Toasted Coconut Cheerios Are Coming to Stores in November
Sick of pumpkin? Try these.
Well, it looks like we won't have to wait too much longer for Cheerios' latest flavor. Earlier this week, General Mills told Delish that Toasted Coconut Cheerios will arrive in major grocery stores next month, and that the suggested box price is $2.99. In the meantime, Cheerios has been doing a little promoting of their own:
Recently, when a new cereal comes out, it’s tied to a franchise, covered in all sorts of artificial who-knows-what, or both. So is it really a wonder that fewer people are buying it? Thankfully, at least one cereal brand gets that people want something real for breakfast or a late-night snack. And that’s why we’re pumped about Cheerios’ latest limited edition flavor, Toasted Coconut.
The cereal was first spotted by instagram user @fueledbymunchies, who has since deleted the post. However, @foodiewiththebeasts was excited (and resourceful) enough to share it. According to the Cheerios website, the new flavor was inspired by “the delicious nutty flavor of coconut” and aspires to bring the “taste of a tropical vacation right to your breakfast bowl.” Hey, at least it’s a reprieve from all the aggressive pumpkin marketing.
Like the other naturally inspired new Cheerios flavors, Toasted Coconut Cheerios list whole-grain oats as the first ingredient. To see the complete list of ingredients and nutrition facts, click here.
