    I am really missing..........

    LUCKY CHARMS......!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I love those darn things. My daughter married a US Soldier who was based over here in the UK (when they met) and he was a sweetie and used to bring me Lucky Charms......!

    Than than bad boy moved back home and took my daughter with him.... miss her too (more than the Lucky Charms - LOL LOL LOL).

    After that I found a small franchise who had a small stall in a shopping centre in Cambridge who sold Lucky Charms... they were expensive (7.95....... approx $11.00 a box) but I didn't care... I NEEDED them. Sadly for the last 10 - 12 months they have not been at the shopping centre (think they have closed down as not too many people will pay 7.95 for a box of cereal in this ecconomy).

    I am now thinking of leaving home and moving to the States just to get some Lucky Charms.... no really, I just wanted to vent about my sweet breakfast tooth!

    Thanks for letting me moan.

    Hugs

    Wanna trade Lucky Charms for PG Tips and/or Branston Pickle (original recipe)??

    We have to pay outrageous prices for these staples too!! I think the Branston is $8.00 for a 520g jar and the Tips we pay $19.00 for 240 ct!!! YIKES!!

    I also crave Bangers & Mash but you can't ship those

    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    You might try contacting General Mills. http://www.generalmills.com/ProductLocator.aspx

    They might be able to help you locate a supplier.

    You might try finding someone who works on a local U.S. military base (Lakenheath or Mildenhall) - the PX there would probably have them. I'm sure someone would be willing to keep you supplied.

    You are probably nothing like me and like the cereal as well as the marshmallows, but since I really only like the charms in Lucky Charms, I've found you can just buy those:

    People who start projects and never finish them are cooler
    than people who never start projects at all.

    They have branston in squeeze bottles now, brought some back with me when I was home last time. Me I like Oxtail soup mix for my stews as well. Oh and wine gums. Blacmange powder, maltesers, fruit gums, fruit pastilles, Okay enough making myself hungry.

    Are you another english transplant and if so where from. I grew up in Ipswich.

    English sausages are so much better, think I have some recipes at home for them.

    Have thought about taking it to the meat market and having some made for me.

    I see you can order them so if you get the lucky charms make them up like rice krispies marshnallow treats using the charms instead of rice krispies. that way you can take them anywhere and are really magically delicous..

    It's easy to make the marshmallows for Lucky Charms! Put mini marshmallows in a food dehydrator. I do this every year and make a quart jar of them for hot chocolate. They last almost forever in an air tight jar. Added to Cheerios, it would make a nice sub for Lucky Charms.
    Got fabric?

    From Food.com
    The Almost Original Branston Pickle Recipe!


    By French Tart on August 15, 2007

    7 Reviews

    • Prep Time: 30 mins
    • Total Time: 2 hrs 30 mins
    • Yield: 4 1 lb Jars


    Ingredients

      • 9 ounces carrots, peeled and cut into small chunks
      • 1 medium swede, peeled and cut into small chunks
      • 4 -5 garlic cloves, peeled and finely chopped
      • 5 ounces dates, finely chopped
      • 1 small cauliflower, finely chopped
      • 2 onions, peeled and finely chopped
      • 2 medium apples, finely chopped, unpeeled
      • 2 medium finely chopped courgettes, unpeeled
      • 15 -20 small cornichons or 15 -20 small gherkins, finely chopped
      • 10 ounces dark brown sugar
      • 1 teaspoon salt
      • 4 tablespoons lemon juice
      • 3/4 pint malt vinegar
      • 2 teaspoons mustard seeds
      • 2 teaspoons ground allspice
      • 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper


    Directions

    1. Combine all the ingredients in a large saucepan and bring them to the boil.
    2. Then reduce the heat to a simmer and cook until the swede is cooked, but still remains firm, about 2 hours.
    3. Stir well to redistribute all of the vegetables.
    4. Bottle and seal in sterile and hot jars.
    5. Allow the pickle to age for a few weeks before using, this improves the taste and it will become more "mellow".
    6. Serve with cheese, ploughman's lunches, in sandwiches, with cold cuts and meats. This pickle is also wonderful when added to curries and stews.

    This thread made me smile. Years ago, a daughter of friends of ours, found out she was a severe diabetic, at age 17. So her diet completely changed. Her very favorite cereal was now taboo, Lucky Charms. About 5 years later, the family visited us, the daughter and two younger siblings loved going to the mall, every day because the ice cream store there had 'sugar free' ice cream sandwiches. She hadn't had an ice cream sandwich since the diet change.

    One morning at breakfast, she stated with a sigh, now if only they made Lucky Charms sugar free, life would be complete. Mid 40's now, she still longs for Lucky Charms.
