Now another big update is Target will release all 5 in the original retro boxes for Halloween as well. After almost 30 years people have gotten there wish for the two cereals to come back and now collectors can get on with retro boxes to put with the collection



Frute Brute was discontinued in 1982, after an eight-year run. It is considered by many collectors to be the most sought-after vintage cereal box. (Likely because it was used by movie director Quentin Tarantino in both “Reservoir Dogs” and “Pulp Fiction.”)

I never even knew about Fruit Brute and Yummy Mummy...

Actually, I don't believe I've seen ANY of these in stores in the last few years. Did they discontinue the whole line?

General Mills stopped being sold 1982 and Yummy Mummy was 94.. About 4-5 years ago boxes full of Frute Brute sold for 900.00 and empty ones went for about 6-700.

Correct they started doing Boo Berry and FrakenBerry about 7-8 years ago only during Halloween with The count always being available. Poor Count got the book about 4-5 years ago and made it only be available during Halloween as well.
