Maybe we'll have to call it Wheaties 2.0.

The Breakfast of Champions is getting a makeover.

General Mills says a new version of Wheaties will be launched in September.

The company says it's testing three versions of the new Wheaties, including one with bran flakes, fruit and crunchy almonds.

But fans of the old Wheaties don't have to start hording their favorite cereal.

General Mills says the original Wheaties will still be sold when the new version is released.
