General Mills is introducing Pumpkin Spice Cheerios, a fall limited edition flavor that will launch around Labor Day.Cheerios is another brand that has suffered from an industrywide U.S. cereal slump. So, GM is relying on pumpkin spice and other innovations to boost sales. Sales of regular Cheerios, a 75-year-old brand, have slipped 18% since 2010.General Mills and Kellogg Co. have both updated their products to cope with shifting tastes, but the days of cold cereal dominating breakfast in the U.S. are probably over, said Ken Shea, an analyst at Bloomberg Intelligence.
