From the Email Inbox: Largest Cornflake

Subject: Largest Cornflake

What is the largest Kellog's Cornflake?
I just found one that measures 63 mm x 40 mm....the biggest I've ever encountered.
Is this a record?
Please advise....thanks,

Thanks for your inquiry -
I have not yet been able to locate an official record, but have had previous inquiries with measurements:
"Just wondering, how big was the cornflake before it arrived in pieces? I've got one that's pretty large (7cm tall by a bit more than 5cm wide)"
"I believe mine was just under that in length, and only about 3 cm wide although that part was folded over."
Was it from an actual Kellogg's Corn Flake box? Imitation corn flakes don't have quite the quality control, so generic brands tend to yeild more Large Flakes than the name brand... I would suggest keeping the box it came from, also, for provenance.  We have not yet heard back from the above inquiry as to brand, but will keep you posted if more infromation comes about.
Conversion-wise, your measurements are 2.59 inches by 2.57 inches - very impressive. 
Thanks for writing in, and color me jealous...
