When the mascot sounds like Peter Lorre, you know the cereal is unique

I'm sure everyone knows about Count Chocula, one of the most infamous cereals ever but some forget his friends Frankenberry and Boo Berry.  Boo Berry being one of the most elusive cereals with a strong cult following whose fans search high and low for the stuff.

Boo Berry is a cereal with a creepy cartoon ghost who in the commercials sounded like Peter Lorre and has gone from a creepy little ghoulie to a caspar lookalike and back again.  The main appeal is that it's like Lucky Charms, but instead of a regular oat flavor to the cereal and regular marshmellows, it's a blueberry cereal with blueberry marshmellows.  Now kids out here love chocolate and honey and corn flavored cereals, but BLUEBERRY?  It's an aquired taste to be sure, and didn't hook the masses but tto those who like it, it;s almost another food group that I'm glad I took a shot at thanks to the efforts of one Blade Braxton and his proclaimed love of the stuff, and with the Halloween season now blooming, grocery stores are carrying it again for a nice price of $2.00 a box!  Looking to budget?  Get Boo Berry!

One piece of advice is with any of the monster cereals, add a little sugar to it.  Yes it sounds strange to take a sugary cereal as it is and add MORE sugar but seriously, add a little and make it a real great experience.  For parents out there, don't worry too much about the content, yes these cereals are known for their sugar which prompted Count Chocula to tone down the sugar content at one point, they are at least fortified with plenty of good stuff like iron and vitamins so it's not the worst thing for kids to eat.

I plan on getting at least a couple more boxes of the stuff before the season is over and Boo Berry, well vanishes.

Cornered the market on blueberry flavored cereals with marshmellows. So good, no one bothered with another.
