This is definitely my all time favorite cereal that is no longer being made. I am shocked that Kellogg's ever quit making it, since all it consists of is their regular Rice Krispies with marshmallows added. Luckily, as of today, I have found a local store that sells containers of just marshmallows (just like the ones in a box of lucky charms). I made a bowl today and it tastes exactly like I remember them tasting in the 1980's, the only difference being the size of the marshmallow. But for something from my childhood that I haven't tasted in some 20 yrs, I would say the difference is totally nonexistent. I'm telling you, if you want a time machine via your morning bowl of breakfast cereal, buy you some of these loose marshmallows and add them to a bowl of regular Rice Krispies. It is silly to have to go to such lengths, but when you taste the final product I promise you won't be disappointed if you were as big a fan as I am of the original cereal. What I wouldn't give though for a re-release (even if for just a limited time) of this cereal, complete in retro mid to late 80's packaging.

Oh yeah! Loved the Marshmallow Krispies. I feel like they were only around for a year, but it was my fav when I could get it. Hope it comes back again!

Marshmallow Krispies was the BEST cereal ever. I'm tempted to get a box of Lucky Charms, pluck out the marshmallows and add them to Rice Krispies so I can try to replicate the flavor of my old favorite.

Bring it back as it is far better than Lucky Charms. Kids love marshmallows and this cereal had a lot. This was my favorite cereal as a kid. Please bring it back, even for a limited time!
