Boy do I love me some Fruit Loops! I do declare: the only other cereal standing a chance against Fruit Loops is, you guessed it, Cocoa Puffs. Too bad Lucky Charms had to add so many marshmallows to the mix.
Lucky Charms started with marshmallows in the shapes of pink hearts, yellow moons, orange stars, and green clovers.
Then blue diamonds were added in 1975 (still before my time). Purple horseshoes were introduced in 1984… that’s when all hell broke loose! Soon followed the red balloons in 1989, rainbows in 1992, pots of gold in 1994, leprechaun hats in 1996, shooting stars in 1998, and an hourglass in 2008.
In Japan there isn’t much of cereal selection. Japan would be a much better place if Fruit Loops existed.
