I Eat Cereal Marshmallows

Pour a little sugar on it, honey

Oh, boy, oh, boy, OH, BOY!

My new cereal marshmallows are here!

Remember that whole cereal marshmallow debacle? You can read about it here, or you might prefer to enjoy this brief summary:

I ordered some cereal marshmallows online, and they sucked.

And, of course, I had to write a post about it. Well, guess what happened, my little bloglings? Not long after that post appeared, I got an e-mail:

Hi there. This is about your marshmallows on your blog.


It was the owner of the cereal marshmallow site! RUN! HIDE! But I didn’t. I kept reading:

I thought your post about it was funny except for one thing . . . you weren’t happy with my product. Now that makes me angry . . . and you didn’t tell me . . . now I’m angrier.

CRAP! Cereal Marshmallow Guy is going to get me! But no. He had added a little smiley face to show he was only kidding. Turns out, he is a really nice guy who can’t bear having an unhappy customer. He said he must’ve sent me the “kosher” marshmallows, which are not made with gelatin (apparently a key ingredient to a successful cereal marshmallow). He insisted on sending me a new shipment of marshmallows, free of charge.


Well, if you’ve been to his site, you know he doesn’t just sell cereal marshmallows. When I excitedly opened my box, in addition to three beautiful bags of colorful, extra-gelatin marshmallows, I found:


So much cool stuff! That hat says, “Pimpjuice,” by the way, and I totally rock it. Energy supplements, 2 awesome T-shirts, stickers . . . wow! I was thrilled but also terrified. What if these cereal marshmallows sucked too? Would I be forced to write a bad “review,” even after receiving all this cool swag?

I was so excited to run out and buy some cereal to accompany my cereal marshmallows! But first, a 4-hour nap. Then, on to Walgreen’s, my one-stop shop for junk food and drugs. Last time I tried the marshmallows with Rice Krispies, but this time, no shilly-shallying. I went straight for the hard stuff:

I made my cereal base:

Then added the marshmallows:

A cautious chomp. Another more enthusiastic chomp. The verdict?


And just look at that sweet, sugary marshmallow dust:

What a relief. My search for the perfect cereal marshmallow—which has been going on for, what, a whole month?—has ended.

Please visit this guy’s site and buy some cereal marshmallows today. Why not get a Pimpjuice hat while you’re at it?


Humor-Blogs has the coolest swag.

    I am so glad you are here to eat the marshmallows for me…I think they are a teensy bit repulsive. I am relieved that you will be able to take care of my share, I would hate to be known as a marshmallow slacker.
    Thanks, friend!

    I never knew you could actually buy special cereal marshmallows! I knew Lucky Charms cereal already has some in it, at least it used to when I was a kid. It’s been a long time since I ate Lucky Charms.

    I went back and read your first post and thought “Uh oh, Is JD going to sell out and give a good review after she gave a bad review just to cater to the corporate interests?”. Then I read the rest of your post. Whew! You didn’t, and that is great customer service. I don’t know if I’m into cereal marshmallows that much, but for those who are, it sounds like a great place to start (and maybe finish) your search for them.

    Well, just the other ones, but I may have to pick some up anyway.

    In college the Lucky Charms were in one of those big plastic dispensers and it didn’t take us long to figure out that the bottom feed nature of the dispenser made all the cereal sift to the bottom and the marshmallows stay on top, so if you wanted an extra shot of marshmallowy goodness you had to open the top and scoop them off with your bowl. Provided the cafeteria po-po weren’t watching.

    No milk? That’s the only way I could tolerate them, I think.

    As far as I can tell from the picture, your cereal to marshmallow ratio is 1:300. I think there’s a 12-step program for that.

    Also, I think the guy who gave them to you is nice and all, but you know he’s your “dealer” now, right?

    That’s how it starts. They send you stuff for free “Just to make sure you’re satisfied with the product,” and it’s all downhill from there.

    FYI, the best rehabs are in California.

    My 5-year-old son, who also eats cereal dry, would LOVE this. We have finally broken him of the habit of pouring out entirely boxes of cereal on the floor and picking out just the marshmallows (36 hours and no mistakes!) so I’m sure he’d bust a gut with joy at the notion of getting his sugar high so readily instead of that intravenous feed he was contemplating.

