Update to my comments a few months ago about Special K Protein Original. Kellogg's has changed the recipe and it no longer brings back that Oat Flakes memory. It became so much worse in my opinion I won't buy it again.

Keep hoping they will bring this cereal back. Just today I scanned the cereals and lamented that Post has not seen fit to bring back their oat flakes. By far my favorite. Like someone else commented, I seldom buy cereal anymore. I check periodically. This cereal gets nothing but favorable comments. Please bring Fortified Oats back.

This was NOT introduced in 1970. I have baseball cards that I cut from Fortified boxes in 1961-62. Best ever. I got my oldest son addicted to it in the '70's.

This was the only cereal I would pick out at the grocery store, and I ate it until they stopped making it. Cereal isn't worth eating anymore, so I don't buy it or eat it. I would get it if they brought it back just as it used to be.

Being a total cereal lover, Fortified Oat Flakes is probably my all-time favorite! I can still taste it's unique flavor. Have tried many 'oat' cereals since, and none come close. Of all the cereals that have gone away, this is the one that I would love to see return. (But only if they used the same recipe that they used in 1970!)

I have finally found a cereal that brings back the memory of Oat Flakes. Special K Protein Original. Does it taste like Oat Flakes? Who knows, it's been so long. But it sure reminds me of it!

I miss this cereal too. There are a lot of oat cereals out there, usually in cluster or O's shapes. Why no flakes? They make flake cereals from wheat, bran, rice, and corn. Why is it so hard to come up with and oat FLAKE cereal?

I loved this cereal and I wish they would make it again. I think probably one reason it didn't survive: It tended to get soggy extremely fast. But that is actually something I liked. I hate that 'stays crunchy in milk' became such a fad with so many cereals. Anyway, I loved the taste, and have never found anything that quite compares.

I absolutely loved this cereal and spent years trying to find an acceptable substitute. Sadly, I never did. Nothing comes even remotely close to the flavor, and I don't like cereal that stays so crisp in milk that it hurts the roof of your mouth. Please bring back Fortified Oat Flakes, even if only for a limited time. I promise you it will fly off the shelves!

The executive who axed production of Oat Flakes left Post Cereal and took a job with Lucas Films where he re-edited Star Wars: A New Hope. His next job was with Showtime during which time he was placed in charge of Dead Like Me. His next job was with Fox where he cancelled Firefly.

I can't remember liking any cereal more than these oat flakes - including cooked cereal. They were very satisfying and tasted really wholesome. Their slight sweetness combined with their subtle toasty flavor - presumably from the natural oils in the germ or bran - made them irresistable. I've often cynically speculated that the reason I craved them so much was because Post surreptitiously added glutamate to them to excite my postsynaptic neurons. Maybe they stopped making them because they couldn't achieve the same flavor profile without it... wow, what a conspiracy theory.

My favorite cereal as a kid - had the malty goodness of hot oatmeal but was refreshing with milk. Unlike almost any other cereal in taste. Post has the 2 best discontinued cereals of all time - this and Maple Crunch Shreddies, which I had up in Canada on vacation and brought back 5 boxes. Sadly, I eventually ate that and it too is no longer available.

I too tried Annie's Oat Flakes and added two spoons of Malted Milk. It's the closest I've came to Fortified Oat flakes since it left the market. But if Fortified Oat Flakes came back I would buy about 50 boxes to make sure I didn't run out.

Loved Post Fortified Oats Cereal in the 70's and 80's. I would totally buy it again but - alas - it is no more. Today I picked up a box of Annie's Organic Frosted Oat Flakes. Not the same as Post - but probably about as close as we're going to find. It's crunchy and looks similar, but it is sweeter and lacks the malty undertones of Fortified Oats. It is good - just not as good.

I would do almost anything to get this cereal back. Wonderful childhood and teen memory of wanting only this creel every morning. I never got tired of it. I love all kinds of oat cereals the most, but there is no comparing them to Fortified Oat Flakes. I wish Post would bring them back without tampering with recipe, maybe they could sell it to Quaker to produce it. It was so full of oat flavor, not necessarily flavored taste. I can still remember the taste now. It's a craving all my adult life for this cereal. So glad I found this website.

I need those Post fortified Oat Flakes back. It was the best cereal out! There isn't one person that I've talked to that ate that Post cereal, that doesn't want that product back!

Please! Please! Please! Post says it wasn't popular! It is Popular with people that ate that oat cereal All I have to do is ask someone that was alive when the cereal was available. They all say they miss that one! Now just Upgrade the box design but don't change the cereal recipe! You will have a hit on your hands again.

Now just get is out by October 2015 - Ok ? Please! If you get that out and maybe you can go in the candy business and bring back the famous WHIZ bar. too. Ha! Ha!

They aren't like oat flakes at all, but they are a good, unsweetened flake. I think it was the malt in oat flakes that made them so good.

Yes, ate this everyday! I contacted Post and they gave me the dear John speech. But I told them, "you try every combination under the sun, this with this, that with that, so why not try bringing back a retro cereal for all us boomers?!" They said something like their studies don't seem strong enough to warrant it. Yet, I have never known them to even try and sell them in test markets across the States! I also told them that there is no true, simple oat flake on the market, so why not try? There's wheat flakes, corn flakes in many different configurations, but with Honey Bunches of Oats, one can barely taste the oat! And aside from Trader Joe's Toasted Oat Flakes, which have honey and some other sweetener, there is nothing as a pure (Fortified too!) oat flake! Seems an ignorant business move!

Dear Post - None of your current cereals are as good as Fortified Oat Flakes were. The new 'improved' Post line up is lower in protein (8 gms per 55 gm serving) versus FOF's 6 gms per 28. As for all the fiber, I hate it. The high iron content in the new cereals are a good way to stroke out your older male customers... great thinking. The taste of FOF surpasses anything you now offer.

