For those of us of a certain age, these cereals bring back memories. I knew they were available this Halloween season at Target but hadn't made it there - I discovered yesterday that Harris Teeter has them!! Had Frankenberry this morning and was happy to learn (I'd been afraid to read the ingredients) - that it doesn't have as much sugar as I'd thought - only 9!

Yea I saw them here at my local Kroger store the other day and was shocked. I hadn't seen those cereals in years. Does anybody know why they stopped making them? I wish they'd bring them back for good instead of just making them for Halloween.

They don't seem as good as they used to, especially Franken Berry.

Boo Berry is my favorite cereal ever. Unfortunately for me, no one carries it around here.

It has a whole lot less sugar than it used to have.

I'm loving my FrankenBerry - it's sweet enough for me (I don't like super sugary cereals). If they lowered the sugar from the old days - good for them!

No Yummy Mummy?
I'm long past liking sugary cereals although I think I would like to try Kaptain Krunch again for old times sake. Who remembers Jean Lafoot?
Freakies cereal had some bizarre commercials.

Count Chocula -- at 30 percent off -- was flying off the shelves at my local Target yesterday.
