With the new Halloween year there is a time honored breakfast tradition returning to our pantries. Those delicious sweetened, puffed pieces of corn and dehydrated marshmallows we all know and love: Count Chocula, Boo Berry, and Franken Berry! Unfortunately General Mills did not see it necessary to bring back Yummy Mummy or Frute Brute; they did however, bring some other familiar faces along for the ride.
They’re creepy and they’re kooky, mysterious and spooky, they’re altogether ooky … The Addams Family! That’s right, for the first time ever the Monster Cereals is featuring a movie on their boxes. With the new film coming out, General Mills felt it was a great idea to feature the classic family on the classic cereal. This new packaging will feature downloadable pumpkin carving stencils so you or your kids can carve up your pumpkins with characters from both worlds. The back of the box, as seen above, will feature 8 tricky mistakes you can search for while you munch on your monsters.
General Mills once had a much larger array of Monster cereals but unfortunately discontinued Yummy Mummy and Frute Brute, only to reappear for a brief time as a limited edition. As much as I love the breakfast monster trio, I think it’s right time to bring them back! Or maybe some new ones? Kreature Krunch, maybe? Let us know what you think by either commenting here, Facebook, or our Instagram post!
General Mills Monster Cereals will be out this September, and you can see the new Addams Family movie October 11
