Honey Crunch Corn Flakes
From: Kellogg's
Introduced in 1996

"Taste of honey, Heart of Gold."

The front of the box described it as a "crunchy honey sweetened corn cereal & nuts."

A September 19, 1996 press release announcing Honey Crunch Corn Flakes described it like this:

"The new cereal starts with the simple goodness of an American classic -- Kellogg's Corn Flakes -- and bakes in the taste and texture of honey and bits of almond. To support the launch of its new product, Kellogg's will implement a comprehensive marketing campaign that includes advertising, promotion and public relations support. The national television ad campaign, which consists of both :15 and :30 second spots, will include the tagline "Taste of Honey, Heart of Gold."

A 1997 TV commercial described the cereal like this:

"Introducing the best thing to happen to breakfast in a generation, new Honey Nut Corn Flakes. Sweet honey and nuts baked to an incredible crunch and, under it all, the sweet goodness of Kellogg's Corn Flakes."

Company Description: Kellogg's was originally founded as the Battle Creek Toasted Corn Flake Company in 1906. The company's founder Will Keith Kellogg is credited with inventing corn flakes along with his brother John Harvey Kellogg. The company was renamed the Kellogg Company in 1922...

I miss this cereal so much. It is hands down my favorite all time cereal. I don't get why they would discontinue it... well obviously it wasn't profiting the company, so I guess the question is how were people not buying this awesome cereal... best ever. I would buy it online and have it shipped from anywhere.

I can not describe how good this cereal tastes. Almonds, honey and crunchy flakes are delicious together. It's the perfect breakfast cereal. If you could put it on the shelves for a little while each year... that would be great. Thanks!

OMG - I used to love this cereal! Is there any way I can convince Kellogg's to bring it back for me!? I will pay for just a special run of it. Or maybe buy the recipe?

I miss this cereal too. There was also a 1 minute version of the commercial that only aired on cable channels since air space costs less. My daughter was in the commercial (can see her head and her hand holding the box while running through the field). On the full version, she's actually "in" it.
