Greetings, geek fans! Time to tackle the last of the monster cereals, Boo Berry. Boo Berry is a ghost, who for some reason is able to wear a hat and bow tie. I can’t imagine why a ghost needs clothes, but as this is a cereal mascot, I don’t think I’ll devote too much time to solving the mystery. Let the geeks begin!
For the final time, let’s start with the box. Unlike the other two, I somehow got a different version. There’s no, “we’re alive!”, which is good, since not a single one of them is a living thing. On the normal box, Boo Berry castle is basic. Strictly moonlight and nothing else. I like that minimalist look. Granted, it is still just a blue pallet swap of the others. I’ll take what I can get at this point.
Now, on to the cereal. The cereal pieces are berry flavored ghosts. The marshmallows are bats and such. The cereal itself reminds me of Berry Kix. I used to love that cereal. Finally got used to a non-frosted cereal with marshmallows. Similar to Chocula, and Frankenberry, it was like a berry version of Lucky Charms. Can’t decide if this one, or Frankenberry was my favorite of the three. I just know that Chocula was the bottom. I asked Frankenberry. He confirmed it.
My overall impression – It did get the milk nice and berry flavored, and turned it purple. Again, a fun trip down memory lane. Glad the season of this cereal is over. I think I’ll be good on this for a while. Until next time, stay geeky, and keep gabbing!
