If you’re an 80’s baby you totes remember Franken Berry….fun fact did you know Franken Berry was very popular when it was first introduced supposedly because the first batches of the cereal used a dye that didn’t break down in the body causing poo to be bright pink….a symptom sometimes referred to as “Frankenberry Stool”. True story accordingly to Wiki.
I’ve never experience the phenomenon myself but I honestly can’t say I’d be averse to pink poop, that would kinda rock wouldn’t it?
I haven’t personally seen Franken Berry on my supermarket stores in YEARS and only see Count Chocula but General Mills will actually stop making these “monster” cereals this year and will bring them out seasonal only (in the Fall for Halloween).
That’s my trivia for today.
I was reminded of this because my next review is on the new Bath & Body Works Liplicious Strawberry BooNilla Lip Lipgloss. The taste, the packaging, etc…just reminds me of Franken Berry for some reason!
I super love this one as the really intensely sweet flavor reminds me of the Franken Berry Cereal I was discussing above. It’s a vibrant strawberry with a hint of something cake-y in the background. As far as I’m concerned it’s all kinds of delicious but some folks may feel it tastes a bit fake or sensitive types might not get off entirely on the intense flavor.
The packaging cracks me up as well as it features too creepy looking strawberry faces on the tube. The actually gloss is a swirl of baby pink and strong iridescent white. As much as I love the taste I find the formula is a bit gritty and it looks rather patchy and awful on my lips as the shimmery white comes through dominantly here versus the lovely pink.
Color aside, I love this…it’s just cute. Sometimes I have to give over to the cute factor.
Strawberry BooNilla is one of ten new Halloween Lipglosses available now at Bath and Body Works for $8 each or Buy and Two and Get One Free.
