A history teacher who unknowingly bought the very last box of Canadian-made Frosted Flakes cereal is still deciding what he will do with the signed package.
While Stephane Gaudette of Timmins, Ont. tells CTV News it's too early to tell what the final fate of the now-famous cereal bag will be, a curator at the Museum London has requested he donate it to them. In fact, the London, Ont. museum is also appealing to former employees of the Kellogg's factory, which shut down December 2014, to donate any artifacts they may have.
The museum's curator Amber Lloydlangston says she's hoping for anything from old uniforms to lunch boxes.
For now, the bag of cereal, which reads “This is the very last bag of Canadian cereal for the Canadian market from the Kellogg’s London Ontario plant," and is signed by three former factory employees, is being used as a history lesson for Gaudette's students.
According to the London Free Press, he brought it to class this week and isn't ready to part ways with it just yet. Whatever he decides, Gaudette says he won't be selling the bag or eating the cereal.
“I’d be Public Enemy No. 1 in London,” said Gaudette, calling the idea of selling the historic item "crass."
London residents would agree: the last cereal box from a factory that provided jobs for thousands over the span of 107 years is essential to their history. This is especially true for former factory employee Mike Cascadden, who signed the last cereal bag with his coworkers, reports the Free Press.
Several generations of Cascadden's family worked at the Kellogg's factory, serving a total of 184 years combined. He agrees that the cereal bag serves as a great history lesson, and called it a "perfect" coincidence that it was found by a history teacher.
