General Mills Cereal Spooky Tees Collection
General Mills Gets Horror Cereal Tees Collection
Fright-Rags has recently introduced the newest line of art to their merchandise collection. Recently, they paid homage to Rob Zombie’s 31, and John Carpenter Halloween, as well and Rob Zombie’s tribute to the beloved cult classic film.
Now, they are paying tribute to cereal brands through their Cereal Tees collection. That’s right; General Mills has earned their place on the merchandise marketplace.
Dress up Count Chocula, Franken Berry, and Boo Berry with limited edition box sets. Each one contains a ventilated mask, an exclusive shirt designed by Christopher Franchi, and a color-changing spoon, all packaged in a retro-style window box.
Several other shirts are available separately: tri-blend tees of each mascot, a shirt designed by Abrar Ajmal with all three characters, and baseball tees with vintage cereal box artwork. Each monster is also represented with a pair of socks featuring their respective cereal and marshmallow shapes.
The Horror genre is getting more and more attention as time goes on. At a time when Horror used to be considered taboo and had a very small cult following, now it’s becoming more widespread amongst society and movie-goers. Now, different companies are advertising through the Horror channel. We’ve recently talked about PETA, Chevrolet, and Woolite.
General Mills Monster cereals were first introduced in 1971. They are inspired by iconic Horror films including vampires and the Frankenstein Monster. The current cereals are Count Chocula, Franken Berry, and Boo Berry. The Count Chocula and Franken Berry designs are by George Carn, who also design the Trix Rabbit.
General Mills Monster-inspired cereals were introduced following the success of Lucky Charms. Other cereals introduced that were the less successful, were Fruit Brute and Fruity Yummy. Unfortunately, these were less than popular and were shortly discontinued. Today marks over 40 years that Count Chocula, Franken Berry, and Boo Berry have been around.
Fright-Rags currently have a collection of 10 t-shirt designs and three sock designs to choose from, and they plan to add more in the next few years. The General Mills Monsters collection is on sale now at Fright-Rags.com. All items are in stock except the masks, which will ship in mid-November.
