Boo Berry “Razzle Boo Blitz” Flavored Fruit By The Foot.

Your favorite monster cereal, now mashed into a foot-long roll of fruit substance. Mmmm Mmmm good!

I've had a bunch o' people email me about these "new" Boo Berry flavored Fruit by the Foot snacks. Contrary to popular belief, these have actually been out for several years now, but this is the first time I've been able to find them in a store... and it's apparently because I was looking in the wrong place all along. Boo Berry is the last thing you would expect to find in a CVS, but there he was in all his spooky splendor on a box of Fruit by the Foot "Razzle Boo Blitz" flavored fruit snacks. It's also not exactly the kind of product you'd expect to see Boo Berry on either, but at least they didn't try to shoehorn Count Chocula into their fruit snack line (not that I wouldn't try it if they did).

Anyway, the packaging looks just like this year's Boo Berry cereal box (which sadly comes with no extra goodies), and each Fruit by the Foot snack is nicely wrapped in Boo Berry themed foil. Sounds pretty good right? There's only one small problem with all of this...

Oh... I see what you did there!

Yyyyyyep. This is nothing but a repackaging of their "Razzle Blue Blitz" that's been around for ages. They didn't even bother to remove the old name from the individually wrapped treats. I like that they're getting Boo Berry more "out there" with this 'n all, but if they're putting in that kind of effort, they could at least make an exclusive flavor based on the cereal rather than this repackaged deal. Don't get me wrong, they're delicious as most fruit snacks are, I just would've liked something new. I want to see them actually try to translate my favorite cereal into a stretchy fruit snack rather than slap Boo Berry's face on the box of a preexisting flavor. They also did the same with Frankenberry, using their regular strawberry flavor and tacking the word "scream" onto it. Nice try General Mills, but you're not fooling any of us die-hard monster cereal fanatics.

Boo Berry cereal may not be the easiest thing to track down, even so close to Halloween, but I think you'll at least have a less difficult time finding the Fruit by the Foot monster cereal themed snacks in your local grocery stores... or... CVS. Just don't expect it to taste like your favorite monster cereals. Happy hunting.

I spent the summer in Florida, and found out that the store there actually sell Boo Berry cereal All Year Long! No wonder people choose that place to retire too. It's like heaven on earth.

Let's all play follow the leader to Florida! Conga Line! Hippie van? Whatever, I say we all make a big Boo Berry trip. Who's with me?

Florida is one of worst place on Earth. If it's not humid its raining, and if it's not raining then it's hot as can't win. Not even the draw of tasty cereal can draw me to that god-forsaken swamp.

I live Miami, don't know about anyone wanting to retire here anymore, but the WalMart in Hialeah has all 3 of them Boo, Frank, and the Count year round. I know theres a cult following here of the little blue ghost but Count Chocula remains the king of all time for me. I once turned to the blue side for a change and i was shitting bluish green for weeks.

Theres Florida, then theres Miami. I think the women here alone is enough to make any man put up with his balls being stuck to the side of his leg while profusely sweating year round.

funny store about boo berry, our drummer got in a fight over the last box of this with a 8 year old kid. Push came to shove, we won, and enjoyed the fruity goodness.

They sell Boo-Berry and Frankenberry here all the time too (Colorado Springs). I eat it a lot. It is good. It is not the same as it used to be. It is the corn syrup vs sugar thing. I will eat it regardless.

I also ship food.I like helping people shit blue.

That's advertising and marketing for you: money-grubbing, inconsiderate, evil bastards who will do whatever it takes to steal our ducats.

I would greatly love to see Count Chocula turned into a frosted paste of deliciousness and stuffed between oreos.

For an even more spookalicious treat, follow a simple rice krispie treat / cereal bar recipe, but use Boo Berry, Count Chocula, or Frankenberry cereal. This adds the element of thematic delight, as well; you can shape the cereal bars into ghost, bat, or other Halloween shapes.

I saw the FrankenBerry kind at CVS just yesterday, and my immediate thought was "Is there a Boo Berry variant? Will I-Mockery cover this?"

I don't know, maybe it is just me but doesn't Boo Berry look really wasted, while a roll of fruit by the foot is chasing him down to Hell?


beefity (Guest) on 10/06/2008 8:41 pm

You know what upset me. You would think since it's getting closer to Halloween that they would have boo berry and the other cereal monsters. However over her in my town they got rid of them around the holiday season! They had them all year round except during Halloween. I was quite shocked by this and sad because i really want some boo berry :
I hope they haven't rid of them all together!

I thought this was all a joke the first time I read something related to this cereal, but I don't seem to be able to shake my skepticism... Does that thing really makes you take a big, blue dump for days after consumption?


Aaron (Guest) on 10/07/2008 2:48 am

Not to mention Boo Berry is blueberry flavored not blue raspberry. Blueberry is MUCH better.

I did't know they still make this crapola. Maybe it's just overstock from the 1980s


ColdFusion (Guest) on 10/07/2008 6:37 pm

Anybody else see a problem with selling a ghost-themed cereal in a place known for being, yknow, where old people go to die? Anybody?
nah me neither. Let's dig in :)

nice matching up with Matt unintentionally again (that is posting about the same sort of thing within one or two days, it's kinda cool actually) maybe you two should should team up and cross post an article or two.
And ROG, i knew that you and him worked together before, it's pretty cool I think, though your blogs are very different (you have shorter threads and posts so you're kinda more accessible, but Matt has crazy long posts just about daily and insanely long threads at the end of each post)


Tim (Guest) on 10/13/2008 2:52 pm

They sell Boo Berry, Franken Berry, and Count Chocula all year around here (Dallas PA). It's about the only good thing about this area.
