Fortified Oat Flakes Commercial


Early 1970's Fortified Oat Flakes Commercial: The Englander Family (A Reenactment)

A family sites down to the breakfast table with a selection of breakfast cereals. Among the cereals are Kellogg's Corn Flakes and Nabisco Shredded Wheat. A mystery cereal is presented to the group...

Narrator: We're having breakfast with the Englander family. And these are their favorite cereals. But this morning, they're trying something different, a cereal they've never had before.

Mother: It's something I'd pick.

Grandmother: Delicious.

Father: I'm going nuts trying to figure out what makes it different.

Son: What is it?

Narrator: Post Fortified Oat Flakes is lightly toasted, slightly sweet, deliciously different from any other cereal, and it's a high nutrition cereal.

Father: You've got a great family cereal here.

I will look for a Trader Joe's substitute as there is no hope of ever getting it again from Post.

I contacted them too. I'm an older gen xer and my mom ate them while pregnant with me. Never found s replacement, but I did substitute with TJ's Heritage flakes. They aren't like oat flakes at all, but they are a good, unsweetened flake. I think it was the malt in oat flakes that made them so good.

Growing up, we only kept two cereals in our cupboard. Shredded Wheat for my dad and Fortified Oat Flakes for my older brother and me. It was our cereal of choice. Always for breakfast and quite often a go to for supper. Have yet to find a cereal I enjoy as much. Would be great to see it on grocery store shelves again.

I wrote them years ago requesting them to bring it back and they wouldn't. I no longer eat cereal!

Our whole family loved it when I was a kid. We always had a box in the cupboard. I don't know what Post could've been thinking by discontinuing it.

I grew up with this stuff. Hands down, the best tasting and most healthy cereal I've ever eaten. When they stopped selling it, I went to eggs... uuugh!

Post is making a big mistake in not offering this cereal to us Boomers. I would buy a case of this if it ever came out again. This is my favorite cereal of all time!
