Cheerios turn 70; Iconic cereal endures, sells

BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) - Here's a little quiz for the breakfast table:
What is the most popular cereal brand in American grocery stores?
Hint: It's been General Mills' top name since 1951, 10 years after it was introduced.
Need another hint? OK, if you're a parent, you've vacuumed it from between the seats of the minivan and from under the highchair by the pound.
The answer, of course, is Cheerios.
The iconic cereal is 70 years old this year and they're celebrating in Buffalo, N.Y., better known for chicken wings.
