Celebrating 50 Years of Monster Cereals With A New One
In celebration of its 50th anniversary, Monster Cereals is fusing its entire lineup into one limited-edition cereal along with a Mockumentary video that records the remake of the classic Monster Mash song.
The latest cereal, dubbed Monster Mash, is a combination of pieces from the five iconic Monster Cereals such as Count Chocula, Boo Berry, Franken Berry, Frute Brute and Yummy Mummy, with the last two making a return after almost a decade.
The new cereal is described as “Artificially berry flavored frosted cereal with Monster marshmallows.”
The front of each 9-6-oz box of Monster Mash features the brand’s five monsters playing musical instruments.
General Mills said Count Chocula, Franken Berry and Boo Berry cereals also will be available in retro packaging this fall.
The Monster Cereals debuted in 1971 with the introduction of Count Chocula and Franken Berry. Boo Berry was the next cereal to join the lineup, in 1973. Frute Brute (formerly Fruit Brute) was introduced in 1974 but was discontinued in 1982. Fruity Yummy Mummy was the last product to join the portfolio, debuting in 1988. It was discontinued in 1992.
