General Mills Is Releasing These 8 New Cereals
Many Americans agree that one specific breakfast food is the tastiest way to kick off the day. Whether you like Cinnamon Toast Crunch or Reese's Puffs, nothing beats that feeling of satisfaction when ice cold milk hits a freshly poured bowl of cereal. Though a certain brand likely claims a spot in your kitchen pantry, it's always fun to step outside of your comfort zone at the grocery store. Thanks to one beloved cereal maker, there are not one but eight different opportunities to do so.
General Mills just unveiled eight new cereals, which include updated takes on three of the most popular cereals in America alongside a new box inspired by a fan-favorite superhero series. Plus, there's an entire product line featuring cereals made with real nut butters and ample servings of whole grains. (Related: The 100 Unhealthiest Foods On the Planet)
Kicking things off is CinnaGraham Toast Crunch, which combines the sweet honey flavor of graham crackers with that iconic cinnamon taste that warms your heart. Next comes Reese's Puffs Cluster Crunch, which provides a new bite courtesy of light and crispy corn cereal clusters. In its final twist on the classics, General Mills is offering Strawberry Banana Cheerios, which are made using real strawberry and banana purée.
If your kids aren't already fans of Cinnamon Toast Crunch or Reese's Puffs, there's another fun option for them available in this new line-up. PJ Masks Cereal, which is based on the beloved series of the same name, offers a way for your kiddos to enjoy their animated friends away from the screen.
