When talking about General Mills’ seasonal “Monster Cereals,” most only ever really talk about Count Chocula, Franken Berry and Boo Berry – they’re not just the original three, but the only three that return every Halloween season. The runts of the litter, as much as it pains me to call them that, are Fruit Brute and Yummy Mummy, who never quite caught on.
But we love them all the same. In fact, we may love them even more – after all, the runts are always the cutest. And that’s why we’re so excited to see that Funko has just added both Fruit Brute and Yummy Mummy to the “Monster Cereals” wave of POP! vinyl toys! Fruit Brute is clutching a spoon for his POP! vinyl debut, while Yummy Mummy is literally eating Yummy Mummy. Is that cannibalism?
The good news is that they exist. The bad news? Both toys are limited to just 2,500 pieces and sold exclusively in a two-pack bundle for Funko-Shop.com. The even worse news? The bundle already sold out before I could write this post.
I’ll see ya over on eBay, fellow Monster Cereal fanatics.
