I loved this cereal back in the 60's. It had a good wheat taste to it, better than the Wheaties taste at that time. You did have to be careful eating it sometimes because some pieces seemed to be over-baked. Altogether, this is one cereal that I wish had never gone away, I really enjoyed it!

I thought they were very good. This is another cereal that I wish would make a comeback.

I loved this cereal, and the box backs were pretty amusing, too. I remember: "We had these in Russia, only we called them Steppes."

This stuff would cut your gums and make them bleed. That's why it went off the market. SNL made a skit about a breakfast cereal that was made of rocks and broke your teeth; this must have been the one they were spoofing!

I only tried one box and loved it. It was my favorite ceral and when I went back to get another it was gone for good. Would love to see it come back.

I remember STAX Cereal as being VERY tasty. I also wish it would be made available again. It's certainly better than most of the cereals currently being sold.

The best cereal ever. I wish they would bring it back! Btw... me and my brother would try to stack the Stax, but we only ever got 5 pieces high. They must have been glued together in the advertisements.

I agree. I still think about Stax today - nearly 50 years later. It is time for a comeback.

Yep, mom bought it and despite all the sugar stuff out there that I ate, this was my favorite, then poof... It was gone! Off the shelves.

By fun but bad
I must be the only one who disagrees about Stax cereal; to me it tasted like dusty cardboard and the only reason I ate it was because the ads were so clever. People kept stacking up the cereal squares, one guy explained "Of course I'm stacking it, it's called STAX. If you were supposed to eat it, it'd be called EATS." Sadly, he had a point, it really was more fun to stack up the little squares than eat them, they were like stale graham crackers. Still, I wouldn't mind seeing it on the shelves again.

I loved Wheat Stax in the 60's. I wish I knew where to get some or is it still being made? Another great cereal was Clackers. They were a graham cracker flavor.

Absolutely the best cereal ever made. I can still taste it.

I'm 54 and remember eating Stax cereal growing up. It was my favorite cereal ever. It was crunchy, held milk, and tasted good! Then all of a sudden we couldn't find it. I'd love to see it return.

This was my favorite cereal when I was growing up. This 52 year old would like to see GM start making Stax again.

In today's world of re-inventions, cover bands, retro this & that, I think it is about time that General Mills should consider bringing back Stax Cereal. I am now 54, and, like many of you, would love to see it return to grocery store shelves!!!

I loved Wheat Stax when I was a kid - it was definitely a favorite of mine! I truly enjoyed the flavor! Many people, even those my age, in their 50's, don't seem to remember them. To me, they were one of the best cereals ever!
Comment submitted: 9/1/2011 (#5213)
I definitely remember these! Best cereal ever!

This was my favorite cereal as a kid. I'm 50 now and still would love to eat it. Please tell General Mills to bring it back.

I loved it! Why do they take away the good stuff?

This was my favorite cereal as a young adult. Is it available anywhere today, I would love to buy it again?

That was Marty Ingels in the Stax TV commercials, btw.

My all time favorite... wish they'd bring back Stax!
Comment submitted: 1/17/2011 (#3619)
I say bring it back, it was one of my favorites!
Comment submitted: 11/18/2010 (#3298)
PLEASE bring back Stax and in it's original form too... don't try to re-do it!!! PLEASE!

Wheat Stax, Quake, and Sugar (or Frosted) Stars should be brought back into production.
Comment submitted: 6/20/2010 (#2319)
Bring back Stax!

I remember this well. It was as much fun to eat as to stack; it had a crunchy whole-wheat flavor that didn't "stack" up to Spoon-Size Shredded Wheat. I miss Wheat Stax.

I remember this cereal and every time we would come to visit my grandma in Ohio we would buy boxes to take back to Virginia. The texture and taste has not been duplicated since.

I also remember this cereal from the late 60's. This was my favorite, as well.
Comment submitted: 9/4/2009 (#515)
Favorite cereal of all time. Never knew why it was discontinued. My memory puts this cereal back in the late 60s, early 70's.

I forgot all about Stax, but it all came flooding back when I saw the picture. The ads were silly but the cereal was actually very good. Would love to see old commercials... anybody have them to see?

Loved this cereal when I was a kid. Never did know what happened to it...

The was my all time favorite cereal ruined by an utterly stupid advertising campaign.
