A Delectable Trip Down Memory Lane
Harkening back to their debut in 1971, the Monster Cereals were instant favorites, capturing the imaginations of cereal lovers everywhere. Combining a ghoulish charm with mouthwatering flavors, they quickly became a staple in households across the nation. And now, with their revival, a new generation gets to savor the same enchantment that hooked their parents and grandparents.
A Creative Collaboration
The revival of these cherished cereals wouldn’t be complete without a touch of artistic flair. Enter Brian Donnelly, better known as KAWS, an American artist and monster enthusiast who boasts a staggering 4.2 million followers on Instagram. According to General Mills, KAWS drew inspiration from the original vintage designs that graced the cereal boxes of yesteryears. But he didn’t stop at designing just the boxes – KAWS has also masterminded collectible cereal prizes for each monster, creating an irresistible blend of nostalgia and contemporary creativity.
“I’ve been a big fan of the cereals since I was a kid,” KAWS shared. “Even now, I love the original box designs and the creativity and imagination they invoke.”
As if the return of these iconic cereals wasn’t exciting enough, General Mills has added an extra layer of thrill to the mix. Limited-edition releases of the four Monster Cereal boxes, all uniquely designed by KAWS, come with the exciting possibility of winning a toy prize.
