BEST BREAKFAST CEREALS OF ALL TIME
To say cereal is popular in the United States would be a massive understatement. The average person consumes approximately 170 bowls of cereal each year.
The breakfast cereal business is worth approximately $35 billion. By 2025, it’s expected to be worth anywhere up to $54 billion. It’s interesting to know the most popular cereals today have been around for decades.

Oven-toasted and frosted to perfection, these Tony the Tiger-approved corn flakes are so good, they’re great. Unlike many kinds of cereal, such as Cheerios, Shreddies and Rice Krispies, the name “Frosted Flakes” is so generic that it cannot be trademarked, and so it shares its name with many competitors.
