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 always liked Post Oat Flakes and do not understand why it was discontinued. Post should bring it back. Have they ever responded to consumer's requests?

I remember this cereal coming out back when anything made with OATS was supposed to be healthy, make you live longer and cure diseases. It sure was tasty. I would LOVE to see it back on the market.

Nothing better the PFOF. Post was crazy for dropping the best breakfast cereal ever. Based on a more health minded consumer, this would be a perfect cereal to bring back. I might even buy 5 boxes at a time. I sure do miss the flavor and the memories.

For years I have hoped to find this cereal again. Seems there are many others who feel the same. PLEASE POST! How could it NOT profit you to do so.

This was a huge seller for Post Cereals and would be even more successful today. BRING IT BACK!

I ate Fortified Oat Flakes as a young teenager in the early '70s and it was one of my favorite cereals. I have yet to find anything like it on the market. I wish they would bring it back, but without all that granola crunch stuff you see in everything today. Just plain old flakes please.

My favorite cereal of all times. I have always been looking for a replacement but have never found one that comes close to the flavor. I do not understand why they discontinued it.

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.
