I can't be the only one who remembers "Boo Berry" cereal, can I? It was briefly part of the cereal monster family that included Frankenberry and my personal favorite -- Count Chocula. I don't remember what it tasted like, but I remember the commercials where the little blue ghost talked like Bing Crosby. No lie.

LOL - remember the name, but not the commercial. One can never get enough blue foods, eh?

I hated that cereal, and part of it was the creepiness...

They have the Frankenberry at Halloween time at my grocery store..I'm tempted to buy it to see if it tastes as bad as I remember

i'd see it on the shelves, but we were a corn~flake, granola, raisin bran family...that is, when we did have cereal. oh! and honey~nut~cheerios came out right at the end of my childhood, so if we had the extra bucks, mom would let us get that! grins, debra

I always thought of him as kind of like Scrappy Doo. There was always Frankenberry and Count Chocula and then this dude shows up.

marshmallow ghosts, right? I have always hated cereal, but my mom did buy it for my siblings.

It wasn't good--I didn't like Frankenberry, either--but I loved Count Chocula. I tried a bite of some kid's a few years ago, though, and it was gross, too! How the palate can change!
