In today's world, every company is trying to come out with the next great thing. That's how it works. One company comes out with something earth-shattering, then another company tries to top it, and so on. That's how that competition is supposed to work.

Well, Pillsbury has rolled (get it?!?!) out their next great idea. The great idea this time? Lucky Charms cookie dough.

Don't get me wrong. I'm a big fan of the Lucky Charms cereal. I have been for as long as I can remember. But, I don't know if I'm sold on the idea of the Lucky Charms cookies. There's just something in me that screams, "No." I guess it's just the thought that Lucky Charms should ONLY be a cereal food.

However, I could be wrong. Maybe this could really be the next big thing. Maybe Lucky Charms cookies will be the best cookie that anyone could ever buy.

Or, maybe not.

Either way, the new cookie dough is now on the shelves at a few select retail stores, and will be on shelves nationally in January 2020. That means that you could be celebrating the new year with the new type of cookie, and it might even be "magically delicious".

In the meantime, don't forget to keep your traditional Lucky Charms cereal stocked, in case you can't get your hands on the cookie dough fast enough!
