IHOP’s New French Toast Is Double Dipped In Oatmeal And Corn Flakes

IHOP-DD-French-Toast

Breakfast fans will be pleased to hear that IHOP is creating a hybrid of three iconic breakfast dishes. The new Double-Dipped French Toast features oatmeal, cornflakes and (you guessed it) french toast.

IHOP’s new menu item is made with brioche dipped in a vanilla batter and dipped a second time in corn flakes and oatmeal. The french toast is then fried on the griddle. Patrons can choose between a Lemon Strawberry (lemonade cream and glazed strawberries) and a Cinnamon Sugar (cinnamon sugar springs and whipped cream) topping for their dish.

The Double-Dipped French Toast will be available through Sept. 20 at all participating IHOP locations. It can be purchased in stacks of two for a combo or a full stack of three.

Iconic Musicians Recreated Using Corn Flakes

cereal artists

Some might already argue that Drake is as soft as Corn Flakes, but now there’s an elegant visual of him in Corn Flake form, as well as of other music artists.

Artist Sarah Rosado masterfully took bits of cornflakes and recreated the profiles of iconic musicians of the past and present. From Michael Jackson, Elvis and John Lennon to current stars such as Drake, Beyonce and Lady Gaga, they are all carefully crafted to make you feel something beyond appreciation.

The detail put into these portraits is crazy, as Rosado crafts every eyebrow and hairstyle to a “t” and captures the essence of each musician’s noteworthy characteristics.

Check them out yourself, and you’re likely to start humming their songs as you scroll down:

This Guy Spent £36,000 Traveling the World in Search of the Perfect Bowl of Cornflakes

Corn Flakes

There’s nothing quite like starting your day off right with a tasty bowl of cereal, and no one believes in the power of oats more than Mick Hobday of Hampshire, England.

Basically, Mick is on a serious search for the perfect bowl of Corn Flakes. And by that we mean his love for the cereal runs really, really deep. He’s spent the last 11 years and around £36,000 traveling across the globe to taste Corn Flakes in 60 different countries, and so far, all 4,000 bowls of cereal have fallen short of his ideal breakfast niblet.

How will Mick know he’s stricken upon a Corn Flake jackpot? He describes the perfect cereal bit as “dark, crunchy, organic and locally grown.”  So until Mick meets his cereal match, he’ll keep on traveling, eating and crunchin’ on corn. Rough life, eh?

Kellogg's Testing Shorter Fatter Cereal Box

Kellogg’s is testing new shorter, fatter cereal boxes in the Detroit area over a period of 6 months. The packaging contains the same amount of food, just a hopefully more convenient design for both store-shelf storage and home storage. The new package also uses 8% less materials. (Thx SeriousEats)
