Fun Fact Friday: Count Chocula

Ok, so Count Chocula is my ALL TIME FAVORITE CEREAL. I was feeling very nostalgic today, so here are some fun facts:

*Count Chocula was first introduced in March 1971

*He is a vampire who prefers chocolate to blood, (this would totally make me team Edward!)

*Tagline: “I vant to eat your cereal”

*First images of the Count were by artist George Karn

*In the 1980’s, he was re-stylized and new boxes were introduced;(including a set where Bela Lagosi, as Count Dracula, is chasing a terrified Count Chocula.)

*In 1993 another character overhaul returned him to resemble his former, more fearsome self.

*Since 2010, Count Chocula, Boo Berry and Frankenberry are only sold for a limited time, in the Fall/Halloween season.

Happy Friday.
