Our Review Factors
What are we looking for? We are looking for the tastiest and crunchiest corn flakes that are perfect for your breakfast needs.
When we talk about cornflakes, they do not hold any flavor of their own. These are sweet in taste and take the taste of the liquid they are soaked in. Hence we examined the taste of these corn flakes both with and without milk.
The crispness and the crunchiness of corn flakes enhances the overall taste and speaks a lot about the freshness. We gauged the crunch at two stages – the dry stage and after immersing them in milk.
We are looking for a crisp bite and bold crunch. Which brand scored the best here?

Corn Flakes Brands – Detailed Review
How We Picked Brands + How We tested
For many, cornflakes and milk is a go-to breakfast option on rushed workday mornings. Often, people like to add fresh berries, pieces of apples and even dried fruits and nuts to make the bowl tastier and healthier. Some add sugar/honey too. We decided to taste all brands devoid of any added ingredients as we wanted to check what the individual taste of each of them felt like. We also decided to check each without adding sugar, honey or any artificial sweeteners.
Every session of the tasting was done side by side, using full-cream, organic milk.
All of the brands that we picked for our taste test are popular and known for their range of products. The price range and availability of the product have also played a major role in our process of choosing brands, for these products belong somewhat in the same price range and are easily available at both online and offline stores. Brands such as Kellogg’s and Bagrry’s are well known in the cereal market, thus it made complete sense for them to be on the list. And as for Patanjali and Mohun’s, though not as popular across the world as those two, are still known for their quality food products.
This is a review that only looked at classic cornflakes variants without berries, nuts, or special variants with bran or mixed with muesli.
This segment was divided into two parts. The first one was the dry tasting of the product as we wanted to gauge the original taste of the cornflakes without any milk. In the second part, we added milk to each brand of the cornflakes.
Further, we tasted each of the four bowls that contained different brands of flakes and carefully noted the change in the flavor. This was done without the addition of any extra sweeteners or fruits/berries/nuts.

Bagrry’s, as compared to Kellogg’s, has a wheaty and mildly saltier taste, and as for Kellogg’s, its nutty taste blended perfectly with that of the milk. Both the brands retained similar levels of crunch upon soaking in milk.
