Monster Cereals : Spook-tacular Giveaway


For more than 40 years, General Mills’ Monster Cereals have provided spoonfuls of spooky traditions and created Halloween memories all over the country. The same Count Chocula, Boo Berry and Franken Berry cereals you loved growing up are back for a limited time and are a spook-tacular way to start your day. Head over to your local Target, from now until October 31,and check out the new look and pick up some to fill your favorite breakfast cauldron this year!


Count Chocula, Boo Berry and Franken Berry cereal combine chocolate, blueberry and strawberry flavored cereal with colorful marshmallow shapes that kids and adults enjoy. Each serving of the playful, monster-themed cereal is low in fat with no cholesterol or saturated fat, providing a good source of calcium, whole grain and nine other essential vitamins and minerals.

I remember that I loved eating these Monster cereals back when I was a kid. Now my kids enjoy eating them. (I still do, too!) It's pretty funny though,that my daughter loves the Count Chocula with that rich chocolate flavor, while my favorite is the Boo Berry and my son enjoys the Franken Berry the best. We all agree that these Monsters cereals are pretty good!!! Just it's a tough decision- should we each them for breakfast or without milk for a spooky snack? (How about Both!!!)

What's Halloween without Monsters? Which Monster character is your favorite? Stop on by Grocery Savvy and download a desktop background of your favorite Monster character. Also while you are there, you can
check out the fun video “Monsters Go Disco”.

Every Halloween time my brother and I use to get those wax fangs. Then when our dad went to the grocery store we would have him buy us the Count Chocula cereal. Then we use to put our fangs on and pretend to be vampires trying to eat the cereal with them on (LOL)
