General Mills
Lucky Charms

Lucky Charms From: General Mills
Introduced in 1964

  • Lucky Charms was the first cereal to include marshmallow pieces. The first pieces were pink hearts, yellow moons, orange stars, and green clovers.

  • "They're Magically Delicious!" is the most famous slogan attached to Lucky Charms Cereal. The phrase "They're Always After me Lucky Charms" runs a distant second followed by any verbal listing of the marshmallows in the cereal, ie. "pink hearts, yellow moons, orange stars, and green clovers".

According to cereal lore, Lucky Charms Cereal was invented when Cheerios were mixed with pieces of Circus Peanut candies. The shapes of the marshmallow pieces (known in the industry as "marbits") were based on the concept of the charm bracelet.

When the cereal was first introduced, the oat cereal pieces resembled Cheerios and were not sugar coated. The recipe was changed after initial sales of the cereal were less than stellar.

The first TV ad for the cereal introduced viewers to Lucky The Leprechaun and referred to Lucky Charms as a charming cereal. Get it? Charm-ing.

Company Description: Officially created in 1928, General Mills traces it's history back to the 1860's and the ownership of two flour mills. Since then, the company has become the world's 6th largest food company - marketing to over 100 countries... Read on and see all cereals from General Mills

    I Love Lucky Charms! It's one of my favorite cereals. Although, it used to taste better when I was a kid. I'm pretty sure that they changed the recipe a little.

    I recently bought and enjoyed the Limited Edition with all green marshmallows. I'll never get tired of eating this cereal!

    One of my all time favorites. My mom stopped buying it for me because I would dump out the box, pick out the marshmallows and just eat a whole bowl of them. The only reason it's not my #1 is because after she caught on, it was really, really hard to get her to buy me a box.

    Needs to be back in shops in the UK for a reasonable price. It was my favorite cereal of all time. Shame they stopped selling it. Jealous whilst reading - knowing every one is still eating them and not me.
