Heart-Shaped Cheerios Are Making A Comeback, Just In Time For Valentine's Day

Just when you thought you survived the holidays, Valentine's Day sneaks up and catches you off guard! With this love-filled celebration just around the corner, we should expect to see some major rollout of all things love-themed. The holiday has inspired a plethora of incredibly strange gifts you can send to show your affection — according to Business News Daily, Valentine's Day has given birth to items like jewelry made from the ashes of the recently departed, risqué cross stitching kits, and dead flower bouquets. On the lighter end of the novelty spectrum lies Cheerios. 

According to Chewboom, General Mills has made the decision to roll out new Cheerios featuring happy heart shapes that can inspire a more wholesome lifestyle and arrives just in time for all of February's romance. The heart-shaped cereal can be found in a few flavors, including Blueberry, Cinnamon, Chocolate, Honey Nut, and original flavor Cheerios and rolls out to retailers at the end of January. The new shapes come as a limited-time promotion, so don't wait if this new cereal design has left your heart aflutter!

The perfect cereal to celebrate Valentine's Day

While we would like to associate the new cereal shape with a season of love, the realities lie much closer to the brand's mission of providing a healthy cereal that can potentially lower cholesterol. According to Business Wire, Cheerios released the new cereals to raise awareness for National Heart Health Month, which conveniently also encompasses all of February.

If you can't wait to get your hands on a box of this special cereal, you need to get a move on! According to Chewboom, the boxes of cereal should sell between $3.99 and $4.99, and to help inspire more awareness of National Heart Health Month, Cheerios plans to give away free boxes of Honey Nut Cheerios via rebate through February while supplies last.

For a festive way to celebrate Valentine's Day, don't skip out on breakfast — this important meal can not only help you stay full through the morning but can help get you in the romantic spirit. Keep an eye out for the new cereal soon and stay vigilant next time you go shopping. You definitely want to catch this romantic way to start your day while you can!
