At Target today, I bumped into some old pals in the Halloween aisle! Yep, I found the new retro Monster Cereals and man was it a glorious sight to behold. For a cereal enthusiast/box collector like me, I had to stand there and gawk at the display. It was like I was standing in front of the Mona Lisa in awe. Right there in Target, my childhood was on display!
Count Chocula probably visited my childhood breakfast table the most. Nice to see him again in his definitive form.
Franken Berry always had the best looking box and is my favorite of this retro bunch.
Boo Berry was always my favorite tasting Monster Cereal. Looking at this box, I can hear the Peter Lorre style voice.
Frute Brute returns from extinction three decades later and has dropped the letter I from his name.
Fruity Yummy Mummy showed up in the late 80s and disappeared in the early 90s. Glad he's returned to join his friends!
A Big G thanks to General Mills for reintroducing Frute Brute & Fruity Yummy Mummy and releasing retro boxes of the Monster Cereals.
Now I can't wait for breakfast!
