How to Dress Like Pop

Pop Costume Guide

Best Pop Halloween Costume Guide

Kellogg created a puffed rice cereal in the 1920s by the name of Rice Krispies. Who would have thought that such a simple cereal like this would become so popular? It wasn’t long before the cereal got its own commercial on the radio and then mascots. The three characters were all created by an illustrator named Vernon Grant, who ultimately based the names of the three little elves off of the ad. In the 1950s, a fourth character was added to the group, but that didn’t last too long.

Pop is the youngest of the three brothers. He’s very cheeky and is always trying to be the center of attention. Paired with his brother Crackle, the two of them get into a lot of mischiefs. Snap is left to pick up the mess they leave behind. Become part of the trio as Pop dressed in a Royal Guard Jacket, Blue Jeans, Black Belt, Elf Ears, Soldier Hat, and Black Boots.

The original design of the characters was that of older chefs. They had large, cartoon noses and ears that followed the style of the time. As time went by, styles changed, which also meant the artistic renditions of the mascots transformed. They went from older elves to young and rosy-cheeked children and somewhere in between. The current design of Snap, Crackle, and Pop are of children with elf characteristics. Seeing as the cereal is aimed at children, it just made sense to have the mascots be a similar age.

Pop shouldn’t go anywhere without his brothers Snap and Crackle! I’m sure you can find a friend or two who’d love to join you with this cosplay—who wouldn’t want to be a cute elf for a day? Make sure to eat a big bowl of Rice Krispies to start your day, so you’re filled with energy before dressing up like Pop!

About Pop

Pop is the youngest of the three mascots for the popular Kellogg’s cereal Rice Krispies. Created in 1928, Kellogg created some friendly faces to adorn the cereal boxes. They commissioned artist Vernon Grant to design gnome-like characters who became the new face of Rice Krispies. Through the years, the trio appeared in advertising such as radio, TV, movie shorts, and comic strips. They also had stars like The Rolling Stones record a song for one of their ads in the 1960s.

Over the years, they have morphed into characters with more pronounced elf characteristics and younger-looking features. Pop is the youngest brother and is very cheeky. He likes being the center of attention, which has led to having a mischievous personality. In the 1950s, a gnome by the name of Pow was part of a new marketing scheme, but he was dropped from the original three.
