It’s almost that time of year again. The time when General Mills’ Monster Cereals return for the Halloween season! Yes, I’m talking about the big three: Count Chocula, Frankenberry, and Boo Berry. General Mills announced this week in their product blog the new 2019 box designs are done. Will this year’s run include Frute Brute or Yummy Mummy? What Hollywood horror franchise are they crossing over with this year?
Read on for all the details! But first? A history lesson!
Monster Cereals 2019 Announcement
Monster Cereals is teaming up with a famously frightful family.
One you’ll surely recognize.
They’re creepy and they’re kooky, mysterious and spooky, they’re altogether ooky … The Addams Family!
New this year, our Monster Cereals and The Addams Family are offering free downloadable pumpkin carving stencils.
“With The Addams Family movie coming out in October, we wanted to partner because of the timeliness with Halloween,” said Sarah McCullough, planner, Brand Experience, at General Mills. “We thought it would be a fun idea to offer stencils during a time when people are carving pumpkins. We created them so people can interact with our characters and the ones from The Addams Family.”
You can download all 10 pumpkin stencils at MonsterCarving.com and carve the whole crew!
“It’s exciting because this is the first time Monster Cereals has partnered with a movie,” adds McCullough.
On the back of the box, you’ll find The Addams Family trick-or-treating at the Monsters’ castle. But some things are not quite right. Can you find all 8 tricky mistakes?
Awesome! It looks like just the big three cereals this year. Frute Brute and Yummy Mummy fans will have to cross their fingers for 2020.
The cereals hit shelves in September. The Addams Family movie premieres October 11.
Yum! My favorite time of year. I don’t eat a ton of cereal anymore, but I always make an exception come September/October. Frankenberry, in particular, takes me zooming back to to my childhood.
