thumb|300px|Sonic the Hedgehog Cheerios commercial Honey Nut Cheerios is a breakfast cereal produced by General Mills. In 1994, a television commercial for Honey Nut Cheerios featured Sonic the Hedgehog alongside the cereal's usual mascot, an anthropomorphic bee named Buzz. The slogan of the advert was "Race for the taste!"

Buzz challenging Sonic

The commercial begins with Buzz playing Sonic the Hedgehog 2 on the Sega Genesis. He is then sucked into the game, specifically the Emerald Hill Zone, where he challenges Sonic to a race for a box of Honey Nut Cheerios. Sonic gives a thumbs up, and the Sonic 'extra life' jingle can be heard. The two race through part of the Emerald Hill Zone (with scenery taken from game footage - including a loop-de-loop and Mobius-twist), although Buzz flies in-and-out of the plane of play, into the foreground and background. At the last stretch, Buzz trips and crashes into a palm tree, and coconuts fall on his head. Sonic then leaps out of the TV screen, where a bowl of Honey Nut Cheerios is waiting. Buzz asks "Hey Sonic, how can I be as good as you?" before Sonic dashes away.
