Kellogg's Rice Krispies 

New – Different – Delicious

All the children are excited about this new cereal – Kellogg’s Rice Krispies. So different from anything you have ever known.

Lively little bubbles of toasted wholesome rice, that SNAP, CRACKLE AND POP as they float lightly on milk or cream. Get a packet today, mother, and give the children a real treat. No trouble at all. No cooking.

Serve direct from the packet with cold milk or cream. Sweeten with sugar if desired. At your grocer’s in the red-and-green packet – always oven-fresh – protected by the patented inner WAX-TITE bag. (CAPE TIMES - 1928, August 1)


Post Toasties
You have not tasted Corn Flakes at their best until you have eaten POST TOASTIES – a breakfast cereal with winning flavor. By a special process of cooking, rolling and toasting, the true, rich flavor of ripe Indian corn is brought out. This splendid food comes in sealed packets, air-tight and crisp. Eat with cream or milk. Delicious! Made by Meyer, Bridgens & Co., Ltd.
