Why don't they sell these in supermarkets at normal prices anymore?

    I'm talking about the cereal Lucky Charms!

    I've seen them in some shops for £11 or so and there's no way I'd pay that, no matter how good they are!

    Luckily my step dad just went on a business trip to the US so he bought me and my sister some back...yummm!

    So anyone know why they don't sell them normally over here rather than at extortionate prices?

    Because they have been discontinued here so the shop will have shipped them in from the US

    I love Lucky Charms! I pick out the marshmallows though. Then I'm left with the other not as good stuff. Sorry you can't get them over there. :(

    I remember when I went to Florida this year and we bought some for breakfast and I was thinking, God they're so cheap! Because I've only seen them over here for like £7 a box! But yeah they've been discontinued over here so they have to ship them over from the US which is why they cost a small fortune!

    I get them sometimes as a treat from Selfridges for like £8 a box. I used to have them all the time when I was younger, and I miss them! x
