July 16th: '7Days of Chocolate Reviews' - Edition 80 - Lucky Charms Chocolate


Hi All,

Another week has flown by here on ChocolateMission, I hope you everyone has enjoyed the reviews that have been and gone. If you missed out on any of them this week be sure to check them out here:

Hotel Chocolat The H-Box Summer Desserts - See HERE
Ritter Sport Thank You - See HERE

I've been so hectic with my day job this week I haven't been able to give much as much love to the site as I would have wished. In the coming weeks I'm aiming to make some aesthetic changes to the site to freshen things up a little. If anyone has any suggestions or think they might be able to help me out with this then please get in contact.

Upcoming this week we have more from Hotel Chocolat, Bits n Bobs and again whatever I feel like posting on Friday. Despite my busyness I've managed to accumilate a whole host of new products that will need reviewing at some point this weekend. I'm just off to update the news page so be sure to give that a look over this afternoon.

Have great weekends and remember to visit the NEWS PAGE.

'Chocolate flavour cereal with marshmallow pieces'

Last week I mentioned that my pals at AmericanSoda had recently sent me through some fantastic American goodies for me to try out. Last week I started off by swapping my usual breakfast for these Kellogg's Chocolate Cookie Dough flavoured Pop Tarts (See HERE). This week my usual bran flakes cereal was put aside again - as I got stuck into these General Mills Lucky Charms Chocolate.

For all my readers who live outside the US I can let Wiki inform you that 'Lucky Charms is a brand of cereal produced by the General Mills food company. It first appeared in stores in 1964, and consists of two main components: toasted oat-based pieces and multi-colored marshmallow bits (marbits) in various shapes' ... suffice to say this is THE kids cereal of all kids cereal in the US. So what did I make of them!??? Well like a lot of cereals I've tried like this one, I found Lucky Charms chocolate tasted just fine but ultimately failed in satisfying my hunger. Frankly this came as little surprise, though I must admit I found the chocolatey cereal taste and sweet marshmallows more of a guilty pleasure than I first thought I would. In the future I don't think I would buy or eat these on their own, but mixing some in with another more substantial cereal will definitely be something I do from time-to-time to give my breakfast a little perk up.

6.6 out of 10

You can buy these HERE at AmericanSoda
