What is 'Unfrosted' about?

Set in Michigan in 1963, the movie takes a deep dive into the Kellogg's and Post rivalry between them, and a race to create a pastry that will change the face of breakfast - the Pop-Tarts.

The tasty breakfast treat was created by William Post in 1964.

William Post grew up in Grand Rapids, Michigan and after retiring, Post lived in Glen Arbor, Michigan, where he continued as a consultant for The Keebler Company for 20 years.

Mr. Post passed away at 96 on February, 10th, 2024.
