Best breakfast cereal ever is 1/2 Grape Nuts and 1/2 Grape Nuts Flakes, mixed. Indescribably delicious!

This is one of my favorite cereals. I understand the ingredients listed and it tastes great while providing fiber. I would like to try a gluten-friendly version replacing the wheat.

Love this cereal. A box lasts forever and it's so good on ice cream or over yogurt as well just with milk.

I love a bowl full with a sprinkle of sugar and a couple of handfuls of raisins!

I love them with hot milk! I just nuke them for 2 minutes.

I've always just LOVED Grape Nuts! Did anyone mention here that you can eat also them like oatmeal, warmed up with milk? Either way, I love them!

My 3rd fav milked cereal from childhood... and back then, as I recall, something of a real chew-challenge....I still enjoy a box or two a year, although they seem easier to chomp... boohoo.

Friends, have you ever found yourself rushing out in the morning because you weren't hungry, or didn't think you had the time? You can't do a man-sized job on a bird-sized breakfast, you know. Nutrition experts say that morning is the time when we should stoke up, and get at least 1/4 of our daily nourishment. Nutrition experts also recommend a whole grain cereal, and that's Grape Nuts and Grape Nuts Flakes. Both are Basic 7 foods, outstanding in both their whole grain nourishment and their zesty crispness. So, eat a good breakfast, do a better job, with those toasty-brown, malty rich, sweet-as-a-nut Grape Nuts or Grape Nuts Flakes, for extra swell eating!

Post added soy isolate to Grape Nuts in 2013 in a misguided marketing effort to capitalize on the "more protein" fad. Consumers must have thoroughly rejected this addition, as 2014 brought the soy-free formula back to the market!

Who eats this stuff? Maybe people feed it to their horse. Or their rotten kids as punishment. Awful bowl of pain.

I don't care for Grape Nuts, but I LOVE Grape Nut Flakes.

I bake with Grapenuts all the time. I just add a 1/2 cup to my muffin and coffee caker recipes and it makes the texture a lot better. Love it as a cereal too.

New recipe - not the same taste. Post recently added soy protein to the ingredients. I don't like the new taste. I'm going back to Cheerios.

I remember being introduced to Grape Nuts as a kid and finding them terrible plain. Thankfully, my parents showed me how awesome they are when you pour the milk in and microwave a bowl of Grape Nuts, then top it with fruit or honey.

That was fifteen years ago now, and I actually prefer eating Grape Nuts cold now. Still, gotta have that honey, fruit, or even cinnamon (well, it's fine without those of course). Overall it's my favorite cereal ever - and it's great to mix with Honey Nut Cheerios or Honey Bunches of Oats!

Grape Nuts, huh? Ought to have called it "Gravel" cereal, because that what it tasted like when you ate them with milk... Crunchy Gravel. (LOL) Other than that, it was pretty good stuff when served as a topping on yogurt, pudding or ice cream.

Been loving those crunchy things since I was a little kid foraging around in my grandma's pantry for illicit snacks. Back then the ads said "They fill you up, not out". In the early 70s, Ewell Gibbons pitched them, saying that the reminded him of wild hickory nuts. From my teens to early twenties, they became a staple food. Then, Post began the "Are you good enough for Grape Nuts" campaign. I found that so ridiculous that I quit eating them until a couple of months ago. I've been really enjoying them.

I've been eating Grape-Nuts for a long time, since I was a teenager fifty years ago. I use a small bowl, Splenda and unsweetened soy milk when I want a snack that is filling but isn't too sweet. It does have a mild laxative effect but I think that's a good thing.

I remember trying these in the 90s and I hated them. I thought they tasted like sticks and were as hard as rocks! Then I tried them again about 2 years ago and nothing has changed. When I'm ready to have a bald mouth, I'll pick up a box. Until then, these will continue to sit on the shelf at the store. (myemptycanvasreviews.blogspot.com)

I was remembering when the box used to say, "May be habit forming" on it as did anything that was considered a laxative. I've never really liked it as a cereal, but love it mixed into yogurt and on ice cream. It's funny now to see that there used to be claims that it cured "the drink". Wow, C.W. Post was a huckster. I am grateful for both the Danny Thomas Show and the Andy Griffith Show which came about as a result of Post Cereals. Especially for Danny Thomas in that he created the St. Jude's Hospital.

Worst cereal ever. It's too crunchy on minute and then to soggy the next. I'll never understand how it's so popular.

Always liked Grape Nuts. Sometimes can be a little hard to swallow without something to drink (besides the milk they're in) them with. I remember in the old "Post Tens" packages (ten little boxes of individual cereal sold in one package), there was only one box of Grape Nuts and usually two of almost everything else.

I can remember my brother and I flinging these across the kitchen off our spoons the one (and only) time my Momma ever bought them... YUCKY!

Grape-Nuts! one of the best. It's the one cereal I found in Grandmas cupboard that I actually liked to eat. Hot or cold they were good. Grampa on the other hand wouldn't eat'em called'em buckshot! or bowl-gravel! What can I say he was eating All-Brand or Shredded wheat, both had the fiber and the taste of the box they came in.

An old but great standby that I have been eating for over 60 years. A very strong tasty flavor but its consistency does not agree with everyone.

I agree with Mix Master. Glad to see I'm not the only one that mixes Sugar Smacks (original name) with Grape Nuts. That way I can tell myself I'm eating something healthy!
