The cereal companies have worked really hard to get artificial flavors and extra sugar out of their products over the past few decades. And the result has been . . . WORSE CEREAL.
General Mills has basically admitted it. And they just announced they’re permanently bringing back the, quote, “’80s taste” of four of their major brands: Trix, Cocoa Puffs, Golden Grahams, and Cookie Crisp.
Trix will come in its classic fruit shapes . . . Cocoa Puffs and Cookie Crisp will have a stronger chocolate flavor . . . and Golden Grahams will be made with actual honey.
One other big reason they’re doing this: Millennials are nostalgic for the cereals they grew up eating, but it’s a real letdown when the cereals don’t taste as good as we remember.
All four of the “retro recipes” are hitting stores now.
