Parents, did you know you can end the marshmallow cereal war in your home with one simple click?

Sure, you may fight the good fight in the cereal aisle as the little ones reach for the Lucky Charms, hoping to direct them to the better options.

Then, the battle continues at the breakfast table when one child protests that the other has more marshmallows in the bowl.

Finally, the struggle reaches epic proportions at the kitchen sink when you look down and see only a bowl of soggy cereal sitting there because tiny fingers skillfully picked out the colorful yumminess to enjoy.

Companies have jumped on the opportunity to bring peace and harmony to homes by dumping the cereal and selling just the marshmallows.

Products such as Melody Hills Farm Cereal Charms Marshmallows , Hoosier Hills Charms Original Cereal Marshmallows , and Kraft Cereal Marshmallows offer bulk bags of the “magically delicious” treats for everyone to add to their cereal, hot chocolate or baked treats.

Many reviewers, though, admit they eat them directly from the bag as a snack:

“A bowl full of just lucky charms marshmallows, otherwise known as living the dream. That is until you can't eat anything else. Before you know it, you are having them for lunch and dinner too”

Or, have figured out their inherent value to others:

“Greatest birthday gift for a 2 year old!”

And, parents are finally admitting that maybe they love the mini marshmallows, too, and are relieved that the battle is over. Here is some advice from another online review:

“Don't forget to keep them out of sight of the little ones and only bring them out after hours or while they're at school.”

All’s fair in love and war, after all.
