13/14 some of these products were regional. There weren't any Burger Chefs or Mummy cereals in our area.

It was one of the five monster cereals. The Big Three, which still appear each Halloween, are Count Chocula, Franken Berry, and Boo Berry. The other two were Fruit Brute and Yummy Mummy. Those two appear sporadically.

Sold from 1987-92. According to General Mills, Yummy Mummy is not one of the Monster Cereals.
