Chocolate Lucky Charms
I need to apologize. In a previous post, here, I stated that we Canadians were not lucky enough to get Chocolate Lucky Charms; that we were stuck with the original frosted format only. I was in a mild slump about being wrong, so I travelled up to Georgetown for cereal jollies.
Seems that we cereal-loving Canadians just had some purple horseshoes shoved up our collective ass, because we are now able to purchase the amazing new Chocolate Lucky Charms in local food emporiums.
But don't be fooled. This cereal is not a sugary blast into the past. It won't bring back warm memories of watching the short-lived "Rubik's Cube" on Saturday mornings, or even "Thundarr The Barbarian". This is a new cereal, and what it will do is create new memories.
The box, which is now brown instead of red to represent the cereal's unknown chocolate heritage, has a small banner which says "New!" I read the box backwards and couldn't find any subliminal messages or any indication that tiny Irish Leprauchaun's actually enjoy this cereal. But I can assure you that it's chocolately deliciousness will be enjoyed by children everywhere.
The marshmallows are the same you'd find in a standard box of Lucky Charms, or 'Frosted' Lucky Charms for you old-schoolers out there. The cereal bits are the same odd shapes that make no sense to me, however, the frostedness has been replaced by chocolate. And for an extra little treat, the chocolate turns the milk into chocolate milk. It makes left-over milk-slurping extra delicious.
When I first saw Chocolate Lucky Charms in the U.S.A., I wasn't sure if it would be good. I wasn't sure if the sugary flavour of the marshmallows would blend well with the chocolateyness of the cereal bits. But luckily, the 'mallows aren't fruity. They're just sugary. And everybody knows sugar goes well with sugar.
General Mills suggests 125 ml of milk. I suggest you combine Chocolate Lucky Charms with cartoons as soon as possible.
