I remember Fruit Brute when I was a kid, I guess it lasted a few years then got discontinued and a few years after that they introduced the Yummy Mummy (which I honestly had never seen before this month) as a replacement.

Target is the exclusive seller of the classic boxes apparently but you can et the cereals this month in regular grocery stores in their newer packaging.

Yeah, I saw all the newer boxes at the store the last time I went grocery shopping. I didn't buy any of them. Is count chocula as bad as other chocolate cereal? Cos I remember cocoa crispier being pretty terrible, and cocoa puffs were ok despite the fact that they only kind of tasted like chocolate.

The twist with Count Chocula is that it has marshmallows in it

The marshmallows are really the saving grace of the cereal. I really love Cocoa Krispies and the like but Count Chocula is weak as fuck flavor-wise.

Those marshmallows are great, though. I am a big chocolate cereal hater, fwiw.

Yeah as my youthful self recalls (keep your wisecracks to a minimum please) these cereals were all about the marshmallows.

I did think s'mores flavor candy corn seemed like a good idea, and it was. But eating half the bag was a bad idea.

I used to be obsessed with my Count Chocula doll I had in the late 70's. I think my mom sent in the box tops or something like that. I wish I still had that thing.....

this is either the same thing or similar. It says it's from 1973 so that's before my time but I definitely had something like this by the late 70's early 80's.

Wow.

I wonder if I still have some of my brand name send-away toys. I'll have to look around. I have some from my kids' time (early 90's), but I should check if I do still have anything from the 60s!

I had to email and cancel my silicone mask today I ordered on the 6th and they still hadn't shipped it. I get that they make them to order, but that's sort of ridiculous. I even noted that I needed it by the 25th and they said that was fine. No way it would make it from the UK to Canada in a week. BAH! Now I have to change ideas

Are you sure it wouldn't have made it? If it was on their end that it was going to be here by the 25th, I would think that there are faster shipping methods than the "cheap" one.
