Subject: Stop oppressing Boo Berry
Don't think we don't notice.
We see how you try to pretend Boo Berry doesn't exist.
Boo Berry has never gotten the acknowledgement he deserves. No other
cereal has the hardcore fan base of Boo Berry. Boo Berry is the best
cereal the world has ever known. Please help Boo Berry receive the
credit he needs and deserves. You could be responsible for a new
generation of lifetime Boo Berry eaters. Thank you for at least
continuing to create Boo Berry+ADs- I know I'm not the only one who

My co-workers and i were actually talking about BooBerry last night at work. It seems to us that there is a very large group of people who only remember BooBerry when they were kids... and now, as adults, want
to relive some of those delicious memories. But we can't do that if we
can't find the cereal! I still see advertisements for the other
monster cereals, but what about our favorite blue ghost? It was BY FAR the
best... with nothing to even compete against it in that flavor category.
(By the way, did I mention that just the thought of BooBerry is making
me drool!? OK, not really, but I am definitely craving!!!! There is a
very large market for this cereal, if only people were reminded of its
Liz Cease ****who is frantically searching for her very own box of
BooBerry to appease her tastebuds***
I have searched hi and low throughout the New York City area for the sweet, blue
fuel known as Boo Berry cereal. Please please please flood every bodega, drug store, and supermarket in
Manhattan (East Side 20's) with that wonderful creation.
Boy are you on the money with this Boo Berry thing!
What the hell is wrong with General Mills? I've already emailed them. Boo Berry has always been hard
to find in the St. Louis Metro area. I've discussed
this topic with friends before but little did I know that someone had picked up the crusade via the web. Bravo!

Dear head person,
I'm sure you are aware of a growing problem that is changing
the face of cereal consumers everywhere; there is a drastic
shortage of Boo Berry cereal in US stores today. It seems that
not only here in the Midwest but all across the nation there is
a large difficulty in finding our favorite childhood cereal, Boo
Berry, in a standard grocery. I remember my mother buying
me Boo Berry on rare occasions in the early, early 80's and
thinking, "Wow! This is the best cereal EVER!" But alas it
disappeared from those hallowed shelves of the grocery to
be replaced by an aggressive campaign from Count ChocoChump
to take over the monster cereal market. Yes yes, I'm sure some
marketing manager in a moment of what HE/SHE considered
a necessity decided that Boo wasn't worthy of producing
because he wasn't making the company the 'big bucks' but
alas; those researchers didn't do a very good job in this Boo
So I am asking,
petitioning even that the distribution of
Boo Berry cereal be broadened or made more available. I
KNOW I'm not the only one that feels this way. There is even
the official Boo Berry page to prove it!!! So C'mon! Let's see
some more Boo! AND for Boo's sake, let's get some of that
old promotional stuff included! I know many, many boxes
would be purchased not only for their tasty, blue flavor but
also to get our hands on those awesome promotional
merchandise. Remember the old Boo Berry die cast car? Or
how about the old shirts? You're missing a big market too
because if you actually noticed, there has been a resurrection
of old brand names being sported on t-shirts. Whether it's
Tide or Transformers, you could stand to make a few bucks
by selling some killer official Boo shirts or something...Anyhoo
Just a Boo fan,

I would like to voice my opinion after surfing on your site just a few
days ago. I am very glad to see that there are other lovers of Boo Berry like
me. Boo Berry has been pushed around its while existence by bad tasting
cereals like Trix and Fruit Loops. Count Chocula is a good cereal as well as
Frankenberry, but in my mind the head of the monster cereals is undoubtedly
Boo Berry. I just hope more people come to their senses and realize that the
best damn cereal ever is hard to find, luckily it is found in my area but
there is unlucky who have to go through the torture of not having Boo Berry's
everyday as they did in their childhood. When will the corporate executives
that we don't want chocolate, we want berries and we want it blue!
Hi. I just sent this message to General Mills, and I wanted to send you a
copy as well:
Hello. I am a 27-year old computer programmer (credibility ;^) from the
Rochester, NY area. I am just writing to say thank you for bringing back
Boo Berry cereal, at least for the Halloween season. I would also like you
to know that I would be extremely happy if you were to bring back the cereal
to my area permanently. I've never written to a company to express this
type of opinion before, but I just finished a bowl of the cereal, and I
couldn't help but think to myself that I wish I could always get
Boo Berry. I only bought two boxes, because I don't want it to go bad. I will
definitely miss the cereal when it's gone. Please take my request into
consideration. I've seen a lot of "fan" support on the internet supporting
my view, and I don't think it would be a mistake. I think it would go over
well with those who remember the cereal when it was widely available, as
well as those who may never have tried it before. Thank you.

Until tonight, I never really went the distance and searched for a boo berry
page. But after seeing a special on the daily show on boo berry addicts, I had
to do the search. I wondered why they could possibly exclude ME from the
interview of boo berry addicts, because I am the poster child for the addiction. I buy 2-4 boxes a week of this stuff, and usually eat half a box of it at one
sitting. I didn't really think I was the only fan of Boo Berry, but I had no
idea that it had a following. Its just a cereal... isn't it?
I'm not one of your johnny-come-lately boo berry eaters. I'm 19, so I
didn't get it when it first came out-- but when I was but a lad I remember getting a box,
maybe one a year. Then it slowly faded away... until about 4 months ago. I was
walking around Bi-Lo and checking out the cereals, when I walked along and
noticed that they had not one monster cereal, not two- but all three.
That's right, the Chocula bastard and the Franken guy they had, but they never
impressed me... my eyes fell right on the one and only blue box. I grabbed what
was left of it and went home, not expecting what would happen next.
I began to take my liking of the cereal rather seriously. I began to tell
people I ate boo berry all the time, and any time I would be on the
phone/internet I would brag to my friends that I was eating Boo Berry. Some of
them didn't believe me, which is why I took a picture of me with my current
dosage, 4 boxes. That's a big reason I am writing this letter.
I believe you should
encourage the site's visitors to take pictures of them with their boo berry and send them in. I believe it would be a tremendous idea-- and
may I be the first to submit my picture, which is located here.
I thank you for your
time and await a response.
Great site! Keep it up.
Your wish has been granted Jared! All Boo Berry fans are welcome
to send me photos of themselves with their boxes and bowls of Boo
Berry Cereal! I have setup a page for all of these future picture
