Corn Flakes is
the original and best toasted flakes of corn. Made with no artificial flavours or colours. Fat free and less than a teaspoon of sugar in each serving.
John Harvey Kellogg, a surgeon, vegetarian and health food pioneer, while superintendent at the Battle Creek Sanitarium, he developed the first breakfast cereals for his patients, flaked wheat and toasted corn flakes. In 1884 he applied for a patent for 'flaked cereal' (corn flakes). His brother, William K. Kellogg founded the Battle Creek Toasted Corn Flake Co. to produce cornflakes for sale to the public. It wasn't until 1906 that Kellogg's ® Corn Flakes were made available to the general public.
In 1958 the green rooster named Cornelius made his debut on the Corn Flakes box. He has pretty much been a fixture ever since. (Occasionally he shares his space with other people and celebrities.)
