? Just hold on, you’ll learn these things and more when visiting Kellogg’s Cereal City USA

, the perfect place for anyone who has ever heard of cereal!”

    Well, obviously Tim Walberg (R-7)has not been bringing home the “bacon”, I mean “cereal” to Battle Creek from Congress!

  9. Fun facts:

    ”In 1894, Dr. John Harvey Kellogg, the superintendent of The Battle Creek Sanitarium in Battle Creek, Michigan and an Adventist, used these recipes as part of a strict vegetarian regimen for his patients, which also included no alcohol, tobacco, or caffeine.

    The diet he imposed consisted entirely of bland foods, since he believed in sexual abstinence and following the precepts of Sylvester Graham, the inventor of graham crackers and graham bread and felt that spicy or sweet foods would increase passions, while cornflakes would have an anaphrodisiac property.’
