Today is National Cereal Day.
Cereal has been known as the most popular breakfast food in America.
For many, the day starts out with a bowl of cereal.
It’s a meal that adults and children alike can enjoy and have done so for centuries.
Whether you’re a milk slurper or spoon user, cereal has become a comfort food enjoyed morning, noon or night.
So, as you dig into your bowl of corn flakes, Cheerios or Cap’N Crunch, here are a few fun facts:
Corn flakes were accidentally invented when the Kellogg brothers messed up a batch of Granola.
Kellogg’s was started in 1906 as the Battle Creek Toasted Corn Flake Company after two brothers, Dr. John Harvey Kellogg and Will Keith Kellogg, botched a batch of granola and accidentally invented flaked cereal at the Battle Creek Sanitarium in 1898.
