Big G Monsters Cereals and Snacks - #PlatefullCoOp #retromonstercereal Review

The information and prize pack have been provided by General Mills through Platefull Co-Op. The opinions within this post are of my own and I was not influenced in any way. Please do your own research before purchasing products or using services. Your opinions and results may differ.


Halloween is my favorite time of year. I love seeing kids dressed in costume, going through haunted houses, and festive packaging on food products.

The Retro Monsters are back! Count Chocula, Boo Berry and Franken Berry cereals have once again hit the shelves at Target in their retro packaging and they’ve brought Monsters snack items for as well. Try Count Chocula Treats, Boo Berry Fruit Roll-Ups and Franken Berry Fruit Roll-Ups in special retro packaging, found exclusively at Target.


Unfortunately, there's not a Target anywhere near where I live. I've seen Big G Monsters Cereals available in local stores but not with the retro packaging, which includes cut-out masks on the back of the boxes. Aw, well.

I did get the chance to try the cereals and snacks, but darn near got attacked by my oldest daughter when she saw them. She wasn't even born when Big G Monsters Cereals came out but she was ecstatic over the nostalgic packaging. Just as I'm used to seeing them during Halloween every year, she is too. The cereals bring back good memories for us. And, of course, they taste pretty good too! Here's hoping that General Mills continues to bring them back every year.

For those not in the know, Big G Monsters Cereals are available in three flavors: Count Chocula, Boo Berry and Frankenberry.

The Monsters snacks are perfect as Halloween party munchies and for rewarding trick-or-treaters. This is the first we'd seen of them. Frankenberry Fruit Roll-Ups, Boo Berry Fruit Roll-Ups and Count Chocula Treats are packaged with Halloween themes and were a big hit with my kids.
