The concept of cereal was invented in 1854 by a German immigrant named Ferdinand Schumacher in Akron, Ohio. Using a hand oats grinder, his German Mills American Oatmeal Company was the first commercial oatmeal manufacturer in the United States.
The first breakfast cereal was invented in 1863 by James Caleb Jackson in Dansville, New York. He was the operated of our Home on Hillside, which was replaced later on by the Jackson Sanatorium. This cereal consisted of heavy bran nuggets that had to soak overnight before they were soft enough to eat.
In 1877, Schumaker adopted the Quaker symbol, which was hte first registered trademark for a breakfast cereal.
Dr. John Harvey Kellogg began experimenting with granola, eventually turning into Cornflakes. The patent was acquired in 1891, and in 1895, Cornflakes went on the market.
In 1898, Charles W. Post began marketing and selling Grape-nuts. They were soon followed with Post Toasties.
Almost a decade later in 1906, Dr Kellogg’s brother William K. Kellogg broke away from his brother’s company. He bought the corn flakes rights from his brother and set up the Battle Creek Toasted Corn Flake Company. William Kellogg signed each package as a way of promising its quality.
Kellogg and Post were both located in Battle Creek, Michigan, which is why the city is nicknamed the “Cereal Capital of the World.”
The first sweet cereal was advertised in 1939 and was called “Ranger Joe Popped Wheat Honnie.” In 1964, Lucky Charms hit the shelves.
Since then, cereal has become America’s most popular breakfast food. It is also used as a bedtime snack, dinner, and even dessert (like Rice Crispy Treats).
