Chocolate Lucky Charms

Shamrocks and Shenanigans! It’s a St. Paddy’s Day episode of Cereal Wednesday co-starring NYCWD and Poppy!

Today your fearless Cereal Avengers taste test Chocolate Lucky Charms with swirled marshmallow charms. This General Mills cereal is corn based, unlike its original Lucky Charms counterpart which is oat based. Strangely enough, Chocolate Lucky Charms manages to taste just like the rice-based Cocoa Krispies. It has the same fun shapes of regular Lucky Charms, with a few swirly marshmallows added to the mix.

Since General Mills does it best, here’s their nutrition information for Chocolate Lucky Charms:

Chocolate Lucky Charms

Highlights on the box include the good source of Calcium and Vitamin D and the Whole Grain Guarantee of 8g or more per serving of whole grain as recommended by the Whole Grains Council.

While Watchdog said this cereal tastes great, Poppy said this cereal was just a copycat that wasn’t even able to make its milk taste good. A wildly different opinion from your favorite cereal eaters? Shamrocks and shenanigans, say it isn’t so! (Nah, kidding, it’s totally so.)

Box opening: Easy
Bag rippage: A tiny bit, because it was tough to open.

  1. Despite the fact I’m all about getting a rainbow of vitamins and minerals, I’m not a big fan of Cocoa Krispies … well, any of the chocolate-flavored cereals.

    No toy!? Bummer.

    • ME EITHER, Delmer. At least with Cocoa Krispies the milk tastes good, but that’s a rice based product. These are corn based and don’t let the milk get chocolatey.

  2. Don’t knock your accent – it was authentic for a minute… :)

  3. Jesus, Mary and Joseph, mon. Drink Red Stripe.

    • Damn you for making me want a beer. I’ve still never had a Red Stripe. Maybe the next time I drink with the girls…

    Oh my, the controversy!

    I don’t think that they’re allowed to include toys anymore. Some healthy-living-think-of-the-kids BS. Which is an outrage!

    • I think that toys are expensive, and even more expensive when a kid chokes on them, so that’s maybe why so few toys. :)

  5. “I…..’m… Poppy.” lol

    Dude, your teeth are going to follow out of your head with that stuff!!!!!!

  6. Dawg and Poppy together. And with a bit of the Irish speak. Love it.

    Although I admit that even after I tried the Chocolate Lucky Charms, I still prefer the original.

    Twitter is just waiting for the milk…. sugary milk, that is.

  7. Ire, Dawg. Ire.

    I love original Lucky Charms, but this does not appeal to me for some reason.
