Major Spoilers Question of the Day: Lucky Charms Edition

Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr +

When I was young, cereals tended to have cartoon mascots and excessive sugar and I was really sort of fine with that.  Trix had a rabbit, Coco Puffs had a cuckoo bird, Sugar Smacks had a terrible were-beast who would kill us all given the leeway…  (C’mon, if you aren’t afraid of his Super Bear form, you’re not paying attention!)  But Lucky The Leprechaun and his “Father Mulcahey in County Cork” squeaking about his good luck sigils was perhaps my favorite, even if his cereal tastes like sweet cardboard with soap chunks.  And the sheer variety of marshmallows leads us to today’s part-of-a-nutritious-breakfast query…

The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) reminds you that the red ones not only go faster, they taste better, asking: Which of the Lucky Charms marshmallows is the best: Pink HeartsYellow Moons, Orange Stars, Green Clovers, Blue Diamonds, or Purple Horseshoes?


About Author

Once upon a time, there was a young nerd from the Midwest, who loved Matter-Eater Lad and the McKenzie Brothers... If pop culture were a maze, Matthew would be the Minotaur at its center. Were it a mall, he'd be the Food Court. Were it a parking lot, he’d be the distant Cart Corral where the weird kids gather to smoke, but that’s not important right now... Matthew enjoys body surfing (so long as the bodies are fresh), writing in the third person, and dark-eyed women. Amongst his weaponry are such diverse elements as: Fear! Surprise! Ruthless efficiency! An almost fanatical devotion to pop culture! And a nice red uniform.

    Green Clovers, as they are the most “Oirish” lucky charm!

    (FWIW, my browser doens’t mesh well with the new site format. Now whenever I call up the main page, it doesn’t show any new postings until I “refresh” the window. It might have something to do with the lack of responses on your daily questions.)

    • (Just to add to your FWIW: Mine wouldn’t even show me the latest questions of the day. I have this page bookmarked, and it’s stuck on one from a week ago. I thought he was on vacation or something. Took me a while to find newer ones. I’ll rebookmark and hopefully it’ll keep up! Love my Questions of the Day, even when some of them I have no ability to answer.)

  2. I don’t have a favorite, but I am prone to eating the oat pieces first and then eating the marshmallows all at once at the end. :)
