We have been buying the marshmallows at a local bulk food store and adding them to Cheerios for our kids. That way I can control the quantity of mallows, the cereal isn't covered in sugar, and everyone is happy.

Well it is magically delicious

A nutritious part of a balanced breakfast.

I may be addicted to Mom's Best Natural Mallow Oats

Next time you're at the grocery store, look at the nutritional info of Lucky Charms and Special K (any brand). The calories, carbs, sugars.... virtually indentical. As it turns out, Special K is NO healthier than a kids cereal, of which I still eat.
 
2013-06-29 12:49:52 PM  
So I just checked the labels, and a serving of Special K is 1 cup, while a serving of Lucky Charms is 3/4ths of a cup. Guess it's not that hard to make the nutritional labels look identical, just scale the serving size
 
2013-06-29 01:14:48 PM  
All the more reason to buy the marshmallows on your own.

EvilToni: I may be addicted to Mom's Best Natural Mallow Oats


OMG that is the best cereal. The word must be out because the shelf is usually bare when I go to the grocery store. When it's in stock I'll buy three boxes.

Yep. I'm fairly sure one of the unlisted ingredients of that stuff is "chemically pure crack."

This morning I was at the grocery store picking some stuff up for lunches at work next week. When I was picking up my Nutrigrain bars I walked past the cereal and saw Marshmallow Fruit Loops.

Lucky Charms has always been my cereal when I end up buying cereal. But I just don't find myself desiring cereal these days. Maybe because I quit weed about 3 years ago - that could be it. But most mornings I either have a bagel with peanut butter if I'm in a hurry, or just go all out and make pancakes or an omelet (really spellcheck, is that how you spell it?) if I'm not.

But seeing Fruit Loops with marshmallows broke down my defenses. I had to buy it. And as soon as I came home (even though I already had breakfast) I ended up trying it.

I have a new favorite. Where was this when I was a stoner????

I just had some for breakfast this morning.  It did not even remotely taste like farking "cat food", liar.  It may be that mom's is better, I dunno, I'll try it, but don't make up shiat that blows your credibility.

Anyway, I'm bored and only recently noticed more bullshiat on fark.  1. the default pansy editing that doesn't recognize html.  2. threads closed after 48 hours or so (WTF?)  3. more and more worthless partner sponsored links.  Any other ways this place is sucking harder that I missed?

Why is it that people go nuts about the marshmallows in Lucky Charms but gag at the idea of Circus Peanuts? They're both made of the same thing.

Great, now I need to go eat a bowl of Lucky Charms.

Wife loves circus peanuts. Farking stores charge a small fortune for those damn things.

saw TV commercial yesterday has Big Eyed Psycho Meme Girl (from an earlier commercial) with a Sweet Pollie Purebred hair do as Mom who snacks on L.C.'s and tells us "I forgot how good these things are!". That girl scares the crap out of me.

what also scares the crap out of me is people eating ersatz Lucky Charms under a more wholesome sounding name or Kashi We're Actually A Huge Conglomerate cereals as if it isn't chemical crap. i treat my body like a toxic waste land and even I won't eat that shiat.

I don't see anything like that, maybe get a better ad blocker. Avoid threads you have no interest in, you aren't forced to open them. The politics tab has always been a den of derp so nothing has really changed there.

They are not even remotely similar. Marshmallow peanuts are soft and sickening, lucky charm marshmallows are crunchy and awesome.

I recently discovered those as well. We FARKERs have similar and discerning tastes, it seems...

I grow my own wheat and oats on an extremely obscure and out of the way piece of farmland that has soil naturally rich in essential nutrients and fresh river water to produce only the healthiest and finest grains. I then take this grain to my windmill where I use an old-fashioned millstone using granite from an independant quarry in the Mediterranean Sea to grind it into a coarse flour. I then extrude it using a machine I built by myself, and start to cook it using steam from a natural artesian well that is triple-filtered through the finest Class D diamonds I mine in Africa by hand to remove any contaminants from it.

The blades on my food extruder I forge by hand using a hammer and anvil and are repeatedly folded until they become surgical-grade steel. The salt I use for extruding my cereal grains is from the Dead Sea. Once my grains are extruded, I use the finest cane sugars from an obscure plantation in Hawai'i which is run by full-blooded natives to create my own marshmallow confections for my breakfast cereal grains. Any flaws found in the marshmallows or sugar and I refuse to buy any more cane sugar from that plantation for the rest of the season and instead travel to Burma and spend six to eight months browsing the cane sugar markets for the perfect sugar needed for my cereal.

I mix the cereal and marshmallows according to nutritional advice given to me in written writing by the U.S. Surgeon General that is hand-delivered to me by a private courier escorted by ex-Delta Force operatives who know the importance of a balanced breakfast.

After pouring cold milk (from the dairy cow I own that I milk by hand), and pasteurize and homogenize myself, I use a spoon I forge and shape using the same methods as my food extrusion blades. The bowl I use is ceramic that is hand-made from a local independant potter who uses the old fashioned methods and a wood-fired kiln to create his bowls.

Only then do I eat my breakfast cereal.

People get 24 hour bans for responding this type of troll: 'all you people are idiots, blah blah talking point, blah bigoted remark, blah blah' with "your points are wrong because x, y, and z, and you are a moran" Apparently the latter is a personal attack, while the former is the thread-shiatting goodness they like around here.

Kind of makes one wonder if the mods are doing the trolling themselves :)

There are only a few general types of conservatives.  The insane folks who support the modern republican party, and the rest.  The rest is broken up between people who are now more in line with the democrats and the people who reside in some goofy pseudo-libertarian limbo.

It used to be that links were approved as they were interesting, different/odd or sort of cool. Now it just about driving traffic and appealing to the core left leaning atheist homosexuals (doubt me notice the lack of female photos in threads that farkers in the past would have swamped the tread with). Most of the headlines that get approved are quite lame or just the headline from the link itself rehashed
