Brief History Of Monster Mash Cereal

In March 1971, the ever first two cereals in the line were introduced to the market which was the chocolate-flavored Count Chocula and the strawberry-flavored Franken Berry. In the commercials, the two monsters, Count Alfred Chocula and Franken Berry where engaged in comic bickering over which cereal was better and when something or someone else interfered in their verbal sparring and scared them out of their wits.

In February 1972, Franken Berry cereal included an indigestible pigment that turned some children’s feces pink, the symptom is referred to as “Franken Berry Stool. The Count Chocula and Franken Berry recipes were reformulated to remove this pigment completely.

Boo Berry, the first blueberry-flavored cereal was introduced in December 1973, and Fruit Brute in 1974. Fruit Brute was discontinued by 1982 and replaced in 1988 by Fruity Yummy Mummy, which was discontinued in 1992.During this period, Fruit Brute made conspicuous appearances in two films by Quentin Tarantino, Pulp Fiction and Reservoir Dogs, as a visual easter egg.

In 2010, Betty Crocker released Franken Berry and Boo Berry Fruit Roll-Ups. General Mills released Count Chocula cereal bars. Since 2010, Franken Berry, Boo Berry, and Count Chocula cereals has been produced and sold only for a few months during the autumn/Halloween season in September and October. As of late 2010, information such as nutrition data and historical facts can still be found on the official General Mills website at all times of the year.

In August 2013, General Mills released all five monster cereals for purchase during the Halloween season. Both Fruit Brute, which was released for the first time in 31 years, and Fruity Yummy Mummy, which was also released for the first time in 21 years, received updated packaging like the other cereals, and the Fruit Brute variant was renamed Frute Brute. Additionally, it was revealed on I-Mockery that special retro edition boxes of all five cereals with their original packaging art would be sold exclusively at Target stores.

In 2014, General Mills enlisted the help of DC Comics to create new designs for the cereals in time for that Halloween. The designs, revealed on August 6, consisted of a Boo Berry design by Jim Lee, a Count Chocula design by Terry Dodson and a Franken Berry design by Dave Johnson.

In 2021, it was announced that the company would celebrate the 50th anniversary of the introduction of the Monster Cereals by releasing an amalgamated cereal entitled Monster Mash.
