Overheard in my emailbox...
Me: Did/do you like Lucky Charms cereal?
My Friend: i did, and i would still, although there was always a feeling of discontent with it because i knew i was in it for the colored sugary charms, but if it was all charms, it would be pointless nutritionally, but yummy. i have the same thing with a salad and blue cheese dressing.
Me: It was a weird cereal. Like you, I was in it for the charms but
did the non-charms have to be sooooooooo unappetizing? I mean, they weren't even as good as Cheerios.
the charms, while tasty, had a somewhat unnatural texture: not really marshmallow though they were advertised as such
the leprechaun or elf or whatever that creature was.....just a little bit creepy to me as a kid, like the feeling I had around my uncles when they got drunk at family picnics...
My Friend: you are right. the "noncharms" were sub-cheerio...and cheerios aren't even that good.
