Throw it away? That's the tastiest part! I have to say I also can't imagine why you'd have quite so much "dust" at the bottom of the packet, that just isn't normal in my experience (and I eat a LOT of cornflakes.)

Mind you, I never eat the Kellogg's variety - they're vastly overpriced and very flimsy; maybe that's the reason for the excessive crushing? I'm generally quite happy with Lidl's version, though most of the supermarket own brand versions are fine these days (not the value/bargain lines, those are awful.)

I don't understand why there is so much dust, maybe my dust is larger than yours, I like crunchy large cornflakes, even though I haven't eaten brekkie for years, anything below 5mm is dust.

Yep, we are talking good old Kellogg's cornflakes, maybe we are being to rough with the boxes, or Tesco's delivery drivers are crushing them.
