161. Natural Lucky Charms?


Lucky Charms have always been favorite.  I love them.  The kids love them.  Too bad those little marshmallows are positively chop full of artificial colors and a numerous other ingredients that aren’t good for you.

Enter Three Sisters Marshmallow Oaties, a much more natural version of my childhood love.

Yum

There are still a few ingredients I’m not happy about, I’ll pick these hands down over the more conventional option.  Best part is, unlike some other “natural versions” of conventional cereals, these are quite satisfying.  They are so tasty!  I like them.  The kids like them.  All is good in my world. 🙂

Check out the ingredient comparison.
