25 Days of Cereal Day 18: Lucky Charms Frosted Flakes
It’s day 18 and that means this is the 18th cereal we’ve reviewed this holiday season. We have 6 more reviews and the season is over, so we’re gonna make it worth your while! Tomorrow, I have a story about a certain cereal and my grandpa, and Christmas. Then Day 20-24 will be ALL CHRISTMAS CEREALS! 3 from this season, and 1 from Christmas Past. Then on Christmas Day, make sure you make time to visit Rad Years for a special review of Cereals ARE YET TO BE RELEASED!!! It’s a surprise as to what they are, so you’ll have to be sure to tune in on Christmas Day for the Surprise.
If you’ve been following along, you know that I ABSOLUTELY LOVED Pumpkin Spice Frosted Flakes, and I wasn’t the biggest fan of the Halloween edition Chocolate Frosted Flakes with Marshmallows. I wondered if it was just the Chocolate Frosted Flakes so I decided I wanted to try Regular Frosted Flakes with marshmallows, and while Kelloggs makes those, I had to take a change to review the General Mills Lucky Charms Frosted Flakes cereal.
When it came out a year ago, the box was dark blue and looked A LOT like Kelloggs Frosted Flakes Box, the one I bought today was different, I had one of the originals but it was expired, but I put the comparison picture for you below.
I pulled it from the bag and it already didn’t look like typical Frosted Flakes. I opened the bag and got the sweet Lucky Charms smell. I poured a bowl, hit them with milk and had a bite. Frosted Flakes these are NOT. They stayed crispy, but tasted almost like they were coated in Clark Griswalds “Non Nutritive Cereal Varnish”. The Marshmallows gave the cereal their distinctive Lucky Charms taste, but if you really wanted to this flavor combination, your best bet would be to pick out some Lucky Charms and mix them in with legit Kelloggs Frosted Flakes.
