This isn’t a Halloween Countdown

Because I celebrate Halloween every day.

And yet, if you visit my site at any point during the next two months, I can promise you’ll find something Halloweeny.  If not Halloweeny, then at least horrory.  If not horrory, then some other word with a “y” added to the end.

Today, I’m here for one reason: I’ve tasted my first bowl of Yummy Mummy, and it was glorious.

I’ll fess up.  I’ve never been the biggest fan of General Mills’ Monster Cereals.  Sure, I love the idea of them, as I love anything related to Halloween and horror.  But it wasn’t something I had ever eaten, or something I ever desired to eat.  That is, until this year.  When I heard GM was re-released the long dead monster Cereals Yummy Mummy and Fruit (now Frute) Brute, some dormant part of my inner Halloween Child came alive, and screamed for a bowl of these wonderful marshmallow laden breakfast treats.

I’ve been on the lookout for weeks now, and finally I found Yummy Mummy and Boo Berry at Walgreens.  They also had Franken Berry, but I wanted to slow play this whole thing.  Partly because I’m broke, and partly because I know that Target plans on releasing a limited collection of these monster cereals with their vintage box art.

I, of course, plan to buy them all.

    Horrory, huh? As long as it’s not anything “whorey”. No one needs to see that 🙂

    I hope we get the cereals up here in Canada, too! Otherwise, a little cross-border shopping may be in order.

    • Ha! I was thinking the same thing. Do you have Target, Walgreen, or CVS? I think they’ll be in those stores, and probably supermarkets too.
