1980 Kelloggs Cornflakes

The accidental legacy of corn flakes goes back to the late 19th century, when a team of Seventh-day Adventists began to develop new food to adhere to thevegetarian diet recommended by the church. Members of the group experimented with a number of different grains, including wheat, oats, rice, barley, and corn. In 1894, Dr. John Harvey Kellogg, the superintendent of The Battle Creek Sanitarium in Michigan and an Adventist, used these recipes as part of a strict vegetarian regimen for his patients, which also included no alcohol, tobacco, or caffeine. The diet he imposed consisted entirely of bland foods. A follower of Sylvester Graham, the inventor of graham crackers and graham bread, Kellogg believed that spicy or sweet foods would increase passions.

1981 Kelloggs Frosties

Kellogg’s Frosted Flakes (Frosties in Europe) is a breakfast cereal first introduced by the Kellogg Company. It consists of corn flakes “frosted” or coated with sugar. The “Frosted Flakes” name is used by Kellogg’s in United States and Canada. The cereal was first introduced in 1951 as Sugar Frosted Flakes. The word “sugar” was dropped from the product in the 1980s during a time when many cereals dropped “sugar” from their titles.

“Frosted Flakes”, by itself, is purely a description of the product. As a result, that term cannot be trademarked and can be used by any company making a similar product; thus, on boxes, the words “of corn” are added below the Frosted Flakes logo. By contrast, “Kellogg’s Frosted Flakes” and “Frosties” are registered trademarks in their respective markets.

1976 Kelloggs Rice Crispies

Rice Krispies (known as Rice Bubbles in Australia and New Zealand) is a breakfast cereal that was created by Clayton Rindlisbacher for the Kellogg company, and later marketed by Kellogg’s in 1927 and released to the public in 1928. Rice Krispies are made of crisped rice (rice and sugar paste that is formed into rice shapes or “berries”, cooked, dried and toasted), and expand forming very thin and hollowed out walls that are crunchy and crisp. When the cereal is subjected to a change in heat, the walls tend to collapse, creating the famous “Snap, crackle and pop” sounds.

Rice Krispies cereal is widely known and popular with a long advertising history, with the elven cartoon characters Snap, Crackle, and Pop touting thebrand. In 1963, The Rolling Stones recorded a short song for a Rice Krispies television advertisement. Rice Krispies are also an important ingredient in Rice Krispies treats made by combining the cereal with melted marshmallows.
