|The retro versions of the Monster Cereals|
@kevinhunsperger & @my123cents
Growing up one of my favorite cereals was Count Chocula. To this day, it remains one of my favorites, but I like the old school version better with the chocolate bat-shaped marshmallows. But the Count and his band of merry cereal men are now in short supply. Since 2010, General Mills has only produced the Monster Cereals during the fall months.

Nutritionally, the Monster Cereals do little good for you. Basically, it's junk food. But in recent years General Mills cut sugar from 15 grams per serving to nine, which is a good start. That being said, dietitians are still concerned about the dyes the cereals contain and the lack of fiber. While I don't regularly feast on sugary cereals, I still maintain most things in moderation are still okay. I may have to try the Fruity versions this fall.
