Not every wonderful invention was created intentionally. Some of the products we cherish most were born because of clumsiness or lazy tendencies. While others were discovered by watching how others interact with things differently than we do. For researchers who spend months, or even years experimenting, this spontaneous discovery can be thrilling. While not every item on this list was immediately adopted by the masses, all of them are now used, or consumed, on a day to day basis.
15. Corn Flakes
In 1894, Dr. John Harvey Kellogg worked as the superintendent of the Battle Creek Sanitarium in Michigan alongside his brother Will Keith Kellogg, who was trying to find wholesome and vegetarian foods to feed the patients. When Will accidentally left boiled wheat sitting out one day, it went stale and flaky. Not wanting to throw it away, he baked it instead, which yielded a satisfying crunch. They were such a hit with the patients that the Kellogg’s brothers began experimenting with other grains, which is how they came upon the corn recipe we know and love today. The Kellogg’s company was created in 1906 to sell the popular breakfast cereal.http://meanttothrive.com/how-eating-frosted-flakes-reeses-puffs-shaped-me-plus-understanding-gaps-brain-gut-connection/ Source: Meanttothrive.com
