As Valentine’s Day approaches, we’re looking right past it and on to the next, much greener occasion: St. Patrick’s Day, which also happens to be Lucky the Leprechaun's birthday. The Lucky Charms mascot, who turns 56 this year, is celebrating the only way he knows how — with toasted oat pieces and a brand new marshmallow shape.
Now through March, families can enjoy magically delicious original and chocolate Lucky Charms featuring a limited-edition blend of marshmallow shapes including pots of gold, green shamrocks and brand-new gold coins. Both boxes also include leprechaun traps on the backside for kids to catch Lucky the Leprechaun.
The 10.5-ounce box has a suggested retail price of $2.50, while the 19.3-ounce and family-size 21.2-ounce boxes cost $3.33 each. Limited-edition Lucky Charms will be going away after the holiday, when they will join the ranks of breakfast cereals we wish they'd bring back.
