What happened to my large, cruchy golden cornflakes?
I was brought up on Kalloggs Cornflakes, I would eat them morning and night.
My latest box revealed a different product inside. Instead of large, golden and crispy flakes there were small, pale yellow and thin flakes.
Adding milk to them in a bowl revealed the change. Soggy and tastless.
I wont be tempted to eat anymore after enjoying them for over 60 years.

Kellogg's Corn Flakes No Longer Exist!
I grew up eating Kellogg's Corn Flakes and loved them. But a recent purchase was a disaster. The original look and taste are gone! The flakes are smaller, much thinner and have no taste. Who is the brain-child of changing the formula? The first thought I had was to feel sorry for the name Kellogg on such a disappointing product. Why the change? - I called the company to express my disappointment, was told maybe it was an end-line product and I said I really wanted to know; I got a $5 coupon instead of an answer. I said I didn't want the coupon ...because I would never purchase them again. Was told I could use it on another product, but haven't used it; if the corn flakes aren't any good, what else isn't any good. Too bad, a great product has been taken off the shelves and replaced with something inedible. gs

Kellogg’s cornflakes have been my favorite breakfast, snack and dinner since I remember, “this is serious for me” :( WHY mess with perfection?, I usually buy a brunch at once because I can never can run out of it “I know” sounds crazy but I really love it. PLEASE!!!!!! go back to the previous formula you can’t disappoint faithful consumers like that, PLEASE! I’m begging you.
Kellogs have changed the taste recently believed probably due to removal of some salt content and now its like eating tasteless cardboard. Might as well go to other less well known brands at half the price which taste the same or at times even better. Very disappointing.

Please bring back the old recipe
I used to enjoy cornflakes as a kid. I had not eaten them in years until now, and I just realized that their recipe had changed. They don't absorb milk the way they used to, and they're a lot crunchier -which is good for making marshmallow snacks, but not good for everyday breakfast. These cornflakes are also heavier. The old ones were much lighter and thinner and flakey, which made them much nicer. This is still a really good cereal, but I believe it used to be so much better, and could be again. Thank you for your consideration and reading. Blessed be.

Not the golden oldie anymore!
Nothing like the cornflakes I grew up with. This box the last I’ll buy - they seem to be getting ‘cheaper’ each year. No crunch and they get soggy so quickly. Thin, smaller and pale. Just terrible. Sad to see them deteriorate so much in the quality. The Aldi ones are crunchier, taste better and have less sugar - and not as expensive. If I can’t have the golden oldies I’ll have Aldi cornflakes instead.
I love it! Nights when I am hungry I will have a bowl of the Kelloggs instead of ice cream or sweets. I get my fiber and sweet taste without putting on so many calories.Crunchy and delicious especially the taste brings childhood memories. It is best with cold milk but I sometimes add a little bit of sweetened condensed milk to give it that creamy sweetness. I love its texture and great for breakfasts. Just don't dip it to long in milk as it becomes soggy after a while if you want to keep it crunchy like my taste.
Corn Flakes Have Always and Will Always Taste Like Crap
This is objectively the worst cereal. It's only tolerable if you add sugar on them but in that case, I'd rather just east Frosted Flakes. I'm glad that John Harvey Kellogg is dead because he ruined breakfast time for children on a global scale. Those in Africa would rather continue munching on dirt than this crap.

Awful, thought it was just me.
I've bought Cornflakes on and off over the years, sometimes just cheap homebrand ones and thought that this time I would treat myself and get some decent ones, boy was I wrong. I would have been better off buying the cheap crap. What's happened? Nearly broke my teeth and bits of corn kernels got stuck in my teeth and throat. I thought it was just me, but with all of the other people saying pretty much the same thing, I'm definitely not on my own.
