28: Jumbo Lucky Charms
“Jumbo Lucky Charms Cereal is part of this enormous breakfast.”
It all started when I saw these big Starshmallows on sale. I realize they’re labeled “StarMallows” but that’s a terrible name. It takes out the most fun sound (“rsh”), so I will call them Starshmallows.
I instantly thought of my favorite shaped-marshmallow cereal, and the idea was born. Of course, I suppose I’m creating more of an off-brand Jumbo Lucky Charms here, since I was unable to obtain any gargantuan purple horseshoe pieces and so forth.
The next question was how do I scale up the no-fun part of the cereal? I needed something sweet, but borderline bland, generic tasting, and about the same size as the Starshmallows. Multi-shaped would be a plus.
Ta-dah! Animal crackers. (What is that thing? I think it’s the fabled sheepcowdog.)
I just mixed them together in the biggest bowl I could find, with my comically oversize spoon.
This is my own personal mix, so I figured I would double the standard marshmallows per cereal ratio, thus fulfilling one of my biggest childhood wishes.
Then comes the best part.
If you’re following along at home (and why wouldn’t you be), at this point you’ll want to dig in immediately, because the animal crackers aren’t quite structurally sound for very long after this step.
It tastes pretty much like Lucky Charms. Only bigger. “They’re gigantically delicious.” And that spoon is hard to eat with.
So… does anybody want to try out some Giant Cookie Crisp?
