So now there is 2 boxes known to exist. I have the second one too - sold the first one. Yes - this was the FIRST departure from regular Cheerios - before Honey Nut Cheerios. Honey Nut Cheerios won the taste test and Cinnamon went away in less than 2 years. Also - Honey Nut Cheerios cam out late 1976 - as my series 10 box is from 1977.

Was this an early version of Honey Nut Cheerios?

I want to know if General Mills will ever bring back this cereal because I wasn't even born when it came out so they should bring it back so that anyone who didn't try it can.
