Golden Grahams Treats, OMG, Golden Golden Grahams Treats!

Seriously, what's it about these things that are so fricking good?  I loved Golden Grahams Treats ever since I was a kid. I grew up and they were taking out of my life when big companies decided the market in Canada was no longer good enough. That's an assumption, why else would they get rid of this beloved childhood nugget? Anyway, the trip of trips - you guessed it, Florida - would have me seeing this on the shelves at Walmart. I couldn't believe it, I think my jaw hit the floor. I had to regain my composure and be restrictive when I instinctively wanted to buy all of what they had in stock - America, you do NOT know how good you have it over there!

So fast-forward the clock a bit a year or two later and wouldn't you guess it, Golden Grahams treats are being sold @ Costco. Right here in Canada! My eyes light up and my heart started to race when I saw the stocked pallet of Golden array shining from the distance. It was just too good to be true! And these were the big boxes of 24, roughly 700g per package. Ask me how much I bought. 3. I bought 3 '24 cases of Golden Grahams Treats all for myself! I got home and couldn't wait to try it, but again I had to restrict myself and allow it to sit in the cupboard, so I can at least so it made it there and I had will-power. 

But that didn't last long. I waited long enough and I finally got to try these gems once again since I've last had them two years ago. They're still as awesome as I remember it. They treats I remember having though were I a little bit wider in frame and didn't have a chocolate surface. It also was a square, much like its rivalling treat, Rice Krispies. The golden grahams cereal pieces were just as rich and crunchy as they were before they hit the bowl, spent 5 seconds in milk and turned to mush. The marshmallow, the ooey-gooey marshmallow, is the glue that holds this thing together. And oh yeah, it was DEE-LISHOUS! General Mills, I thank you. Whatever reason you guys had to pull these treats out of Canada is forgiven, because it is SO worth having it back now after all those years! 

To my fellow Canadian brethren's, do not miss your opportunity to try this yummy piece of history, because they won't be there for long. They had it at Costco for a couple of weeks and then it was gone for months. I looked everywhere! Went to every Costco within a drive and didn't find it stocked. It was only at one Costco - luckily the one closest to my house - that I got my hands on these. 

As I write this, I can't help but think about that one scene from the The Simpsons where Homer's singing, "My Golden Grahams" so hilariously. But missing out on this is no laughing matter.
