First new variety since 2017's chocolate peanut butterThe new flavor is “inspired by the fresh taste of blueberry” and made with real blueberry puree and natural flavors, according to a press release from the cereal giant. Think blueberry pancakes or blueberry waffles, but in cereal form. As with all varieties of Cheerios, Blueberry Cheerios will be gluten free, and thankfully, there are no artificial flavors.

"Summertime Blues" by one-hit wonder Blue Cheer debuted at #88 on the Billboard Hot 100 for the week ending March 2, 1968.  It spent 13 weeks on the chart, peaking at #14
