Tony the Tiger

Who knows?

MMDE: Tony the Tiger has a black nose

Current: Tony the Tiger has a blue nose

Tony the Tiger: He's been around since 1952, his frosted flakes might have been Greeeeeaaaaat! but what colour was his nose? Many are saying it's only recently become a prominent blue, whereas they have a false memory of it being black - or is the Mandela Effect at play here?

Few people realise he was created as a result of a competition Kelloggs ran to find the official mascot for a brand-new breakfast cereal. Eugene Kolkey, already a well-known graphic artist, came up with the design, won the contest and he's been with us ever since.

Complete with his blue/black nose...
