A California Food Bank has a windfall.  2 tons of cereal – Frosted Flakes and Corn Flakes cereal with gold medal winner Michael Phelps photo on the cover landed at the facility.  They were suspicious at first, but in these tough times, it was a welcome donation for the hungry!

The gift just flew off the shelfs and some employees even kept it as soveniers.  In fact the boxes are being auctioned on Ebay for a buy-it-now price of $19.99, while some are going for $34.99 in the bids right now.

Kelloggs had not renewed their contract with Phelps after his infamous picture of smoking pot.
