American classics – just add milk
They say tomaydo, we say tomato, they say potaydo and we say potatah. But let’s not dwell on Uncle Sam’s linguistic failings. Let’s call the whole thing off and celebrate America’s superb breakfast cereals, chiefly Lucky Charms and Cap’n Crunch. Why? Because your globetrotting friends at Firebox have just got their hands on a double shipment. Yee-hah!
Inexplicably tricky to find in Blighty, these legendary US cereals have been brightening up breakfast time across the pond for over forty years, and now you can have yourself a real nice day and see what all the fuss is about.
First up, say ‘top o the morning’ (or something similarly stereotypical) to Lucky Charms. This oaty wholegrain cereal is sprinkled with a variety of multicoloured marshmallow ‘charms’, from hearts and stars to balloons and horseshoes. Chuck in a longstanding comedy mascot called Lucky the Leprechaun and you’re looking at a recipe for mega success. ‘Dey’re always after me Lucky Charms.’
Next, splice the mainbrace and shiver ya timbers because Cap’n Crunch has sailed into British waters. This deliciously sweet oat and corn cereal is an American institution, and its animated mascot Cap’n Crunch has captivated the nation with his Soggie-bashing antics for years. Confused? You should be because Cap’n Crunch has never been widely available in the UK. Until now.

They’re magically delicious!
Whether you’re a fan of Yankee doodle breakfasts, a homesick American, or a curious Brit looking to recreate that Stateside breakfast vibe without the attendant sunny side up/syrup and bacon nonsense, American Cereals are most definitely for you. Best of all you can live the American dream every morning…and then ruin it by watching Cheggers trying to give away twenty grand in the middle of Solihull. Y’all have a nice day, y’hear!

I ordered my firebox goodies on Monday and received them this morning and was really impressed with the quickness of delivery. Included in my goodies I bought were Lucky Charms, I must say I forgot how delicious they were until today, I hadn't had a bowl of them since I was 6 yrs old, and god how I've missed them. Lol. THANKYOU firebox for bringing the child out of me!

This stuff was awesome! I opened it straight away and shared it with my brother, but he'd had to much so I finished his off for him.

I remember Lucky Charms from when I was a kid and then they vanished. This Christmas I got a box. They taste as amazing as I remember and the little marshmallows are lovely. I would happily just sit down with the box full of milk and eat the lot!

I got the lucky charms and well like the slogan goes "there magically delicios" (excuse the spelling) yum so sugary though but worth the cost.
