I have enjoyed Muffets for decades. We have been living in the US for about 20 years and have especially enjoyed Muffets as a taste from home (southern Alberta). So very sad to hear they are gone from the market. I hope we can persuade Quaker to bring them back.

Why was it not advertised more as a nutritious cereal? Surely there was room with all the sweetened bars! I found it in the US under the name Barbara's in the Health Food section! Please bring it back!

I love Muffets Shredded Wheat Cereal. Just can't believe they were discontinued. Please Please make them again. They don't have all that sugar that most other cereals do. Just plain goodness. From Jewel in Canada.

I'm 60 and I ate Muffets since I sat over the forced air outlet and read the Saturday comics! My mom never let us have the sugary cereals so Muffets were very common. I got some at Real Canadian about 4 months ago but nothing since. Does Quaker just not make them any more? That would be a shame for many.

Since Muffets disappeared from the stores, I have found a few boxes in small independent general stores in rural Manitoba. I have stockpiled 8 boxes! Shredded Wheat is just not the same. Please bring Muffets back to the big chain grocery stores. PLEASE!

Ate these as a child... my favorite. My Mom would boil water and pour it on these round morsels and then drain them right away... then pour whole milk on them and top them with sugar. We would add fresh raspberries from our patch when they were in season. They are much more compact than the rectangle ones.

Love them, miss them greatly. As a child we would butter them then cinnamon and sugar. Probably the precursor to Mini Wheats but much better. Would love to be able to find them in Florida.

My favorite all time cereal, great nutrition, 'toasted perfectly,' stays crisp in milk, delicious. Hard to find now, so I buy a whole case when it is available. Quaker and Barbara's shredded wheat are the same thing I assume.

After opening package, found that box was at least an inch (2.5cm) short of filled. I consider that a deception and a form of theft! Cardboard and shipping space must be less costly to Quaker than wheat. Quaker may plead settling of product after packaging. Total rot! Wont be buying more, this after 70 years of patronage! - David.

I loved eating Muffets, until I read the following on the side of the box: "BHT has been added to the waxed paper envelope to help maintain freshness." Soon as I read that the food was in contact with BHT, I threw the package of the cereal in the garbage.

Ate these as a kid. Always liked them better than the rectangular SW biscuits and thought they held together better. We buttered these generously, warmed them in the oven, than poured hot milk over. Still follow this recipe with Shredded Wheat rectangular biscuits to this day. Yum. Wish I could buy Muffets. Have to visit Canada I guess.

I grew up on Muffets. They are much better then the competition! We would put the hot water on them then squeeze it out and add milk and sugar. 1950's version of a hot breakfast! Wish we could still get them in the US!!

Wow, sends me back a few decades. Had these a lot when I was a kid; we'd pour boiling water on a couple in a bowl, let them soften up a bit - not TOO much or they'd get all mushy! - then squeeze the water out by putting another bowl on top. Yes, we were handling boiling water as kids. I can actually "memory smell" them right now - how weird! Anyway, add some milk and brown sugar and eat away.

Rather than lamenting on the past, if this cereal means that much to all of you, why not send Pepsico/Quaker a message telling them how much you miss it and want to know when you can expect it to again start the US distribution of your favorite "Muffets?" Preaching to the choir will get you nowhere. Contacting the maker with enough mail may have a very positive result for American Muffet eaters. I sent mine! And while were on the subject of cereal... What happened to Kellogg's "Concentrate Cereal?" I could eat an entire box in one sitting. Well, perhaps two sittings.

We still get Muffets at the IGA and love them. The only difference now in them and Shredded Wheat is that they are in paper packages instead of the cardboard that used to separate layers. Still love them though.

I have had the jingle for the Muffets Shredded Wheat going on in my head for two days... don't know why: Is it long? (No, no!) Is it square? (No, no!) Is it Round? (Yes, yes!) Muffets Shredded Wheat! ... It was kind of Music Man chanted and only a bit of real singing at the end. Strange.

I bought a box of these today at my local Independent in North Bay Ont, it was like meeting an old friend. I thought they had quit making these years ago. Sounds like the stocking of Muffets is hit and miss with the grocery stores.

