About the company

Growing up with Cheerios
As one of the most iconic and trusted brands in America, millions of people have quite literally grown up with the great taste and nutritional value of Cheerios.
Cheerioats was invented in 1941, as the first ready-to-eat oat cereal that didn’t need to be cooked. It was created under the leadership of Lester Borchardt, the director of research. Lester worked at General Mills for more than 35 years and his daughter said he ate Cheerios just about every morning of his life.

In 1945, Cheerioats was rebranded as Cheerios. And the rest, as they say, is history. Through the years, Cheerios has become a staple in households across the country, because of its appeal for the whole family. From serving as the first finger food for many toddlers, to being part of a heart-healthy diet for adults, Cheerios provides a nutritional start to the day for every age.

Cereal Spotlight: Cheerios Launching an Ancient Grains Variety

 

In January, General Mills will introduce a new version of its flagship breakfast cereal, called Cheerios + Ancient Grains.

The new version of Cheerios will contain small amounts of quinoa, Kamut wheat and spelt along with the traditional oats.

"They're keeping their ears attuned to what's hot and trendy," says Topher Ellis, who's been monitoring the world of breakfast cereals ever since he and his two brothers fought over the prizes at the bottom of each new box. Topher co-authored The Great American Cereal Book: How Breakfast Got Its Crunch, and edits a newsletter on cereals called The Boxtop.

Food News: Cheerios to go GMO Free

 

 

Cheerios is going old school, relatively speaking. All boxes of the original-flavor cereal will soon have this label: "Not Made With Genetically Modified Ingredients." General Mills already uses non-GMO oats for Original Cheerios, but now the company says it will use non-GMO cornstarch and sugar as well. The change doesn't apply to other Cheerios flavors, and even the Original variety will have a qualifier in the fine print: The boxes will say that trace amounts of GMO ingredients could be present because of contamination during the manufacturing process.

In Mexico Cheerios Launches Limited Edition Flavors

On a recent trip to Walmart in Guadalajara we came across a display for limited edition Cheerios cereal.  For most of it´s history Cheerios has been churning out the plain flavored o´s we all came to love as children.  Recently as innovation and competition has heated up in the cereal category we have seen long standing brands feel the need to get in on the act, it´s about time.

Plain or no flavor (boring) cereals are not going to get you very far in today´s highly competitive breakfast category.  Newer varieties included light, healthy, organic, all natural and gluten free  just to name a few.  There is a strong need to be more creative and daring when it comes to flavors if you are not going to cater to a niche claim like organic or gluten free.

The limited edition Cheerios flavors include the following: Banana Nut, Chocolate and Cinnamon Burst. Our guess is that whichever sells the best during this limited time will continue on but you never know.  Variety is good and it´s good to see Cheerios branching out into new areas.  The breakfast category will continue to expand into new frontiers beyond just new flavors and we expect to see continued innovation in this area.
