In case you were starting to worry the internet held no more surprises, we present the fact that — you guessed it — you can buy cereal marshmallows in bulk. Finally, a way to live out our childhood fantasies of eating bowls of all-marshmallow Lucky Charms!
This fact first came to our attention through a short piece on the site called Cereal Marshmallows, which is devoted to the crispy dehydrated marshmallows of our childhood dreams.
CHOW was so intrigued by the site, they had to call up the company's owner, Nathan Wratislaw, with a few questions. Wratislaw says the business was born out of the frustration that comes when you reach the bottom of the cereal box and all the marshmallows are gone. He tells the story of one customer who sent a shipment to his brother with a note: "Here's all the marshmallows I owe you."
Though our years of eating Lucky Charms are over, we can see using these for a fun and very sugary dessert, wherever you might use mini marshmallows. But mostly, giant bags of cereal marshmallows just make us smile.
