“What do snowmen eat for breakfast?"/"Frosted Flakes.”

A popular winter joke for children is:

Q: What do snowmen eat for breakfast? / Q: What is Frosty the Snowman’s favorite cereal?
A> Frosted Flakes.


The joke has been cited in print since at least 1998.


Wikipedia: Frosted Flakes
Kellogg’s Frosted Flakes or Frosties is a breakfast cereal, produced by the Kellogg Company and consisting of sugar-coated corn flakes. It was introduced in the United States in 1951, as Sugar Frosted Flakes. The word “sugar” was dropped from the name in 1983.

Generic versions, such as store brands, are also available. Unlike many cereals (Cheerios and Rice Krispies, for example), Frosted Flakes shares its name with generic competitors.
