Growing up, Lucky Charms was my absolute favorite cereal, and it was solely because of the marshmallows. I liked that they were sweet, colorful, and capable of changing my plain white milk into a variety of different colors. Sometimes, I even picked out and ate all the marshmallows, abandoning the boring cereal bits for a full-blown morning dessert, and I know I wasn't alone — all my friends did the same thing. It seems Lucky Charms has figured out that it has marshmallow-obsessed fans because the cereal brand just released Jet-Puffed Lucky Charms Marshmallows, which are basically fluffier versions of your fave cereal bites.
On Wednesday, Aug. 7, the Lucky Charms Instagram account posted a photo of "Lucky Charms Magically Delicious Marshmallows" which seem to feature everyone's fave lucky charms marshmallow shapes — pink hearts, yellow stars, green clovers, and blue moons. The only difference? These marshmallows look a little bigger and much fluffier, making them the perfect treat for any marshmallow lover. The Instagram post featuring the Magically Delicious Marshmallows was captioned:
Magically delicious in EVERY form! Grab a bag of @kraftjetpuffed marshmallows with Lucky Charms shapes today! #magicallydelicious.
Although the caption suggests that they're out now, it seems that they're actually coming soon. The @candyhunting Instagram account also posted about the Magically Delicious Marshmallows on Wednesday, and they wrote, "Hopefully they'll be in stores within the coming weeks," suggesting the marshmallows have yet to hit shelves. I was unable to locate them at any retailers online as of publication.
Elite Daily reached out to Kraft-Heinz, the parent company of Jet-Puffed, for more information about the marshmallows and the availability, but did not hear back at the time of publication.
Some people, like Twitter users @StoneyBrained, were hyped about the the marshmallows ahead of their release. TBH, @StoneyBrained tweeted what we're all thinking anyway: "What would it take to get a lifetime supply of this."
When it comes to the taste of these puffed-up 'mallows, it's not clear if they'll have a flavor similar to the cereal, or if it will be more reminiscent of the a regular ol' marshmallow.
