-closed- General Mills´ Monster Cereals: MyBlogSpark Review and Giveaway

It´s time to scare up vintage breakfast-time fun this fall! The same Count Chocula®, Boo Berry® and Franken Berry® cereals you loved growing up are back for a limited time and are a spook-tacular way to start your day.
For more than 40 years, General Mills´ Monster Cereals have provided spoonfuls of spooky traditions and created Halloween memories all over the country. From September 26-October 31, head to your local Target® checkout aisle to check out the new look and pick up some to fill your favorite breakfast cauldron this year!

Count Chocula®, Boo Berry® and Franken Berry® cereal combine chocolate, blueberry and strawberry flavored cereal with colorful marshmallow shapes that kids and adults enjoy. Each serving of the playful, monster-themed cereal is low in fat with no cholesterol or saturated fat, providing a good source of calcium, whole grain and nine other essential vitamins and minerals.

Be sure to also check out http://www.grocerysavvy.com/, where you can view the fun "Let´s Go Disco" video and download a desktop background of your favorite Monsters character.


We received a Monster Cereals prize pack which includes one box each of Count Chocula®, Boo Berry® and Franken Berry® cereal, a special trick-or-treat tote bag and a $10 Target® gift card to purchase Halloween goodies or more cereal. Of course the kids were excited for the fun cereal! Sure I let them eat it, I was never as lucky getting these as a kid. I liked the Boo Berry blue one best, seemed to have the most flavor. The bag is a great little sturdy bag and will probably be used as a tote bag.



One "Mommy? I'm Hungry!" reader will win a Monster Cereals prize pack also!

I remember! My dad had a grocery store in our small town and he brought these cereals home the night before they went on sale, so we got to try them before any of the other kids.
I still love the Count!
