So I havent had the Charms since.........its probably been at least 20 years. I bought some during my last trip to the dark zone and..........my god, why did I ever give them up? I find that Im hankering for a bowl every hour of the day. Did they update the recipe to include sprinkles of cocaine?

I'm about to eat a bowl right now.

I had a bowl of Capn Crunch like a year or two ago, my favorite cereal next to Lucky Charms.

I fucking hated it and I hate myself. Threw the rest of the box away.

Reese's Puffs are the bomb! I have gone back and forth on buying other nostalgic brands like Frosted flakes, Cheerios and many others like Lucky Charms. None seem to hold my interest more than a bowl full.

I keep CTC on hand almost always. But I'm for sure going back for another box of Charms this week.

I legitimately CAN NOT control myself with cereal, so we don't keep it in the house. Haven't had any form of cereal in probably 5-6 years. I can eat 1200 calories worth of CTC, basically 100% sugar/diabeetus fuel, without even batting an eye.

Cant remember the last time I had a bowel of cereal. It honestly has to be 12-15yrs.
My go to were Lucky Charms, Capt Crunch and Fruity Pebbles. The Fruity Pebbles you have to eat them fast as shit or only pour a little at a time. They get soggy fast as fuck

We usually have frosted flakes or cherrios in the house then it's either froot loops or CTC. So at any given time 2 different boxes that last a week.

im sorry but I’m about to piss on your cheerios(pun intended😂) but...

I worked for General Mills for 7 years and if you saw what the equipment that runs that cereal looks like you’d never eat it again, the way they clean that equipment is borderline disgusting And I don’t know how they get away with that, I’m pretty sure they set the room conditions as dry as possible as not not get mold.

this applies to CTC and lucky charms

This is the same as seeing "have you seen how they make chicken nuggets!?!"

A co-worker bought me a bag of only marshmallows off Amazon. I then went out and bought rice Chex and remade the Turtles cereal from the late 80's. It was everything I hoped for.

Reese's Puffs, Cinnamon Toast Crunch, and Honey Nut Cheerios stand no chance of survival around me.

Anyone remember Oreo O's back in the day? lol. Those were straight up sugar.

I have seen this type of equipment and it doesn't bother me. My dad worked for a company that manufactured that type of equipment and sold it to cereal and other food companies.

No different then working in a restaurant kitchen and people keep going out.

But have you seen it after it has run thousands of lbs of slimey sugary CTC and then it only gets blown out with air and some wipes and GMI calls it clean? Lol

That just adds flavor lol. I bet the cereal run on a brand new machine doesn't taste as good as the stuff running on a 20 year old machine.
