Franken Berry, Boo Berry cereals back for Halloween

It may be hard to believe, but Halloween is just around the corner. To celebrate, General Mills is bringing back some of its classic cereal flavors and characters.

Because nothing says the holidays like getting nostalgic about your favorite childhood cereal. 

Franken Berry, with his strawberry fingernails and a strawberry-flavored frosted cereal with marshmallows, and Boo Berry, a berry-flavored frosted cereal with marshmallows, are returning to store shelves for a limited time. 

If you're a real monster cereal fan, you may remember Frute Brute and Yummy Mummy. The two flavors are coming back to life for the first time in 20 years.

Frute Brute is a cherry-flavored frosted cereal with marshmallows, characterized by a wolf-man with a severe underbite. Yummy Mummy is an orange-cream-flavored variety, also with marshmallows.

And then, of course, there's Count Chocula, who vants to celebrate Halloveen.  

Each flavor will be available nationwide by mid-September. The cereal boxes will feature the retro packaging at Target and have a suggested retail price of $2.50 for 9.6 ounces.
