While I don’t eat much breakfast cereal these days, I used to love Lucky Charms when I was a kid (and frankly, I still do now even if I don’t buy it anymore). The marshmallows along with the lightly sweetened crunchy wheat shapes were just the perfect combo that were, as they say, “magically delicious.” Well, now there’s a Lucky Charms ice cream that I think I might end up eating by the pint-full!
- It sounds so good. It’s everything you love about Lucky Charms cereal but in an ice cream — or rather a “frozen dairy dessert” — base. According to Delish, the dessert will contain “a creamy vanilla dairy base that’s swirled with the signature cereal and scattered with your go-to marshmallow charms.”
- It’s rolling out alongside Cinnamon Toast Crunch ice cream. I feel like taking a sugary item and packing it with even more sugar (i.e. by combining cereal with ice cream) is such a ’90s idea so I can’t believe it took until 2020 for us to get these incredible desserts, but here we are. Cinnamon Toast Crunch ice cream will contain “cinnamon flavored base with a cinnamon graham swirl and cereal pieces” so it’s pretty clear that I’ll be hurtling towards diabetes soon.
- The ice cream itself should be pretty good. According to @candyhunting on Instagram, the ice cream for these cereals is being made by Nestle under the Edy’s/Dreyer’s brands, and since both of those brands have tasty ice cream on their own, it makes Lucky Charms and Cinnamon Toast Crunch varieties sound pretty promising. It will be available in 14 oz. and 48 oz. sizes, so you can take your pick.
- No release date has been set just yet, but keep your eyes peeled. While Nestle hasn’t said exactly when we can expect to see Lucky Charms ice cream (or even Cinnamon Toast Crunch ice cream) on store shelves, they did confirm that it “will be available at most major grocery stores and mass merchandisers in the coming months as well as convenience and drug stores.” Here’s hoping that happens sooner rather than later!
