Cereal Day, March 7th
Today, March 7th is Cereal Day, the food that started in colonial days as a mixture of popcorn, sugar and cream and served for breakfast. Today, nearly 50% of households start their day with a bowl of cereal with the average American eating 160 bowls a year. Cereal is the third most popular item bought at grocery stores behind soda and milk. There are enough boxes of cereal served each year to circle the globe 13 times. The most popular cereals of all time are from 1 to 5: Frosted Flakes, Cap’n Crunch, Cinnamon Toast Crunch, Lucky Charms and Honey Nut Cheerios.
