Corn Crunk In My Sundae

Today’s breakfast is cornflakes. Just regular ole cornflakes with a little milk in the bowl and a dash of sugar. Nothing fancy like nuts or berries or other fruit in it. Plain ole, plain ole! I like this for breakfast 2-3 times in a week.

But what is this obsession that Malayalees have in adding cornflakes in ice cream sundaes? I dunno, I haven’t seen it anywhere else in India (not that I travel much) but in Kerala, they tend to add cornflakes at the bottom of the sundaes, along with nuts and dried raisins. While I understand nuts,  berries, fruits and dried raisins, what the hell is cornflakes doing in the bowl or glass? It does not belong there.

Did it start so to economize the amount of ice cream that they have put in the bowl so fill it partly with cheap stuff like cornflakes to make the bowl seem more filled when in reality you are being stingy with the ice cream. I guess so. Or do some people just really like crunchy stuff in their ice cream? But why not give it as an option rather than putting it in all the sundaes?
