If you like your cereal hot, you're in for a real treat. General Mills is introducing a new line of oatmeal and it comes in the form of your favorite overly sugared childhood cereal - Lucky Charms and Cinnamon Toast Crunch.
What was once a plain, healthy breakfast food has taken a turn towards every child's dream. The instant oatmeal Lucky Charms flavor comes complete with the classic brightly colored horse shoe, moon, shooting star, pot of gold, and clover marshmallows to top the warm bowl of oats.
And Cinnamon Toast Crunch? There will be no need to doctor up these oatmeals with brown sugar and cinnamon, it comes in the crunchy cereal form ready to top your morning breakfast.
Sadly, the new flavors will only be available in Canada. It seems that our Northern neighbor gets all the good stuff - poutine, the McLobster, The Tragically Hip. Sigh. Looks like we'll have to settle for crunching up our own cereal and topping our instant oatmeal with it.
Maybe if you're lucky, however, you can find someone with a passport to smuggle some across the border. But only for the next eight weeks, because then spring will kick in and the limited time oatmeal will be out season.
