Only two months to Halloween, but who’s counting? Well, we are, because it’s the most wonderful time of the year! In fall, coffee cosplays as Pumpkin Spice, leaves change their colors, and even breakfast mixes it up as Monster Cereals creep into stores.
Entertainment Earth, purveyor of all things geeky and amazing, sent us a sneak peek at their new Cereal Monsters Geeki Tikis that debuted at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con. Count Chocula, Frankenberry, and Boo Berry—General Mills’ beloved cereal monsters—all get stylized as traditional Tiki.
Weighing in at a whopping 18 to 22 ounces, these ceramic mugs are scary, sweet, and downright charming.
Since we’re between summer weather and fall festivity, filling these creepy Tiki with a cool cereal-infused milkshake seemed like the spoopiest thing to do to celebrate the countdown to All Hallows’ Eve.
Cereal Monsters Geeki Tikis are available for pre-order online at entertainmentearth.com.
