Hearts, stars, horseshoes, clovers, blue moons, hourglasses, rainbows, and red balloons -- Lucky Charms' permanent lineup of weirdly chewy marshmallows has long served as the perfect antidote to the cereal's mostly flavorless toasted oat pieces. The combination just works and it's been consistently good since your childhood. But now, it looks like the sugary cereal is about to get even better with the introduction of its first new marshmallow shape in a decade.
On Monday, General Mills announced it's officially adding a new marshmallow to the mix: a magical unicorn. The company said it tapped kids to decide on the new shape, saying it relied on "the imagination and creativity of young minds" to make the decision. However, the arrival of the glorious unicorn marshmallow spells the demise of the hourglass marshmallow. Dare we say its time has come to an end (sorry).
