ChocolateBet: May 19, 2009

Chocolate of the Day:

1 bowl
General Mills (Cereals, LLC)
Chocolate Lucky Charms ("chocolatey whole grain cereal with marshmallows")
Good + - Very Good
Weight: 3/4 cup (28 g.) in one serving/12 oz. (340 g.) in total box
Calories: 110 calories (plus an additional 40 cals for milk)
Cost: $4.99 in one box
Purchased from: Walgreens, in Palo Alto, CA

What luck! One of the few popular breakfast cereals that I can eat (i.e. it doesn't contain wheat) turns out to be Chocolate Lucky Charms. (This cereal is made from whole grain corn.)

I have a soft spot for clever marketing and packaging, and so what really drew me in to buying this was the claim on the front of the box that reads: "Control Time! with the Hourglass Marshmallow Charm"... which is great, because I've always wanted to control time. And, good thing that the Lucky Charms leprochaun has discovered this hourglass, as it appears he is being pursued by a dinosaur.

Chocolate countdown: 19 more days until I reach 1,000 days of eating different chocolates.
