Spook Spotter: Monster Mayhem

Big Scare spook spotter

It wouldn’t be Halloween without the Universal Studios Monsters and the General Mills Monster Cereals.  Therefore, today’s post is dedicated to these icons of the season.

The following does not constitute an endorsement of any product or retailer.   It is for information purposes only.

This year, there are a variety of Monster Cereals available.  The regular releases are available at most supermarkets, while Walmart has Family-sized boxes, and Target features boxes with exclusive artwork and a premium on the back of the box.  At Target, the boxes of Count Chocula, Boo-Berry, and Franken Berry all feature pieces of the Monsters’ Castle.  After you collect all of the boxes, you can glue the castle together.

Target is also carrying the extremely-delicious Count Chocula Treats this year.  CVS is another store that has them.  These are not widely available, so if you want them, get them as soon as you can.

Meanwhile, World Market is offering up Universal Monsters popcorn, candy bars, lollipops, and these vintage soda flavors.  The bottles feature Boris Karloff and Elsa Lanchester in their iconic roles, along with new takes on the famous slogans that appeared on the 1930s movie posters.  Even if the Bride soda features the slogan from the wrong film (“It Comes to Life” is from The Mummy), it is still awfully amazing to see these characters on pop bottles.  Share your World Market finds in the comments section below!
