press release published Monday announced that 15,000 boxes of the beloved treat are up for grabs during the giveaway. While the company has offered the "Marshmallow Only" cereal promotion twice before, more boxes than ever are available for lads and lassies to snap up this time around.

This time, there's a twist: Boxes will be filled with rainbow and unicorn marshmallows.
