Monster Cereals, Part Of This Good Halloween Breakfast
The Monster Cereals from "Big G" have made their annual Halloween return, but this year there is unfortunately no new art. The boxes have the same designs as last year so if you would like to see what they look like, please check out my Monster Cereal post from 2017 here. Even more unfortunately, there is no sign of the retro boxes with the original versions of the Big G monsters from the 1970s. So here's a look back at a vintage Franken Berry box featuring both the fun design originally used for the animated character and also, "Inside" (breakfast cereals stopped boasting of "FREE Inside" prizes in the 1970s), one of the best premiums ever: erasers that also doubled as toys/finger puppets representing the whole cast of creepy cereal spokes-monsters (and three other characters) that are always welcome to help us Countdown to Halloween for 2018.
