Lucky Charms new unicorn marshmallow is a Twitter hit

Remember final year’s weird splash hit, Starbucks’ Unicorn Frappuccino? Yet another unicorn has been let lax to run free. General Mills on Monday announced it’s replacing a hourglass marshmallow in a Lucky Charms cereal with a unicorn. In other news, Lucky Charms had an hourglass marshmallow?

Earlier this month, a association asked Twitter users to send an emoji suggesting their choice for a new marshmallow. Sorry, ear of corn, assent pointer and butterfly, all of that also garnered during slightest one vote. 

The new marshmallow is done like a unicorn’s conduct and neck and is mostly white, with blue and purple swirls depicting a locks and horn. (Blue and purple are apparently determined unicorn colors, as a Twitter unicorn emoji is blue and purple, and so was a Starbucks drink.)

For those who follow those things, we should know it’s a initial new permanent Lucky Charms marshmallow in a decade. Some of us Gen X kids still remember what a large understanding it was when blue diamonds were introduced in 1975. The final permanent new marshmallow, introduced in 2008, was a yellow and orange hourglass a unicorn will now replace. The remaining lucky-charm marshmallows are hearts, stars, horseshoes, clovers, blue moons, rainbows and red balloons.

Twitter fans seem vehement about a new further to a sweetened herd.

Boxes of Lucky Charms cereals with a new unicorn marshmallow are already starting to seem on store shelves and should be widely accessible by mid-March, a General Mills orator said.
