Soft, big Lucky Charms marshmallows headed to stores

These aren't the chalky little marshmallows you'll find in Lucky Charms cereal. Thanks to a collab with Jet-Puffed, large, soft versions of the cereal's hearts, moons, stars, and clovers will be available nationwide indefinitely in September.

Fun fact: According to an old General Mills press release (via Wikipedia), each of the marshmallow's shapes have magical "powers."

Hearts – power to bring things to life Shooting Stars – power to fly Horseshoes – power to speed/slow down time Green Clovers – luck, but you will never know what kind of luck you will get Blue Moons – power of invisibility Rainbows – instantaneous travel from place to place Red Balloons – power to make things float Unicorn – according to the inaugural cereal box, unicorns can "cleanse water with a touch of their horn," "heal whatever troubles you," and "always know when you are telling the truth" Moon – power to change alternate gravity

It appears you'll only be able to harness the powers of the pink hearts, blue moons, yellow stars, and green clovers with this new product.
