From: General Mills
Introduced in 1989
"The apple sweet crunch that's sweet to munch."
This cereal has been described on the box as a "naturally sweetened whole grain oat & corn cereal." In the early 90's, the box also noted that is was "made with real apples."
Many television commercials during this cereal's early days told consumers to "listen to the apple sweet crunch of a whole new O."
One television commercial, possibly from 1991, featured two characters name Apple and Cinna-man whose job it was to save the cereal's apple and cinnamon sprinkles from bad guys. This ad was unique in that there's no mention of sprinkles in any other advertising we've found for this cereal.
A commercial in 1996 asked the question, "What's new about the taste of Apple Cinnamon Cheerios?" Actors were shown sampling the cereal, each giving their opinion. This is their combined answer:
"The apples and the cinnamon taste better... It's baked in... I taste apples... cinnamon... and brown sugar... It's baked in. Now Apple Cinnamon Cheerios taste even better because it has a baked in apple cinnamon taste."
Company Description: Officially created in 1928, General Mills traces it's history back to the 1860's and the ownership of two flour mills. Since then, the company has become the world's 6th largest food company - marketing to over 100 countries... Read on and see all cereals from General Mills

This has been my favorite cereal every since I first got to eat cereal. I've gone through one box a month for the last 20 years. I hope they never stop making it. I'd be totally lost. Apple Cinnamon Cheerios forever!

This cereal leaves some of the tastiest milk there is when you're done with it. Anybody besides me wish they'd sell cereal-flavored milk in bottles? How great would *THAT* be, eh? Like Cinnamon Toast Crunch milk, Peanut-Butter-Puff milk... Agghhhhh... Such deliciousness would tear a hole in the space/time continuum.

Just okay is an appropriate characterization. The taste isn't bad but it is too sweet for my taste buds. It does not hold a candle to the original.

If you like Honey Nut Cheerios and Cinnamon Toast Crunch you will likely enjoy these as well!

A little too sweet for my liking. I'll stick with the original.

My personal favorite type of Cheerios. Note that I eat all my cereal dry, so I have no idea if they get soggy or anything, but they're amazing dry. Sweet, but not too sweet.
