General Mills

General Mills is one of the “top-tier” cereal companies, with countless breakfast classics in under its belt, including Cheerios, Chex, Cinnamon Toast Crunch, Count Chocula, Cookie Crisp, and dozens of others, some of which don’t start with the letter C.

Founded in Minneapolis in 1856 by Cadwallader C. Washburn, General Mills has since grown into a Fortune 500 company and one of the largest food corporations in the world. Its global net sales totaled $16 billion in 2010.

The General Mills company mission is “to nourish everyone by making their lives healthier, easier and richer.”


Bowl of Apple Cinnamon Chex.

Apple Cinnamon Chex

A good cereal that I’d like to eat again, but don’t see myself getting nostalgic over twenty years from now; Apple Cinnamon Chex lived up to my expectations, but didn’t necessarily exceed them.

Basic 4

Is it basic? Are there four of whatever it is? Find out!

Batman v Superman: Batman

Note: this is the second half of a two-part review! Be sure to read the Superman cereal review! Based on looks alone, the Batman cereal is a clear winner. Even though we’ve seen little bat-shaped cereal pieces before, they easily beat out the vague, miscolored “Superman Symbol” pentagon shapes of the Superman cereal. Also, they

Batman v Superman: Superman

Superman never made any money saving the world from Solomon Grundy. That’s why he licensed his image for this interesting caramel crunch cereal.

Berry Berry Kix

The original Berry Berry Kix is on my personal list of top 5 cereals, and overall it’s still a pretty good cereal, and I can’t complain. But compared to what it once was, with just a slight change in shape, it really does feel like it’s missing something!

Cheerios + Ancient Grains

Not bad, but really, “ancient”? Gimmicks aside, it’s very reminiscent of the Honey Nut Cheerios Medley Crunch, just with Multi-Grain replacing the Honey Nut part.

Chex Clusters Fruit & Oats

If you’re into Chex and berries, you’ll like the flavor. I liked it. I didn’t love it, but not everything has to be a home run.

Bowl of Chocolate Lucky Charms.

Chocolate Lucky Charms

Overall, a surprisingly good cereal considering it’s such an obvious idea. Chocolate Lucky Charms!

Cocoa Puffs with Stars

Available for a limited time only! Why? I don’t know. It’s tasty, but the star shaped pieces don’t really add a whole lot.

Dora the Explorer cereal box

Dora the Explorer Cereal

Mild cinnamon flavor, but only compared to intense cinnamon cereals like Cinnamon Toast Crunch. Actually seems like a good, reasonable amount. For such a small cereal, it sits pretty heavy once you’ve finished a bowl. Not complaining.

Golden Grahams

It’s tasty, has a nice texture, and you can use it to make s’mores-themed cereal bar things. No complaints here!

Lucky Charms

Despite its few flaws, Lucky Charms is one of the standards of sugary breakfast cereals.

Peanut Butter Toast Crunch

Despite its shortcomings, still a good cereal, and I like to see some new spins on an old classic like this–even though I don’t consider “peanut butter toast” a thing! I mean, people put peanut butter on toast, but do they call it “peanut butter toast”? But anyway, overall not bad. Would eat again!

Raisin Nut Bran

Once again, a pleasant surprise. A “boring,” adult cereal that has a lot more going on below the surface than you’d expect.

SpongeBob SquarePants Cereal

Overall, not bad, even if on the whole the flavor was a little bland, as branded kids cereals tend to be. Perhaps it has less sugar as an attempt to convince moms and whiny activists that it’s not the worst cereal kids could be eating? Who knows.
