A long, long time ago, in a pantry far, far, away, Trix were originally round. And there were only three flavors: orangey-orange, lemony-yellow, and raspberry-red. And you enjoyed it.

I once had a recipe that involved using Lucky Charms, mixed with peanuts, M&Ms candies, yogurt-covered raisins, and Reese's Pieces candies, in time for St. Patrick's Day, called "Lucky Snack" or "Good Luck Snack". Mix above together, serve. Was an awesome snack to nibble on whenever I was hungry at work or at home.
