Count Chocula at Target!



I saw this yesterday at Target, pretty awesome. I guess it's for Halloween. If you haven't had them they're similar to Lucky Charms, but better - corn cereal bits and marshmallows. Here's the Wikipedia page about them.

"this person" being me? there's nothing wrong with finding joy in the small stuff.

John said...

I saw those in Target on Friday afternoon and was equally excited. Having been the lucky kid whose mother allowed any amount of sugar cereal, this took me straight back to my childhood.

i'm confused. what do you mean "for halloween"? they've been around for years. you can find them in the grocery store year round.

geez, wikipedia has everything!

I rarely see Count Chocula in stores, and I never seen Boo Berry or Frankenberry. Wikipedia says those two are only available at Halloween.

Actually wikipedia says they're more widespread near halloween, but that you can find them year-round in the midwest, which I can attest to.

Yeah, guess so. This is the most I've ever written about monster-themed breakfast cereals.

We're here in Columbus Ohio from London for a few days. Thankyou so much for the information! We were given a mission to retrieve some "Count Chocula" from the US - and we can now go to "Target", knowing that we know most, if not everything there is to be known about these exotic US cereals - and get some!
