These are cereals and "serial", too. What's the rebus?

01. 447-30586FF (Cap'n Crunch)

02. 0032-X-43333-66M (Wheat Toasties)

03. 00-0K-4389-SR11F (Corn Crunchies)



Answer

Serial Numbers ("Cereal Numbers").

While the numbers, AND the cereal names are "made up", they well represent names of real breakfast grain-cereals as well as representations of serial numbers.

The title in the hint is "Read the Box", where such numbers would be found.

There is also a HUGE hint in the body; wherein is mentioned the "serial" nature of the numbers. While the numbers (themselves) are not sequential, the 01, 02 and 03 enumeration is (serial). "Serial" means items following one-to-another.

The phrase "Serial Number" is a common expression used to denote the unique identification number given a wide variety of consumer goods. In the mass-consumption market (such as foods and clothing), the UPC (see above) is used in place of a serial number although each item, such as each box of cereal, or each carrot, or each sock is not uniquely identified.
