Halloween is right around the corner, and while many of us are scrambling to find the perfect Halloween costume, here is a treat most 30 and 40 something’s will remember very well.
General Mills has brought back three of their once very popular cereals that now seem to only resurface around Halloween – the “monster series” collection.
According to a Fox News report on Oct. 20, Franken Berry, Count Chocula and Boo Berry were three of the cereal giants biggest sellers back in the 1970’s and 80’s, but over time sales slowed and in 2010 General Mills discontinued them as part of their regular cereal line-up.
Well, for a limited time these three cereals have been brought back to grocery store shelves across the country and they are once again a hit, especially among nostalgic Gen-Xers generation who are reliving childhood memories – and passing the sugar filled love down to their own kids.
"This artificial scarcity has kind of galvanized a cult following around this time of year for these cereals," Dan Pashman, host of The Sporkful food podcast, told the station.
"There really is something about these particular artificial flavors that tap into a very specific sense memory."
Here in Michigan they are selling all three of these haunted classics cereals (while they last) at many Meijer stores across the state. Sales will run through Halloween or until they have sold out!
