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, too, ate this as a kid and was just searching for it when I came across this site. It was by far the best cereal I had, ever! As I remember, it came in relatively small boxes so, my mom didn't always get it since it disappeared from the pantry as soon as she brought it home.

I am another person who ate this cereal as a child and through my young adulthood. I suddenly remembered it today (at age 60). I thought it probably was no longer produced; sadly, I see that's a fact. I, too, would buy this buy the case. Seriously. I don't eat 'cold' cereal much but if this were produced again I would eat it daily. PLEASE BRING IT BACK, even for a limited time!

I ate this cereal every single morning for at least 2 years when I was a kid. I can still taste it in my mind. Best. Cereal. Ever.

It was interesting to find this site. Me and a co-worker were talking about our favorite cereal as kids... Oat Flakes. Never have eaten anything as good. Wish they would bring it back.

In the days of sugar filling at least half the cereal boxes these days, this was my FAVORITE cereal as a kid!! Just loved it and I too can still remember the taste. Oh Post for us adults, please bring this one back.

Please do anything you can to convince Post that this health conscious cereal must be on the shelves again. It was like eating a crunchy bowl of oatmeal. I often wonder what the reason was behind the decision to discontinue this cereal about 30 years ago.
