SLIDE OF THE WEEK

Tony the Tiger

A flat board cut and painted in the likeness of the world’s most famous striped advertising mascot and his offspring, Tony Jr., provide a picture perfect backdrop for tourists visiting Kellogg’s World headquarters.

The contented posers wear their promotional paper headpiece hand-outs with ease of comfort like a king or queen wears a crown.

Kellogg’s legendary Corn Flakes is the morning milk mate that started Americans on a glutenous breakfast cereal eating binge in 1898.

In 1953, someone in the Kellogg’s test kitchen apparently didn’t think American’s blood glucose count was high enough. So they came up with the brighter than bright idea to take the granddaddy of all boxed breakfast cereals and make it sweeter than sweet by dousing each little corn flake with a dose of high fructose corn syrup. Frosted Flakes were born.

Ever since that fateful day human taste buds have been sending enthusiastic signals to the brain saying what Tony’s been saying since the beginning:  “They’re Grrrrreat!”  Even when they are milk-logged, they’re still Grrrreat!

Here’s Tony, his Frosted Flakes and YOU!

SLIDE OF THE WEEK

Reading Life Magazine

Solid honey-blond wood chairs, a matching lampshade and tropical print sofa easily stand out from the deep forest green walls and white trim of this deluxe vacation cabin somewhere in the wilds of Michigan. The door is cracked open. Sitting on the arm of a green leather arm chair, a young lady with a long leg fusses with the clasp of a necklace.

SLIDE OF THE WEEK

Bob's Big Boy

Who can ever forget the Bob's Big Boy Combo? That signature mushy double burger littered with wilted shredded lettuce, dressed with their own hamburger relish and gobs of mayonnaise served with a bonus bun in the middle. Not only was it difficult to swallow, but it was the inspiration for the Big Mac.
