom on Instagram, you can find them now at Target.
These cookies remind me of Teddy Grahams because of their size and appearance. They definitely look like they're a plain-ish flavor (likely just a good ol' vanilla cookie) in a bite-size shape that makes it an easy snack for kids. Each box comes with 12 little packs inside, and they're all just 120 calories-worth of cookies.
You can never go wrong with having little snacks like these around the house for your kids, and let's be honest here, you'll probably reach for them at some point, too.
