Here’s Post’s reply to my to my question about what has happened to the availability of Grape Nuts Flakes:
“The item you are looking for may be out of stock for 2-5 months due to
adjustments in our production schedules to ensure the items in highest
demand are available. We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause
you. We will continue to work to get all of our items back on shelves as soon
as possible.”
So the good news is GNF has not been discontinued. It seems like the huge demand for cereal caused by the pandemic has led Post to concentrate
production on the brands they sell the most. GNF just seems to be another
victim of COVID-19. Let’s hope it recovers!

On a recent hunt for Grape Nuts Flakes, I was able to find 2 boxes for $5.75 each. The store manager noticed that the expiration date on them was April 2020, so he offered me $10 off the cost of the 2 boxes. He didn't know when (or IF) he would ever get another delivery of this cereal, so I may have finished the last 2 boxes of this cereal on earth. Lucky me....the quality of the cereal was perfect even though it had passed its expiration date.

It is sad that you can't find Grape Nuts Flakes in the super market where I shop. It is a favorite cereal and wish it was available someplace in La Mesa, CA. Used to find it at Walmart but not recently.

Sadly, Grape-Nuts Flakes are VERY hard to find. I called the 1-800 number and the folks at Post say it's not being discontinued (as of June 2019). However, the lions share of my local grocery stores no longer carry GNF. If I see it anywhere for under $4/box, I'm gonna snatch em all. LOVE this cereal.

What is the matter with a company that ignores the wishes of their customers? The Post people ARE the ones at fault. I checked with a manager of our local Wegman's store here in VA and he says that he hasn't been able to get them any more. Ditto for Walmart.

PDL, try local grocery stores in your area. They seem to carry Grape Nut Flakes more often than the national chains. If not just ask the store if they can order it. Good luck.

Grape Nuts Flakes were always my favorite. They seemed to have disappeared off of the store shelves in my area(Arvada Colorado). Anyone have any information about that? Thanks.

Grape Nuts Flakes is one of my top 3 favorite cereals of all time! It's simple and more nutrition-oriented than most but the flavor defies the ingredients. Even though it has a relatively low sugar content, I have never needed to add any sweetener. Apparently the way it's made produces a unique sweetening effect that is also present (but not as pronounced) in regular Grape Nuts. I have eaten this cereal for 30+ years and never tire of it - though I do switch around what I eat for variety.

I was sad to see Walmart stop carrying Grape Nuts Flakes last year (2017) here in Oregon. The only place I've been able to buy it lately is WinCo. Walmart, please bring this cereal back! And please Post, never discontinue this product! It is one of the few great tasting, healthier cereals of all time! David L.

It appears the folks reviewing GRAPE-NUTS FLAKES are all fans who are hurting from the decline in availability. Not all of their hurt is caused by Post. GNFs are still available in some stores, scattered around the country and on various sites on the Net but every where I see them they are price inflated. While most cereals are priced in the $3.00 to $4.00 range in stores GNFs are always $5.00 or more. On the internet sites the price seems to run between $5.00 and $7.50 per box, plus shipping. Most sites want you to buy multiple boxes to further increase their sales volume. Pursuit of the old profit bug-a-boo I guess. Gross more dollars and to heck with other peoples problems.

Of course supply and (especially) demand could contributed to some availability problems. But thanks to grandma and grandpa AND to mom and pop, kids of this and the previous generation has been liberally inundated with all of the readily available sweet and sugar covered things one sees in stores these days. How can they know any better? If kids learn to select foods by sweetness instead flavor how can they be expected to appreciate the delicate and nutty smoothness of GRAPE-NUTS FLAKES? So that again goes to reduced demand and there-fore reduced profits, hence reduced supply. Vicious circle, huh?

I, too, regret the loss of the old style larger flakes. They kept the crunch to the bottom of the bowl.

Wal-Mart has been discontinuing a lot of items lately. They do this every so often. Usually it backfires and they start carrying the items again. I know that I will be going to Wal-Mart less. They also discontinued my JFG Coffee.

Wal-Mart has decided to NOT carry Grape-Nuts Flakes. I contacted Post Cereals and got this straight from their representative. Now that I can't find them there I have no idea where to buy them which is a shame. I hope Post won't stop making them!

I've always loved Grape-Nut Flakes, but the actual flakes seem to be getting smaller and smaller. Liked them better when they were the size of most bran and corn flakes. The small flakes turn to mush not long after they're drenched in milk.

GNF was the # 1 most unpopular cereal with kids in the mid-50s. Elderly people loved it for its health values but kids had to have it jack-hammered down their throats, using Hop-A-Long Cassidy, Fords, Mercurys, trucks, appliances, and other assorted toys to get them to eat the horrid stuff!

I remember (as shown in the photos of the old boxes) when Hopalong Cassidy was on the boxes of Grape-Nut Flakes. That's, of course, when his radio and television shows were sponsored by that product. Just a few years later, it was Roy Rogers on the boxes when his Sunday TV show was sponsored by Grape-Nut Flakes.

You can find grape-nuts at Big Y in Enfield Ct. I hope they will continue to carry my favorite cereal Big Y is the only store that does, I don't understand why. There is one problem with the new size box the new box is 18OZ from 14OZ and it is way to tall for a normal lazy susan or cabinet, they should have made the box wider instead.

I love this cereal (Grapenut Flakes) and there is only one store here in CT where I can buy it. However the last two boxes l had purchased must be lacking a little quality control. They were both loaded with burnt flakes. I never saw this before and was wondering if they might be experiencing some problem which I assume will eliminate these little black flakes. Thanks for a great cereal.
