World's Largest Frosted Flake?

 Hi Erika,
 
  I have attached a picture of the cornflake.  As you can see, it bends over on the side, besides being huge.  It's quite unusual, to say the least.  And yes, that is a quarter next to it!  Thanks so much,


Wow - I wonder if Kellogg's QC department is slipping?!? I just had a whole rash of giant Cornflake spottings, all over the country, in the last month...
If you take pics (best with a ruler or a quarter for scale), please send 'em in so I can post it!  And, good luck as caretaker of a (currently!) World's Largest Thing...

Hi Erika,
 
  Yes, it certainly was a Kellogg's frosted flake!  It was in a box with a prize of an Indiana Jones spoon.   Wow, who would think I would have found the distinction of having such a big Frosted Flake!  :)  Thanks for your reply,

Well, it certainly sounds like it!  Was is a Kellogg's Brand Frosted Flake?  The knock-off brands don't tend to have the same quality control standards as the name-brands, so may make a difference for the records...

Hi,
I came across your website, and thought I would e-mail you.  I found a Frosted flake that is over 3" long, and 1 1/2" wide at its widest point.  Is that one of the biggest you have ever heard of it?  It sure seems like it would be!  Thanks,
 
Bridget

My daughter found one yesterday about the same size as the one in the picture. We took a picture next to a small paperclip.. Sadly, she ate it today.

I found one like 4 years ago, and i still have it, i was pouring my frosted flakes into my bowl and it just fell in. I Have kept it in a plastic baggy to keep it safe, i found it when i was in 5th or 6th grade.
