No one.

I really wasn’t impressed with the winner from last week (Fred’s Frosted Flakes) and none of the recommendations stood out to me.

So, I think starting next week I will do a rotating Flakes title. Keep throwing in ideas at the bottom and maybe, just maybe, I will pick it for the following weeks flakes.

Do yo win anything if your title gets picked? Nope, just the self satisfaction that you did something that influenced the wonderful people of Corn Nation.

Thanks for all of those who participated. I appreciate the effort.
