Autumn is upon us which, in Kansas, means the leaves are falling, the idiots are turning colors and the aisles of the grocery store are filled with brightly colored candies of all sorts.  But waaay in the back, behind the oatmeal and energy bars, other wonderful items have returned, filling my head with thoughts of Monster Cereals.  When I was a kid, I had a breakfast choice of Grape Nuts, Raisin Bran or nothing, so being able to have sugary cereals as an adult is a small joy for me, even if will never be as wonderful as they seemed on Saturday morning TV in 1981.  Still, with an array of artificial fruit combinations and one fudgy variant, each Monster Cereal has its own profile, leading to today’s adjacent-to-a-nutritious-breakfast query…

The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”)  reminds Faithful Spoilerites that the usual suspects are Count Chocula, Franken Berry, and Boo Berry as well as the late, lamented Fruit Brute and Fruity Yummy Mummy, asking: What’s the best Monster Cereal?

Once upon a time, there was a young nerd from the Midwest, who loved Matter-Eater Lad and the McKenzie Brothers... If pop culture were a maze, Matthew would be the Minotaur at its center. Were it a mall, he'd be the Food Court. Were it a parking lot, he’d be the distant Cart Corral where the weird kids gather to smoke, but that’s not important right now... Matthew enjoys body surfing (so long as the bodies are fresh), writing in the third person, and dark-eyed women. Amongst his weaponry are such diverse elements as: Fear! Surprise! Ruthless efficiency! An almost fanatical devotion to pop culture! And a nice red uniform.
