Fruit Brute was one of the Frankenberry/Count Chocula/Booberry line. The cartoon character was a werewolf who was always touting the "howling good taste" of his cereal, which had a vaguely raspberry taste. The product did not survive more than a year or two.

My only memory of this cereal is the prize a sticker you put around your light switch and it glowed in the dark

I also had the Fruit Brute glow-in-the-dark light switch cover! I loved this creature and his cereal! He has retreated into the darkness due to humanity's ignorant selfishness and corporate greed! But he lives on in our hearts!

This was my Fav of all time! When It was out I only wanted this and King Vitamin when it was out. Those are the best Kids Sugar boxes ever.

AHA! Others who remember this cereal. My sister and I loved it. When they stopped making it we cried. It was a sad, sad day to be a kid.

I loved this cereal as a kid. I wish they still sold it locally. How about Frankenberry,Booberries, Count chocula? I recently tried some Frakenberry from Wal-mart, but it was nothing like the paste taste; they cut down on the sugar:)

They made plastic squeaky toys of the 4 characters, about 9 inches tall, very good detail. Fruit Brute and BooBerry are harder to find than Chocula and Frankenberry.

No one remembers this cereal! It was the best ever. Unfortunately the healthy conotation of "fruit" probably killed it back then. I am not a fruity kinda guy so much (love the peanut butter and chocolate in milk) but this cereal might've been the best ever. Bring it back!!

why dont we boycott general mills until they come back out with fruit brute
Lewis Drake - October 16, 2010 - Report this comment
Is it possible that there was a reluctance to buy it because of a gay association with the word "Fruit?"

I found a playing card with Fruit Brute on it and I was talking about it to friends and they all looked at me like I was crazy.

General Mills' attempt at a fourth "Monster Cereal"! Unfortunately, they never made it out of the '70s! (MOST unfortunately!)
