My order for a box of this guiltily delicious cereal was fulfilled by South African Foods (who I cannot praise more for the efficient posting and secure packaging) and it is a far more reasonable price than many other online retailers who offer Lucky Charms.
I (and my sister, for whom this is a Christmas present) remember this cereal from our childhood and we both miss it immensely. There is just something about the taste that has never been replicated. The reasons for which the cereal was withdrawn from the UK market are the subject of urban legend (too much sugar/additives anyone?) but whatever the explanation for the decision to no longer sell them in the UK, I am just thankful that they are still produced and I can still manage to get my hands on a box!
If you've never had a bowl of Lucky Charms, then it is hard to describe the saccharine sweetness mixed with the oatiness of the wholegrain hoops. For some, the taste is too sweet but for me (...and my sister) it is just perfect; especially with the memories it brings back of childhood weekends spent chomping down on boxes of it.
Thank you to General Mills for this guilt inducing (but definitely worth it) cereal and thank you to South African Foods for your prompt delivery. I have ordered from yourselves before (again, another box of LC) and never have any doubts about the quality of your service.
