Although I live Halloween 365 days out of the year, my inner-child spirit of Halloween doesn’t officially begin until I see that glorious display of Monster Cereal boxes lining my local market. The holy trinity of Frankenberry, Boo Berry, and Count Chocula is more than just a dose of nostalgia- it’s a symbol, and a tasty one at that, that Summer is coming to an end and the festival of Samhain is upon us.
Some Monster Cereal fanatics’ may complain that the seasonal treat should be available all year- I humbly disagree as that would lessen the special excitement the product illuminates. However, diving through the seventh layers of Hell on Etsy, I found a few ways to keep these nostalgic nuggets of Halloween treasure around beyond the October holiday. Via a handful of shops on the small business platform, we can give the gift or heavenly glucose to our senses in the form of unofficial candles and wax melts!
Great for a gift for the Boo Berry fanatic in your life, or heck, treat yourself because why not- here’s a few shops that make some quality soy wax cereal content!
