All wrapped up

Branded in the 80s has a fun bit about the introduction of Monster Cereal Yummy Mummy.

I actually cannot remember if I have ever eaten YM or the werewolf one, Fruit Brute, but I know I've had the Big Three -- Count Chocula, BooBerry and FrankenBerry. None of them taste great, in my opinion. CC is about the best, BB has the cutest mascot, and FB is like chewing on insulation flavored with cheap strawberry perfume from Avon.

Despite being a vegetarian for over a decade, I still crave BooBerry!

It's probably sentimental...I'm sure I'd get sick from the sweetness and artificial flavors. But the draw remains...damn marshmallows made from gelatin!

I love those cereals. Unfortunatly you can only get Count Chocola in Canada, and you have to look hard for it. One time when I was in the US I brought back a box of Boo Berry. It was soo good. Also unfortunatly as an adult you have to eat a ton of that stuff to get full (so I don't buy it too often).
