Once you've found the secret entrance to the box, inside you find crunchy cereal shapes in the form of treasure from Tutankhamun's tomb. One in every million boxes contains either a genuine bit of gold treasure or a deadly poison.

On opening the box it is obligatory to look inside and say "I see wonderful things!".

       "can I have some more, mummy?"

       Naturally the eye of Ra would be honey-flavored.

       cute but cursed!

       Sounds like a pyramid selling scheme to us.

       The cereal itself could be Alpha-bits in ancient Eqyptian characters.   

       I think the box itself needs to be a pyramid in shape.

       Of course you should include a few tantalising hints that there might be further undiscovered chambers somewhere in the box.

       Mummified cats ...

       There could certainly be a "false bottom" to the box, leading you to think it's empty when it's not.

       Not to be confused with 'Pharoah's Tomb: The breakfast cereal' which consists of a box with a randomly positioned hole in the side and that is almost completely empty apart from a few grains of sand and some cobwebs.

Two grams of Natron?
  

       There could be a whole series of tomb themed breakfast cereals. e.g. The Viking Tomb breakfast cereal, in the shape of a longship, with a book of matches pasted to one end. The Qin Shi Huang Tomb breakfast cereal, contains one piece of cereal and thousands of plastic collectable figurines.

       FREE INSIDE! One Book of the Dead!

       We wonder what might be in the box of Richard Dawkins breakfast cereal.

       Lots of sharp, metal, jagged pieces of broken crucifixes, likely.

       //Alpha-bits in ancient Egyptian characters// I really like this concept - Alphabetti Spaghetti (and by extension, any other alphabet-based foodstuffs) only in hieroglyphs - Hieroglyphi Linguini?

       FREE INSIDE! One mummified cat.
(EDIT: 8th of 7 beat me to it. Big surprise.)

       //Mummified cats ...//   

       This does not sound like a breakfast for a hungover day. The little bones and clumped fur would push anyone over the edge!

       I prefer the little organ jars myself. Crispy on the outside, soft on the inside.
DrWorm, May 28 2010
  

       Tiny, crunchy canopic jars, filled with chocolate. Mmmmm...
8th of 7, May 28 2010
  

       Why tiny? Make them full size, perfect replicas inside and out, all edible.
pocmloc, May 28 2010
  

       That sounds like the guts of an idea ...

       Your wish is my command

       "There seems to be no doorbell on this pyramid - just a small horn hanging by the door."
"Yes, just toot and come in."
  

       Sorry.

       Even following your instruction [MB], I cannot in.
