Corn flakes are a traditional breakfast cereal that has been around since the beginning of the last century after being accidentally discovered when a group of workers for Dr John Harvey Kellogg took a longer lunch break then needed and in the process when they returned to work instead of their rolled grain coming out in sheets, it turned into a thin flake instead. The flake was then baked and the idea for the corn flake was born.
Crispy and delicious, corn flakes are a great way to get the day started. We recommend topping with fresh fruit and nuts and a splash of your favourite milk, or otherwise enjoy as a healthy snack on their own.
