On Saturdays my guys get a treat: sugar cereal. Sometimes it is Captain Crunch, other times it is Honeycomb cereal. Their true love, however, is Lucky Charms. It is the one with sickly sweet marshmallows mixed in with surgary, shimmery shapes.
They love everything about Lucky Charms, the fun shapes, the sparkly box and of course those brightly coloured hearts, starts and fourleaf clover marshmallows. In fact, the only complaint about their sugar concoction is the fact that mixed in with their yummy marshmallows are those silly cereal bits. They have attempted the ol’ pick out only the marshmaellows to eat, but they have realised that this is a quick way to lose surgar cereal priviliges. I am certain, however, if they ever found the site www.cerealmarshmallows.com, they would be go nuts. This site sells marshmallow cereal, minus the non-cereal bits.
Imagine, a cereal that is all marshmaellows. No more picking out the non-marshmellow healthy part (if you can call the sugar glazed oat pieces healthy). My adult brain and teeth hurt at the thought of such insanity, but I distinctly remember being eight and dreaming of a world this existed. I know my kids will not be getting bowls of this cereal monstrosity anytime soon, but I think I might have to share the link with them. Dreams do come true, and that is a magic that goes beyond any magically delicious cereal you can buy in a store.
