OFF THE TICKER

Steaming-Hot Celebration

September 16, 1993|Associated Press

GRAND FORKS, N.D. — The makers of Cream of Wheat are celebrating the 100th anniversary of the hot breakfast cereal, with--what else--breakfast.

Nabisco said it will throw a free citywide breakfast on Oct. 6 here, where a century ago a local miller thought part of a wheat kernel would make a tasty breakfast.

A day after the breakfast blowout, the Cream of Wheat plant in Minneapolis, built in 1927, will hold a birthday party for three generations of employees.

An estimated 10,000 bowls of the cereal are expected to be served during the two-day celebration.

About 70 million pounds of the cereal are produced annually in Minneapolis.

Cream of Wheat is a product of Nabisco Foods Group, a unit of RJR Nabisco.
