Lucky Charms and Cocoa Puffs get super sweet holiday makeover

'Tis (almost) the season to be jolly — and very, very sweet.

We've already seen the onslaught of pumpkin spice madness, but now wintry-flavored foods are starting to appear on shelves.

There's nothing we love on a winter morning quite like a steaming mug of hot chocolate or a holiday-themed snickerdoodle cookie. Now, you can have both for breakfast!

General Mills has just released Hot Cocoa Cocoa Puffs and a brand new version of Lucky Charms.The new cereal features marshmallows, along with the usual chocolately puffs. And we won’t have to wait long to find out exactly how it tastes because it’s already available at Target right now for $3 box.

A representative for General Mills tells TODAY Food that the seasonal, limited-edition Hot Cocoa Cocoa Puffs won't just limited to Target but will soon coming major retailers nationwide in December.

If chocolate isn't really your thing, there's also a brand-new Lucky Charms flavor: Cinnamon Vanilla. Instead of the usual rainbow colors, this frosted cinnamon cereal, also now available at Target, includes marshmallows, but they're shaped like blue snowflakes and Frosty the Snowman. Sounds like a perfect Christmas morning breakfast to us. The new Lucky Charms are also slated for a wider release this December, too.

It's been quite the season for those of us who can't enough breakfast cereal. Last month, Cheerio's release a Chocolate Peanut Butter variety and Burger King even just launched a milkshake inspired by Cinnamon Toast Crunch Cereal. While these new foods might make our mornings a bit too sugary, we're excited to welcome them into the mix as holiday treats.
