Lucky Charms Has Good News For Marshmallow Lovers

With a wave of a magic wand a food wish has been granted. Lucky Charms has brought back its Just Magical Marshmallows. While the marshmallows are not missing from that favorite General Mills cereal, this newest offering of the Just Magically Delicious Marshmallows are the treat themselves. But, this concept isn't the first time that General Mills has offered just the marshmallows. In 2019, the brand answered fans calls by offering the special package via a giveaway (per Food Network). After the success of that first giveaway, another release was available in stores in 2020 (per Delish). Still, these special offerings disappeared from the shelf like the rainbow after a quick rainstorm. 

Luckily for everyone, the bag of just marshmallows has made its triumphant return. According to a General Mills press release shared with Mashed, the latest Just Magical Marshmallows will be available at major retailers, but only for a limited time. With a suggested retail price of $3.99, the newest offering has redesigned 4-ounce packaging. Each bag features one of the magical charms on the cover. There are a total of eight different designs. At the end of the rainbow, there might not be a pot of gold, but you might be fortunate enough to find Just Magical Marshmallows.

How can you unleash the power of Lucky Charms Magical Marshmallows?

Although the iconic General Mills cereal really has marbits, not marshmallows, those whimsically-shaped sweet treats are one of the reasons why people crave another spoonful. That colorful rainbow nestled in the cereal bowl is more than just another spoonful of sweetness. Each of the eight shapes or charms has a respective power, according to a General Mills press release regarding the return of the Just Magical Marshmallows. While some charm associations are obvious — Red Balloon and the power to float, or the Clover as the power of good fortune — other connections take a little more thought to unravel.

For example, the Blue Moon offers the power of invisibility, Unicorn is the power to teleport, and Horseshoe is the power to speed up time. Even if these marshmallows are not exactly a Wizarding World potion, the concept can spark a fun conversation around the table. In the end, the rainbow charm might have had the biggest influence. With all those charms in the bowl, it really is a colorful world.
