You've heard it before, but I'll say it again. I ADORE Halloween! When I was a kid, it really did rank right up there with Christmas for me. I always looked forward to those crummy, cheap plastic Halloween costumes, candy swapping with my siblings, and horror movies! Though I don't remember too many of the costumes, what candy I got in my basket, or which horror movies had me biting my nails down to the nubs, the one thing I do still remember getting excited over was the limited edition Monsters Cereals that General Mills brought out every fall. Count Chocula, Franken Berry, and Boo Berry. Oh, how I couldn't wait for my mom to stock up on them each year! Now, they are back for the Halloween season, and you can pick up your favorite Monster cereal at Target in cool retro boxes!
The Retro Monsters are back! Count Chocula, Boo Berry and Franken
Berry cereals are once again hitting the shelves at Target in their
retro packaging and they’ve brought Monsters snack items for you to
enjoy as well. Try Count Chocula Treats, Boo Berry Fruit Roll-Ups and
Franken Berry Fruit Roll-Ups in special retro packaging, found
exclusively at Target.
Perfect for nostalgic cereal fans and Halloween lovers, Monsters cereals and snacks are fun for the whole family.
As tasty as the cereal is on its own, we decided to try out a new recipe using the Monster cereals. We had some extra ice cream left over in our freezer from my nephew's birthday party, so we decided to whip up some Franken Berry Blizzard Treats.
2 cups vanilla ice cream
3/4 cup Franken Berry cereal
1/4 cup milk
Place all ingredients into a blender, and pulse until combined.
Pour into 2 small or 1 large glass.
Garnish with extra cereal pieces.
Once you are done with the cereal, there's even more fun. Flip the box over and grab yourself a fun Halloween cut out mask! Each box has a mask of its respective monster. When I was a kid, we would have cut the masks out, then changed them out to try to trick the neighbors into giving us more candy! Especially those who passed out the full sized candy bars :)
You can find all the retro Big G Monsters Cereals and snacks at your local Target store. If you would like to learn more, be sure to visit the website and follow along on Facebook.
Besides candy, what was your favorite Halloween treat when you were a kid?
