  1. 1. My Inquiry Project By: Chelsea Burns
  2. 2. Which cereal stays crunchiest in milk the longest?  Frosted Flakes  Apple Jacks  Cocoa Krispies  Pops  Froot Loops
  3. 3. Research  Pops = “gun-puffed”  Froot Loops and Apple Jacks = “extruded gun-puffed”  Cocoa Krispies = “oven-puffed”  Frosted Flakes = starch from corn kernels are cooked into flakes
  4. 4. Procedures:  Step One: I decided to use a “fun pack” that has five different mini boxes of cereals in them to test my inquiry. The cereals are Froot Loops, Frosted Flakes, Pops, Cocoa Krispies, and Apple Jacks.  Step Two: I put the whole mini box of each cereal into the same bowl and added one cup of milk to each bowl. Then I waited and watched to see which cereal became the soggiest the fastest and which stayed crunchy the longest.  Step Three: I found that Frosted Flakes became soggy the fastest and Pops stayed crunchy the longest. I tested my observation by feeling the cereals and trying to crunch it between my fingers.  Results: In retrospect, learned that “gun-puffed” cereals stay crunchy in milk longer then “oven-puffed” or cooked starch cereals. This could be because they more closely resemble popcorn and the corn kernel that is popped has a stronger resistance to milk breaking down its walls.
