What is it with this sugar coated cereal that just keeps you coming back for more? I made the mistake a couple of weeks ago of buying a box of Lucky Charms for some guests coming into town. As my habits would have it, the box was half way gone before they even got here. And then when I go to the store this week, they have the extra-king-size box on sale for a price I couldn't resist. Of course I promised renewed self-discipline and that the box would be treated as a "treat", meaning not an all day, every day intake option. Oh how I have failed myself. Every morning I make my boys and I a big bowl/plate of food and we sit on the couch and share of the goods. Now I'm pretty fair; we all get the third bite, going in the same order: Dallin B, Porter P, and then me. Well, Lucky Charms has turned me into a cheater. Now, me being the one in control, I'm sneaking bites left and right. One for B, one for me, one for Porter, 2 for me. And then when they become disinterested in breakfast, as they often do, instead of trying to hold their attention until breakfast is finished, I gladly take the opportunity to finish the rest of the bowl all by myself. This is what Lucky Charms does to me. And I must add that their increased marshmallow count is not helping the cause. I remember that it used to be by the end of the box you were fishing for marshmallows as they were far and few in between; the box was always very top heavy. Not anymore. They have the whole box packed with delicious levels of marshmallows. They keep me coming back for more. After this box is gone I will once again commit to the low sugar cereals, I promise...

LOL! I used to have that dilemma. Then I got pregnant (my last pregnancy)... and I can no longer eat them. :( So you will have to enjoy some for me too!

Yes it is very tastey! I sometimes will save all the marshmallows in my bowl to the very end and then I have a bunch of bites of JUST marshmallows, I know kinda gross to some but to others very delicious.

Cereal has been my craving during pregnancy. I sometimes spend anywhere from 3-5 minutes just deciding on the two boxes to buy. I think I will be adding Lucky Charms in the mix.....

Oh, there really is nothing better than a bowl (or 3) or Lucky Charms! Indulge while you can...I'm sure you'll get tired of them pretty quick!
