Creepy and comical, sweet and spooky, the Monster Cereals have made their return for Halloween 2017. There's no classic "retro" art from the original cereal boxes as seen on the editions first released in the 1970s (Count Chocula and Frankenberry were both introduced in 1971 as General Mills's answer to Quaker Oats' Cap'n' Crunch and Quisp/Quake line) nor are Fruit Brute nor Yummy Mummy anywhere to be seen, but we'll take what we can get. The cereals were first spotted by Madd Matt at Dinosaur Dracula on August 5, 2017. Now that's getting a jump on Halloween! One of the most fun aspects of General Mills' 2017 campaign is the inclusion of the other Big G cereal mascots like Lucky the Leprechaun from Lucky Charms getting in the October spirit by dressing up in costumes for the Monster's Bash. Check out the delicious photos ( loaded with "sweeties") below; the first one in line is courtesy of Dinosaur Dracula, meaning that I stole it). They are all part of the Countdown to Halloween 2017 here at Tulgey Wood.
