Looking for an election candidate you can really stand behind? This election year, your favorite more-friendly-than-frightening Monsters are vying against each other in hopes of being elected to the position of America’s favorite cereal Monster. With three awesome candidates in the running, my family was a little torn.
Franken Berry promises to electrify your breakfast with great berry flavor and always be frank. My teen son's name name is Frank, so he felt he had to back his namesake. He took to the poles to cheer on this berry-tastic candidate.
Boo Berry is promising full transparency to get your vote. My daughter Willow has always had the nickname of Boo because she used to look just like the little girl from Monsters Inc. So, of course, Boo Berry was her favorite pick. She was so enthusiastic, she tried to block Franken Berry's photo opp.
Count Chocula is currently leading the polls, working through the night to assure that if he’s elected America’s favorite cereal Monster, he’ll deliver the goblin’ good chocolate people crave! My youngest song Nicky is a little monster himself (if you can't tell my his smile), but in this case the monster that had his vote was Count Chocula.
Though we had someone championing each of the candidates, in the end, there could be only one winner. My oldest daughter and I both cast our votes for Count Chocola, so he won the election in our house, and got the vote in the contest. I was excited to see that he's currently in the lead.
Now, you can get into the action too! The election-themed Monster Cereals boxes are available in stores now and you can go online to vote. It’s a relatively open primary. Any resident of the U.S. who is 13 years of age or older can cast their vote for Boo Berry, Count Chocula or Franken Berry at MonstersVote2016.com for an opportunity to win sweet election prizes, including a chance at a $5,000 grand prize or instant prizes like DJ wireless headphones, cases of Monster Cereals or retro Monster t-shirts. Voting ends on October 31, 2016, and the spooktacular winning Monster will be announced on the campaign website November 1, 2016 (sweepstakes officially ends June 1, 2017).
