I have always loved the Boo Berry and Franken Berry cereals. They are hard to find. I buy them when I see them though.

You can buy a case around Halloween at Wal Mart or Target but it is not the same cereal we had as kids. The cereal is now corn based and not oat based. It is not nearly as good.

Except for Count Chocula, neither my mother nor I could ever find them. They were advertised very heavily during late afternoon kid's programming back in the Seventies. I did eventually find Count Chocula and tried it. Till I was an adult many years later, I could not find the other Monster cereals.

It's a shame how every cereal we have grown up with has changed. Well I guess shredded wheat is still shredded wheat, but Boo-Berry and Count Chocula use to be so good. No wonder kids are so sad these days.

A poor replica of the once terrific cereal that I loved as a kid. Too bad they had to mess it up. It's time to pull the plug on it, and let it pass into history. That would give them more resources to create some possibly decent cereal, for a change.

New formula tastes like styrofoam. Change it back to its original formula using oats. And while you're at it, change the box art back as well.

I'm sure Boo Berry tastes much different now than it did in the '70s, but it's still my favorite of the monster cereals (next to Frute Brute) and considering it's the only "blueberry" flavored cereal I've even found, I can't be too harsh on it.

Terrible! I bought a box of this and Count Chocula a few weeks ago, wanting to capture a taste of long ago. It was tasteless. Someone making 6 figures thought he would save the company money I'm sure. Well, you lost my business and everyone else I know. Bad idea. Change it back and I'll buy General Mills products again.

While the flavor is indeed worse in the revived Monster cereals, the thing I noticed the most was the texture. Changing the cereal parts to corn from oat (mentioned also by another poster), ruined the consistency of the cereal. One bite was all it took; I didn't even finish the bowl. This was my favorite cereal growing up (I liked them all, even Fruity Mummy, but Boo-Berry was always my first choice), and it's a shame that they don't make it like they used to. It's absolutely terrible now.

Wow!!! :( How did they take the greatest cereals of all time and turn them to garbage and still label and market them as if they actually have any quality worth wasting one penny on? What once tasted like blueberry now tastes exactly the same as the strawberry which tastes exactly like the chocolate. All the monster cereals taste the same. If I close my eyes I couldn't tell which one I was eating. All of them are flavorless and the milk doesn't even change to match the color of the cereal like it used to. This is an insult to the past memories of this ill fated block buster cereal.. I was embarrassed having my girlfriend try these cereals after I basically praised theses cereals as gods of Saturday morning cartoons... shut down manufacturing and don't waste the world's time any longer! What lunatic took over and thought this would be unnoticed... totally unacceptable. .. period.

The comments here are correct. Boo Berry, these days, is like eating Styrofoam. No taste... the cereal melts before you can taste it. It wasn't that way "back in the day".

I just don't understand what you have to do to get through to a company to get Boo Berry back on the shelf all the time. Obviously the people are begging for it so why wouldn't they want to sell it all the time, except at the time of Halloween! Hello... wake up and smell the Boo Berry. If something is in demand, produce it!

The reason the Monster cereals taste different is that they are now corn based instead of oat based. General Mills please bring back the oat based cereal that we all love. If Lucky Charms can still be oat based why can't the Monster cereals?

Nope. I got 2 boxes of Boo Berry and was excited to have my old love back. I took a few bites and it was hard to finish. It's tasteless, nothing like it was when I was a kid in the 70's. Nothing at all. Seriously, bring the original Boo Berry back. I have a box of Count Chocula and I'm scared to open it. I really don't want to be disappointed with that one too. I'm going to toss my two boxes of Boo Berry. What a shame. :(

Has anyone ever tried mixing Boo Berry and Frankenberry in the same bowl? And if so, what color did the milk turn? (Purple?) I'd love to try that myself but the GM cereals aren't available in Belgium.

Bought Boo Berry and Franken Berry at Target. My kids love them. They do not like the images on the boxes though. They prefer the old characters better. Better hurry as Target did not have a lot left.

You have to love the late 60's and early 70's. I mean the cereal companies proudly and unapologetically promoted sugar, marshmallows, pure artificial color and the addictive artificial berry taste; hey "fuggetaboutit"!

I no longer eat this since I've become more health conscious about the cereals I eat... But I will say this, it's like sugary, berry crack as I could finish a box and a half day back in college. I try to stay from the cereal aisle when its available, lol.

Definitely the weakest of the "monster cereals". I never much liked it and prefer Count Chocula. I don't think blueberry and grape are good cereal flavors (Sir Grapefellow). Also, has anyone noticed that the taste of Frankenberry is more artificial and nowhere near as good?

If you live in El Paso don't waste your time in Walmart - go to Target - it's more likely to be found there. I finally got the last 5 boxes and I'm very happy.

We have learned from General Mills that "Boo Berry" (blueberry-flavoured), "Count Chocula" (chocolate-flavoured), and "Franken Berry" (strawberry-flavoured) are finally returning to grocery stores and other fine retailers anywhere across the whole nation around 2011, and almost every year, they'll be available between late August and early December. The 12 spooky-fun marshmallow shapes will be contained in all three Monster-themed breakfast cereals, except that they come in each flavor, just like the corn cereal pieces are in that same shape of each one.

General Mills' "Monster Triple Pack" breakfast cereal will be finally available in fewer U.S. retailers nationwide - including Walmart, Target, Costco, and a couple of others. It will contain three bags of different Monster-themed breakfast cereals, and will also be available between late August and early December every year.

Wanted to let my fellow Boo Berry, Franken Berry, & Count Chocula fans know that all 3 cereals ARE STILL AVAILABLE to buy from Amazon as well as a number of other websites!!! It's very cool to be able to enjoy a classic cereal that still tastes the same as it did when I was a kid.

I agree w/Dee: this cereal should be sold year round. Where else on the market can you find a cereal flavored with BLUEBERRY THROUGHOUT? (though granted the flavors are almost exclusively artificial, but STILL! *lol*) I remember being so crazy about count chocula, franken and boo berry that I called General Mills, asking if it were possible to order these cereals directly from THEM (as they were nowhere to be found in ANY store in my area). I was informed the only way they could do so was via wholesale order. IOW, I had to order it BY THE CASE! Which I considered it a possibility...until they quoted me the prices. Holy Christ!!! They were going to charge me about the same as retail PER UNIT if not more! Luckily, I wasn't the only one to demand to see more of this cereal, because they're a bit easier to find nowadays.
