1980s Franken Berry Box

The Monster Cereals are still going strong in most stores right now and should be for the rest of the month. While in some places you can get the cereal year round, for many it is seasonal in its availability. Which is a shame, this is great stuff and their was a time when you could get it at anytime. When you ask? Well just as recently as the 1980s. In the 1980s you could go into any supermarket and spot a box of Franken Berry like the one that John Gavula was kind enough to upload to Flickr. I remember this package because i loved the juxtaposition of the classic monster and the colorful mascot.
