Introduced in 1959


This cereal was promoted with the lines: "Feel your oats" and "Tastes like oatmeal cookies." A 1959 newspaper ad called it "the first flakes made with oats (most nutritious grain of all!)."

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

This cereal was the best ever. It wouldn't stay crunchy for long but that was never a problem. It seems like we could bring it back if we organized. I have been hearing the wail of boomers crying out for oat flakes for a long time. If Post can't do it maybe we can. If you are interested write to me at oceanobello(at)gmail(dot)com and put 'oat flakes revival' in the subject line.

I'm glad to see that I'm not the only one who liked this cereal enough to actually search for it after all these years. I've looked for alternatives since... nada. I've even written to Post about resurrecting it. Again... nada, not even a response from them.

Seriously, Oat Flakes are the only cereal I would buy. All the rest are unhealthy.

I began eating Oat Flakes at age 5. It's my favorite all time cereal. I came across 3 boxes at a dented can place in Apple Valley California in 1980. Sent my mom a box of it. She came across a box of it 6 months later and ate the whole box herself! I'll never forgive her! LOL! Bring it back... PLEASE!!

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.
