Mexican Corn Flakes Edición Limitada (Kellogg's)
This is a bit of a weird one. Corn Flakes imported from Mexico? Yep, they sold it. So what’s the difference from the Corn Flakes they produce and sell in America? Well, nothing, really…
Texture-wise, the flakes are thin and very crispy—and stay that way long after milk has been poured in the bowl.
Flavor-wise, this is the ultimate, original mild cereal. It is very, very lightly sweetened, but the main flavor is unmistakably corn, which is a good thing since this is an actual corn cereal and not just a cereal loaded with corn syrup. (In fact, what sweetness is in there comes from actual sugar, according to the ingredients.)
Visually, it’s okay. It’s a classic look. A bowl full of irregular, yellow flakes. I had a slice of toast with the bowl, and they matched almost identically.
The packaging is unusual. There’s nothing special about the design or anything, but the box itself is tiny—maybe half the size of a modest box of cereal, at most, and not to scale; it’s taller and skinnier. And, as you may have guessed, written in Spanish.
Overall, I’m not sure why this exists outside of Mexico. It wasn’t bad, but it wasn’t like Mexican Coke where you can actually taste the difference. Still, if you like corn flakes (of course, we all do!), Kellogg’s Mexican Corn Flakes will fit the bill—¡por un tiempo limitado!
