Kellogg's toasts a Century of Corn Flakes
(NC) - Roosters have been greeting the new day for ages, and Kellogg's Corn Flakes have been greeting people at breakfast since the turn of the century. This year, the company and the breakfast classic that started it all turn 100 years old.
Kellogg's Corn Flakes' roots can be traced back to a tasty experiment at the Battle Creek Sanatorium. While experimenting with grains to find nutritious breakfast alternatives, W. K. Kellogg and his brother left cooked wheat exposed to air overnight resulting in thin, light and crispy flakes when flattened and baked. The rest, as they say, is history.
By 1909, more than a million cases were sold. W.K. Kellogg placed his signature on every box to proudly tell his customers that they were buying the original and the very best quality.
Today, Kellogg's Corn Flakes is perhaps the most well-known cereal with 128 billion bowls eaten each year in over 180 nations worldwide. Corn Flakes cereal was even eaten onboard Apollo 11 during the first moon landing mission.
Cornelius Rooster, the happy-go-lucky, confident mascot of Corn Flakes, first made his debut on the front of the cereal's packaging in 1957. The rooster's trademark green, red and yellow has become a famous icon for generations of Corn Flakes fans.
