You know the Halloween season is upon us when the iconic General Mills Monster Cereals start arriving at local stores, and it’s happening this month, as the official 2017 box art was unveiled today, featuring the “big three” classics, Franken Berry, Boo Berry, and Count Chocula.
Read on for the full press release, and then check out the official images of this year’s boxes, the backs of which include many other General Mills cereal mascot characters dressed up in costume for Halloween.
The Monster Cereals are creeping back into grocery stores across the U.S. this month, kicking off the 2017 Halloween cereal season with Boo Berry, Count Chocula and Franken Berry.
This year, even some of our other cereal characters are getting in on the Halloween hoopla!
In true trick-or-treat fashion, BuzzBee, Lucky, Sonny, Trix Rabbit and the Cinnamon Toast Crunch Squares are dressing up as their favorite cereal monster. And even Boo, Count and Franken are dressing up as each other.
Franken Berry’s fan club includes the Pillsbury Doughboy and Sonny from Cocoa Puffs. And the Count trades in his cape for pink bolts and chains.
Count Chocula’s costume crew consists of the Trix Rabbit, the CTC Squares and his berry good friend, Boo.
Boo Berry’s best impersonators are BuzzBee, Lucky, and Franken Berry.
The Monster Cereals are only available in the U.S. The 2017 boxes should start arriving in stores at the end of this month.
