The iconic General Mills Monster Cereals are all coming together for the first time to celebrate this year’s 50th anniversary with a new Monster Mash cereal, but the celebration doesn’t end there, with new Monster Mash fruit snacks also debuting in stores for the 2021 Halloween season.
While Count Chocula, Franken Berry, Boo Berry, Frute Brute, and Yummy Mummy all have distinct flavors already associated with their namesake cereals, the new fruit snacks are packaged simply as “Spooky Berry,” including gummy versions of the Monster Cereal characters Franken Berry in red, Frute Brute in yellow, Boo Berry in blue, Yummy Mummy in orange, and Count Chocula in purple (likely grape flavored?), plus a sixth green gummy of the Monster Cereal Castle, as first reported by Cerealously.
The Monster Mash fruit snacks are available exclusively from Sam’s Club in a huge box including 90 bags of the gummy candy for $9.98, perfect for something different to hand out to trick or treaters this October
As previously reported, all of the classic monster-based brands – Count Chocula, Franken Berry, Boo Berry, Yummy Mummy, and Fruit Brute – are joining forces for the mashup cereal, which celebrates the 50th birthday of the line’s launch with the Count Chocula and Franken Berry cereals back in 1971. Boo Berry followed in 1973, with Fruit Brute coming along in 1974 and Yummy Mummy in 1988.
Some combination of the cereals, mainly including Count Chocula, Franken Berry, and Boo Berry, are now released annually for a limited time during Halloween season. Notably, the werewolf-themed Fruit Brute has not been released since 2013.
