Lucky Charms + Frosted Flakes = Dream
Quick…what are your favorite cereal guilty pleasures? If your immediate answer is not the sugary goodness of Lucky Charms and Frosted Flakes, I’m going to have to ask you to reassess your breakfast choices immediately. The tasty, delightfully un-nutritious treats are the perfect way to start your morning AND *bonus points* they now exist in hybrid form.
Yup, that’s right. General Mills dropped a new brand of cereal that’s a combination of Lucky Charms and Frosted Flakes, which literally sounds like a breakfast miracle. The slightly ~scandalous~ part about this is that Frosted Flakes is actually property of rival cereal brand Kelloggs. But, the cereal name isn’t trademarked — so no harm, no foul, more Frosted Flakes for us.
The hybrid combines the best of both worlds — the marshmallows from Lucky Charms and the flakes from Frosted Flakes. Because, let’s be real, the whole point of Lucky Charms is the marshmallows.
Needless to say, people are freaking out on Twitter about this. The words “mini breakfast boner” may have been used at some point.
Just so you know:
These Lucky Charms Frosted Flakes are amazing!
(As you were.)

If you’re interested in getting a little bit of a preview of what’s in store, look no further than the legacy of short-lived Kellogg’s Frosted Flakes with Marshmallows. According to one food review site, it was sweet. Very, very sweet.
“The last thing I think when I eat Kellogg’s Frosted Flakes is “needs more sugar,” but here we are with Kellogg’s Frosted Flakes with Marshmallows,” Junk Banter wrote. “The package says 12g of sugar per serving, but I’m calling bullshit. There must be at least 100g of sugar per spoonful, and I couldn’t be more excited to die. I’ve scientifically proven that all great cereals improve with cereal marshmallows.”
Well, there you have it. Prepare for a sugar-induced coma. It’ll be grrrrrreaaaat.
