General Mills Canada Brings Back Trix Cereal

For the first time since 2005, General Mills is making Trix cereal permanently available in Canada.

Fortified with nine vitamins and minerals and made from whole grain, Classic Trix Fruity Shapes cereal features fruity shape pieces in flavours like raspberry red, lemony lemon, orangey orange, wildberry blue, grapity purple and watermelon.

Trix first debuted the fruity shapes in Canada back in 1994, before being discontinued as a permanent offering in 2005. Trix later became available periodically in Canada as a limited time offering up until its most recent run in 2016. Summer 2019 marks the official return of Trix cereal in its iconic fruity shapes to Canadian shelves and the 60th birthday the iconic Trix Rabbit.

General Mills Canada says Classic Trix Fruity Shapes will start appearing on shelves in major retailers nationwide later this summer.
