The History Of The Company: Two brothers, Dr. John Harvey Kellogg and William Keith Kellogg, operated what we would call today a health resort. It was initially started by the Seventh-Day Adventist Church and called the Battle Creek Sanitarium. He began commercial production of this new food by the Battle Creek Toasted Corn Flake Company, today known as the Kellogg® Company. But Kellogg wasn't the only one to see the potential of this healthful product. A former patient of Kellogg's Sanitarium, C.W. Post based his business here too. The two breakfast giants waged a war against one another by attacking the heath benefits of the other's product with several lawsuits that continued for over a generation. Hundreds of others came to Battle Creek to imitate their success. Plants began cropping up all over the area making Battle Creek truly the "Cereal City." People then became interested in the cereal story and in how cereal was made. The industry gave tours of the plants, and every year, thousands of families, tourists and bus loads of school children came from miles away to tour cereal manufacturing facilities. Kellogg's Sanitarium was the subject of the 1994 film "The Road To Wellville". John Lennon wrote the song "Good Morning Good Morning" after seeing a Kellogg's® Corn Flakes commercial on TV. The black and white commercial simply featured Kellogg's® Corn Flakes being tipped into a bowl. The song's chorus and title came from the jingle "Good morning good morning...the best to you each morning... sunshine breakfast...Kellogg's® Corn Flakes crisp and fun". A brief snippet of the song is heard at the beginning of "The Frodis Caper (MIJACOGEO)".

The Commercial Jingle: "Some guys have it, some guys never will"
The History Of The Company: Cosmetics maker since 1770, Yardley Of London® relocated to Basildon (30 miles from London in the county of Essex) in the mid 1960's after more than 60 years at their former home in High Street, Stratford East London. Famous worldwide for their English Lavender perfume range, the company occupied a large site on the Pipps Hill No.2. Industrial Estate at 4 Miles Gray Road, complete with additional warehouse facilities and recreation area. The company employed a large work force with many local in Basildon. Unfortunately Yardley Of London® had financial problems in the late 1990's resulting in the sell of the brand name to the German firm Wella and the complete factory site for re-development as the Yardley Business Park. The production area, canteen, club and office block were alldemolished as part of this redeveolpment, although the main storage warehouse was retained and refurbished during 2001/2002.

The History Of The Product: Kool-Aid® was invented around 1927 by Edwin Perkins and his wife Kitty in Hastings, Nebraska. The couple was running a mail order business called Perkins Products Company, which sold over 125 products nationally. One of the couple's best sellers was a drink syrup called Fruit Smack. In an effort to cut shipping costs, Perkins got rid of the 4 oz. glass bottles that Fruit Smack syrup was sold in and instead packaged it as a concentrated powder in an envelope. In 1954, General Foods advertising agency developed the now-famous Kool-Aid® pitcher. Marvin Potts, an art director at Foote, Cone & Belding, hit upon the idea after watching his young son scrawling on a frosty windowpane. There have been over 100 flavor varieties of Kool-Aid®.

"Glow-In-The-Dark Slingers"Ad for Glow-In-The-Dark Slingers

The History Of The Company: It started with the dream of breaking one of the biggest no-no’s in the world: No playing ball in the house. Inventor Reynolds Guyer had a means to attain that dream with polyurethane. From that synthetic foam came the first Nerf® Ball and from that first Nerf® Ball came a line of bows, footballs, bats and more that continues to expand today. Guyer’s first Nerf® Ball rolled out to the public in 1969. With the promise that "You can’t damage lamps or break windows and you can’t hurt babies or old people". Nerf® was safe enough for indoor play, but its squishy portability >made it an ideal take-anywhere toy. By the end of its first year on the market, over 4 million Nerf® Balls had been sold. In the wake of man landing on the Moon, Nerf® was nearly dubbed the "Moon Ball" by its inventor. In retrospect, the made-up word "Nerf" was a much better idea. The original ball would likely have been a success either way, but Nerf® had bigger and better things in store than just a single, small "Moon Ball".




Post® Products: Frosted Rice Krinkles, Honeycomb, Raisin Bran and Alpha Bits with the Monkees on the boxes. During the TV show's airing in syndication in the early 1970's, some of the boxes included the enticing offer of a free Monkees record inside. These infamous cereal box records (or cardboards) are fairly desirable items on the collectors market with 12 discs being issued in all. However, the icing on the cake (or sugar on the cereal) came in the form of a special mail-order only album featuring all 12 tracks called The Monkees "Golden Hits" available for just $1.50 and two cereal box-tops.
The Songs On The Disks: Last Train To Clarksville, I Wanna Be Free, Forget That Girl & Valleri on the Alpha Bits boxes, (Theme From) The Monkees, Teardrop City, Papa Gene's Blues & The Day We Fall In Love appearing on the Frosted Rice Krinkles boxes and I'm A Believer, Pleasant Valley Sunday, (I'm Not Your) Steppin' Stone & Mary Mary on both Raisin Bran & Honeycomb
The History Of The Company: C. W. Post was a patient at Kellogg's Sanitarium in Battle Creek, Michigan. He saw first hand the marketing potential of developing his own breakfast cereal. In 1895 in a little white barn in Battle Creek, Michigan, C.W. Post made the first batch of Postum (a coffee substitute comprised mainly of roasted chicory). With that step he entered the brand new retail cereal industry. C. W. Post used marketing techniques that are now considered industry standards but which were innovative for their time. These included extensive advertising, coupons, free samples, product demonstrations, plant tours and recipe booklets. The two breakfast giants William Kellogg and C. W. Post waged war against one another by attacking the heath benefits of the other's product with several lawsuits that continued for over a generation.
