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 would love to see this back on the store shelves. If it is brought back PLEASE do not modernize it. No nuts, no honey, no cinnamon, no yogurt clusters, no flax seeds... just good old school Post Oat Flakes! Thanks!

I really miss them! One of my favorites of all time. Please bring them back and please leave out all the other junk, ie: cranberries, nuts and any other disdainful food items. They mess up that grand taste of oat flakes.

I loved Post Fortified Oat Flakes when I was younger. I always look for it when I go grocery shopping, hoping it has been brought back. I'm not sure why it was discontinued. There is not any other cereal that is similar. Please consider making it again!
