Just read that they are reducing the sugar content in Lucky Charms, since they were banned over here because of the high sugar content I wonder if maybe finally we might get them back!

There is too much sugar in pretty much every cereal packet nowadays, i think all companies need to reduce as much as possible.
Even most milk contains high amounts of sugar, so most people are getting a double whammy.

The sell them in Selfridges... Saw them last week ;-).

You can get them at lots of places in the uk, but they're all at bloody rediculous prices.
I'm not paying £8 for a box of cereal thanks!

You can get them in several places, my teeth rott and my stomach churns under the sugar pressure.

god i love these as a child! used to throw away the cereal and just eat the charms tho lol!

I bought and ate a packet over in NYC a few weeks ago....I vaguely remember having them at some point when I was younger (only 21!) but Im sure the ones in america have more marshmallow than we ever had! It was about 50/50 with the cereal.....so saying that I think the sugar content will PROBABLY still be too much for over here when they reduce it......I saw it on the news over there, but it said the company as a whole were reducing sugar and named a few more cereals that were changing (glad I got the hyper-making-fun-stuff!!!!)

Ha ha yeah probably will still be too unhealthy to sell over here and yeah i know you can get them in selfridges - I went there christmas eve and got some :oops: I just wondered with this new change whether we'll be able to have them in our supermarkets again for a reasonable price!

I got some a while ago, wasnt what I remembered from when I was younger at all, very disappointing

People are saying that you can get these for around £8, but if you knew someone from the States or Canada, they only really cost around £1.50! imagine the profit people make on ebay!!

used to buy them from cybercandy but they are £6.50 a box. i love them, wish they would bring them back over here.

There is a shop in Milton Keynes that sells all this stuff and marshmallow fluff, pop tarts, mountain dew etc etc

I remember these, I even sent away for the heat sensitive mug, how very sad
