Here’s an interesting tidbit of history from June 19, 1941. The round shape was created on this day in 1941.
A little history
- Original Cheerios® was invented in 1941 by food science innovator Lester Borchardt.
- Originally named “Cheerioats,” healthy, wholesome oats have always played an important role as the cereal’s main ingredient.
- Borchardt spent months experimenting with new ways to “puff” oats into the now familiar shape people and families have loved for generations. Not only did he invent the original Cheerios®, Borchardt went on to be a leader in finding practical and affordable ways to feed the world.
I love cheerios and make all sorts of different recipe treats with them. But that’s for another post!!
