10 Things You [Probably] Didn’t Know About…Kellogg’s

For as long as we’d like to remember, each morning we’ve been joined around the breakfast table by one special brand….Kellogg’s!

Creators of some of the most iconic cereals and adjoining characters, Kellogg’s have been the boys to beat in the cereal game and are as much a household staple now as they have been for the last 100 years.

Inspired by their greatness and of course our fond memories through the years of some of our favourite bowls of retro deliciousness, we’ve just gotten our hands on some amazing new Kellogg’s merchandise including notebooks, lip balms, keyrings, erasers and much much more!

To help really get into the spirit, we’ve decided to base one of our classic 10 Things You [Probably] Didn’t Know About… blog posts on this food icon. Hopefully you’ll also get to learn some pretty cool facts along the way too. Enjoy!

1- Kellogg’s has been to the moon! Yep the Apollo 11 astronauts brought a Kellogg cereal to the moon, as part of their breakfasts during the mission.

2- Five Kellogg’s cereals are among the top 10 best-selling brands in the United States: Frosted Flakes, Special K, Frosted Mini-Wheats, Froot Loops, and Raisin Bran.

3- Loved getting toys in your cereal as a kid?? Well Kellogg’s were the very first people to do this, starting out by giving away children’s books (The Funny Jungleland Moving Pictures Book) and pin-back buttons.

4- It all started by mistake! Controversial doctor John Harvey Kellogg and his brother Will Keith Kellogg invented corn flakes by accident in 1894. They were trying to make granola.

5- The iconic Kellogg’s logo was first handwritten by founder Will Keith Kellogg and has been with the company ever since.

6- The very first box of Kellogg’s cereal was made of entirely recycled material.  Today, almost all of their cereal boxes are made from recycled paperboard.

7- If laid end to end, the boxes of Kellogg’s cereal eaten since 1906 would reach to the moon and back over 160 times.

8- Know the Times Square adverts in New York? Well…..you guessed it….Kellogg’s was the first company to advertise there.

9- In 2012, Kellogg’s became the world’s second-largest snack food company (after Pepsico) by acquiring the Pringles potato crisps brand from Procter & Gamble for $2.7 billion in a cash deal.

10- Kellogg’s has had a number of themed cereals over the years including; Bart Simpson’s No Problem-O’s, Eat My Shorts and Peanut Butter Chocolate Crunch Cereal, Homer’s Cinnamon Donut Cereal, Buzz Blasts (based on Buzz Lightyear), C-3PO’s “a New (crunchy) Force at Breakfast”, Mr. T’s Muscle Crunch, Pokémon Cereal, Woody Woodpecker cereal and so much more. Busy busy!

For us, breakfast is one of the most important meals of the day. Not for the reasons you might think like getting a boost of energy for the day or even getting to wake up nice and gently but just for the fact that we get to dig into some of our all-time favourite cereals!

Perhaps it’s a nostalgia thing, like when we were little nippers heading off to school and getting to have a nice bowl of tastiness in front of the morning’s cartoons. Bliss! Naturally on top of the menu was the delights from Kellogg’s, the true kinds of breakfast with treats like Coco Pops, Rice Krispies and perhaps even Fruit Loops. Generally we had whatever toy looked the best at the time.

Personally, things in the morning didn’t get much better than our trusty Coco Pops! Not only were they amazing to eat, by we had a dessert breakfast in the form of and amazing chocolate milkshake right at the end. Too cool!
