We’re finally going to get Cinnamon Frosted Flakes in 2017!
Why am I so excited? Because over the past twelve years Kellogg’s has teased consumers with cereals that have come close to it.
Let’s take a trip back to 2004, when Janet Jackson’s wardrobe malfunctioned during halftime at the Super Bowl, Shrek 2 was the highest grossing film, and Kellogg’s released Tony’s Cinnamon Krunchers. You’d think with Tony the Tiger on the box, a mascot that has represented sugary cereal flakes for DECADES, it would be a cinnamon Frosted Flakes. It was not. Instead it was a “crispy, crunchy, cinnamon rice cereal” similar to Chex.
Now let’s go back to 2010, when jeggings led to nerve damage, Shrek Forever After was the fifth highest grossing film, and Kellogg’s sold a cereal with cinnamon-flavored corn flakes. Oh, but it was not a cinnamon Frosted Flakes. It was Simply Cinnamon Corn Flakes.
But now we will have a new cereal that seems to combine the best parts of the two discontinued cereals. My bowl can’t wait.
