How can they get by with calling those disgusting little bits of chalk in breakfast cereal "marshmallows".

Asked by ibstubro (18804points) February 1st, 2014

I mean, really. I’m not a fan of marshmallows, but at least they have a little appeal.

Clearly you are hell bent on tormenting me. lol
I can still FEEL in the depths of my brain and body the SOUND of those marshmallows in Lucky Charms cereal squeeking like against my teeth like little bits of plastic against your teeth.
They are not meant to be edible.

Literal LOL @Coloma!

^^^ You see how traumatizing those evil little bits were to me I couldn’t even write a coherent post above. lol

They really call them “mashmallows”?
To me they’re nothing but cookies of some sort. My family even has a name for it: “breakfast cookies”.

Sometimes I add those baby marshmallows to my hot chocolate or coffee!

I still remember, @Coloma, begging my mom until she bought a box of Count Chocula, and her forcing us to eat it until it was gone. Squeaky chalk bits, and all.

You can get little cookies (perhaps Cookie Crisps?), @Mimishu1995, but Lucky Charms have what’s advertised as “Marshmallows” in them.

At least they melt if you warm them, @Smitha. (Long time, no see!)

Hah, Count Chocula,
I’m a Chex and Raisin Bran girl, and Cherrios. The only sugary cereals I like are Corn Pops and The Puffed Wheat Sugar Crisp cereals and Frosted Mini-Wheats. Cocoa Krispies are good too. Oh no…I am now thinking of eating something sweet.

I liked Honey Comb for a long time. As an older kid, I ate the heck out of Grape Nuts, but I preferred chocolate milk as the sweetener. Frosted Mini Wheats are a good dry snack…like a Triscuit with sugar instead of salt. And yes, Corn Pops were a long standing fav, @Coloma

Greek yogurt with some added chopped walnuts – the Breakfast of Champions!

You know, with middle finger and thumb, those little squeaky bits can be flicked really well. It is very funny to flick them at a dog’s nose. They try to catch it, then when they succeed, they have a real battle deciding what to do with it.

ANOTHER LOL @Jonesn4burgers.

Gave me a visual.

Always in the minority! I love the squeaky, chalky, faux marshmallow thingies in cereal. They’re the best part.
I don’t know what ya’ll are talking about.

ibstubro's avatar

Open up, @Katniss. @Jonesn4burgers has a new, decided, nose to aim at!

Katniss's avatar

@ibstubro And if she hits me in the eye and blinds me? Then what?
I’d have to spend the rest of my life explaining to people how @Jonesn4burgers blinded me with Lucky Charms. How humiliating would that be??

Jonesn4burgers's avatar

@Katniss Sure, worry about “What if”, but you just made me laugh, and I think I peed a little. Now I have to live that down.

ibstubro's avatar

Oh, Quisps. Now I have a whole new set a problems to solve.

@Katniss. One eye! You merely have to buy a pirate outfit, the talk, and an eye patch.

@Jonesn4burgers I think if you shovel a handful of those ‘marshmallow’ pellets down your panties they will take care of the pee?
