New foods add to summer fun
Whether you’re having a pool party, hitting the wooded trails, or packing for a picnic, chances are that food will be at the center of these midsummer moments.
For those moments, General Mills is launching a summer line-up of great-tasting food made with simple ingredients, from snack bars to cereal to yogurt and ice cream.
We aim to serve the world by making food people love. And there’s a lot to love in our summer launches.
So bring us along.
In the U.S., we’re rolling out our new French-style yogurt, Oui by Yoplait. It’s cultured in the glass container that you’ll hold in your hand.
For breakfast and snacking, there’s Apple Cinnamon Toast Crunch and Blueberry Chex, the latter of which is gluten free.
