An entry perforation at the top allows consumers to remove one can at a time without destroying the packaging. (Package design: MalowanyPerlmutter Creative,; Paperboard: All Packaging Company,
Package Promises Slimmer Waistline. Multi-Grain Cheerios are a low-calorie extension of General Mills’ well-known cereal brand. Packaging for the line extension uses a shaped carton to clearly communicate the benefits of the dietary product: a slimmer silhouette.
