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.

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

When I was a kid, Fortified Oat Flakes was hands down my favorite cereal. I really wish they would bring it back.

I fully agree with those who want it back. Who is the CEO who decided not to make it anymore? Fire him!

I would do almost anything to get this cereal back. Wonderful childhood and teen memory of wanting only this creel every morning. I never got tired of it. I love all kinds of oat cereals the most, but there is no comparing them to Fortified Oat Flakes. I wish Post would bring them back without tampering with recipe, maybe they could sell it to Quaker to produce it. It was so full of oat flavor, not necessarily flavored taste. I can still remember the taste now. It's a craving all my adult life for this cereal. So glad I found this website.

Why was this cereal discontinued. It was the best oat cereal ever. It had a distinct flavor and texture. I have tried all kinds of oat cereal since this went off the market and I have not yet found anything as good. Why, Oh Why did they take it off the market? Please bring it back but please do not sweeten like all these other sweet cereals that all you taste is sugar.
