$$$The case of the missing Count Chocula cereal boxes was solved Friday, when a craft brewer admitted to buying them to brew in a small-batch beer. Black Bottle Brewery in Fort Collins bought two Albertsons' inventories of the iconic chocolate and marshmallow-bit cereal, puzzling at least one shopper in the process. "Every year I greatly look forward to the month of October when I can purchase a few boxes of this delicious chococlatey (sic) goodness," Kristen Clark wrote in a letter to the Coloradoan. Clark is a "vegetarian and organic food eater for the most part," but said she makes an exception once a year at Halloween for the 43-year-old General Mills cereal. Every year, that is, until this year. [Coloradoan]
