Franken Berry / Count Chocula : Television Commercial : (1971)

Count Chocula and Franken Berry were both introduced in 1971. Boo Berry Cereal appeared in 1973 followed by Fruit Brute in 1974. Yummy Mummy appeared more than a decade later in 1988 - completing the the group known as the General Mills Monster Cereals.


The following description of Franken Berry is from 1972 marketing material promoting the cereal for Halloween:
"A spoonful of spooky fun in every bowl, Franken Berry is a whimsical way to start the day. Made with whole grain corn, Franken Berry combines strawberry-flavored cereal with colorful marshmallow shapes to create a delicious cereal that kids and adults can enjoy. Each serving of this playful, monster-themed cereal is low in fat with no cholesterol or saturated fat. It's also a good source of calcium, whole grain, and 9 other essential vitamins and minerals."
