We’re in the middle of a milestone for General Mills cereals. As of today, 75 percent of our cereals no longer include artificial flavors and colors from artificial sources. Just last month, we released seven cereals with new recipes, including Trix, Reese’s Puffs, Cocoa Puffs, Golden Grahams, Chocolate Cheerios, Frosted Cheerios and Fruity Cheerios. Cereal is in 90 percent of households. We all grew up with it. We all loved it. Yet, our tastes and preferences can change. We wanted to update our recipes to deliver what people want in their cereal today. We’re excited to share these new cereals and celebrate that we’re one step closer to having all General Mills cereals free of artificial flavors and colors from artificial sources by the end of 2017. Love cereals again.
