THEY'RE BACK

OMG! I was totally thinking about these the other day and how I wished they still made them. These were the best, back in the day when I was a kid.

So you can imagine how excited I was when I saw them in Target! YES, so excited that I had to buy ALL 3! Luckily they were only $1.99 per box!


Do you remember these? YUM!!

What are you missing from your childhood, that you wish they would bring back?

kys said...

**grabs keys to rushes off to Target**

As though I needed another excuse to go to Target. Had no idea they were there!!! How fun! Thanks!!

Eyeglasses & Endzones said...

Once per year I allow my kids to be crazily addicted to sugar cereal...if not only for the Franken Berry and Boo Berry...I MIX THEM TOGETHER!!! Yummo!

Evonne said...

Time for me to be the black sheep - I've never had any of those! From what I've been told, they only come out for Halloween. Maybe I should run to Target and get some.

Not that I need an excuse to run to Target - it's my home away from home!

Mighty M said...

I've gotta get some!!! :-)

Amy said...

Those look yummy. What do I want from my childhood not to have a worry in the world. To just get up and play and have fun...

Kimi said...

Seriously my kids NEED those cereals. I miss the good old cartoons, like Snorks. I loved those little guys. And the gum that looked like crayons. Genius.

Sheila Rae said...

My sister loves those. I will have to get her some, put them away for Christmas.. LOL

Lee the Hot Flash Queen said...

This is totally going to show my age...but I was listening to the radio in the car this morning and they were talking about Mel's Diner..the show..and made me realize how I miss all those great sitcoms from back in the day!

thatgirlblogs said...

just bought the frankenberry fruit roll ups yesterday...

Lisa Anne said...

I miss strawberry shortcake dolls and the way they smelled. I think they still sell them but they are not the same.

Kristin said...

No joke joke...I bought four boxes the other day. And I REALLY wish they would bring back Jello Pudding Pops!!

One Cluttered Brain said...

WOW! I remember those cereals too.

I miss the Smurf cartoons, He-man and She-ra, MASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE..yeh yeh you remember...

And all 80's songs. Sometimes I wish that's all anybody played.

"You gotta fight, for your right, to P A R T Y!!!!!"

Emmy said...

It is funny all of the things that were popular when we were little that are coming back now. I guess they aren't stupid, they know us silly parents with our nostalgia will run out and by it for our kids (or ourselves) because it is what we had. But like in your comment above, they have changed a lot of the things so they aren't quite right.

InspiredDreamer said...

Hey Lisa, stopping by from SITS! We just had a "cereal day" at work and someone brought those in. Too fun. I think they always come out around Halloween actually. Nothing like special edition cereals. :)

Have an Extraordinary Day!

Lan Nguyen said...

It's always awesome finding stuff from your childhood! All my fave cereals from when I was a kid are still around. What I miss are the 80s cartoons!

Tamela said...

My roommate in college lived off of count chocula!

Susan Crabtree said...

omg-loved count chocula as a kid but of course my mom would never let me have it! of course, it made me want it that much more & I would have to sneak it over at my best friends house! how fun would it be to get all of the junk food from childhood & have a pajama party with friends?

kimert said...

I saw those in the store this week. I'm not a cereal fan but did consider buying them for the kids! LOL

I miss good ol' classic Saturday morning cartoons!

natalee said...

OMG BOO BERRY!!!!!!!! I am going to Target my kids have to have these!!!! ( Im a bad mom i also expose them to pixie sticks and strawbetty yohoo..lol

Samantha said...

I've seen these in every grocery store I've been into this past week :) Ahh, I miss everything from childhood :(

stopping by from Apple Juice & Milk...come visit me sometime http://applejuiceandmilk.blogspot.com

Tater Tot Mom said...

Okay, I'll have to admit that as a kid, my parents never let me get sugary cereal (slave drivers! just kidding). I remember going over to spend the night at friend's houses though and getting to eat their cereal for breakfast. Boo Berry was the best...and don't forget the Smurf Berry cereal!

I miss playing with dolls, and the barbie head where you could do her hair, and double dutch, and those hand slapping games, "Cinderella dressed in yella went upstairs to kiss her fella..."

Nikki said...

Mmmmm loved that count chocola!!!! I'm off the store later, I'll have to pick some up, you're totally right, its like a blast from childhood!

MiMi said...

I saw these in the grocery store the other day and I squealed out lout, I was so excited!

Lisa Anne said...

made a mistake and kissed a snake. LOL I totally remember all those. LOL

happy mama said...

I found them at target last year and bought about 5 boxes :) Haven't purchased any yet, but it is bound to happen!

What do I want to come back from my childhood? Jem and the Holograms! LOVED IT!

I remember Strawberry Shortcake in this country! And Victoria Plum! I don't know if you have heard of them in America though!
There are loads of good memories of when I was a child though! I don't know where to start!

Trac~ said...

How funny! I remember how good these were when I was growing up - I may have to scour out my Target just to get some for the kids since Halloween is SO close now! :o) P.S. I LOL'd at your comment on my post this morning! HA!

Melissa said...

Oh too funny.... I just saw those in our local grocery store and thought about buying them... but then my kids were like ewww, we don't like them... WTF??? :-)

That One Mom said...

I gave The Girl my old Strawbeery Shortcake dolls and she was all like, "Wha?!?!? These dolls smell!" And I was like, "Doi! That's why they rock! Their pets smell too!" And I gave her the pink kitty, the turtle, and the bunny...

I loved childhood! And I TOTALLY torture my kids with things I grew up with!!!

shortmama said...

Not only is the cereal back but on the Spirit Halloween website they have the Halloween costumes too!

conquer The Monkey said...

funny, I have a friend - a 37 year old male, who is otherwise fairly normal. Every year when Count Chocula comes out he buys DOZENS, DOZENS AND DOZENS of boxes, he fills his ENTIRE pantry with JUST Count Chocula. If he catches you eating it, there is hell to pay, even his wife. He has a special bowl for it too. He will drive hundreds of miles to get more if the local market is out. It's a bit of a cult, or he's a bit of a freak :) hilarious.

E @ Scottsville said...

Oh cool!

Memories!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


So, this is just a feeling I have, but something tells me that you might just KINDA like my header, huh? {{giggle}}

sarah said...

Yaya said...

2 Toddlers and Me said...

I remember thinking blue cereal was so cool. And it turned the milk a great color too.

blueviolet said...

I love them! I still buy Count Chocula. That's my fave!

I thought I wanted to see King Vitamin again but they brought it back a few years ago and it was seriously the worst! Ptoooey!

Frugal Vicki said...

I completely forgot about these! I may have to head to target tonight!

TwoHeartsTogether said...

Those are awesome! I have never seen those! I think I might have to go pick them up and surprise Jeff LOL

Unknown Mami said...

Yup, I love those.

I miss Aspen soda.

Small House said...

My husband LOVES these. We buy them every year at Halloween. After Halloween they go on SALE-SALE at the grocery store,and we stock up.

Spyware blockers said...

There are many things that you can not get back. Like my Grandma.

business travel said...

Disney's cartoons. Those are great you have there.

Veronica said...

LOL, Count Chocula was the only cereal I would eat in college! I would have a big bowl of that and then a salad. Memories!

Rook No. 17 said...

I was so nuts for these cereals when I was a kid (probably because I was never allowed to have them). My husband bought a box of each for our girls this year, and it brought back so many memories! I'd have to say that Frankeberry is my fav! As far as things making a comeback, I wish that crackerjacks would do a limited edition; even if it was only once a year, where they put a decent toy in the box like the old days! The cute little charms were what made eating the burnt tasting molasses popcorn worthwile!
