Yay childhood!

I was cruising the new Amazon Grocery Store for a future blog entry idea I had, when I stumbled across something…

BOO BERRY!!!!!!!!


For those unfamiliar with the wonders of Boo Berry, it was introduced in 1975 with Frankenberry, Count Chocula and Fruit Brute. Fanken and Count met with decent success, but Boo Berry and Fruit Brute stumbled, but Boo Berry kept just enough sales to say active. In 1983, General Mills discontinued Fruit Brute, but kept Boo Berry around in limited production. (the last of the “Monster Cereals” was Yummy Mummy, who popped up in 1974 and again in 1988)

Over the past few years, finding Boo Berry has been a chore. Sometimes Hy-Vee would have it, but it looks like they’ve dropped it now. Wal-Mart suddenly has it, but never count on them restocking anything. I have no clue how long Amazon will have him in stock, but if I wasn’t trying to lose weight right now, I would’ve already placed my order darn it!
