The magically delicious marshmallows are, and always have been, the best part about Lucky Charms cereal. Which is why cereal lovers all over are now celebrating the fact that you can purchase a bag of just the marshmallows on Amazon.
No, they’re not officially Lucky Charms marshmallows, but they’re almost identical. Made by Medley Hills Farm, the “cereal charms” come in one pound resealable bags and go for $11.59. Basically, they are making everyone’s childhood dream – a cereal bowl of JUST marshmallows – come true.
In addition their breakfast capabilities, the tiny sweet treats are great for baking. Add them to your favorite cookie or brownie recipe. They can also add a pop of color to a cup of hot chocolate.
This Amazon product is great for those that were not able to enter General Mills’ “Lucky Charms Marshmallow Only” contest last year. This 2015 sweepstakes allowed ten lucky winners to snag a box of the coveted official marshmallows. You can watch the original contest promotional video below.
General Mills launched this contest after countless requests from customers for a marshmallow-only box of Lucky Charms. “We wanted to have a little fun and connect with our fans,” said Amanda Hill, associate marketing manager for Lucky Charms, in a General Mills blog post. “It needed to be easy and accessible for everyone to have a chance to win and celebrate what makes us, us – the marshmallows.”
So if you missed this contest, fear not. Hit up Amazon and get the next best thing.