I've written to Post to bring it back but the response was basically that it didn't sell well enough. Maybe with websites like these, Post will realize that Oat Flakes may not be the most popular but the customers who like it would be loyal.

As I walk among the fall leaves, I dream of Fortified Oat Flakes cereal Post made when I grew up in the 70s. It was, like a leaf, lighter and thinner than Wheaties, and best of all just slightly sweet somewhat like the pre-sweetened organic wheat cereals I've tried in the 80s. But... NOTHING compares to it especially when it only needed a light dusting of sugar (gotta try that brown sugar suggestion!) to make it palatable to want to eat every breakfast-time and more fulfilling from the let-down sugared ones they have out there now. Come on, do we REALLY need a Reeses chocolate flavored cereal JUST to stuff more than one BRAND on a product as simple as CEREAL?!

I loved Fortified Oats as a kid in the 70's and kept eating it as an adult. By 1986, I could no longer find it in my local stores in California. My sister and I drove to the EXPO 86 World's Fair in Canada and I looked for it at independent markets I came across. I found a store in Seattle that had it. I bought every box they had in stock (about 30) and stuffed the car. Unfortunately, they also were no longer going to carry it and were selling their stock out.

The place we stayed at provided full breakfast but all I wanted to eat was my Fortified Oats. I demolished the first box but rationed the rest since I knew I would probably never find it again. So sad....

My friends and family agree! I have tried every cereal made that has oat flakes but NOTHING ELSE COMPARES, not even close... I don't want the little nut clusters or nothing else added, it was great just like it was. I am still waiting... come on Post... I won't live forever.

A real favorite of mine. When it was discontinued I bought a whole case. Now I wish it had been more! These days you see more niche products and more specialty supermarkets. Does everything have to be a home run in sales? And forget about that silly "psyllium added" stuff towards the end. It changed the flavor and texture and drove the last nail in the coffin. Just stick to what worked in the first place.

I thought that Post Oat Flakes had a really good taste. I have tried their 'Great Grains' product thinking it may be a decent replacement but it isn't that good so there's nothing from Post that I buy. I've pretty much given up on breakfast cereals now. They're either basically pure sugar or so bland (healthy?)that half the box gets thrown out do to lack of interest. Generally when a favorite food of mine disappears I don't buy anything else from that manufacturer because they have nothing as good. Same happened when Betty Crocker dropped the Date Mix. They make nothing else I want so they've become a "non-company" to me.

I drove a Post employee from the airport to the office. I asked about the return of PFO flakes. She said probably not. I can only speculate that this interest for it's return has been proposed, but for some reason, the cost of the process or ingredients today would not be profitable for Post. Always their bottom line first. Right?

Or is it based on calendar days? If so, when is the day rollover, because it will be at a different time based on my time zone and your time zone. For example if you are in the Eastern Time Zone and I am in the Pacific Time Zone and I vote at 10pm Tuesday and 8pm Wednesday, then I have unknowingly violated your obscure voting rules by voting twice "in the same day" in the Eastern Time zone. Also, if I vote and my son votes on the same day, is that a violation because we use the same router, thus will appear as the same IP address? It is not fair to penalize this cereal when your web site allows a person to unknowingly vote more than "once per day". The cereal is awesome but your voting procedure is lousy.

"I have always loved this cereal and can't understand why they stopped making it." Well... They stopped making it because it tasted like it was coated with wax. Horrible, the worst. I don't know how this finished above a great cereal like Sugar Pops. Totally ROTTEN.

Mr. Breakfast, I don't think that you should have penalized Fortified Oat Flakes for the rogue voter by penalizing it 100 votes. You took away the votes of people who had followed the rules. I would like to see the valid votes restored for FOF. Love this WEBSITE. Keep up the good work.

Comment submitted: 10/31/2010 (#3185)



By fact checker

Mr. Breakfast. You need to be careful about punishing a cereal by taking away votes when someone has voted too many times or it in one day. What if the person did not like Fortified Oat Flakes being 4th on the all time favorites list? The easiest way to knock it down is to vote numerous times for it and then let you punish it by taking away hundreds of votes. Job accomplished and you did not know their original intentions.

Mr. Breakfast, your web page states that Fortified Oat Flakes were introduced in 1970. They were introduced several years before that. I am not sure of the exact time, but my best guess would be around 1961 to 1962. I remember at the time how disappointed I was that Post changed the recipe for Post Oat Flakes and brought out the new Fortified Oat Flakes, which tasted inferior to the original recipe.

Yes, there is a cereal better than Post Fortified Oat Flakes. It's the original recipe for Post Oat Flakes. Post tinkered with the recipe to make the cereal more crispy in milk, and sacrificed a lot of delicious flavor in return. However, Fortified Oat Flakes comes in at number 2 on my all time list of favorites.

If you only knew how much I miss Post's Fortified Oat Flakes!!! Nothing can compare - nothing! I think it was that delicious taste of malt that made it so rich, I used to eat it right out of the box constantly. Please! What do we have to do to get it back NOW???

I miss it every time I cruise the cereal aisle. It was the BEST -- and I was a little kid in the 60's and 70's preferring OAT FLAKES over kiddie cereal. That wide appeal is something to consider.

This was a great cereal, one of the best. But here's a tip: If you haven't tasted Post Raisin Bran in a while, you're in for a surprise :). I'd bet anything Post is using a close variation on the FOF recipe for the bran flakes. Similar look, extremely close in taste and they even get soggy the same way!

This was a great tasting cereal. As a child, I added quite a bit of sugar to each bowl, but as I matured, I did not add any sugar because of the wonderful grain flavor not found in any other oat cereal.