You can buy something similar at Whole Foods in the US. It's an all natural product called Barbara's Shredded Wheat. Same shape, same taste. Introduced my 9 year old daughter to them and she loves them.

This cereal reminds me of when i was a kid and my mom would feed us this in the morning after we went for a walk. It was usually served heated with milk because it was in the winter. It was like a warm hug and tasted so good! I have turned my husband onto them and we love them and eat them sometimes for supper if i don't feel like cooking... ;)

Muffets was my favorite breakfast food. I would like to know if it is still made? If so where is it available? I used to get it at a flea market here in California until late 1980 - early 90s, or on trips back to the Detroit area. Any information you can supply me would be appreciated.

Breakfast has really gotten boring. Every morning I open the fridge and stare at the eggs and ponder? - boiled? - scrambled? - fried? - poached? And i try to get my head around - waffles? - pancakes? - brown toast? - white toast? (My neighbor across the street says he does the same thing some mornings and usually settles for 6 eggs in the blender with a half bottle of Tabasco and goes back to bed and starts his life over a couple of days later)

Then I open the pantry and study the row of Quaker oats - original, regular and variety pack that we love and trust, and a variety of cold cereals that have become about as inspiring as a bowl of purple cabbage.

Then one morning I was about to close the pantry door and go jog or something when suddenly a voice whispered in my ear (my right ear i think) and said "Grab that box of Quaker 100% Natural Whole Wheat Muffets, Homer, I got an idea".

I replied, "My name is not Homer, and you'll have to whisper a little louder, I got this hearing problem -- who is this"?

"Never mind Ho -- uh -- whatever -- go get a cereal bowl and place a muffet precisely in the center --- gently now - gently! -- that's it -- now squeeze a 4 second squirt of honey on the top and let it ooze down into the muffet for a minute".

"You sure you know what you're doing Voice"? I said.

"Shut up dude and pay attention".

"Ok, ok! what next"?

"Well I notice you have some fresh blueberries in your fridge and I want you to pick out 14 firm dry ones and encircle the golden brown biscuit with them" --- ah yes, that's it, good - good. Now grab one of those bananas and mash about a 2 inch length of it and spread it over the honey".

I followed "it's" instruction, then mustered up a look of incredible awe and said, "By golly Voice, that looks good! -- is that it? -- That''s your idea"?

A blast of hot, wet, air attacked my inner ear, in the form of an impatient snort, and the voice said, "Not quite Bubba -- go get some milk and pour it into the bowl until it comes half way up the muffet - then slap it into the microwave for 34 seconds --- no more".

The look of incredible awe slid off my face and i blurted, "You're kidding! -- and my name is not ---- oh never mind". There was a pregnant pause then an irritated voice said, "Just DO it Francis"!!

34 seconds later the voice said, "You got any of that whipped-cream-in-a-can"? I didn't answer but opened the fridge and brought out a large bottle of catsup and said, "is red alright"? -- and I braced myself for another super-saturated-snort.

Good grief!! Some voices have absolutely no sense of humor.
I exchanged the catsup for the whipped-cream and "it" ordered me to squirt a fluffy topping on the muffet and drop three blueberries into it.

"Oh and while you are at it" said the voice,"you might as well crown the whole shebang with one of those strawberries sitting there --- what are you, a fruit freak Freddie"?

I stood back and studied it for a moment and said "Voice, that really does look delicious ---- and pretty as all get out".

"Well don't just stand there admiring it" the Voice urged. "sit down boy, eat up, it's best before the milk soaks it's way to the top of the muffet".

I obeyed -- then with unfeigned enthusiasm exclaimed, "Oh Voice, this is incredible! - It's wonderful! - it's heavenly! -- and - and --- really tasty. How can I ever thank you? You have brought new life and excitement to all my AM's of the future. I love it.

Then with a final muffled whisper, that sounded exhausted, the Voice said, "Aw, don't mention it --- you did good Homer, you did good".

"Now how the heck do I get out of your ear? I'm up to my tonsils in wax".

You can't find Muffets in your grocery store? We just bought another box a couple of days ago. We live in Alberta Canada and buy it all the time. In fact, I just emailed a breakfast recipe for Muffets a few days ago. I don't know if it got through. I've never done such a thing before. I think people would love it.
