Kellogg’s Corn Flakes add honey to the bowl
BATTLE CREEK, Mich. Kellogg Co. introduced its latest honey-flavored addition to the longtime favorite cereal, Kellogg’s Corn Flakes.
“We added just a touch of natural honey to the cereal you grew up loving,” said LaKesha Hatch, Kellogg’s Corn Flakes brand manager. “Kellogg’s Corn Flakes with a Touch of Honey takes after the classic. It’s still a simple, smart breakfast choice, but with a new flavor dimension. And true to the Corn Flakes brand, it’s a great value at less than 50 cents a serving, including milk.”
Each serving contains 120 calories, 6 g of sugar and 0 g of fat.
Based on the expanding nature of the market for honey-sweetened products among the adult population in the United States, the addition is anticipated to be a success, the company said.
