Good thing Tony is out there guarding the secret formula to Frosted Flakes. Wouldn’t want anyone to discover that it’s . . . CORN FLAKES PLUS SUGAR!!!
But that isn’t Tony’s usual shtick. After looking at some old Frosted Flakes commercials, I’ve figured out that Tony is the hero of aspiring athletes. I guess Frosted Flakes is trying to reach that elusive market of kids who want to be sports stars but can’t stand the taste of Wheaties. Here are some videos of Tony helping kids become All-Stars by bringing out the tiger in them.
Frosted flakes came out in 1952 back when it was known as Sugar Frosted Flakes. Here are some of the old commercials from back when Tony wasn’t quite as top-heavy as he is today.
But apparently Tony has decided to stop helping kids in recent years and start helping himself. Why give some poor child who sucks at baseball those magical Frosted Flakes when you can eat them yourself? I will leave you with some recent Frosted Flakes commercials (where the animation quality has clearly taken a massive leap forward) showing Tony ride the new Supecharged! campaign to sports glory. But don’t worry – Tony isn’t entirely rewarded for hogging the cereal – he always gets his comeuppance at the end.
marshmallows, frosted flaked cereal, chocolate and butter
it really scares me that people react to cereal. i love it that my son can eat frosted flakes and other "normal" cereals that kids love. i dont understand either why some people react and some dont. it has been bothering me all day, really put me in a mood!!
And OMG. Frosted flakes are my total obsession. I love these cookies!
In Canada, Kelloggs was making honey nut Corn Flakes (containing peanuts) at one time.. I assume that is why our Frosted Flakes said 'may contain peanuts'.. but I am not sure if they still make products with peanuts.
Thanks! The frosted flakes add extra crispy goodness. 🙂
