Frosted Flakes is a breakfast cereal first introduced by the Kellogg Company. It consists of corn flakes "frosted" or coated with sugar. The "Frosted Flakes" name is used by Kellogg's in United States and Canada.

Tony the Tiger has been the mascot of Frosted Flakes since its introduction. Tony is known for uttering the cereal's slogan: "They're Gr-r-reat!". Tony the Tiger was originally voiced by Thurl Ravenscroft, who continued until his death in 2005.

At one time Kellogg's gave tours of its manufacturing plant in Battle Creek. That ended in 1986, "due to OSHA and espionage," according to RoadsideAmerica.com.

The Famous Flakes counter was always busy with visitors getting their picture taken and placed on single-serving souvenir boxes of Frosted Flakes.

Visitors to Cereal City would have seen boxes of Corn Flakes moving along a conveyor belt near the ceiling. After an introductory video (where you're given your paper hat), you would walk past a dozen fake manufacturing stations -- fake machines, pipes, valves.

Monitors show video of the real manufacturing, which takes place somewhere else. At the last station, with the conveyor-belt Corn Flakes boxes directly overhead, you're encouraged to twist a gumball dispenser handle and receive a Dixie cup full of warmed-up cereal.
