ORIGINAL FRANKEN-BERRY CEREAL AD CIRCA 1971
In 1971, General Mills introduced strawberry flavored 'FrankenBerry' cereal with pink colored crunchy nuggets and marshmallow shapes.
The Frankenberry cereal box featured a more friendly pink cartoon version of the classic movie monster, Frankenstein.
And some humorous 1970's Trivia:
In 1972, Franken Berry cereal was found to include an indigestible pigment that turned some children's feces pink.
This wasn't dangerous, but caused alarm for many parents of the time. The condition became known as 'Franken Berry Stool'.
By the time the condition was named, the culprit that had created this 'monster' was already being switched to another food dye.
Nowadays, General Mills has replaced artificial coloring with natural coloring in their cereals.
