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 need those Post fortified Oat Flakes back. It was the best cereal out! There isn't one person that I've talked to that ate that Post cereal, that doesn't want that product back!

Please! Please! Please! Post says it wasn't popular! It is Popular with people that ate that oat cereal All I have to do is ask someone that was alive when the cereal was available. They all say they miss that one! Now just Upgrade the box design but don't change the cereal recipe! You will have a hit on your hands again.

Now just get is out by October 2015 - Ok ? Please! If you get that out and maybe you can go in the candy business and bring back the famous WHIZ bar. too. Ha! Ha!

My favorite cereal ever! I loved the flavor! Maybe it was the malt. Can someone tell us why it went away in the first place? It makes no sense to me!

Please bring this back... I have sent numerous requests to Post with no response. Everyone who wants this back should send Post Cereals emails.

I also grew up eating this as a kid and actually would choose this over the sugary cereals. I was once again searching to see if I could find this back on the market somewhere when I ran across this page. I've also looked for recipes to make the stuff myself without success.

I think Fortified Oat Flakes is probably my favorite cereal ever. Why won't they give the people what they want?

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