Fright Appetite

As I walked through the grocery store today, I noticed to my delight the old familiar faces (although in newly designed boxes) of Boo Berry and Franken Berry cereals joining Count Chocula on the shelf. 
These characters, once staples of my youth, are now relegated to an annual one month Halloween novelty display.
And just like that, I longed for those days when Elvira's Movie Macabre filled my Friday nights and monsters were a welcomed addition around the breakfast table.


  1. GAWD. Now I eat some terrifying high-fiber shredded bark that comes in a brown box with pictures of wheat and smiling old people on it.


  2. My fave is Boo Berry! Still love it and get excited to see it hit the shelves each fall. I had forgotten all about Elvira until just now. I too sat around with my bro and sis / friends and watched those freaky shows!

    Love your blog...keep it up!

    P.S. Hi Gus!

  3. Erin, the box people can't be that old if they still have teeth to eat that high fiber stuff- it's like tree bark-

    Thanks, cd1717, and BTW- Elvira still looks good!
