Kellogg’s has unveiled its latest addition to the breakfast table: Chocolate Flavour Corn Flakes.

Crispy and golden, the original Kellogg’s Corn Flakes have been delighting families for over 100 years and this latest innovation is poised to tantalise taste buds.

Since launching in 1922, the Corn Flake has stood as Kellogg’s original cereal. With approximately 66 million boxes made each year, it continues to captivate breakfast eaters, solidifying its place as a morning staple.

Given its rich heritage, it’s only fitting that a product of such significance is given a modern-day twist. Kellogg’s has answered the nation’s quest for a delicious new morning choice, with the “irresistible marriage” of rich, velvety cocoa and the signature crunch of Kellogg’s classic Corn Flakes.

High in fibre and vitamin D, the base of the Corn Flake is the same heritage product the nation loves. The traditional flakes are tumbled and coated with cocoa to create the unique crunchy texture with a new chocolatey twist.

“It’s great to be bringing Chocolate Flavour Corn Flakes to breakfast tables,” says Ann Rose Eng, brand activation manager at Kellogg’s Ireland. “From a tasty morning option to an enjoyable snack, they can be eaten alone for an extra crunch or with milk, where the coating washes off to make the milk delectably chocolatey, whilst the Corn Flakes stay crispy. They’re sure to be loved by the whole family.”

Corn Flakes lovers will be able to get their hands on the new Kellogg’s Corn Flakes Chocolate Flavour in Tesco stores nationwide from this Wednesday, 24 January, with an RRP of €4.49.
