I grew up on Muffets. They are much better then the competition! We would put the hot water on them then squeeze it out and add milk and sugar. 1950's version of a hot breakfast! Wish we could still get them in the US!!

Toured the plant in Niagara falls, Ontario as a kid. Just bought some Muskets at Sharps. Still great.

Wow, sends me back a few decades. Had these a lot when I was a kid; we'd pour boiling water on a couple in a bowl, let them soften up a bit - not TOO much or they'd get all mushy! - then squeeze the water out by putting another bowl on top. Yes, we were handling boiling water as kids. I can actually "memory smell" them right now - how weird! Anyway, add some milk and brown sugar and eat away.

Rather than lamenting on the past, if this cereal means that much to all of you, why not send Pepsico/Quaker a message telling them how much you miss it and want to know when you can expect it to again start the US distribution of your favorite "Muffets?" Preaching to the choir will get you nowhere. Contacting the maker with enough mail may have a very positive result for American Muffet eaters. I sent mine! And while were on the subject of cereal... What happened to Kellogg's "Concentrate Cereal?" I could eat an entire box in one sitting. Well, perhaps two sittings.

Being sold in Canada. I have not been able to find them in the United States or on line. If anyone knows where to get them in Missouri or Kansas or on line, please pass on the information. They show up on Amazon, but not currently available.

My mom served me two of them with butter/sugar and warm milk. I still have my shredded wheat that way. I didn't know Muffets still existed?

We still get Muffets at the IGA and love them. The only difference now in them and Shredded Wheat is that they are in paper packages instead of the cardboard that used to separate layers. Still love them though.

There was a malted version. I contacted Quaker to see what happened to them, and was informed that they stopped producing them due to weak sales. A real pity. The regular ones are still wonderful!

I believe that there was also a malted version in the past. What ever happened to them?

I have had the jingle for the Muffets Shredded Wheat going on in my head for two days... don't know why: Is it long? (No, no!) Is it square? (No, no!) Is it Round? (Yes, yes!) Muffets Shredded Wheat! ... It was kind of Music Man chanted and only a bit of real singing at the end. Strange.
