#GM Monster Cereal + #Target Gift Card #Giveaway #MyBlogSpark

I cannot express how blessed I feel to be asked to review so many great products. This is a particularly fun one because it brought me back to my youth! I remember as a kid waiting through the rest of the year for late September when these favorite cereals would come back for the holiday:
Oh boy was it ever a treat when my parents would let us get one! Count Chocula, FrankenBerry, and Boo Berry can often be found this time of year still, but Yummy Mummy, and Frute Brute have been gone for a while. But guess what?! Target is going back in time with exclusive retro packaging, AND they are re-introducing two throwback flavors: Fruity Yummy Mummy and Frute Brute!

And thanks to General Mills through MyBlogSpark I got the chance to try out some of these fine cereals and to share them with my family. AND I have a sweet deal to share with you, as well as a giveaway! Yipee!!! 

What is it and What is the DEAL?

Well, I guess I already told you what it is above-but to review, it is AWESOME retro cereals! And here is the deal, available exclusively at Target!

When you buy three (3) General Mills Monster Cereals in a single shopping trip at Target now through the end of the month (October 31, 2013), you’ll receive a free Monster Bash Magazine full of recipes, tips and tricks for you to have the creepiest, scariest, spookiest, most fun Halloween ever! 


Where can you get more information?
Check out this great website:
Or even just stop in at your local Target store and look for these cereals! 

What did we think?

Before I answer that, let me tell you what I got to review. 

I was so happy that we were sent 3 flavors of cereal: Boo Berry, Fruity Yummy Mummy and Frute Brute, as well as a $25 gift card to Target so I could go pick up some more cereal! 
I had all 5 of my kids, my husband and myself all taste test the cereal. I will say this-all were a hit, though everyone had their own favorite. And apparently our family is not super fond of Orange cream flavored cereal because the Fruity Yummy Mummy was the least favorite (though still liked). I liked Boo Berry best. Most of the kids liked the Frute Brute best, and my husband liked them all. He noted that they are particularly good cereals to put in milk then drink the milk after. I am not a fan of milk with cereal, but if you like to drink milk from the bowl after you eat the cereal, Wes says these are great cereals for that!
So, after I took all the pics for the review and was ready to write it, I went to work on a few things, came back in the kitchen and found my youngest sitting at the table having helped himself to more cereal. So, I set up the cereal in a way the camera could catch it and recorded this little video of what he thought:

I guess I don't need to tell you that he was a big fan of all of the cereals.
I am thinking the time frame to get these cereals is coming to a close, so you ought to run out and grab some at Target while you can-and grab that free magazine while you are at it.

My family loves to have "eye ball" soup (meatball soup) and hot apple cider Halloween night. We have the soup before Trick or Treating and the cider when we get home. :)

A great way to make an autumn floral arrangement is to use a small pie pumpkin with tthe top cut off as the vase.

Oh one tip I heard this year that we are going to try is to use glow sticks in the pumpkins instead of candles! I cannot wait to try it!
