There’s a brand new addition to the list of things that definitely should have already happened. Recent items include: Girl Scout cookies cereal, Chicken Shell Chalupas, and Twinkies ice cream. The newest entry to this most prestigious club is Lucky Charms and Cinnamon Toast Crunch oatmeal. Yes, you read that right. You’re favorite childhood, sugary, cavity-inducing cereals are now available in oatmeal form. Feel free to jump around like Kris Kross in 1992 (or Christopher Cross in 1982).
It must be real because The Impulsive Buy has the photographic proof:
No longer do you have to settle for bland run-of-the-mill flavors like maple and brown sugar, raisins and spice and peaches and cream. That jolly leprechaun is going to up your breakfast game to a whole new level. Who needs coffee when you can start your day with a bowl of hearts, stars, horseshoes, clovers and other delicious good luck charms in marshmallow form?
And, as you know, everything is better when it’s made into a marshmallow. That’s all the energy a growing (or likely full grown) body needs to start the day right.
Like all ridiculous food news, Twitter was ready with appropriate responses:
Don’t think you’re going to gorge on these treats and end up in a oatmeal-fueled food coma without a little effort. That is, unless you live in Canada. Because, like all amazing sounding (or at least most) foods, these bad boys are currently only available in the land of Mounties and Bieber. “The products are now available at most retailers in Canada for about eight weeks. The SRP for both products in Canada is $3.49 [Canadian dollars],” a General Mills representative told PopSugar. So, if you live in a bordering state, you still have a few weeks to drive up to Mississauga, Vancouver or Montreal and stock up.
The real doozy is that General Mills has no intention of releasing these oatmeal flavors in the states. So, as “magically delicious” as they may be, you’ll probably have to take a road trip if you ever want to try either of these unique flavors. Or rely on a food courier — which has been done quite famously before.
