You might have enjoyed a nice bowl of cereal this morning for breakfast. If so, you probably poured it out of a big rectangle box. Why does cereal come in boxes?
The plastic bag within the box is to preserve the freshness of the cereal. The reason for the cardboard box and that specific shape has to do with making it easy to pack within the truck and also to display on the shelves at the store.
Enjoy your cereal!
