In the US, we call them Frosted Flakes of corn.

In Europe, they call them Frosties.

Why was this change necessary? Why can't we call them Frosties here?

And most importantly... what do they call them in Canada?

Doesn't it have something to do with trademark of the name. I could've sworn I saw big no frills dog food sacks of Frosted Flakes having nothing to with Kellogg's.

To me it's all about the Sucrilhos.

You can call them Frosties here on the board Frank, how does that sound?And yes, they're great; no matter what you call them. Believe it or not I didn't know they were called Frosted Flakes in the US. Before they were big in Norway I grew up with the british commercials where they call them Frosties, so I always thought that was the original brand name.
