Happy National Cereal Day!

My favorite “kids’ cereal” was Lucky Charms. I mean, duh, they’re magically delicious! But I believe that Lucky Charms were so much better when it was just pink hearts, yellow moons, orange stars, green clovers, blue diamonds and purple horseshoes (horseshoes were introduced in 1983, so that was the Lucky Charms of my childhood).

They totally jumped the shark with those red balloons (maybe someone at General Mills was a big Nena fan?); it was all downhill from there. Hourglasses? Rainbows? WTF?

Did I hear that right? Does the leprechaun say “totally tubular?” To that I say, “radical!”

I might have to pick up a box this weekend. Even though the blue diamonds no longer exist. Those were my favorites.

  1. Count Chocula was my fave… Suppose it’s better for me that it’s only out around Halloween now.
