Kellogg’s reimagines sugary breakfast treats with their first ever cereal mashup, combining an even mix of Frosted Flakes and Froot Loops in the same box. Sure, you could do the same yourself right now, but that would be way too much work. It’s too bad they don’t make Cap’N Crunch and Fruity Pebbles.
THE BEST Breakfast
Breakfast in most other countries isn’t as packed with sugar as it is here in the U.S. So how is it that America ended up eating desserts for breakfast, and is it really the most important meal of the day? Journalist Johnny Harris digs into the story and offers his thoughts on our bad morning eating habits.
Etsy store Candlelit Desserts makes candles and soaps that look like a variety of food. Its bestseller is this candle that not only looks but also smells like Froot Loops. The 12oz candle comes in a 6″ bowl and has a spoon embedded in it. Not part of a nutritious breakfast.
When we were kids, our parents told us not to play with our food. But this waffle iron encourages just that behavior, cranking out stackable waffle pieces that interlock like LEGO bricks. It makes 1×1, 1×2, and 1×4 blocks. In addition, they’re offering plates that serve as a base for stacking, with spots for butter and syrup.
Motion designer Matthieu Braccini created a series of 15 wonderfully polished and appetite-stimulating animations to promote the Egg McMuffin for McDonald’s. We still think perfectly round eggs are unnatural, but they seem right at home in this geometrically-pristine universe.
If you’ve ever been to Hong Kong, you’ve probably encountered food vendors selling these deliciously chewy bubble waffles. Now you can make them in your own kitchen with the MasterChef bubble waffle maker. It has a non-stick cooking surface, and makes beautifully-textured waffles in less than 5 minutes.
Kellogg’s Rice Krispies cereal is best known for the “snap, crackle, pop” sounds it makes when swimming in milk. If you love that sound, but like things one louder, then check out this invention by Dominic Wilcox, which amplifies the sound for everyone to enjoy at the breakfast table.
This cup is perfect for enjoying muesli on the go. It keeps milk or yogurt separate from cereal until you’re ready to mix them together. Simply store dry ingredients in the top section, then unscrew and pour them in the bottom when you’r ready to eat. The reusable container is made from eco-friendly bamboo fiber and corn starch.
We love a bowl of sweet and crunchy breakfast cereal as much as the next guy, but as Ordinary Things points out, this high-carb, low-nutritional value day-starter isn’t exactly good for you, despite what the marketing might tell us. The Stuff You Should Know episode on the Kellogg brothers is worth a listen too.
Just how did those crunchy and sweet flakes of cereal made it into your bowl this morning? The UK edition of How It’s Made takes us inside a factory where they take various grains, pressure cook, flatten, toast, and sugar-coat them to make a deliciously carby start to your day.
If you’ve never heard the insane story of the Kellogg brothers, you should listen to Stuff You Should Know’s podcast on the topic. But for a slightly more abridged and inebriated version, Drunk History has you covered, with a little help from Paget Brewster, and Owen and Luke Wilson.
Originally an April Fools Day joke, Razer’s toaster for gamers is actually being produced due to popular demand. It has a matte black body, colorful LED illumination like Razer’s gaming systems and peripherals, and toasts the Razer logo. We doubt the multicolored butter will happen.
For National Cereal Day, Post is making two limited edition day-starters which combine sweet and savory flavors. Choose from Chicken & Waffles or Maple Bacon Donut starting on 3/7/19 at Walmart. We’re not sure they’re part of a nutritious breakfast, but they sound tasty.
Today I Found Out explores one of life’s many imponderables (and a question Jerry Seinfeld asked first) – why is there a cereal called “Grape-Nuts” that contains neither grapes, nor nuts. Simon Whistler goes on to give us a few more facts about Post’s long-running cereal.
After doing her best to make her own Skittles, Bon Appétit’s Claire Saffitz once again is determined to make a gourmet version of a popular food – and nobody better mess with her Lucky Charms! Of course our method for getting those marshmallows is a bit simpler.
If there’s one thing that we love for breakfast, it’s a fat stack of buttermilk pancakes, slathered in butter and warm maple syrup. But if you’re craving that flavor while sitting on the bus, you can’t exactly whip out the griddle. Thankfully, Jelly Belly has us covered anytime.
Burger King is teaming up with Kellogg’s to release a special edition milkshake that tastes like a bowl of delicious, sugary breakfast cereal. Sure, it doesn’t contain any actual fruit, but Toucan Sam would still approve. Follow your nose to your nearest BK Lounge on 4/17/17.
