SPECIAL: Lehigh Valley Brewfest

Dad “On Tap,” Dave, Fudge’ems, and I trek out to LVB 2006. The results, as to be expected, are scary. Lots of great beer, saving an old woman’s jugs, pork ‘a’ plenty, Count Chockula’s a minority, and overall, an experience to relive in 2007.

    This was a fun, little special episode. I’d love to hear some bits from the cutting room floor.
    You did a good job playing some casual parts, with a focus on the various beers you tasted and were presented at the fest.
    Looking forward to more “onsite” shows.

    Here’s some background on the monster-themed cereals of the 1970’s
    In 1971, the first two cereals in the line were introduced, the still-available Count Chocula and Franken Berry. Boo Berry was released two years later, in 1973, and Fruit Brute appeared a year after that, in 1974. In 1983 Fruit Brute was discontinued due to having the lowest sales of the four brands. General Mills tried replacing Fruit Brute in the late 1980s with Yummy Mummy in 1988, but that too had a short life and was discontinued in 1993. Boo Berry and Franken Berry are sometimes mistakenly thought to be discontinued as well. In reality, their distribution is just much lower and more sporadic than that of the flagship cereal Count Chocula. The best time of the year to find Boo Berry and Franken Berry is around Halloween. Target and Walmart are among the national retail stores that have been known to carry these more scarce cereals during the month of October. They can be found year-round in the Midwest at Super Wal-Mart.
