Quick: how many Cheerios flavors are there? Five? Six? If this was 1999 then you’d be right: there were only five flavors in production until 2005. But nowadays there’s a whopping 14 different Cheerios varieties out there, and we bet you can’t name them all.
First, there were Cheerios, little rings of oats that were introduced in 1941. Then in 1976 came (the since discontinued) Cinnamon Nut Cheerios, and in 1979 the legendary Honey Nut Cheerios were rolled out. Only a few more (Apple Cinnamon, MultiGrain, and Frosted) were introduced over the next 20 years, but since 2005 there’s been a new Cheerios flavor launched nearly every year! Can you name them all? Unless you’re a serious Cheerios junkie, we bet you can’t. Well here they are; memorize them and prepare to blow away your friends at the bar this weekend:
