If you’re old enough to remember the bliss of Saturday Morning cartoons, then you know that cereal was a big part of that weekly tradition. You’d lay down on the floor in front of the TV on your stomach, legs up with your ankles crossed and dangling in the air as you munched on the sugariest, most colorful cereal you begged your mom to get you because hey, it was on sale and you were so good this week.
And one of those cereals you were chomping down on was probably this:
That’s right, Lucky Charms and Frosted Flakes are some of a sweet-toothed cereal lover’s favorite indulgences.
And now General Mills has mashed together the two cereals for Lucky Charms Frosted Flakes.
It finally adds the breakfast world’s favorite marshmallow pieces to Tony The Tiger’s sweetened flakes of corn for a treat that’s sure to make your teeth chatter with the sugar jitters.
Now you might be asking yourself, well hey, isn’t Frosted Flakes a Kellogg’s cereal? Because it totally is.
As it turns out though, the Frosted Flakes name isn’t trademarked. So other cereal manufacturers can use the moniker freely. So the folks at GM decided to slap their newest name on a familiar blue box and call it a collab day.
And for now, it looks like people are already warming up to it.
Turns out Lucky Charms Frosted Flakes isn’t the only new box General Mills is putting in the cereal aisle.
They also debuted Cinnamon Toast Crunch Blasted Shreds and Peanut Butter Chocolate Blasted Shreds. They look like spin-offs of frosted mini-wheats. No word on whether or not they soak up as much milk as their bricks-of-wheat counterparts, though. If they do, you can count on me picking those bad boys up for sure.
If the idea of Frosted Flakes with marshmallows seems familiar, it’s because it is. Kellogg’s added marshmallows to its Tiger-repping cereal back in 2016.
Are you excited to try this out?
