Ghosts, goblins, and ghouls may be on the prowl, but Monsters have all the fun!
When I was a kid, my sister and I would beg my mother to buy General Mills Monster cereal. The boxes were so cute and I love, love, loved the marshmallows.
A few weeks ago I got these retro-boxes of Monster cereal and it took me way back! I guess I'm dating myself, huh? Yes, Monster cereal has been around for over 40 years (43 to be exact). This cereal is iconic and not just in a throwback kinda way either, this cereal is historical!
Did you know....
Count Chocula was the first chocolate-flavored cereal - eva!
Boo Berry was the first blueberry-flavored cereal - eva!
Franken Berry was the first strawberry-flavored cereal eva!
That's history right there!
If you want to travel back to a time when life was simpler and unplugging was cool (and not optional) you can get Monster cereal in retro packaging (from 1979 & 1980) at Target. And there are cut-out masks on the back of each box, instant Halloween costume! LOL In addition, you can pick up Boo Berry and Franken Berry Fruit Roll-ups and Count Chocula Krispy Treats too!
We decided to make some delicious crispy treats of our own - and they are fabulous (+ sweet)!
It's been fun having a little nostalgia in our kitchen, always nice to be a kid again!
