FRUTE BRUTE and FRUITY YUMMY MUMMY Return From The Cereal Graveyard This Halloween!
Grab your spoon, prepare your bowl, and lift that lid off your milk…our favorite Monster Cereal’s are returning from the grave! Seasonal regulars Count Chocula, Boo Berry, and Franken Berry are back as usual, but General Mills is resurrecting the long discontinued Fruit Brute (now rhythmically named Frute Brute) and Fruity Yummy Mummy!
My pals John Squires of Freddy in Space (and now FEARnet!) & Matt of Dinosaur Dracula brought this to my attention, and both have incredibly insightful posts full of the history of the Monster Cereal’s here, here, and here! I seriously recommend you read those and start your journey on becoming a cereal poindexter! Word is that these are now slowly becoming available at select retailers, and Target will have exclusive, collectable retro packaging as well! If you’re like me, you’ll be buying all five cereals to eat and keep in mint condition. Who knows, we may never see them again!
