I think this is the best tasting cereal I have ever eaten. I contacted the company a couple of years ago and they told me they had no plans to bring it back. What a shame.

I loved Oat Flakes. I also wish they would bring it back. My brother wants it back as well.

This was the only cereal that I would eat growing up. I miss it. I don't even eat cereal anymore, but I would if it was here again.

I have loved this cereal since I was a child. It has always been my all-time favorite. I was thrilled when they brought it back and wonder why they stopped making it. Post should think seriously about putting it back on the market.

A few years ago I called Post to say "What happened to Oat Flakes?" They are cruel. It was the best. I still miss it.
Comment submitted: 2/6/2014 (#15966)
The best ever. Bring it back. It'll sell. What do we gotta do?

So happy to know I'm not the only one missing this cereal. The original Post Oat Flakes were the best; Post would have a steady customer in me if they would bring it back.

I wrote to Post several years ago and was told it was sold to another company (forget who). There were several thousand comments then, as well. Has always been my favorite cereal. Still have dreams about it... lol. Have been trying to find the taste in other oat cereals, but, to no avail. Clearly there are many fans... please, please bring it back.

My favorite cereal of all times. My dad's favorite too. Last time I found them was around 1994 in a military commissary overseas. Post - please bring this cereal back!

There were six kids in my family and we all passed on the bowl of Fruit Loops in favor of Oat Flakes. LOVED it! Can we have it back please!

Post Oat Flakes was the best cereal ever. Breakfast was always the best meal of the day! I know oats have become expensive, but bring it back, Post! I'll pay! I'll pay! - Old Oater

This was the best cereal ever. Every time I go down the cereal isle, I check to see if they have been re-introduced. Nothing else comes close.

I ate them as an adult and even my kids liked it. Best cereal I have ever had, bar none! Please bring them back home to mom.

It's all about MONEY! If Oat Flakes were a big seller, it would still be around. End of story.

I have been longing for Oat Flakes! I'm thrilled to find this website talking about them. I'm among those who count Oat Flakes as their FAVORITE from childhood,and unique among cereals. Nothing else comes close. I would sign a petition. I would sign a subscription delivery plan!

I miss Oat Flakes. With all the hype about oats lowering cholesterol, it seems an ideal time for their return.

Please bring Oat Flakes back! I have searched my entire adult life for this unique flavor from my childhood!
Comment submitted: 3/3/2013 (#11108)
Bring it back! Post Oat Flakes were my favorite as a young man and they'd be my favorite as an old man if they ever come back.
Comment submitted: 2/23/2013 (#10991)
My favorite cold cereal hands down. Nothing else comes close.
Comment submitted: 2/17/2013 (#10868)
I have rarely found a cereal that tasted as good as Fortified Oat Flakes. As a youngster, I grew up eating that cereal and it was approved by my mother who was a Registered Nurse. She always feed Dad and I healthy foods. I was eating cereal this morning and had a flashback to the flavor of Oat Flakes. By the looks of it, others are missing the flavor too. By the way, I also miss Schlitz Malt Liquor!

An Oat Flakes comeback is long, long overdue!

The Oat Flakes from Post was the best cereal ever made in my opinion. Please bring it back.

Post Oat Flakes is the taste of my childhood. To have it back on the grocery shelves would be wonderful.

Best cereal ever. Haven't had them since I was in college. Please bring them back. You're sales for Post will triple!

Best cereal ever! Have never found any even close. I see other cereals making a comeback, why not ours?

This was the best cereal to eat especially when I put it on top of French vanilla ice cream. Rating is excellent! By Jeanne.
Comment submitted: 9/28/2012 (#9262)
When will they bring this cereal back? It must be obvious that there's a demand for it.

I would like to see Post bring back Oat Flakes. As a youngster it was the only nutritious cereal I would eat. I have always had trouble keeping on weight and at 5'8" I need to be at least 120 pounds to look my best. As a young adult I had no trouble maintaining with a couple bowls of cereal, one for breakfast and one before bed, but I never found another cereal I liked enough to eat as often and my weight is now down around 110. I have no taste for anything any sweeter, it was just perfect. I do miss it.

