Now I’ve heard plenty of stories on how products got created over the years. But Kellogg’s Corn Flakes sanatorium origins are certainly something. They were invented when two doctors tried to reduce the patient’s sex drive.
Take a listen. This radio segment for CBC radio, also talks about the origins of the Popsicle, Viagra and Playdo (But anyone who has watched How Do You Know has heard that story).
From listening to CBC radio today, I also learned that when male fruit flies can't mate they are more likely to eat alcohol soaked food.