    Before someone has a conniption at the notion of my son eating food off the floor, let me tell you two things. (1) Alex has eaten off every surface in the house (including, possibly, the ceiling) AND outside – you can’t stop him; we’ve tried. For two years (until age 2.5) everything we gave him was automatically dumped on the floor before consumption (which is why we stopped giving him soup) no matter what we did to prevent it. Apparently, he believed floor added an certain something, spicewise, that he could not obtain otherwise. (2) He is also the healthiest child I’ve ever known, bar none. He has had 2 colds in all his life, has broken nothing or had to be taken to the hospital, despite the fact he’s also a climber, jumper, chewer of all things dangerous, etc. (Yes, this grey hair is directly attributable to him). And he gets away with darn near everything because he’s resourceful, mind-bogglingly cute, and impossible to reason with.

    What was I talking about again?

  13. 13 Regan

    Woo! I just added these to my Christmas list. I want some extra extra gelatin-y marshmallows. Yuuum…. I want some right now.

    I think someone should make a board game with the marshmallow pieces. I just might do that. The only problem is everyone would eat the pieces. Unless I just make little plastic pieces resembling the marshmallows. But that wouldn’t be as fun.

    What do you think?

    Puglette: Oh, my little Puglette. I’m happy to eat these marshmallows for you. I’m sorry you find them repulsive, but rest assured that as long as I’m around, no one will ever call you a marshmallow slacker!

    Karen, author of “My Funny Dad, Harry”: I just found out myself. I’ve always loved Lucky Charms but never felt there were enough marshmallows. Problem solved!

    Jen – Queen of Poo: I know, right? He’s the best. I did actually go back and sprinkle a few more Froot Loops in the bowl. I’m not an animal.

    unfinishedrambler: Oh, I hope I never have to sell out. I hate corporate interests! But this cereal marshmallow guy is a rare find. Cereal marshmallows aren’t for everyone, but isn’t it nice to know they are easily accessible?

    chat blanc: It is quite the perfect ratio, isn’t it? Now I don’t have to pour all the Lucky Charms out onto the counter and painstakingly pick out all the marshmallows.

    Shieldmaiden96: Unfortunately, no chocklit, but if you e-mail him, he may try to get ‘em for you. And how enterprising were you, figuring out a way around the Lucky Charms dispenser. I probably would’ve ruined it for everyone by just tipping the thing over into my bowl to get ALL the marshmallows.

    PG: Good stuff indeed. Folks at home: don’t forget your cereal base!

    Susan: I left out the milk step. I didn’t mean to confuse anyone. Milk is, of course, very important. But not too much! You don’t want soggy marshmallows.

    The Hawg! Yes, I did threaten. And I may threaten again, because these are really good, and your kids will love them. Trust me!

    stephanie barr: Well, that’s the method I used to employ, only I used a sheet of wax paper instead of the floor. And, Stephanie? I think you’ve got another humor post here: “(which is why we stopped giving him soup).” I think I’m gonna have to look into this floor-eating idea. If it can prevent the common cold AND make me mind-bogglingly cute, I’m ready to hunker down right now!

    Regan: Another great idea. You could have pieces of different colors and shapes, and you collect pieces in a giant cereal bowl. The winner has the most marshmallows. I think you’re on to something here . . .

    Kathy: I don’t need no stinkin’ 12-step program! I can quite any time I want (shoves cereal marshmallows into face) And you leave my pusher . . . I mean my cereal marshmallow guy out of this!

    Steve | Trade Show Guru: It’s true. You know, they used to make Froot Loops with marshmallows. I don’t know why it was discontinued. It was the best cereal ever.

  16. 16 brooke

    Oh my God that looks so delicous I want them now!!

  17. 17 Fancy

    I still think you should make rice krispie treats with them, think of how festive they would look!

    JD, I had no idea that you could buy cereal marshmallows! And that you could create what is basically a bowl of marshmallows with a very sparse underlay of cereal (which gives the whole thing its moral justification, not that this is really necessary)…Best part of that awful Lucky Charms cereal, the little marshmallows.

    I am glad you were there to eat them for us! And am also glad that the Marshmallow Guy was not really angry, but in fact very nice. Such a happy ending! :)

    brooke: I bet you do. Maybe I’ll give away my remaining bag as a prize.

    Fancy: Thanks for reminding me! I’m gonna do it. I love Rice Krispie treats and with these cereal marshmallows? I will rule the world.

