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.
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.

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.
The Vermont-based ice cream purveyors latest treats feature the delicious sugary flavors left behind in cereal milk after eating various breakfast cereals. Choose from Cocoa Loco, Frozen Flakes, or Fruit Loot. Available exclusively at Ben & Jerry’s Scoop Shops.
Breakfast meets sugary soda pop with Kellogg’s latest toaster pastries. These frosted A&W root beer and Orange Crush flavored Pop-Tarts are expected in grocery stores later this month. As yummy as these sound, we’re still waiting for Han Solo in carbonite flavored ones.
