Reuniting To Spread Diabetes This Halloween


Half a century ago, the General Mills company had a genius idea. Create a whole line of breakfast cereals inspired by the horror icons seen in classic Universal Monsters films.

A year later, the ghostly Boo-Berry and the werewolf Fruit Brute join the line. Finally, Yummy Mummy shows up in the ’80s. Now, all the cereal monsters are coming together for a special cereal called (what else?) Monster Mash.
