Well you know how the Leprechaun kept telling us 'They' were always after his Lucky Charms......


Turns out 'They' got them......he put up a good fight to try and keep hold of them but.......oh...God.....its too sad....I cant finish.........all I will say is that the CSI only found his little green hat and his sheleighly.....

WHY DIDNT WE LISTEN......?!?!?!

No I was being serious. It's not fair (When Mum and Dad nag nag,"Stand up straight! Don't be rude!" (Horrid Henry). But surely there are even more "unhealthier" things then those. I mean all it was, was a cereal of sweets .

I've never seen them here, but when I was in the states I was having about 4 bowls a day, ridiculously sugary

There's plenty of other alternatively crap rubbish out there, if that's what your heart's set on.

I've no idea as I've never eaten them. I'm sure I vaguely remember that a supermarket (morrisons??) began stocking them but there was an outrage cos of the amount of sugar in them so they were taken off the shelf.


According to this http://uk.answers.yahoo.com/question...8132416AAT67oD the above was just a theory.

All I know is I once set fire to a bowl and you should have seen the violet-blue flame!

(For all those chemists out there - I'm sure you can confirm that means it has a Haaa-UGE sugar content )

I think it's on offer in Selfridges in the Trafford Centre for 10 for 2 boxes or 7.50 a box.

Get there fast for that bargain!

Are they more sugary than Ricicles? I swear Ricicles should have a motif on the box saying "would you like some rice with your sugar?"

That may be why I like Ricicles though. In small quantities

You can get a cup (bowl) full of them for 1.49 ! And a box of them for 4.00! A large 24oz box ( I haven't a clue what that is )

Just don't blame me if I was talking rubbish! I only noticed in passing because I wondered who the heck spends 7.50 on a box of cereal

About 12-14 years ago (21 now) they used to be a regular cereal, I have not had the American ones to confirm but as I remember eating them, they were little shaped things in line with rice krispies in that they were not sweet, and mixed in with them, but not very many, were small but powerfully sweet marshmallows of different colours. In my view they weren't too unhealthy since the unhealthy bits were in small quantities, that's coming from memories as a child, I probably would feel its unhealthy if i had them today. Are the American ones as i described or are the rice krispies type part sweet as well now?

As i was told 5-8 years back when i wondered why they weren't around and reminiscing childhood with my friends. Apparently some kid died from chocking from some metal part that was in his/her cereal and so it was banned. It's obviously BS but it's the only answer i have.

I used to love Lucky Charms myself but can only get 'em in Selfridges! Last time I went there they were 7 or have they gone up to 10? Shame really as I loved eating them!
