It's sweet, it's salty, it's popped and it's NEW CHEX MIX POPPED.

Chex Mix has gone Sweet, Salty, and Popped and what a tasty combo!
Taste the sweetness and buttery popcorn,
Taste the saltiness of pretzels,
Taste the crunchy goodness of Chex Mix Pieces,
I'm heading for the sweet, salty popcorn in this bowl:

Chex cereal is a big favorite at our house.
Every Christmas season my husband makes batches of Chex Mix original, but wow the new Chex Mix Popped is so much easier to give as a gift! I know he will make the original mix still, but I think I'll add a bag of this new flavor to the hostess gift.

Stock up on new Check Mix Popped for watching football games, serve to holiday guests, TV specials for the holidays, and of course while your are wrapping gifts. Look for all the new flavors of Chex Mix in stores now.

We invited monsters to our house, Boo! Count Chocula, Boo Berry, and Franken Berry are coming over for breakfast.

Are we having monsters for breakfast today? Yes we are! It's the best month to make friends with those friendly retro monsters from General Mills. Count Chocula Cereal, Boo Berry Cereal, and Frankin Berry Cereal are back and exclusively in Target Stores. Fun for the whole family to remember and experience.  

Join the retro monsters for meals and snacks all day long: top yogurt, oatmeal, ice cream, cup cakes, or bowl of fruit with the fun flavors of these retro cereals. Mix all three flavors and pack in a reusable container for car rides, break time or anytime. 

Each cereal box has a fun cut out mask on the back for play time!

General Mills Retro Monster Cereal is great for breakfast time, snack time, recipe time or after school activities.  Pack a snack container for on the go, and now it's even easier to pack monster fun with Fruit Roll-Ups in Boo Berry and Franken Berry. Don't worry Count Chocula has his own box of treats in a bar with chocolatey cereal and spooky fun marshmallows. 

Pass Fruit Roll Ups and Count Chocolate Treats out for Trick or Treat! Put a dish full on the counter for grab and go snacks. I'm adding them to goodie bags! What fun to find a monster in your goodie bag! Boo.
