General Mills Monster Cereal Giveaway


Ahhhh, cereal....one of my favorite things to eat. And yes, as an adult I still LOVE Count Chocula. In fact, I sometimes hide it from the girls. I remember eating this long, long ago.

Through October 31st you can pick up Boo Berry, Franken Berry and Count Chocula at Target stores.
Count Chocula®, Boo Berry® and Franken Berry® cereal combine chocolate, blueberry and strawberry flavored cereal with colorful marshmallow shapes that kids and adults enjoy. Each serving of the playful, monster-themed cereal is low in fat with no cholesterol or saturated fat, providing a good source of calcium, whole grain and nine other essential vitamins and minerals.

You can also go to www.grocerysavvy.com, where you can view the fun "Let´s Go Disco" video and download a desktop background of your favorite Monsters character.

I was given the prize pack pictured above plus a $10 Target gift card to purchase Halloween treats from General Mills through MyBlogSpark. In addition one lucky reader will get the same prize pack.

To enter: Leave a comment about your favorite childhood cereal.

Entries will be taken until Monday, October 18th at noon CST. At that time I will post the winner and you will have 48 hours to get back to me with your mailing information or a new winner will be picked.

I remember there was a super mario brothers cereal that was really cool. I always liked it but it was hard to get my mom to buy it. I've always <3'd cinnamon toast crunch, too.

Manina said...

Ha! I totally forgot about those cereals. Those were definitely favorites. The other cereals I loved were mostly the same as we have now...Lucky Charms of course! :)

I was the odd kid who didn't like sugarly cereals - my favorite has always been Cheerios.

I think I was the weirdest kid ever, but aside from Frosted Mini Wheats, (which my mom NEVER bought), my favorite was actually Wheaties (which she happily bought)

My favorite cereal was and still is Cheerios. I ate them for breakfast as a kid but now they are my favorite snack to have rather than eating them for breakfast.

I loved Captain Crunch when I was growing up, but usually only got it when I spent the night with a friend because my parents made us eat "healthy" cereal.

My mom would let us pick out a box of cereal for our special treat once a month and we LOVED it

Janelle said...

When I was little, I absolutely loved Freakies cereal! In fact, to this day I still have two Freakies magnets on my refrigerator - I cherish those little guys!! :-)

I LOVED Boo Berry! My mom said that I liked it because it was too hard to find and I was just being difficult.

GROWING UP AS A KID, YOU WERE LUCKY TO EVEN GET TO TASTE THE CEREAL THAT WAS AVAILABLE. IN A HOUSEHOLD WITH SIX KIDS WE WOULD FIGHT FOR THE PRIZES INSIDE OR WHO WAS GOING TO EAT THE FREE CANDY. WE LOVED FRUITY PEBBLES, SUGAR BEAR PUFFS, AND COCOA PUFFS. BUT IT WAS LIKE A CONTEST FIRST COME FIRST SERVE. IF YOU DIDNT GET UP EARLY ENOUGH TO GET A BOWL YOU HAD TO EAT EGG OR WHATEVER WAS MADE THAT MORNING. NOW THAT WE ARE GROWN WE BUY OUR OWN CEREALS. BUT WHEN IT COMES TO HOLIDAYS AND EVERYONE IS OVER IT DEJAVUE ALL OVER AGAIN.

We usually were not allowed to get the sugary cereals but every now & then got to have Capn Crunch. I remember eating so much of it the roof of my mouth would get sore it was so crunchy.

We didn't have anything very exciting usually, but we occasionally had frosted flakes and loved those as a treat!

My favorite has got to be Lucky Charms. I have always been a HUGE fan. It still tastes great to this day.

I loved Life cereal!

I LOVED Trix!! It was a rare treat though as my mom usually bought Cheerios and Kix, but I loved those too. I remember when Trix was actually different shapes. My husband and I bought some Trix a couple years ago and were pretty bummed that they were all the same round shape now, lol!
