Post Toasties Corn Flakes
From: Post
Introduced in 1908

  • Post Toasties were originally called Elijah's Manna when the cereal was created in 1904. Religious groups balked at the use of Elijah as a cereal mascot. The backlash cut into sales of the cereal and the name was changed to Post Toasties in 1908.

In 1935, Post Toasties became he first cereal to license the image of Micky Mouse for its cereal boxes and advertisements.

This cereal is also listed in our database as simply Post Toasties. Often times, "Corn Flakes" was incredibly small on the box in relationship to the word "Toasties". Other times, "Corn Flakes" took top or equal billing.

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

Now that no one is buying Kellogg's Cereals. PLEASE bring back POST TOASTIES. They are the best.

I have to admit that I pick the Post Toasties flakes out of Honey Bunches of Oats also. Please bring this cereal back.

Post Toasties Corn Flakes are the best cereal and there is no other cereal on the market that is a substitute. Since we must resort to picking them out of the Honey Bunches of O's, Post must still be making the Post Toasties to add to that cereal. Please Post, re-look at making a whole box of Post Toasties. I can guarantee you will sell more than before as many of us will buy them by the case so we don't run out in case the production would stop again.

Best cereal ever! Kellogg's flakes SUCK! Please bring it back. I'm resorting to picking the flakes out of Honey Bunches of Oats to get a bowl of Toasties. Give me a manufacturing facility and the recipe and I will make it for all their loyal customers.

While I didn't eat Toasties often, when I got a taste for them, nothing else would suffice. Kellogg's Corn Flakes don't even come close. Toasties flakes were thicker and thus stood up better in milk. Even when milk-saturated, Toasties had a certain body to them, where Kellogg's just turn to mush. I've had a taste for Toasties lately and am disappointed that they are no longer available.

Bring this cereal back. It has a unique flavor and texture Kellogg's cannot duplicate. I look for it in every store.

An almost exact corn flakes cereal to replace the Post Toasties is sold by the Pick and Save chain under the Roundy's trade mark. I live in Wisconsin. Hope this helps you.
