After what felt like months of visiting every Target store in a 50-mile radius — only to have my hopes of finding the General Mills Monster Cereals in those amazing retro boxes dashed — today, I finally found ‘em.
I first heard about these over on Dinosaur Dracula, and immediately knew I’d need a stockpile of my own. The boxes are everything I hoped for and more. A minimal 70s design that consists of the cereal’s character, a brightly colored logo and a photo of the the cereal itself in a glass bowl.
Immediately after getting these home, I cracked open a box of Yummy Mummy — paired with some almond milk and I was immediately transported back to my childhood.
I don’t eat a lot of sweet cereals these days. To be honest, I don’t eat cereal very often at all. So my ‘HOLY HELL THIS IS SWEEEEET!’ meter may be a little out of whack, but even with all that cavity-causing goodness, I was in love…
In love with the taste-bud driven trip back to 1987.
