NATIONAL CEREAL DAY
A bit of a "bland" National Day today. I could have chosen Crown Roast of Pork Day, but have never eaten it and not sure how popular it might be on our forum. So, I went with cereal since most folks likely have some experience with it.
NATIONAL CEREAL DAY
March 7th urges us to get our bowl spoon ready for National Cereal Day each year! Since the end of the 19th century, cereal has become America’s most popular breakfast food.
Now, not only is cereal eaten for breakfast, but it has become a popular bedtime snack. Some people even enjoy a bowl for an evening meal. Bakers turn to cereal in their cake, cookie, and bar recipes. The most popular one is Rice Crispy Bar Treats.
A Little Cereal History:
Ferdinand Schumacher, a German immigrant, began the cereal revolution in 1854 with a hand oats grinder in the back room of a small store in Akron, Ohio. His German Mills American Oatmeal Company was the nation’s first commercial oatmeal manufacturer. In 1877, Schumacher adopted the Quaker symbol, the first registered trademark for a breakfast cereal.
Granula, the first breakfast cereal, was invented in the United States in 1863 by James Caleb Jackson, operator of Our Home on the Hillside, which was later replaced by the Jackson Sanatorium in Dansville, New York. The cereal never became popular since it was inconvenient as the heavy bran nuggets needed soaking overnight before they were tender enough to eat.
Do you remember mornings eating a bowl of cereal, reading the back of the box and trying to find the toy inside the box?
The cereal industry rose from a combination of sincere religious beliefs and commercial interest in healthy foods. Dr. John Harvey Kellogg experimented with granola. He boiled some wheat, rolled it into thin films, and baked the resulting flakes in the oven; he acquired a patent in 1891. In 1895 he launched Cornflakes, which overnight captured a national market.
In 1906, Dr. John Harvey Kellogg’s brother, William K. Kellogg, after working for John, broke away, bought the corn flakes rights from his brother, and set up the Battle Creek Toasted Corn Flake Company. His signature on every package became the company trademark and insurance of quality.
Charles W. Post introduced Grape-nuts in 1898 and soon followed with Post Toasties.
Because of Kellogg and Post, the city of Battle Creek, Michigan is nicknamed the “Cereal Capital of the World.”

You had me at Boo Berry.
As I've gotten older, the sugary cereals really slow me down.
Honey Nut Cheerios or Publix equivalent
Raisin Bran (lots of raisins).
Good ol' Frosted Flakes is hard to beat too! They're greattt!! (Shoulda sent my demo tape in to replace Thurl Ravenscroft...man, what a voice he had, God rest his soul.)
Yea true. I can’t really eat them any more. Every now and then I’ll have one and then wonder why after.
My favorite growing up was honey nut clusters. Somewhere along the way the recipe was changed and a great cereal was ruined.
I guess honey bunches of oats is now my go to.
He sure was a "mean one, Mr. Grinch!!"
And again, I am glad @donniem is back with the "National Days"! Great way to kick start a morning!
My go to 3-4 times a week. Regular oatmeal, 5 minute kind, 1/2 teaspoon sugar, a tablespoon peanut butter, 1 whole sliced banana. Was my mother's go to, she lived to be 98.
My grandfather basically lived on a mixture of rice krispies, peanut butter, and honey for 25 years.
I most often eat oat bran with some fruit in it for breakfast, along with whole wheat toast if I am especially hungry.
Cinnamon Toast Crunch
Cocoa Puffs / Cocoa Pebbles
Rice Krispy Treats cereal
No love for Frosted Flakes?
Frosted Flakes is one step above Cheerios and Special K. The absolute worst is Frosted Mini Wheats. I could be starving in a trench in Ukraine and would refuse to eat that trash.
Oatmeal with cinnamon, blueberries and honey...it's good and good for you! At least that is what I tell myself.
Man, did I love Cookie Crisp when I was a kid!
Do they still make it? I can't eat it every day because of the sugar, but what a treat!
I'm not a major chef (I leave that to my wife), but I love to fix steel cut oats and fixt them like you suggested.
Mm mm, good!!
They still make it. It’s not as good as I remembered it that’s for sure.
