Grape-Nuts Flakes
From: Post
Introduced in 1932

  • In 1936, Grape Nuts Flakes sponsored a radio serial called Hoof Beats. The star was a retired rodeo champ named Buck Jones. According to Buck, "When it comes to grub for breakfast, nothing hits the spot with me like a heapin' bowl of Grape Nuts Flakes.


  • In 1933, Grape Nuts Flakes were promoted during reports from Admiral Byrd's real-life journey to the North Pole. In reports from his adventure, the explorer told radio audiences that his men were eating Grape Nut Flakes to "fortify themselves from the punishing cold and hardships of Antarctica."

A vintage magazine ad described Grape-Nuts Flakes like this:

"New! Crispier! Sweeter!

"New, new, new Post's Grape-Nuts Flakes - crispiest wheat flakes you ever dreamed of! Every flake now has a roasted-in curl that helps keep it crunchy right down to the last delicious spoonful - even when swimming in milk!

"Yes, sweeter and better than any wheat flake you ever tasted! New Grape-Nuts Flakes have a flavor bakes through and trough each flake. And remember, 2 minutes after you eat them, that whole-wheat energy starts to work for you!"

Company Description: Founded by C.W. Post, the company began in 1895 in Battle Creek, Michigan under the name Postum Cereals. Their first product was a coffee substitute called Postum. The first breakfast cereal to come from the company was Grape-Nuts in 1897... Read on and see all cereals from Post

I agree that the flakes get mushy quickly. However they really taste good. I love this cereal.

I've always loved Grape-Nut Flakes, but the actual flakes seem to be getting smaller and smaller. Liked them better when they were the size of most bran and corn flakes. The small flakes turn to mush not long after they're drenched in milk.

Grape Nut Flakes are very delicious and taste much better than regular Grape Nuts.

GNF was the # 1 most unpopular cereal with kids in the mid-50s. Elderly people loved it for its health values but kids had to have it jack-hammered down their throats, using Hop-A-Long Cassidy, Fords, Mercurys, trucks, appliances, and other assorted toys to get them to eat the horrid stuff!

They can be ordered online at walmart.com for $2.98/box. So everyone relax. I personally don't really want to give Walmart any of my business but I might have to for this.

Cathy, Grape Nut Flakes are sold at Wal Mart in Chattanooga at all their stores as well as Publix. Maybe it is regional for Wal Mart. Ask one of the Wal Mart managers to see if they can order it as it sells really well at the Wal Mart I shop at. Good luck.
