General Mills has announced the return of its legendary Fruit Brute and Yummy Mummy cereals, two products that have been banished to their breakfast-y crypts for decades. This Halloween, both cereals will be on-sale alongside the traditional cereal monsters Count Chocula, Franken Berry and Boo Berry.

Fruit Brute, a Froot Loop-y cereal with fake-lime-flavored fake-marshmallows, was discontinued back in 1983. It was replaced five years later by Yummy Mummy, which was almost exactly the same thing but with fake-vanilla-flavored fake-marshmallows, and whose curse was lifted from the cereal aisle in 1993. But even the big guys are having a tough time of it; since 2010, GM only sells Chocula, Franken Berry and Boo Berry during Halloween. But this year, all five will be on-sale together for the first time ever (Target will even have retro-packaging, seen above).


Remember, these heavily sugared horrors are a terrifying part of a complete breakfast, meaning you can technically eat them at breakfast, but you should probably also eat things with actual nutritional value, too.
