I swear.. it's like I'm seven years old again staring up at these cereal boxes! I bought all five varieties of cereal, and I'm sure I'll be back for more before they are gone for yet another year.
I've already tried the new Fruity Yummy Mummy, so as soon as I got home, I decided to crack open a box of the new Frute Brute to see what General Mills was now throwing down. I call them new because while the art on the boxes are original reproductions.. the flavors are not.
The new Cherry flavored Frute Brute cereal with marshmallows
I honestly can't remember ever eating a cherry flavored cereal, and I enjoyed the experience immensely. It's nothing like the original Frute Brute, and honestly.. fruit flavored cereals flavors like that have been done to death. While I'm usually a fan of the old in many aspects of life, I'm totally on board with the two new flavors. It was nice to see General Mills come up with two completely new and unique flavors this time around.
I guess the only thing more I would have liked to see, are some re-issues of some of the great in-box monster cereal prizes I collected as a kid. However, I realize beggars can't be choosy, so I will just relish in the moments when I feel like a kid again, as I stare at these retro boxes while I eat my monster cereal (as part of a nutritious breakfast of course).
