    Fruite brute(monster ceareal)

    Has anyone tried the target rerelease yet?< How does it compare to the original?

    I tried it(for the first time in history) and I love it.

    I never had it when I was a kid. Never saw it either. But I thought it was okay.

    I liked it a LOT more than Yummy Mummy, I'll say that much. The nostalgia in me thought "Awesome! Yummy Mummy!!!" Then I had it and it brought back memories of it... not being so great. I understand why it got the boot.

    But they are all still a lot of fun for the holidays!

    I got all 5 boxes and Fruit Brute was the best!

    It was kinda cool to see these boxes again after all these years...

    I picked it up at the grocer. It's great, but I don't recall the original since I wasn't born yet as I recall.

    but I do mix it up with count Chocula.

    Hmmmm! Never thought about mixing up different monster cereals. This opens a whole other door!

    I preferred Yummy Mummy. I thought it had a bit more of a unique flavor. Fruit Bruit just tasted like other fruit cereals I've tried.

    Someone once told me they did that with Chocula and Booberry. I am bad about seeing the cereals and planning on picking them up on my next trip, when I saw Fruit Brute was out this year I decided to try it and quite like the mix.

    I looked at the dates I probably did have Fruit Brute as a kid, I just remember the main three. It could be the one I remember always wanting but they rarely had my memory is shoddy since I was like four at the time.

    The original cereals were Boo Berry,Count Chockula,Frankenberry & Fruit Brute and Yummy Mummy was in the 1990's

    I remember because I was 5-6....

    I've eaten so much monster cereal this year!!!

    So far I've eaten and reviewed Boo Berry and Franken Berry. I just started eating Fruity Yummy Mummy last night to begin working on the review and I can say that in all honesty, it might be my favorite breakfast cereal. Ever. Prior to this it, it was an older cereal called hidden treasures. Fruity Yummy Mummy massacres hidden treasures. It's just so good!

    I'm a big fan of Orange Cream, so Fruity Yummy Mummy was a pleasant surprise. I loved it!

    Fruit Brute is pretty great as well.

    But at the end of the day, I think Franken Berry is still my favorite of the Monster Cereals.

    I'm a health food nut, but I may just have to try Fruit Brute now!

    As a kid I always loved Boo-Berry, however, I was always ticked that they never featured him in the commercials! He was good enough to be on the grocery shelves, but not on TV!?!? Boo-Berry love!

    I religiously eat Boo Berry and Franken Berry. I love them even though I have to "stock up" during the fall every year ever since GM stopped making them year long. Last year I bought about 10 boxes each and just rationed them over the next 6 months.

    It's strange how in some areas you couldn't find these cereals for years and in other areas they never disappeared until GM stopped producing them year round in 2010. I have a friend who lives on the east coast and I used to ship Boo Barry, and Quisp, to him all the time in the mail since one grocer here still carried it all year long. It was great until that grocery line closed down in 2006.
