Scary good Breakfast Cereals made for the Season

Halloween Cereals and the Power They Possess
By: Rob Dimension

If your like me, you have been searching high and low for these amazing Breakfast know...Count Chocula, Boo Berry and Frankenberry. Accessible during the Fall season, hunting these guys down can be tricky but I am here to help...I will be known as "Halloween Cereal Hunter Rob Dimension", not that catchy but still a good title.

Let's start with a little bit of background on these amazing breakfast starters - Did you know that there were originally 5 of these sugar coated treats? We have (currently) Count Chocula, Frankenberry and Boo Berry, but we can't forget the classics like Fruity Yummy Mummy (discontinued in 1993) and Fruit Brute (discontinued in 1983). I will admit, I really miss Yummy Mummy but Fruit Brute, from what I remember was nasty...the pitch was "Frosted fruit-flavored cereal
with lime flavored marshmallows" - LIME!!! Yuck...are you kidding me...well, I guess Zima and Fruit Brute would be a good mix.

The Key to hunting these bad boys of Breakfast down:

 The Major Chain stores - Stores like Target and Wal-Mart are known to carry these during the Fall season. Make sure you get there early (like now) to make sure they are not sold out. They order a batch and are then done, so once they are out...they are out.

Smaller stops - Stop and Shop in New Jersey has been reported to have some as a smaller grocery chain called Redner's - so if you miss on the bigger chains, hit locally.

Online - Yes, how bizarre, ordering cereal online, sounds nutty. It's the modern age, plus the benefit is they are available year round on sites like - in all honesty, Amazon pretty much has everything.

Retail price - Retail per box will range anywhere from $1.99 to $2.99 per box. Target, actually where I loaded up, was $2.50 per box...I call it a great deal for a slice of my childhood and well, a sugar rush too.

So head on out and get yourself some breakfast!!!!
