    I live in South America and we had the marshmallow ALPHA-BITS cereal being imported for a while. Sadly, it didn't last long on the supermarket shelves. The taste was certainly UNIQUE - simply made me HAPPY. Hope POST reconsiders putting this treat back in the market so others can be happy too!

    Marshmallow Alpha Bits was my favorite cereal as a kid. Lucky Charms aren't as good because sometimes their flavor is kind of gross after it's been in the milk awhile. But the Marshmallow Alpha Bits weren't like that. Please sell it in Lubbock, Texas where I live.

    I wish Post would bring back Marshmallow Alpha Bits. I would love for my grand kiddos to experience it.

    I agree with others. This tasted better than Lucky Charms. The oat pieces tasted sweeter than Lucky Charms and the Marshmallows also tasted better. I know they still make Alpha-bits cereal. Not sure why they stopped making the marshmallow version.

    I loved this cereal! Why did they ever stop selling it? :( It was a million times better than Lucky Charms. It was one of the more expensive cereals I remember though, so I only got it when we had a coupon.

    It was better than Lucky Charms. Probably my favorite cereal with marshmallows that I've ever tried.

    Please bring this back! I look at every store for Alpha-Bits. I hear the regular is available online but it's $6 a box, roughly, and sadly not the same. I want the ORIGINAL Alpha-Bits and ESPECIALLY marshmallow Alpha-Bits. I NEED THESE IN MY LIFE. I want my kids to enjoy these like I did. I learned how to spell dirty and profane words with this cereal. Then I would eat those dirty words! The important part is that I was learning to spell and getting nutrients at the same time. Playing, studying, and eating beats school. Multitasking and having fun. An educational delicious snack on the go too! What is POST thinking? This is one of their best most marketable product! (Ps - I acknowledge the irony in any spelling errors in this rant, I don't want to blame POST CEREAL'S CANCELLATION of this cereal for my inability to spell, but if it helps get it BACK ON THE MARKET, I insist it was a majority contributory factor.) BRING IT BACK POST!

    One of my all time favorites as a child. I even preferred this over Lucky Charms even though so many people said they taste the same. I knew the difference and are we not entitled to options! I mean should we just let General Mills and Lucky monopolize this even though we get a lot of other limited time cause this show or movies hot wannabe Marshmallow Alphabet! I might be much better speller if they didn't take this away in the middle of my childhood.
