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.

Do you suppose the company will take the rating and comments of this cereal to heart? Rated 5 out of 5 and people are crying for it as am I! I have yet to find a cereal that even remotely compares to Post Fortified Oat Flakes. Post, BRING THIS CEREAL BACK, PLEASE!!

It tasted great. But, because it was only lightly toasted, it turned to mush pretty fast.

There is nor was there ever a cereal to compare to Fortified Oat Flakes. I searched for three or four years for it. I could not believe they quit making it. It's been over 30 year and I still crave it. Hope they have them in Heaven because they were HEAVENLY!

I truly miss Fortified Oat Flakes. Post would be my only cereal company if they brought it back as it was. I guess it didn't have enough sugar in it to make current peoples tastes... Please bring it back!

Oat Flakes was always my favorite cereal. It was brought back for a short while, although it didn't seem quite the same. Now it's gone again. Guess there weren't enough of us buying it! I wish they'd bring it back, too, but in the original recipe, please. :D
