Did I encounter a modern product in the period film "Changeling"?

In the film "Changeling", Jolie's character fed her kid Frosted Flakes in 1928. The packaging was reminiscent of something you might see in that era. Google tells me Corn Flakes were around then and that Tony the Tiger was introduced to Sugar Frosted Flakes in the 50's. The word "sugar" was removed later.
Is my curiosity and subsequent searching for the answer to this question a result of clever marketing? Because now I kind of want a bowl of Frosted Flakes.
