Here is the shocking story behind the creation of Corn Flakes

Corn Flakes is the first choice for many when it comes to breakfast. But there is a shocking story behind the creation of the food item.

As you would know it was created by John Harvey Kellogg back in 1894. However, he didn’t create it as a breakfast cereal.

Instead, he had the perception that food items which are spicy and flavorful would increase sexual desire. To avoid this and restrict people from masturbating, he wanted to come up with something that was bland and ended up creating the corn flakes.

While his actual goal was not met, he did give us something that made us happy in the mornings.
