Multi-density cereal product

Multi-density cereal product

Official Gazette of the United States Patent & Trademark Office Patents 1257(4), Apr 23

A consumer cereal product including at least first and second portions, the first portion having a specific gravity less than a liquid, such as milk, so that it floats in the liquid, and the second portion having a specific gravity greater than that liquid so that it sinks therein. Alternatively, cereal is provided having a specific gravity less than a liquid so that the cereal floats, and a portion is coated with a soluble substance having a density sufficient to cause that portion to sink. As the coating dissolves, the coated portion becomes more buoyant and rises to the top of the liquid. In a further embodiment, cereal is provided wherein each piece of cereal has a specific gravity low enough to float in a liquid and includes a first and second portion, the first portion having a higher density than the second portion so that the cereal piece floats with the lower density portion to the top. A soluble coating is provided over the lower density portion to increase the density of this portion such that the cereal piece initially floats with the higher density portion to the top. As the coating dissolves, the cereal rotates so that the lower density portion is toward the top. In each case, the cereal is colored, textured, shaped, sized, or otherwise differentiated to provide entertainment to a consumer of the product. The various embodiments can be combined as desired to achieve a cereal product that provides amusement and entertainment to consumers thereof.
