New Blueberry Cheerios Are Coming Just In Time For Summer

Will you give these a try?

Are you a fan of blueberries in the morning? The ultimate breakfast fruit goes perfect in not only muffins, pancakes and waffles, but also on oatmeal and cereal or blended into a healthy smoothie.

If putting blueberries on top of your cereal is your favorite way to enjoy them in the morning, I have some news you’re definitely going to love. Instead of just adding blueberries to your bowl in the morning, you can now buy blueberry Cheerios.

The new Cheerios are made with blueberry puree and natural flavors and contain no artificial flavors or colors. They are also gluten-free and have 14 grams of whole grains per serving. And, of course, they’re blue!

If you don’t see them on store shelves just yet, you’ll be able to find them at major retailers nationwide soon this spring. The new, permanent addition to the Cheerios family costs around $3.99 for a 10.8-ounce box and $4.99 for a 19.8-ounce box.

Cheerios posted about the new release on Instagram, writing, “Inspired by the fresh taste of blueberry, these delicious O’s will be here just in time for spring.”:

This is far from the first fun flavor Cheerios has released over the years, though many of them are seasonal and only available for a short time, like peach and pumpkin spice. Other permanent flavors include maple and peanut butter. And Cheerios already has a berry-infused flavor, Very Berry Cheerios — which are not as colorful as the new blueberry cereal.

If Cheerios are a favorite of yours, there’s no sense in saving them just for breakfast. Check out these recipes for fried Cheerios that you can eat as a snack or take on the go. While many of the recipes call for some toppings that wouldn’t be great with the Blueberry flavor (like butter and oregano), frying them up with a little sugar or cinnamon sounds amazing.

Will you be trying the new blueberry Cheerios when they hit shelves near you?
