The history of cereal is as fascinating as it is flavorful. The cereal as we know it today incited a bit of a Breakfast Revolution during its inception in the late 19th century due to its quick, ready-to-eat convenience. Before its arrival, the good folks of America were sneaking heavy, meaty breakfasts. The appearance of cereal shifted gears towards a lighter, brighter morning routine and hasn't looked back since!
Over the years, cereal has expanded its empire into our hearts (and stomachs) by evolving into an immense array of types, flavors, and even characters. National Cereal Day is a tribute to this endearing evolution, prompting us to appreciate our bowls of miniature treasure troves of morning crunch.
Let's not forget those magical Saturday mornings, sitting in our pajamas, eyes glued to the television, a bowl of cereal in hand - this day brings back a lot of those cherished moments. So, whether you're a fan of serious Shreddies or a patron of peppy Pop-Tarts, this day belongs to you and your beloved bowl of cereal.
In 1863, a man named James Caleb Jackson introduced the world to the concept of a breakfast cereal. He created granula, which was made from crumbled graham flour and required soaking overnight. However, it was not widely popular due to the long preparation time.
In 1877, Dr. John Harvey Kellogg, a surgeon and health enthusiast, accidentally created wheat flakes when a batch of cooked wheat was left out overnight and became stale. He decided to roll the wheat into thin flakes and toast them, resulting in a more convenient and appealing breakfast option.
In 1894, Dr. John Harvey Kellogg and his brother Will Keith Kellogg founded the Battle Creek Toasted Corn Flake Company. Their corn flakes, made from toasted cornmeal, became an instant hit. They revolutionized the breakfast industry by introducing the first ready-to-eat cereal that didn't require soaking or extensive preparation.
In 1902, the Kellogg brothers officially renamed their company to Kellogg Company. They continued to innovate and expand their cereal offerings, introducing Rice Krispies in 1927 and Kellogg's Corn Pops in 1950. The Kellogg's cereal empire grew rapidly, making breakfast cereals a staple in households worldwide.
In the 1970s, cereal manufacturers began diversifying their product lines, introducing a wide variety of flavors and blends. This diversification aimed to cater to different tastes and preferences, making breakfast cereals even more popular and appealing to a broader audience.
