want to impress people? become a cereal aficionado!

July 7, 2009


here are some fascinating facts about cereal you never even knew you should know….


cereal was invented by colonial housewives who started serving up popcorn with sugar and cream for breakfast. pocahontas puffs anyone?


the average american eats 160 bowls of cereal each year. that is why [me]&goji capsules can hold over 21 ounces! way more than your standard cardboard box. so eat your heart out, cereal lover.


the first ready-made breakfast cereal was invented by james c. jackson way back in 1863. his recipe was a whole grain flour dough base baked into dry leaves, broken into chunks to be baked again, then ground into even smaller chunks.

sound appetizing? honestly, let’s just be thankful for the cereal revolution. at [me] & goji, you can now enjoy and create unique cereal combinations for every palate.


u.s. and israeli researchers recently found strong evidence that humans refined wheat and barley into cereal over 23,000 years ago! this groundbreaking discovery suggests humans were processing grains long before hunter-gather societies even developed agriculture.

wow, cereal was here way before you were ever born. before colonial housewives settled in the americas. before James C. Jackson decided dry leaves were food. looks like the cave men really knew the essentials, earth. wind. fire. cereal.
