Running a little late and don't have time to cook up a big breakfast? Grab a bowl of your favorite cereal. And for those who have not given up on their childhood favorite (no judgement, I'm a culprit too) there's nothing better than a bowl full of sugary goodness. Now, Lucky Charms and Cinnamon Toast Crunch cereals are stepping up in the breakfast world as it introduced its cereal as oatmeal. That's right, Lucky Charms oatmeal is now a real thing—a sweet-tooth's or breakfast lover's dream.

Cereal (in terms of popularity) has declined in recent years. However, there is still an abundance of flavors and brands galore. Now, these leading brands of cereal have officially changed the way you eat flavored oatmeal.

Available only in Canada (for now), Lucky Charms and Cinnamon Toast Crunch oatmeal is on the market. It's instant oatmeal—adding the ease and speed of breakfast that cereal also provides.

Since 1997, oatmeal's popularity as a breakfast item skyrocketed. Oatmeal provides a decent source for fiber, but the drawback to cereal as a flavor of oatmeal may be a potential decrease in nutritional value. The amount of sugar in this porduct may be higher than natural oats. Yet the idea of amping up and expanding cereal brands into other breakfast items may be marketing genius. 

This new invention opens up a whole new line of potential products for other cereal flavors. There are definitely some that should stay as cereal (like Frosted Flakes), but can you imagine Honey Nut Cheerios oatmeal? Yum. So as we anxiously await cereal oatmeal to arrive in the US, you can dream of other possibilities. The limit does not exist.
