It’s official: Lucky Charms is taking over the world. We’ve been witnessing the much-beloved cereal crossing over to a lot of snack and dessert treats lately. And one of its most intriguing ventures is probably the Lucky Charms Ice Cream. In January 2020, the new ice cream was announced. And it certainly had a lot of ice cream fans over the rainbow. I mean…who wouldn’t? It’s ice cream made with one of the most iconic cereals of our childhood! Who could possibly resist going for a scoop?
Edy’s/Dreyers is the genius behind the magical treat. And according to the official description, the Lucky Charms Ice Cream consists of a vanilla base with a cereal swirl and cereal marshmallows. We’ve all seen and tasted ice cream cones topped/covered with the cereal before, so we can probably try to imagine how good this fantastic new ice cream is. The Lucky Charms Ice Cream came paired together with Cinnamon Toast Crunch Light Ice Cream, which cereal-ously thrilled breakfast treat fans everywhere.

The sweet news has circulated among Instagram’s swiftest snack sleuths, like @junkfoodmom and @junkfoodonthego. On the other hand, other sweet-toothed Instagrammers like @candyhunting, @i_need_a_snack, and @snackgator were lucky enough to get their hands on the cereal-flavored ice cream. And they all agree on one thing: it’s magically delicious! According to their reviews, it tastes like milk that’s had some time to absorb the sugary goodness of the cereal.

It’s Review Time! ?? They’re after me Lucky Charms…and Ice Cream? ? So it looks like @luckycharms decided to follow @cinnamontoastcrunch and go frozen! I present, Lucky Charms Ice Cream! • • So Lucky used his magic to turn the whole box of Lucky Charms into a wonderful swirly ice cream treat and I couldn’t be happier! Now I spotted these actually at a second @quiktrip that I stopped into to get gas and BAM there it was! As with the CTC it was only 2.00$ for a pint so not bad at all! The artwork on this one is just as awesome; you have a picture of the ice cream smack dab in the middle with the Lucky Charms logo right above and a 4 leaf clover that says “New”! And then there’s a rainbow swirling around with multiple marshmallow pieces flying around the whole container! Now the smell wasn’t any different, just a normal vanilla ice cream smell! The taste was SPOT ON, I swear they just froze the milk you have once you’re finished with a bowl of Lucky Charms! The creamy and sweet vanilla Ice Cream pairs so well with the cereal taste that’s added in and the best part about it: MARSHMALLOWS! Swirled throughout the whole ice cream tub are whole marshmallows, I mean how cool is that! Now I didn’t like this as much as the Cinnamon Toast Crunch, but this was still a great ice cream! 7/10 ?

Here is the new Lucky Charms flavor from Edy's/Dreyer's! This has a vanilla frozen dairy dessert base, a cereal swirl, and Lucky Charms marshmallows. I reviewed the Cinnamon Toast Crunch flavor yesterday and wasn't a fan. I was really surprised by the Lucky Charms flavor. It's actually good! The 'ice cream' still isn't great quality – it doesn't even qualify as real ice cream and has quite a bit of air mixed in (overrun for all the ice cream enthusiasts out there). However, this base has flavor! The description says it's vanilla with a cereal swirl, but there's no visible swirl and the whole thing tases like sweet cereal milk. The Lucky Charms marbit pieces have that classic marshmallow flavor distinctive to Lucky Charms cereal. 7/10. I recommend picking up this flavor and skipping the Cinnamon Toast Crunch. Found them both at Hy-Vee.

OMG GUYS! ? New Cinnamon Toast Crunch and Lucky Charms ice cream is hitting shelves now! Cereal is officially moving more into the snack world and we are okay with that. The question is…do they live up to the hype? Short answer: YES! The Cinnamon Toast Crunch has a cinnamon flavored base with cinnamon graham swirl AND cereal mixes mixed within. It tastes ridiculously spot on to what you what expect. The pieces of cereal found within add a nice texture to the ice cream, and the swirl adds a nice boost of cinnamon flavor. The flavor is just spot on. ? ? The Lucky Charms ice cream features a vanilla base with a “cereal” swirl and Lucky Charms marshmallows mixed within. This ice cream is “fluffy” in a fun way, because marshmallows are SO fluffy after all. The isn’t actual pieces of cereal in this one, but the marshmallows are very prominent. Eating this one is so fun because there’s so many vibrant colors from the marshmallows in every bite! We do think they could’ve added even more marshmallows to this, but it definitely reminds us of Lucky Charms cereal.? ? Both of these are a definite buy! We spotted them at Meijer for anyone wondering. And a big thanks to @thedeliciousdino for the tip to find them there!
“The artwork on this one is just as awesome,” @i_need_a_snack noted. And they’re totally right. It would be hard to miss this magically delicious ice cream, as it comes dressed in the cereal’s signature packaging. But with a scoop of ice cream in the center, instead of a bowl of cereal. The Lucky Charms Ice Cream in the freezer aisle of leading supermarkets like Walmart as early as February. The cereal-flavored frozen treat comes in a modest 14-ounce container, if you want it all for yourself. But if you’re feeling generous, you can also get it in 48-ounces.