    Lidian: Isn’t it a heart-warming tale? I was clued in to the whole cereal marshmallow thing by another reader, on the first cereal marshmallow post. It was like a dream come true.

    Musing: Give in. There’s no point fighting it. We’re all helpless against the cereal marshmallow.

    feefifoto: Ooh! Toasting? No, I haven’t. Hmmm. Should I put ‘em on a graham cracker or something? I wonder about microwaving. You guys have some great ideas.

    Tim: I would love to visit the town of Cereal. Do you think they give out free samples? And . . . OK. Maybe Froot Loops isn’t the healthiest of the candy cereal category. But I do believe it’s fortified with . . . a vitamin of some sort?

    Jen: Aw, thank YOU! What a nice comment to read first thing in the morning. I think cereal marshmallows can do a lot more than we give them credit for. They certainly always put a smile on my face. Thanks for stopping by!

    Jeff: Sneaky! Let’s see if it works. I know you want a Pimpjuice hat.

    Maureen: I’m so glad you can now stop worrying. I think the entire Internet just breathed a sigh of relief. Or maybe that was a giant sugar shiver.

    flit: It was cool, wasn’t it? And how funny that you were “snagged” by the first marshmallow post. See? Cereal marshmallows really can do everything. Where would I be without you and Stephanie?!

    Wayne John: All right! (bursts into a quavering rendition of “It’s a Marshmallow World in the Winter . . . “)

    Erik: Great! These cereal marshmallows deserve to be eaten worldwide. Thanks for stopping by and spreading the love.

    Jessica Kassensysteme: Thank you! (Are you by any chance . . . German?)

    Daisy the Curly Cat: I hope so! I think you would really enjoy them. You can do what Prudence does: play with them for hours until they are coated with dust, then chomp them.

    You shameless hussy! I didn’t even know you could by cereal marshmallows by themselves. I thought it was just part of the cereal. And what is that with the sweet marshmallow dust? Actually, it sort of looks like that colored sugar candy that came in straws and we called pixie sticks or something like that. I guess after you’ve eaten all your marshmallows, you can write a post called, “I went into a sugar coma so you don’t have to”…

    I remember your post about the marshmallows before and I’m glad this story had a happy ending.

  46. 46 JD

    cardiogirl: They did seem a bit stale, but it was more than that. They just plain sucked. The guy claimed that I’d gotten a “kosher” batch, which lacked gelatin. I was sure the new and improved marshmallows wouldn’t be any better, but THEY ARE!

    Christa: I don’t think I ever completely recover from my morning’s sugar high (I’m careful to keep feeding it throughout the day so I never crash). Thanks for the offer of an intervention, but if sugar is wrong, I don’t wanna be right. As for purple marshmallows — ask him! He’s very accomodating!

    Baron von Rochester: Oh, dear. It’s so hard for me to understand how these fake, colored, sugary bits of processed sugar could NOT be appealing to everyone. Thank god I was here to eat them for you.

    Preston: HA! I AM a shameless hussy! See the fun things we can do as adults? Oh, boy, if that sugar dust tastes like Pixie Stick dust? I’m in heaven. I’ll let you know—as soon as I wake up from my sugar coma.

  49. 49 Janna

    I went back and read your previous marshmallow experience, seeing that your previous cereal base consisted of half a bowl of Rice Krispies.
    Thus I found it terribly amusing that this time the base had a mere smattering of Froot Loops. Fewer than 20. :)

    I LOVE cereal marshmallows. Love Lucky Charms. And I agree, if they don’t make your teeth hurt, it’s not worth it. There’s a certain texture that is “just right”.

    Now I’m craving Lucky Charms, with about a gallon of extra marshmallows. Can’t wait to hear those brain cells sizzle and hum as I run laps around the ceiling.

    I also loved how you called Walgreens “my one-stop shop for junk food and drugs.” :)

    Joe: I haven’t tried them that way, but I’m going to. I think they would be awesome.

    Grandy: The hat is sweet, but not as sweet as mah marshmallows. At times I did get only a big mouthful of marshmallows–no cereal. And it was good.

    Janna: HA! Yeah, I learned last time: not too big of a cereal base! It’s so nice to meet a fellow Lucky Charms lover. And believe me, they’re SO much better with about 100 X more marshmallows. And now you know where to git you some!
