My folks would buy this by the case because I ate a box for breakfast every morning. And I was only about 110 lbs soaking wet! But this was my all time favorite cereal! I don't eat cereal anymore. I've tried all kinds of others (and I loved cereal as a kid) but after I found this, I never ate anything else. And once I couldn't find this anymore, I stopped eating breakfast (occasional eggs, hash browns, sausage patties, and toast now but not very often). I still check the cereal aisles every time I'm in the stores hoping to find some kind of just plain oat flakes.

I, too, ate this as a kid and was just searching for it when I came across this site. It was by far the best cereal I had, ever! As I remember, it came in relatively small boxes so, my mom didn't always get it since it disappeared from the pantry as soon as she brought it home.

I am another person who ate this cereal as a child and through my young adulthood. I suddenly remembered it today (at age 60). I thought it probably was no longer produced; sadly, I see that's a fact. I, too, would buy this buy the case. Seriously. I don't eat 'cold' cereal much but if this were produced again I would eat it daily. PLEASE BRING IT BACK, even for a limited time!

Please do anything you can to convince Post that this health conscious cereal must be on the shelves again. It was like eating a crunchy bowl of oatmeal. I often wonder what the reason was behind the decision to discontinue this cereal about 30 years ago.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.
