Lucky Charms first hit the cereal aisle in 1964 with bells, fish, arrowheads, clovers and X-shaped oat cereal, plus four marshmallow shapes, but the original prototype was actually made with Cheerios and chopped-up pieces of Circus Peanuts.

It has since gone through a few changes. In 1967, a sugar frosting was added to the oat cereal, and eventually the cereal featured eight marshmallow shapes, including pink hearts, green four-leaf clovers, yellow moons and orange stars. More than 40 “marbits,” as they’re called, have been introduced.

If you prefer your Lucky Charms as a snack, you can now buy just the marshmallows. Or, find the flavor in everything from pancake mix to Swiss Miss hot cocoa.

You’ll also find plenty of recipes if you want to do more than just eat Lucky Charms with milk or straight out of the box. For example, try these Lucky Charms Marshmallow Treats. The marshmallow treats call for just three ingredients, combining the cereal with miniature marshmallows and butter.

If you’re really adventurous in the kitchen, you can even try this Betty Crocker Lucky Charms Cake which takes a bit more work but only has seven ingredients and 15 minutes of prep time.
