Breakfast is the most important meal of the day–and General Mills will again try to make your breakfasts during this Halloween season the most fun meal of the year.
That’s right! Monster Cereals are back to haunt your supermarket shelves, something the sweet (and scary) delights have been doing now for nearly 50 years, as reported by comicbook.com.
The traditional leaders of the Monster Cereal lineup–Franken Berry, Count Chocula and Boo Berry (complete with their tasty monster marshmallows)–have signaled the end of summer and the onset of the Halloween season for kids of all ages for decades now.
Missing from shelves this year–as has been the case for several years–are Fruit Brute and Fruity Yummy Mummy boxes. These cereals last appeared during a two-year relaunch back in 2013 and 2014.
The first two Monster Cereals–the chocolate-flavored Count Chocula and the strawberry-flavored Franken Berry–were introduced in March 1971. Boo Berry–generally recognized as the first blueberry-flavored cereal–debuted in December 1973. Since 2010, the Big Three have been manufactured and sold only during Halloween’s peak months of September and October.
And, to make the season even sweeter, General Mills also will roll out–for a limited time–Pumpkin Spice Cheerios and Reese’s Puffs Bats (bat-shaped remakes of the usual Reese’s Puffs cereal).
The mid-size boxes of all these seasonal favorites will set you back $2.50, with the larger family-size cereals costing $3.99, according to allrecipes.com.
So, keep your breakfast bowls full of Halloween happiness with the Monster Cereals, and stay with Horror News Network for updates on everything horror this season.
