The makers of Lucky Charms finally realized the only reason people eat their cereal, to get to the marshmallows.

At least that's how it worked for me as a kid. Eating the toasted oats in a bowl of Lucky Charms was worth it knowing I'd get a marshmallow or two per spoonful.

That's why it's so exciting to see General Mills giving away boxes of marshmallow-only Lucky Charms.

This isn't the first time General Mills has done this giveaway. They awarded 10 winners a box of marshmallow-only Lucky Charms in 2015, but this year, they've upped it to 10,000. Now everyone has a realistic shot at winning the cereal.

It's really simple to enter to win too. Inside specially marked Lucky Charms boxes, there's a code. Enter the code at to see if you just won.

If you did, expect a package in the mail a few weeks. If you won the marshmallow-only Lucky Charms in the Rockford area, you can expect to hear from me too. There's no way I can let this pass by without giving them a try.
