I really don't like cereals for breakfast, Post Oat Flakes was the exception. Would love it if Post would bring them back.

My grandfather introduced me to Oat Flakes when I was five years old. A big bowl, fresh milk, and a drizzle of wild honey and I was hooked on the best cereal ever!

My all-time favorite. I've looked for them for years wondering where they'd gone. I'd buy them regularly if they came back.

Far and away the best cereal I ever consumed. Please bring them back so my children can enjoy them as much as I did.

I remember the original Post FORTIFIED Oat Flakes. Google that name, go to images, and you can see the original box design with a sketch of a farmer harvesting in the field at the bottom. This was a superior (by far) product, and my favorite cereal. Post did discontinue the product, but it seems they did bring it back in the 1990s before discontinuing it again. I didn't think the 90s version was as good as the original - which Post needs to bring back.

This was the most delicious cereal in history. Please, bring it back. It's not delicious because we say it is. We say it's delicious because it is!

I'm 14 again, and sitting at the breakfast table, enjoying each crunchy bite - getting energy for today's Little League game. Oat Flakes made us champs!

Oat Flakes were the best. I'm 68 and still cannot understand why Post stopped making them. They had such a wonderful, unique flavor unlike any other cereal - delicious! Please, please, please bring them back!
