Land of Milk and Crunch: Kellogg’s Crunchy Nut Cornflakes

Synopsis
A television advertisement for Kellogg’s Crunchy Nut breakfast cereal. The following lines, a pastiche of John of Gaunt’s speech in Richard II, are read over Elgar’s Pomp and Circumstance March No. 1 ‘Land of Hope and Glory’.

"This Crunchy Nut isle
This other Eden
This Honey and Nut Paradise
This land built by spoons
To harbour our bowls of milk and crunch
A breakfast served to seduce our taste buds
With endless munch and crunch and bite and chew You can have your toast, you can spread your butter, but nothing beats A CRUNCHY NUTTER
"The whole nation has Gone Crunchy Nut".
