Corn Flakes (Carnation)
From: Independent / Undefined

According to a 1948 magazine ad:

"Carnation CORN FLAKES At Your Grocers NOW - They're NEW! They're CRISP! They're 'HONEY-TOASTED'! - The best-tasting Corn Flakes you ever ate are now at your favorite grocers!"

Other ads made the claim, "Guaranteed Crisper Where Crispness Counts In Milk Or Cream."

For a time, Woody Woodpecker appeared on boxes of this cereal. Known premiums: trading cards and a send away offer for a 6-Unit Circus Wagon Parade.

I remember the taste of Carnation Corn Flakes. It was like eating sweetcorn on the cob. When I eat Kellogg's... it's just not the same. I sure miss them.

I never knew about Carnation Corn Flakes cereal. I knew about the milk. When did Carnation stop making the cereal? I was born in 1968.

These actually lasted into at least the mid-1960s. They were good corn flakes at a good price. I think these were only sold on the West Coast.

I grew up on Carnation Corn Flakes. It was always in the cupboards, at my request! I remember the beautiful red and white waxy wrapper that covered the cardboard box and at my age was a little hard to open but I was relentless, I wanted my corn flakes, every morning. My two grown daughters and all of my grandchildren know about Carnation Corn Flakes, as I have told them many times, there is nothing to compare!! A part of my childhood that is so special, I will remember it always. Thanks Carnation!!

With the "Carnation" name... just imagine that "Carnation fresh milk" is combined with these corn flakes.

Does anyone remember the playing cards that came in the box?

A very special cereal. I don't remember the taste, I just know they were much more delicious than Kellogg's and those awful Post' Toasties. Love that red and white box.

I remember how really good and delicious Carnation Corn Flakes were. I liked them better than the Kellogg's brand. I sure miss them and I think about that big red box all the time.
