Terrific shredded wheat cereal, nutritionally and a pleasure to eat - crisper than other shredded wheat cereals and 'roasted' just right!

We have loved Muffets since childhood but haven't been able to find them in Sobeys or No Frills in Brighton since November. Does anyone know where they are sold?

I am so happy to find out how to eat these things. I bought them for the ingredients and then had mush in my bowl! So after reading your comments (thank you), I had a lovely breakfast... added blueberries and apple with the milk!

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.
