Unicorn Cereal, Dessert For Breakfast
Laura Lee - April 2, 2018


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.

Usually, we can tell more or less how a cereal will taste based on several factors.  Perhaps the look, the brand, or the name of the cereal will give it away.  Cocoa Puffs will taste like cocoa, and Apple Jacks will taste like apples. Simple. But when Unicorn Cereal comes out, where should our mind go? Is it like magical? Well, that’s why we’re here to fill you in with the juicy details.


If you haven’t yet had the pleasure of trying this legendary breakfast food, then you might have seen some snaps of it on your Insta feed, and it’s without a doubt a sight not to miss.  It’s similar to blue, purple and pink Fruit Loops, but it’s so much more. It taste just like cupcakes, legit.



Is this really a good idea, dessert for breakfast? Of course it is! It’s completely genius. Cupcakes are always a good idea.  Especially so if they come in sugary cereal form.  Whether you like your cereal dry or with milk, you won’t be disappointed with your Unicorn Cereal life changing experience.


This cereal became available on store shelves in March, and if you’d like to get yourself some (which we seriously recommend), you’re best off doing a search through the Kellogg’s store locator.  If you were ever once a child, then there’s no doubt you had begged your mom to have cupcakes for breakfast, and that she said no. Well now is your chance to sparkle every morning and live in your perfect fairy tale.
