General Mills’ Monster Cereals Return In KAWS-Designed Boxes

General Mills’ beloved Franken Berry, Count Chocula, Boo-Berry and – for the first time in nearly a decade – Frute Brute Monster Cereals are back with the limited-edition release of four KAWS-designed boxes. 

Inspired by classic horror film characters, the Monster Cereals have been fan favorites for more than half a century and this year renowned American artist and Monster enthusiast KAWS was inspired by the vintage styling of the original boxes. In addition to the individual box designs, KAWS has also designed corresponding collectible cereal prizes of each character, which are available as a set of four via an on-pack sweepstakes. 

This year’s seasonal Monster debut is also marked by the return of Frute Brute, which joins the other monsters on shelves with its first appearance since 2013, as well as other spooky surprises to come later this fall. Frute Brute is known for its “howlin’-good taste of fruit” and is considered by many collectors to be the most sought-after vintage cereal, in part due to its appearances across various blockbuster movies in the 1990s. 

Franken Berry, Count Chocula, Boo-Berry and Frute Brute Monster Cereals boxes are available now at retailers nationwide. Each Monster Cereals box comes with a unique code on the back that fans can enter on www.kawsmonsters.com for a chance to win a set of the highly coveted KAWS-designed collectible prizes. 

For additional Monster Cereals news later this season and a few more surprises, fans can follow KAWS (@kaws) and General Mills’ Cereal Society (@generalmillscereal).
