General Mills is doing something it hasn’t done in 15 years: introducing a new breakfast cereal.

It’s called Tiny Toast. The cereal comes in strawberry and blueberry flavors — flavors the company says are actual strawberry and blueberry powder, no artificial flavors involved.

The Christian Science Monitor, however, notes that Tiny Toast does have 9 grams of sugar per serving, on a par with other mainstays of the sugary cereal camp such as Reese’s Puffs and Frosted Cheerios.
