General Mills
Yummy Mummy

Yummy Mummy From: General Mills
Introduced in 1988

Yummy Mummy was a "fruit flavor frosted cereal with vanilla flavor marshmallows". The yellow marshmallow pieces seemed to resemble the shape of a head. On some of the cereal boxes, they were referred to as "monster mallows". The other cereal pieces were red and orange. They may have also been intended to resemble heads, but the primarily circular nuggets with two slits in the center looked more like colorful little pig snouts.

Yummy Mummy cereal was the last of the General Mills monster-themed cereals to be introduced. The cereals began with Count Chocula and Franken Berry in 1971. Boo Berry and Fruit Brute came out in 1973 and 1974, receptively. Then more than a decade later in 1988, Yummy Mummy appeared. Shortly after it's introduction, the name of cereal was elongated to Fruity Yummy Mummy.

While most cereal enthusiasts group Yummy Mummy with the other monster cereals, Cereal Mascot Expert Topher Ellis notes that General Mills never officially declared Yummy Mummy to be part it's monster cereal collection. At, we've opted include Yummy Mummy in the monster cereal classification. Yummy Mummy was advertised in commercials with Franken Berry and Count Chocula. The boxes of all five monster-themed cereals shared many similar characteristics.

Unfortunately, Yummy Mummy had the shortest life of any it's monster associates. The cereal only lasted until the early nineties.

    The mascot for Yummy Mummy (later Fruity Yummy Mummy) cereal was a colorful, unraveling mummy called Yummy Mummy.

    In commercials, he had a deep, froggy voice. His jingle featured the lyrics, "Fruity Yummy Mummy makes your tummy feel yummy!"

    Okay cereal but really could use some more flavor. It seems kind of bland.

    Found a box at Walgreen's. Not too bad. But I still prefer the oat based cereal. I can't find any of the monster cereals at Target or Wal Mart. Looked all over the store. Kmart has them though.

    FYM is back! It tastes just like I remember it so at least to me it is the original flavor.

    I would say that Yummy Mummy was definitely a monster cereal since Count Chocula and Franken Berry were in the commercial. By the way, both Fruity Yummy Mummy and Frute Brute have been re-released by General Mills for the 2013 Halloween Season. It's not the original recipes but still a fun trip down memory lane. Check Target for the retro boxes of all five monster cereals!

    Yummy Mummy is back this Halloween along with Fruit Brute. All 5 monster cereals together again. Now make them in the oat based form.

    I would definitely buy a case of Yummy Mummy! It's tough for me to find any monster cereal where I live in Baltimore, MD.

    I thought Fruit Brute tasted better than Yummy Mummy. I would buy both if they ever decided to release them.

    General Mills absolutely DID say that Yummy Mummy WAS a Monster Cereal. Every box said so on the bottom flap 'Monster Cereal' and every box from series 1 thru 5 showed the other monsters introducing themselves on the back panel. Yummy Mummy is and always was a Monster Cereal.
