This month, General Mills started unveiling many of its more than 50 new products for its 2015 lineup. The Minneapolis-based company’s new products focused on a variety of emerging food trends.
With more consumers placing value on better-for-you options, gluten-free offerings and high protein foods, General Mills took these demands and created flavorful, innovative products with simple ingredients. “I’m very excited about the quality of our new products. We’ve deeply engaged with our consumers and we’re creating foods that meet their needs,” says General Mills’ Jeff Harmening, executive vice president and chief operating officer, U.S. Retail.
Honey is featured in many of General Mills’ 2015 products, and here are a few of them.

This light, crunchy granola mix features the well-known cereal Chex and combines it with almonds and honey nut clusters. On top of being gluten-free, this sweet granola mix is made with no artificial flavors and no high fructose corn syrup.
