Dulce de Leche Cheerios and other 2012 products unveiled at General Mills
For most of us the new year means either giving up old habits or trying to stay on the straight and narrow and adopt new ones. For the Golden Valley-based food giant General Mills, 2012 means a slew of new products will be introduced to consumers.
Two new cereal flavors, both from Cheerios, are slated to hit shelves in January: caramel-flavored Dulce de Leche and the Peanut Butter Multi-Grain variety.
Other products include a lactose-free yogurt from Yoplait that will be available in strawberry, peach, cherry, and French vanilla, and Nature Valley Protein Chewy Bars, an all-natural, fiber-rich snack bar with 15 percent of the recommended daily intake of protein. Kid-friendly Pillsbury Mini-Waffles should also be showing up in grocery store freezer sections by late January.
