The History Behind American Breakfast Foods

Tom Blank from Weird History Food breaks down exactly where our favorite breakfast foods come from.

Breakfast is our favorite meal of the day, in the interest of full transparency. In fact, we love breakfast so much, we have it for lunch and dinner sometimes.

There is no bad time of day to have some breakfast, that is for sure. Of course, there are many of us who have no idea about the history and lore of our favorite breakfast items.

That’s where Weird History Food’s Tom Blank comes into play. He is always providing us with informative videos that allow us to learn more about a wide range of topics.

In his latest video, he is examining the origins of various breakfast foods that are popular in the United States. That means that some of your favorites are sure to be represented here.

Toast, coffee, cereal, French toast, the whole gang is here. In addition to these timeless classics, Blank also provides us with further background on donuts, bagels and the fresh squeezed orange juice that we all know and love.

Blank definitely goes deep on the cereal. He’s not here to merely explain the history of each cereal, he is on hand to provide us with a detailed rundown on all of the cartoon mascots that adorn each box.

It’s a great video for anyone who loves a good breakfast and we are going to assume that list includes everyone reading this. It is simply one of many great videos from this channel. Those who have never seen all of the awesomeness that Weird History Food has to offer are definitely going to want to check out this channel for themselves.

Blank has a way of talking us through various topics that we absolutely love. “When you think of American breakfast food, you probably think of things like cereal, and milk, toast, eggs, pancakes, French toast, orange juice, and coffee, or a McDonald’s breakfast burrito. But few realize that there are actual factual reasons Americans eat the food they do at breakfast,” the description reads.

Words cannot do justice to Tom’s videos, though. You’ll have to check it out for yourself!

Now, if you will excuse us, this clip has made us rather hungry and we are going to go grab a bowl of cereal!