This gets my vote for All-Time Greatest Cereal. I hate when my favorite product is discontinued - seems to happen all too often.

Bring Oat Flakes back! It's awesome! Glad to see there's so many fans.
Comment submitted: 7/6/2012 (#8380)
I sure would love to see this cereal come back. Have tried to find something like it and can't.
Comment submitted: 6/23/2012 (#8168)
I ate at least two very full bowls of Post Fortified Oak Flakes during my last pregnancy l964. Then my daughter and I lived on them until we could no longer find them at any market. Why would Post take something so perfect off the market. Makes no sense at all. If it ain't broke, do not fix it.

Please Post... bring this cereal back! It was absolutely the best tasting cereal ever. Been trying to find something similar without success. Way better than Honey Bunches of Oats.
Comment submitted: 6/10/2012 (#7971)
Ditto to all the comments! Please bring these back!
Comment submitted: 6/6/2012 (#7932)
I miss my Oat Flakes!! Post is losing out by not making it any more. Please bring it back!!
Comment submitted: 5/15/2012 (#7682)
Please bring back Oat Flakes! It's the ONLY cereal I ever liked!
Comment submitted: 3/8/2012 (#6780)
Bring Back Post Oat Flakes now. No cereal comes close to its unique taste. I would by them exclusively. It was the only cereal I ate as a child. My mother could not keep enough on hand.
Comment submitted: 3/4/2012 (#6688)
I was a HUGE fan of Oat Flakes in the 70's and I was THRILLED when it was re-marketed for a short time in the early 90's and I've been yearning and searching the cereal shelves for it (or a GOOD substitute) ever since. NOTHING comes close.
Comment submitted: 3/4/2012 (#6685)
Post Oat Flakes were the best. I also hope they bring it back, but I'm not holding my breath.
Comment submitted: 2/9/2012 (#6464)
I have written to Post several times to ask them to bring back Post Oat Flakes. They tell me they cancelled it due to lack of sales. I Suggest everyone bombard Post with letters & e-mail requests for Post Oat Flakes And Another Favorite, CW Post Granola.

I wish someone else made some version of this. It's the best tasting cereal ever.

I have been looking for this cereal for awhile now, it was a favorite during my early years. Hope it is re-introduced sometime soon. Jack from Jersey
Comment submitted: 12/31/2011 (#6081)
Not only was it my favorite and the best tasting, but if you read the nutrition info on the side of the box, it was more nutritious than all the other boxes on the shelf. The last time I saw any was early 90's.

I have been looking for Post Oat Flakes cereal for a long time and didn't realize that Post stopped making it until I went to this site. I sure wish they would bring it back. Post is loosing money by not making Oat Flakes cereal. Hurry up, I'm starving!!!
Comment submitted: 10/28/2011 (#5582)
My favorite cereal of all time and I'm a sugar lover believe it or not! I can't believe they stopped making it, I'm sure I could've kept the company in business buying these alone! Bring our beloved cereal back! No other cereal comes close!
Comment submitted: 10/22/2011 (#5546)
I vote yes - please bring the great cereal back.
Comment submitted: 9/21/2011 (#5312)
Post Oat Flakes were the best! It's gratifying to see how many other people loved it as much as my sister and I did. Please oh please bring them back! You will make a lotta people real happy!

I still look for this cereal whenever I go to a different part of the country, hoping to find it again. It is my all time favorite.
Comment submitted: 6/15/2011 (#5079)
I loved these Oat Flakes. Bring them back! Please. Bring them back!
Comment submitted: 5/19/2011 (#4883)
I loved this cereal too. I would like to find a good oat flakes cereal again. Kellogg's Complete Oat flakes wasn't as good, but it was good enough... but they discontinued it shortly after I discovered it. I want oat flakes cereal! Does anyone know of any? Brand doesn't matter...

I so miss the great taste of oat flakes. I hope the Post cereal company will try to produce it again.

