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.

Dear POST: Fortified Oat Flakes was, and still would be my favorite cereal. I was hurt, and disappointed when I could not find it any more. Nothing came close, I searched for years. What can we, Post Fortified Oat Flakes Lovers, do to get these back, PLEASE! I am begging you to seriously consider making them again. Please.

Bring them back! Please! I ate these for years until someone got smart and quit making them... Why do all the good things go away?

Like so many of my compadres below, I grew up loving this cereal and begging mom to buy it. There has never been a comparable choice!

I would LOVE to see the POST Company put this back on the market. I'd advertise to my friends and work associates on how it is. I loved this from a little kid until it was discontinued. I would have kept on eating it forever. BRING IT BACK! I want Fortified Oat Flakes!

I'd like to know the ingredients listed on the SIDE of the box. Perhaps we could figure out how to make our own - as Post still hasn't responded to the outcry to bring it back! Does anyone have the list of the ingredients? My only complaint about the cereal itself is that it got soggy too fast. Still, the flavor was better than anything else on the market!

You have to wonder why a popular item is pulled off the shelves. Perhaps with today's stricter food labeling laws there is something that gives it its unique flavor that they'd rather not disclose. I've tried every oat cereal ever made I think and nothing has the same taste as Post Fortified Oat flakes. My favorite cereal of all time.
