General Mills History

General Mills was originally founded in 1856 as the Minneapolis Milling Company by Robert Smith.

The name General Mills wasn’t adopted until 1928 when then named Washburn-Crosby merged with 26 other local mills.

In 1929, the company introduced Better Crocker coupons on the box tops of their products.

In 1965, the company acquired Rainbow Crafts, maker of Play-Doh.

In 1970, the company acquired Red Lobster, then only a 5 restaurant operation and expanded it nationwide.  In 1982, Olive Garden was created.  In 1995, the restaurants were spun off as a new company, Darden Restaurants.

In 2001, Pilsbury was acquired.

Today, General Mills produces many popular food brands including Betty Crocker, Yoplait, Totinos, Pillsbury, Green Giant, Cheerios & Lucky Charms.  In total, their portfolio is comprised of over 100 food brands.

My son sent off a birthday card printed on back of a box of Trix cereal
months ago to the rabbit . He was very excited about it becsuse it
promised him he would receive a gift packet from your company.
He waited for weeks standing daily at mail time and never got anything.
I realize you guys probably got lots of requests for this same priz
packet but i think its pretty crappy not to at least try to answer children
who are the major users of your cereal.. i contacted the company the fifteenth
day of Sept.2014 about this issue and was told the company failed
to order enough of these prizes because they miscalculated the
number of responses they’d get from doing this promotion!!
I know the rabbit isnt real but children are innocents and expect
things they are promised… im not buying anymore G M products til
this issue is addressed. Its not right to tell stories to kids. They
dont understand !!!

I ate one of your chocolate fudge brownies last night and almost choke to death on a piece of plastic that was inside. I was lucky but a small child might not have been.

I have been eating the fiber bars for years and recently found that most of them now state 20% fiber not 35% fiber. Why? What happened?

I have eaten almost solely Cherrios for breakfast for about 25 years.
No more.
Your decision to no longer use GM foods in this product was gutless.
Anyone with half a brain knows that every living thing has been genetically modified numerous times over the centuries. If you are not going to use GM material in your products just don’t make any edible products.
Henceforth I will avoid all General Mills products.

A package of Betty Crocker White Chip Macadamia Nut Cookie mix has been found to be rancid. The expiration date is not until 12 March 2014. I have never had this happen before. The only numbers on the envelop that I found were: AV 2052 4. These number are very hard to read and I suggest that the format be more user friendly. I have saved the envelope with the “smell” if you wish that I mail it to you.

Thank you!

thanks to your announcement about not using gmo grains in your cheerios product I won’t be buying them anymore. It disheartening to see a big corporation capitulate to probably the likes of Ronnie Cummins who is a crackpot leading the cause to eliminate gmo grains for any food products

I bought eight boxes of General Mills Fiber One cereal because they had a promotional code inside the box. For every two codes, you get a free movie ticket. They all said “invalid code” once I entered them online. I called a customer service number found on the websites only to be told that there is nothing they can do about it.

I’m out of work so it would be a treat to bring my family to the movie theater for free. What should I do next?

I have been a fan of cinnamon toast crunch for years. I experiment with reciepes 3 Came to mind cinnamon toast icecream sandwich, icecream bar with sprinkled cinnamon simmalar to strawberry crunch bar but cinnamost toast is greater because the famous crunch,last a 6 oz cup of vanilla cream sealed clear plastic cap with cereal and a spoon cereal especially this should be eaten not only breakfast a better and healthier summer
