I miss Post Oat Flakes. The toasted oat flavor was out of this world! Why did they take them off the shelves?! I'll bet they'd be eligible for the WIC program and I know lots of little kids that would love them. Please bring them back!

Post Oat Flakes was easily the best dry cereal ever. I wonder what the real reason was for discontinuing this cereal.

I was told 15 yrs ago by a Post rep that there wasn't enough demand for the cereal so they couldn't bring it back. They have lesser cereal's on the market.

Best cereal ever. Perhaps Post could research a limited run similar to what some chewing gums have done. Test the waters for a relaunch.

I wish I knew the real reason they discontinued this cereal. There's no question it was the best tasting.

I agree with all of the above comments. Please bring them back even for a limited time to see if they sell well again. I'm sure they would.
