Stop everything: Pumpkin Spice Cheerios are here so summer is basically over
Summer has yet to ease up off the gas, but apparently the folks over at Cheerios couldn’t wait for the overwhelming heat and humidity to subside before re-introducing the celebrity of fall flavors. That’s right — we’re talking the return of ~pumpkin spice~, guys. Finally, the long-awaited Pumpkin Spice Cheerios are officially a thing. Don’t bother giving us side-eyes of suspicion, because this is, in fact, real life.
Back in April, General Mills announced the gluten-free, limited-edition Pumpkin Spice Cheerios, which are available in stores beginning this month. Popsugar noted the cereal’s “crunch and spice finish,” which basically sounds like bliss in a box.
As you’ll recall, last year the world collectively lost its mind over McDonald’s pumpkin spice coffee. Additionally, the new flavor-induced mania spawned a pumpkin spice horror film and even had people dying their hair to match their Pumpkin Spice Lattes.
Given the long-standing obsession with all things pumpkin spice, we can’t imagine that the reception of these Cheerios will be any less intense. We can’t wait to give them a try along with all the other new pumpkin spice-flavored treats that fall is sure to bring.
