Count Chocula, Boo Berry and Franken Berry are all sporting a brand new look . . . just in time for Halloween.

For more than 40 years, General Mills´ Monster Cereals have provided spoonfuls of spooky traditions and created Halloween memories all over the country. From September 26-October 31, head to your local Target® checkout aisle to check out the new look and pick up some to fill your favorite breakfast cauldron this year!”

monster cerealWhen I was younger, Franken Berry was always my favorite cereal. I loved the strawberry cereal and the way it turned my milk pink. Of course, those mini-marshmallows were always a plus. Now that I’m older and have my choice of cereals to choose from, I still get a box of Franken Berry on occasion. It brings back memories to when life was simpler and my biggest decision was what to wear to school.

Each serving of the playful, monster-themed cereal is low in fat with no cholesterol or saturated fat, providing a good source of calcium, whole grain and nine other essential vitamins and minerals.” Plus, it tastes great! My kids love Count Chocula the best (no surprise there) and I like that it’s made from whole grains. It’s a tasty way to get our mornings off to a great start!

To help you get into the Halloween mood, Grocery Savvy is offering everyone a free desktop background of your favorite Monsters character. While you’re there, you can also check out the cool “Let’s Go Disco” video!
