Kellogg’s Dropped New Mermaid, Unicorn and Birthday Cake Waffles

Lester

By Shel Silverstein

Lester was given a magic wish
By the goblin who lives in the banyan tree,
And with his wish he wished for two more wishes-
So now instead of just one wish, he cleverly had three.
And with each one of these
He simply wished for three more wishes,
Which gave him three old wishes, plus nine new.
And with each of these twelve
He slyly wished for three more wishes,
Which added up to forty-six -- or is it fifty-two?
Well anyway, he used each wish
To wish for wishes 'til he had
Five billion, seven million, eighteen thousand thirty-four.
And then he spread them on the ground
And clapped his hands and danced around
And skipped and sang, and then sat down
And wished for more.
And more...and more...they multiplied
While other people smiled and cried
And loved and reached and touched and felt.
Lester sat amid his wealth
Stacked mountain-high like stacks of gold,
Sat and counted -- and grew old.
And then one Thursday night they found him
Dead -- with his wishes piled around him.
And they counted the lot and found that not
A single one was missing.
All shiny and new -- here, take a few
And think of Lester as you do.
In a world of apples and kisses and shoes
He wasted his wishes on wishing.

We need to celebrate the little things in life, now more than ever! And luckily there is a lot of little good things to celebrate: Kellogg’s dropped mermaid, unicorn, and birthday cake waffles! This might not come as a huge surprise given just how trendy and popular colorful unicorn- and mermaid-inspired things are pretty much everywhere. The brand quietly released the sugar-rush-waiting-to-happen breakfast. The Unicorn Waffles are bright pink and taste like cotton candy, while the Mermaid Waffles are teal and blue-raspberry-flavored. But the sweetness overload doesn’t stop there — Kellogg’s also recently dropped brand-new Birthday Cake Waffles, which are made with yellow cake and rainbow sprinkles. Yeah, we’ll take one of each! Kellogg’s hasn’t yet shared any official information about these three releases, but they’ve all been spotted at a few grocery stores recently, including Albertsons, Safeway, and Vons. Plus, each item currently has a product page on the Walmart website, so that may be a sign they’ll be popping up on more store shelves soon. Until then, prepare yourselves and your pantry!
