Countdown to Halloween 2013 Day 28: The Return of Frute Brute

I didn't spot the monster cereals at the local Wal-Mart Super Center until October 10th this year. They were on an endcap and had all five of the new boxes. I grabbed Frute Brute because I was looking more to his return than Yummy Mummy and I'm more partial to the werewolf. I figured I could pick that one up when I finished eating the Frute Brute cereal. It took my two weeks to finish the cherry flavor frosted cereal with spooky-fun marshmallows. Yeah, they didn't taste anywhere as good as I remembered them being when I was a kid. The local Wal-Mart Super Center still had a full endcap of the monster cereals on October 17th so I didn't pick any up since I still had half a box of Frute Brute. Big mistake for they were all gone when I returned to the store on October 24 (they weren't kidding when they said that they were only available for a limited time). I ended up getting Cap'n Crunch Halloween cereal instead (I still have half a box of that to finish). Anyway, here are scans of the return of Frute Brute cereal box:

I love the "Strange Things Happen Once In A Fruity Moon" cartoon on the back of the box:

The left side of the box has five Mega Monster Trivia questions (yikes, I only knew one):

Nutrition facts are on the right side of the box:

You can eat about half the box to get your recommended daily dose of whole grain:

The Frute Brute 2013 box is made out of 100% recycled paperboard:

I always liked the fact that the cherry flavored cereal is paw shaped. I should have taken pictures of all the cereal shapes but this was the only one that I didn't wolf down:
