My folks would buy this by the case because I ate a box for breakfast every morning. And I was only about 110 lbs soaking wet! But this was my all time favorite cereal! I don't eat cereal anymore. I've tried all kinds of others (and I loved cereal as a kid) but after I found this, I never ate anything else. And once I couldn't find this anymore, I stopped eating breakfast (occasional eggs, hash browns, sausage patties, and toast now but not very often). I still check the cereal aisles every time I'm in the stores hoping to find some kind of just plain oat flakes.

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!

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.
