A cereal fan has spent a staggering £36,800 tasting cornflakes in 60 countries - in search of the perfect bowlful.

Married Mick Hobday, 33, munched his way through a massive 4,000 bowls of cornflakes while on his travels across five continents.

He has made numerous trips around the world over ten years and tries to buy only local brand flakes.

Will the BBC be making a 'cereal' documentary about his adventures?

"Gæð a wyrd swa hio scel, ac gecnáwan þín gefá!": "Fate goes ever as she shall, but know thine enemy!".
I can teach you with a quip, if I've a mind; I can trick you into learning with a laugh; Oh, winnow all my folly and you'll find, A grain or two of truth among the chaff!

Probably, but they will then sell it to sky.

In an ideal World a law would be passed were NO guns were allowed and all those out there destroyed, trouble is the law makers are not going to take a risk of trying to pass that without making sure they are armed first.

I didn`t realise cornflakes were that popular around the world. I am not having this? he is addicted to cornflakes, found nothing new to make money out of his round the world adventure so made it to look like it was infact a cornflake quest.........suppose thats new?!!!!

So maybe the BBC will make it unto a docu after all.

No word on which country had his favourite Cornflake?  Disappointing, all it said is that he was still searching for the perfect flake....