By Oat flake fan
Funny how they make tons of cereal no one gives a damn about, yet they take away the best cereal ever... makes no sense to me.
Comment submitted: 2/13/2011 (#3905)
I used to eat this cereal for breakfast and lunch. I would buy at least 10 boxes per week. I have never been able to find anything close to the taste. I simply don't understand why they stopped making it. Every time I go down the cereal aisle I keep hoping to see the blue box on the shelf!
Comment submitted: 2/6/2011 (#3836)
Hey Post... you are all a bunch of crazies if you don't bring this back to market.
Comment submitted: 1/27/2011 (#3724)
I have called and e-mailed to Post to bring back this cereal. Love the taste and there is nothing like it in the market. If it came back I think I would buy the whole shelf. Miss the taste and I crave it every time I want cereal. Happy to find a sight that loves it as much as I do.

This was always in the cupboard growing up in the 60's & 70's. Who knew... Oatmeal has been known to lower cholesterol!
Comment submitted: 1/17/2011 (#3625)
Always my favorite. Others had toys that drew my eye (Cap'n Crunch) but then I'd have to eat them before I could get a new box of Oat Flakes.
Comment submitted: 1/11/2011 (#3571)
I've searched all over the internet for Oat Flakes to no avail. What the heck?! Grrrrr!!!

I miss my favorite cereal, Post oat flakes! It always tasted so 'clean' and fresh. So good with lots of fresh milk. Oh well. Sure wish it would come back!

Best cereal I have ever eaten and I miss it. If Post would bring it back I'd buy it more often if I had to stockpile it just to keep it on the market.

I hid it from my kids even. Three growing boys can eat. I usually ate two bowls full and I am not a big eater. We should all go to post and tell them over and over that we want Oat Flakes.

Why have stopped making Oat Flakes? What a nasty shame.

I loved this stuff as a kid and forgot about it. I was at a store and saw it about 20 years ago and still loved it but I can''t find it now. BRING IT BACK PLEASE!
Comment submitted: 7/16/2010 (#2462)
The best ever! Please bring it back!

This cereal was GREAT! Please somebody bring it back so that I can enjoy breakfast again. My whole family loved it.

I only knew Fortified Oat Flakes but I'd be very happy to have either product back again.
Comment submitted: 6/7/2010 (#2242)
I loved Oats Flakes. In the 1970's I would eat them more than once a day. I loved them so much that it came a time mt mom would start to hide to box of Oat Flakes in order to have some left for during the week until the next grocery shopping. Unfortunately, I believe they don't sell Oats Flakes any longer (at least I no longer find it in the grocery store). I really wish they would market Post Oat Flakes again.

By Oat Flake Lover
Here is a quote from the Oct 25,1961 Toledo Blade: "NEW FOOD PRODUCTS: The first flake cereal made with oats is announced by General Foods and is labeled Post Oat Flakes". This mention of Post Oat Flakes is nearly 2 years later than the Dec 3,1959 advertisement in the newspaper 'THE DAY' which mentions Post Oat Flakes. Please put Post Oat Flakes on the time line.
Note From Mr Breakfast:
Thanks so much for this information Oat Flake Lover. Super helpful. I really appreciate the input.

I loved this cereal as a child. Please produce it again! I am a 57 y/o granddad would like to share this with his grandchildren.
Comment submitted: 11/17/2009 (#917)
OMG! PLEASE start making this cereal again. It's been years & I can still taste it. NO OTHER CEREAL compares to this childhood memory. My father loves this cereal too & would love to be able to sit down and eat one or a million more bowls with me just like we use to when I was a child. Favorite memory of me & my Pops eating this together for breakfast & many times as a snack.
Comment submitted: 11/10/2009 (#884)
Fortified Oat Flakes is my all time favorite. It had a delicious flavor. I hope that you will start making it again.

When I was younger I really enjoyed your Post Oak Flakes. Then I could not find them in my local stores. Do you still make them, if so, where can buy post Oak Flakes now.

By Oat Flaker
The original Post Oat Flakes was by far the best tasting cereal ever. In the mid 1960's, Post tinkered with the recipe to get
a product that would not get soggy in milk, calling it Fortified Oat Flakes. These were good, but far inferior in taste to the original recipe. Post Oat Flakes with cream were really good.
