Team Flakes
From: Nabisco
Introduced in 1963


The first adult cereal with flakes made from four grains: corn, rice, oats and wheat.

It's suspected the cereal got its name because the four grains "team" together to make a winning flakes.

A magazine ad for Team Flakes described it like this:

There are people who have never tasted TEAM Flakes by Nabisco. A pity. They're so good... with rice, corn, oats and wheat teamed up in every flake. They even have bubbles baked in to keep them extra crisp.

Another ad introducing the cereal in 1963 described it like this:

The most spirited new breakfast in years!

New spirited taste! For the first time, 4 grains teamed up in one flakes... rice, corn, oats, wheat! Never before such taste in a flake! New crisp spirit!! You just can't dampen it with milk, because Team's baked with tiny bubbles for crispness. The spirited flakes with the spirited taste from Nabisco!


Company Description: Nabisco's history dates back to 1898 when three bakery conglomerates merged to form The National Biscuit Company - comprised of 114 bakeries. In 1901, The National Biscuit Company introduced the Nabisco Cracker. It wasn't until 1971 that the company changed it's name to Nabisco... Read on and see all cereals from Nabisco

Team Flakes were the best dry cereal that I've eaten! My twin brother Patrick and I both agree that we would love to have at least one more bowl of Team Flakes before we die. Please bring them back!

I absolutely loved Team Flakes. They were always crunchy and had the best taste of any flake cereal then or now.

The best cereal period, bar none! Miss them everyday. Makes me sad when I go down the cereal aisle at the store. Would pay 10 bucks a box.

They were our favorite cereal. Any chance of them making a comeback?

An excellent classic combination of grains that should span generations. I wish Nabisco would bring these back.

Team Flakes was better then all other flake cereals combined. Why would they stop making it and sell it off? Shame on them.
