Fortified Oat Flakes

Fortified Oat Flakes From: Post
Introduced in 1970

The first box described this cereal as "more nutritious than hot oatmeal". Later boxes referred to it as "high nutrition cereal". Commercials for the cereal used the tagline "Taste something different for breakfast."

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 too wish this was back. It was the only cereal I liked that mom was happy to give me.

Please bring this cereal back as it was. Same packaging, same original ingredients, with no modern additions like that horrid, diabetes-inducing HFCS (high fructose corn syrup). I used to eat this when I was younger and it has the most wonderful taste of any cereal I ever had, ever.
