Interesting about Kelloggs Corn Flakes...
 

On February 26, 1852, John Harvey Kellogg was born. He is best known today for the invention of the breakfast cereal corn flakes. Here are 5 things you didn’t know about the surprising history of corn flakes...

Corn Flakes Were Invented by AccidentAs superintendent at the Battle Creek Sanitarium in Michigan in 1894, Dr. John Kellogg and his brother Will were searching for healthy vegetarian dishes to feed the patients. They put boiled wheat that had been left out and had dried up through rollers, hoping to make dough out of it, but getting flakes instead. After toasting them, they were a hit with patients, so they tried their idea using corn, and corn flakes were born.
 
Corn Flakes Was The First Box of Cereal To Contain PrizesIf you’ve ever bought a cereal box with a prize inside, you can thank Kelloggs. Kellogg’s Corn Flakes manufactured between 1909 and 1931 came with a prize inside the cereal box, and Kellogg’s was the first company to do this.  The first prize was a booklet for children called Kellogg’s Funny Jungleland and contained pictures of animals dressed in colorful clothing.  It was a clever marketing tactic that also entertained children at the same time.
 
The Cereal Mascot Isn’t a Rooster for the Reason You ThinkYes, roosters are known to crow when the sun comes up, and many people eat cereal for breakfast. However, that is not why this bird decorates the box of Kellogg’s Corn Flakes. Nansi Richards was a Welsh harpist who happened to be a friend of Kellogg’s. She pointed out that the word rooster in Welsh is "ceiliog," which sounds a lot like Kellogg. This mascot, named Cornelius Rooster ("Corny" for short) was a hit with consumers, eventually becoming an iconic branding touch.
 
Corn Flakes Have Been to the MoonAs one of the foods taken along for the first moon landing, Kellogg’s Corn Flakes was compressed so it would fit into an airtight pouch and milk powder made from freeze-dried milk was added. That was so the astronauts could add water to rehydrate it and enjoy their morning corn flakes. The breakfast cereal was encased in a laminated coating to prevent spoilage.
 
Kellogg and His Brother Had a Falling Out Over SugarDr. John Kellogg wanted a food that would be healthy for his patients of the Battle Creek Sanitarium in Michigan where he was superintendent. The breakfast cereal proved popular among the patients, but his brother Will Kellogg wanted to add sugar to increase the popularity, which John was strictly against.
Eleven years after its invention, Will started his own company to produce the corn flakes with sugar, infuriating John and leading to a lifelong rift.

National Kahlúa Day on February 27th recognizes the rich, cream coffee liqueur that also serves up a great many delicious desserts! This alcoholic beverage adds to cocktails and adult flavored desserts equally well. To celebrate, you may want to use Kahlua, a coffee-flavored rum-based liquor, to flavor your ice cream or another dessert such as cheesecake or cake.  It also tastes great in coffee, hot chocolate, creamy cocktails, as a shot or on the rocks.
Pedro Domecq began producing Kahlúa in 1936. In 1994, the company merged with Allied Lyons forming Allied Domecq. In 2005, Allied Domecq was partially acquired by Pernod Ricard which merged with the Swedish Vin & Sprit (V & S Group) in March of 2008.
Kahlúa is made from coffee and rum, so it does contain caffeine.  Kahlúa is found to be used in a few notable cocktails, including the following:
  •  B-52
  •  Baby Guinness
  •  Black Russian
  •  Mudslide
  •  White Russian
  •  Espresso Martini
  •  Caribbean Mudslide
