I have always wanted to try this cereal, ever since I was but a single-digit, but I have never once seen it in stores. I've never had FrankenBerry either (not to mention the two discontinued ones). I guess I will try looking again this year.

There's stuff to be done with cases of General Mills monster cereals. A couple of years ago my mother-in-law sent me a case of Frankenberry and I had a great time building forts and making tray after tray of Frankenberry krispie treats. That was the year I gave boxes of Frankenberry out for trick-or-treat.

I noticed three "retro" Monster Cereal shirts at JC Penney's. I got a boo-berry; there was also a Count Chocula and one of all three monsters together. They're nice and soft.

Are you going to go around doing the old Peter Lorre voice?

Now if only Fruit Brute and Fruity Yummy Mummy would make a comeback and reform the General Mills Cereal Monster Quintet.

Boo Berry does rock, though. Just ate some yesterday.

I always get excited whenever October comes around because I know its Boo Berry season again. I just got some fresh Boo Berries the other day.

I can only ever find Count Chocula here in Utah. I had Frankenberry once as a child and I wasn't impressed. I am curious about Boo Berry.

The apocalypse can wait, Julio... my stomach can't.

For those of you who have trouble finding Boo Berry in your local stores: the one place that seems to carry it every October is Target. If you can't find it there, I suggest trying to buy it online, because plenty of places sell it online, including eBay. Happy hunting!

I noticed the cereal at the target near my University about a week ago. It was odd, since I don't recall ever seeing it at my old Target. Perhaps next time I go I'll remember to actually buy it.

I've never had Boo Berry either. I live out in the middle of nowhere, and I can't remember even seeing Boo Berry sold in the stores here. Guess I'll have to make the trip to civilization and see if I can find some.

That's an awesome bit of trivia! I thought that voice on the old commercial sounded familiar!

Boo Berry is pretty good, as is Count Chocula... but Franken Berry is the clear winner!
I'll battle anyone to the death who disagrees. TO THE DEATH!

That being said general mills needs to work on the texture of the monster cereals. I'm lactose intolerent so I eat my stuff milk-free and all their cereals are as hard as glass shards! They taste good, but I'm still expecting blood to pour out of my mouth when I finish a bowl.

Hmm... haven't picked any up yet... gotta go to the store in the morning.....

I had Frankenberry once, when my parents went to the states & bought it while grocery shopping.

Stupid Canadaland, we don't get any awesome cereals like this D:

I've had all three cereals before. In order of taste it is 1)Boo Berry, 2)FrankenBerry, 3)Count Chocula. Hate Count Chocula.

I've never had Boo Berry before. Part of me thinks I'm really missing out on something. I was a Yummy Mummy man in my youth but that's as far as I ever went with the monster cereals.

Wow, that costume looks even better than the package! I thought the hat was going to be sort of a pink.

Pogo: Boo Berry basically tastes like blue berry Fruit Loops shaped like ghosts, with marshmallows and an extra dash of awesome added in.

Those Boo Berry Fruit Roll Ups look amazing. I looked at three different stores and couldn't find any though.

Dextire: Holy moses, that sounds like a party in one's mouth where everyone is invited. I feel kind of shameful for ignoring this cereal. Any cereal with marshmallows is worth its weight in gold.

I was at target a couple days ago and saw they had all three monster cereals. I felt the need to get some and decided on boo berry partly because of your articles.

Just wanted to know that your gospel is spreading and you are getting converts. Not disappointed with my choice.

I thought you would be happy when you saw the back of the box.
