General Mills has officially notified its consumers that it is expecting to raise the prices of some of the people’s favorite cereal and snack brands starting in mid-January of 2022.

According to CNN, the price change is expected to affect “hundreds of items across dozens of brands” including, “Annie’s, Progresso, Yoplait, Fruit Roll-Ups, Betty Crocker, Pillsbury, Cheerios, Cinnamon Toast Crunch, Lucky Charm’s, Wheaties, Reese’s Puffs, Trix and more.” One of the company’s decision-makers has told CNN that the rise in prices will affect grocery and convenience store customers. For some particular items, customers can expect the price to increase by approximately 20% starting the beginning of next year.

General Mills’ is only the latest company to announce their hike in prices, joining other consumer packaging goods companies like Kraft Heinz, Mondelez, Procter & Gamble and others.

Food inflation has also been a large part of why companies need to up their prices.
