This Lucky, Charming Man

This is so so awesome. I wonder if there's a thesis option...

In other news, it recently came up in conversation that neither my roommate, her boyfriend nor I had ever tried Lucky Charms cereal in our entire lives. We all had good, health-conscious mums who bought Shredded Wheat and Cheerios.

So the other day, I brought us home a box. The unanimous verdict is in:

Lucky Charms are freaking GROSS, yo.

The pink hearts, shooting stars, purple horseshoes, green clovers, blue moons, pots of gold, rainbows and red balloons have neither the taste nor feel of marshmallows. They're hard and sickeningly sweet and have a horrible, chalky texture.

The cereal part in and of itself is fairly inoffensive, except that they are shaped like letters from the alphabet and are therefore very, very sharp. Oatmeal shrapnel.

In conclusion, we do not recommend.

I think we'll give Trix a whirl next week.

Wait...what? Trix are for kids? Oh, nevermind then.

Add me to the Lucky Charm Virgin list. My mother, like yours, was a "no sugar, no chemicals" type. The big super excitement came one vacation per year (which my brother and I had to agree upon), during which we were allowed one bowl of Fruit Loops. Yup, one bowl of Fruit Loops per year was deemed a marker of vacation. Such a sad existence. Le sigh.

I feel badly for you and am therefore willing to donate 3/4 of a box of Lucky Charms.

And after your glowing review of that "magically delicious" cereal, I'm supposed to want that 3/4 of a box?

My mom bought us tons of garbage cereal. You should also look into Count Chocula and Alpha-Bits if you ever get the chance. OR...maybe not, heh.

My old Siamese cat used to go crazy for one colour of fruit loops (I think it was the pink ones). I guess they have the same texture as catfood.
