Today is National Cereal Day Wed, 03/7/12 11:48 AM (permalink)
Today is National Cereal Day. That's because on this date in 1897, Dr. John Kellogg began serving corn flakes to the patients in a mental hospital. His brother William K. Kellogg, who started the cereal company that bears his name, improved on the flakes by adding sugar to them to make them taste better. The two Kellogg guys had some nutty ideas about health, but they did introduce a great new way to incorporate more grains into the modern diet.

Can you imagine how many MILLIONS of tons of corn flakes have been eaten in the over 100 years of existance?
Some of them even eaten by sane people!
What's your favorite cereal, either hot and cold?
Are you a "Slurper", drinking the mlk out of the bowl?
