The time has come to say goodbye to one of the classic Lucky Charm marshmallows.

Since 2008, the yellow hourglass marshmallow has been included in every box—but come this spring, it will officially be retired.

This isn’t the first time Lucky Charms has switched up the variety of shapes and colors. The original line-up, which debuted in 1963, included green clovers, pink hearts, orange stars and yellow moons. Since then, only the pink heart has remained in the mix.

The following shapes have all been sent to the Lucky Charms graveyard: blue diamond (‘75), purple horseshoe (’83), swirled whale (’86), red balloon (’89), rainbow (’92), pot of gold (’94) and shooting star (’98).

  What to Buy (and What to Skip) at Trader Joe's This Thanksgiving <p>Some were good, some were aggressively mediocre, and some were very, very bad.</p>I am, as has been well documented, a pretty big fan of the slightly twee grocery store known as Trader Joe’s. I love their reasonably priced and well-stocked cheese department. I love their convenient pre-cooked lentils and cans of turkey chili. I love this damn shaker of magic. As such, I was very excited to check out their Thanksgiving offerings, hopeful that I would find some gems that would make for an easier and more delicious holiday.
