Friday nights have been Family fun nights at our house for years. Now that the girls are in their teens and tweens, we let them decide if it’s game night or movie night and it just so happens, tonight is going to be movie night thanks to Big G Cereal Movies. This post is sponsored by General Mills but my love for their cereal and family fun is all my own.

Big G wants to inspire family nights together with classic movies that you can share with your loved ones anytime, anywhere by offering a free HD movie download when you purchase 2 boxes of these participating cereals:

  • Honey Nut Cheerios
  • Fruity Cheerios
  • Frosted Cheerios
  • Lucky Charms
  • Reese’s Puffs
  • Trix
  • Cocoa Puffs
  • Golden Grahams

We chose Lucky Charms and Frosted Cheerios.  We had to look through the Big G cereals available to make sure we selected boxes with the General Mills and Fox MovieDownload Promotion movie banner across the front to ensure we’d get the code needed. 

Once you have your Big G cereal home, it’s time to decide what movie you are going to download. There are 10 great movies to choose from.

We chose Mr. Popper’s Penguins.  Downloading our movie was easy.  

  • We found the codes needed in each cereal box.
  • Went to Big G Cereal Movies and entered codes.
  • Downloaded our free movie.

No family movie night would be complete without a snack, so we were happy to see snack recipes on both boxes of Big G cereal. The girls and I raided our pantry and came up with our own version of Lucky Charms Peanutty Good Luck Snack. We added Cashews, Pretzel bites and Frosted Cheerios to our recipe. It is so sweet and salty good that we had to put it away to wait until official movie time tonight.

Here is the recipe for Lucky Charms Peanutty Good Luck Snack from cereal box:


4 cups Lucky Charms cereal
1 cup candy-coated peanut butter pieces

Enjoying our family movie nights is just one of the ways we spend quality time together as a family, and now thanks to Big G, we’ll have Mr. Popper’s Penguins in our movie collection to watch again and again.

  1. So, do you download it to your computer or tablet or what? I think we would download anastasia since they have never seen that. I am going to keep an eye out for that. We just rented We Bought a Zoo and watched it today. Good movie.

  2. How fun!! I love that snack mix - never saw anything like that...YUM!!!

  3. I can't wait to try the Lucky Charms Peanutty Good Luck Snack! That looks really good for our next movie night.

  4. I have already downloaded 2 of these movies to Google Play and we watched them today. I need to go grab 2 more boxes so I can get another one.

  5. Looks like a great snack! Lucky Charms is a favorite around here, I'm sure my sons would love this mix!

  6. I love Marmaduke and the beauty of Lion, Witch and Wardrobe. We went to see Maleficent in the movie theater, and I absolutely loved it. Very good movie.

  7. There is some great movies for my kids to watch. This is a good prize in the cereal.

  8. Hi Mom of Two,

    Yes, you can download the movie to any device that you can watch a movie from.

    We love We Bought a Zoo too!

  9. Hi Jamie,

    It really is a good snack that's easy to keep on hand. Glad you liked the recipe. :)

  10. Hi Daisy,

    We still have a little of our snack left, but not much. It goes quickly! I hope you get to make some for your next movie night.

  11. Hi Carlee,

    Awesome! Free movies are always a great treat.

  12. Hi Barb,

    If your boys are fans of Lucky Charms cereal, they are going to love this snack. My family sure did.

  13. Hi Yona,

    My youngest daughter wanted to adopt Marmaduke after seeing that movie.

    We saw Maleficent too and loved it as well!

  14. Hi Tara,

    They really are great kids movies to chose from. We've watched several of them.

  15. This is a good list of movies! We loved We Bought a Zoo, and I'd love to download it to our tablet for when we travel this summer!

  16. Hi Ginny Marie,

    We love We bought a Zoo too and I know there will be some talk back and forth before we download another movie because it's so hard to choose just one.

  17. That recipe sounds pretty good. When the kids were young, we always had a movie night. I still enjoy a movie night now.

  18. Great idea! I love this easy recipe snack! Perfect along with a Disney Movie night out! Thanks for posting this up! :D
