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

I have found at long last a reasonable substitute for TEAM flakes. Not the same thing unfortunately but I can't put a gun to Nabisco's head and make demands. Try Post Cherry Almond Crunch Cereal. I found a huge box (28oz)at Costco for 7 or 8 dollars.

It is the only food I ever longed for. By far the best breakfast cereal ever made. It could easily come back and work on many levels with toys, consumers, etc. Please Nabisco, bring Team Flakes back before I die.

There is NOTHING out there in the cereal aisle even close to the great taste of this cereal. I am still hoping that there will be a comeback for it because it wouldn't be long to get it to the top of the cereal charts. SO much better than any flake out there BAR NONE.

Was remembering Team Flakes today... Oct. 30th, 2015. Yes it was my favorite. Today, I always buy Cheerios & old fashioned large flake oatmeal. It would be great to add Team Flakes again because it had a special taste. Just googled it hoping to buy it online again in the USA and ship to Windsor Ontario Canada.
