I can't find booberry this year like in Halloween's past.

Check Target.  I got some by the county airport.

Walgreen's has the Halloween cereals too, $3 a box.

Were fruit brute and yummy mummy really classic cereals? I NEVER heard of those before this year. They both seem pretty close to frankenberry.

Chocolate Cheerios, while an abomination against nature, taste pretty good.

Negatory on fruit brute and yummy mummy.  Only Frankenberry, Booberry and Count Chocula are vintage. 

Is Frankenberry about?  Anyone wanna mail some in exchange for some pemmican (or cash)?

All five are actually vintage.  Maybe your memory is failing you old-timer.   ;)

"In October 1971, the first two cereals in the line were introduced, Count Chocula (originally called "Dr. Count Chocula") and the strawberry-flavored Franken Berry. In February 1972, Franken Berry cereal included dye that turned some children's feces pink due to an inability to break down the heavily dyed breakfast food, a symptom sometimes referred to as "Frankenberry Stool."Boo Berry, reputedly the first blueberry-flavored cereal, was released in 1973, and Fruit Brute the following year. Fruit Brute was discontinued by 1984 and replaced in 1987 by Fruity Yummy Mummy, which also had a short life as it was discontinued in 1993."

BAh, Amerikan company no release in Canada.  Racists. 

That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

Stoltz, yes; Pulp Fiction, no. It's a rare still from The Big Lebowski. Stoltz was originally cast as Jeff Lebowski and shot many scenes as The Dude before the filmmakers decided to go in a different direction and recasted the role with Jeff Bridges.

I don't remember Fruit Brute at all.  You'd think there'd have been commercials.  Maybe it was a regional release.

One of the "new" old cereals is made up this year for the first time and was voted on iirc...  The others were brought back, and frankenberry, booberry, and chocula, come back as they do every year.

No, as stated above all five have been in market for 5-6 years or more.  The Count, Frank, and Blue have been in mainline distribution for decades.  The other two have been out of market for a long time, but were brought back just this year.  They will stay around if sales are strong enough, which is to say you won't see them again by Christmas.

I remember getting Fruity Yummy Mummy back in the day.

Last time I had a monster cereals it just seemed like sugar, air and food coloring. Maybe it always it was.
