REVIEW: Lucky Charms Frosted Flakes

“Sweet dreams are made of these. Who am I to disagree?”

Those simple lyrics from Eurythmics are all that played through my head the moment I got news of one of the most unexpected and fantastical collaborations in cereal history – Lucky Charms Frosted Flakes. This teaming of two titans seems completely illogical and insane. One cereal is made by Kellogg’s while the other is General Mills. The existence of this mashup would be like if Pepperidge Farm released a Milano filled with Oreo crème; it simply doesn’t make sense! Yet, it happened, it’s here, and it truly is a sweet dream, because this stuff is goddamn delicious.

REVIEW: Super Mario Cereal

I’ve said it before but I’ll say it again, because honestly why the hell else am I eating all of this oddly fun factory food – nostalgia is a helluva drug. In the early 90’s little Sean E was a highly impressionable sprouting lad who loved his Nintendo, Raisinets, and professional wrestling. My favorite cereal at the time was WWF’s Superstars Hulk Hogan Cereal, which was a super basic sweetened puffed corn cereal that I’m sure would be exceedingly average if I had it today.

But back then, when Hulkamania was the SHIT the cereal tasted like magic. I can’t explain exactly what it tasted like but the best comparison I have today based on hazy memory is the underrated Post Honey Oh’s, which still slap. Fast forward to 2018 and my cereal nostalgia button has officially been switched with Super Mario Cereal, which combines mixed berry cereal with marshmallows.
