Lucky Charms Hot Cocoa

Last night at the grocery store I noticed Lucky Charms on a box in the Hot Cocoa section.

Hot cocoa, lucky charms, swiss miss, combo marketing, hot chocolateI decided that I needed to take a box of the Swiss Miss with Lucky Charms Marshmallows home with me. I was almost out of hot chocolate, which is how I refer to it.

It is interesting to see some new ways of marketing Lucky Charms in the past couple of years.

It would have been much better with bigger marshmallows that were fresh. Perhaps I should have looked to see if they still has some Lucky Charms Marshmallows on the shelf. They would have been just the right size for hot chocolate.

Good thing they didn’t cost any more than the regular hot chocolate 🙂

Actually, maybe they were a bit more as I usually don’t buy them with marshmallows.

Do you like your hot chocolate with or without marshmallows?
