The cereal and snack aisle has some favorite treats looking a little different. General Mills has done it again. From a taste of nostalgia to a new flavor mash-up, the excitement over these new food offerings is hitting a new high.

Food trends sometimes borrow from favorite flavors. While there can be many discussions about bold flavors and exploring new cuisines, many people want a taste of nostalgia. That bite of familiar yet presented in a new way can have them running to the store to fill the cart with all that deliciousness.

General Mills is proving yet again that it has created that perfectly crave-worthy offering that is a touch familiar yet new at the same time. When a food offering has just as much appeal to a parent as it does to the kids it ensures that the food will make it in the shopping cart time and again.

What are some of the new General Mills offerings?

Limited-Edition Lucky Charms Cinnamon Toast Crunch Mix

Cereal mash-ups have been huge hits with cereal lovers. While some people might have done this mix-up at home or have longed to have two cereals in one, these types of offerings hit the right chord.

By combining the Cinnamon Toast Crunch with Lucky Charms, the flavor has that right combination of sweet, warm spice. It is the flavor combination that people might not have considered, but one that they will want again. And, that cereal milk in the bowl might be the ultimate pot of gold.

Cinnamon Toast Crunch Popcorn

Since that Cinnadust can make almost anything taste even better, the Cinnamon Toast Crunch Popcorn offers the salty sweet combination that has people grabbing another bag. While the Cinnadust glaze on each piece adds to the sweetness, the flavor is a more layered than a traditional caramel popcorn.

Cocoa Puffs Popcorn

Another snack offering, the Cocoa Puffs Popcorn is said to offer the “Great Chocolately Taste” but without the cereal bowl. Thinking about this snack, it is another take on that salty/sweet snack combination. And, consider adding this popcorn as a topping to some baked treats. It might be the flavor and texture boost that will have everyone talking.

Chex Mix Bars

Who hasn’t used Chex Mix in a variety of recipes. From Muddy Buddies to the classic recipe, that cereal has been transformed in many ways.

With the Chex Mix Bars, the on-the-go snack has the perfect combination of salty and sweet. Available in Birthday Cake, Cookies & Cream and Peanut Butter Chocolate, the three flavors could either be a snack or a dessert.

Limited-Edition Dunkaroos Cookie Dough

Who doesn’t love dunking those little cookies into that frosting? With the Limited-Edition Dunkaroos Cookie Dough, the flavor can be enjoyed straight from the oven. This ready-to-bake option features a Betty Crocker Sugar Cookie Dough. With vanilla frosting and rainbow sprinkles, it captures that flavor in a single bite.
