Friday Question: Halloween Food

If you grew up eating these, you know the excitement of seeing the monsters on a box, even as an adult today.

It's just good fun.

If you had these Monster Cereals in front of you, which would you open first?

For me, Franken Berry.  No contest.

Last night I surprised Tim with all three boxes, and he opened Count Chocula first.  Now, in his version of the story, he'll say that I tricked him into eating a big honkin' garden salad before he ate a HUGE bowl of Count Chocula.

But on my side of the story, which is the true side of the story, I didn't do that entirely on purpose.  Though I enjoyed that it worked out that way, especially when Tim asked ...

"If we had Count Chocula, why the hell did you make me eat that big salad?"

I said, "I didn't even realize it."

"I noticed you didn't eat a salad," he pointed out.

"Yeah," I said, "Because I knew we had cereal."

The photo is blurry because of Tim.

  1. I'd totally go with Count Chocula -- just because I liked his commercials best as a kid.

    1. For some reason, I can't remember the commercials. I'll google them.

  2. I loved all three as a kid, but if I had a choice, I'd have to go with Booberry.

  4. Count Chocula looks like he's been smoking a bit of weed.

  5. Never come across any of them. Assuming Count Chocula is chocolately, I would go for that one.

    1. They didn't make as big a hit as the other three. Not sure why?

  7. I never had them or my children. But I remember the commercials.
    Love the salad story... "because I knew we had cereal."
    To perfect.

  8. I've never tried any of t he bottom thrree. I'm hesitant to blow my cover by admitting this, but I like Franken Berry better than Count Chocula.

    Hope you've had a fabulous Halloween, HW. =)

  11. I must confess I've never had any of these. My Mom wouldn't buy them because they were too expensive and pure sugar.

    1. Did you ever get to try the Halloween Oreo? Tim bought another bag of those this past week.

      Happy Halloween and boogie boogie.

  12. The comment Debra left may as well have been written by me. I've never had any of these either growing up, and for the same reasons! And I haven't seen them here in years...YEARS.

    But if I could try one, it would be Franken Berry. No way would I have the chocolate one. Bleh...

    1. Another for Frankenberry, woohoo. But yeah, they are both of those things, still today. Well, not today, today. It's Sunday and they were on clearance at Aldi.

      Hope you had a spooky weekend.

  13. Gotta go with Boo Berry myself. Though Count Chocula is a close second. I remember eating Frute Brute as a kid, but I'm not sure about Yummy Mummy. I did get them last year when they brought them back.

    1. I didn't remember Frute Brute and Mummy until I googled for the trinity.

  14. Eating Boo Berry was like a religious experience to me when I was a kid. How lucky you both got to indulge! And yay for salad too. We got Count Chocula and Frankenberry here (which was a serious foodie miracle) but no Boo Berry. Boohoo for me!
