Started in about 1950... 2 biscuits for breakfast with hot water poured over them and then drained water before milk and sugar was added.

Hi - Was shredded Wheat ever produced or manufactured in Peru, South America? Thank you.

Kroger is making a knock-off brand of shredded wheat that tastes like the old Nabisco product. You probably live near a grocery store owned by Kroger (they use many names besides Kroger - Google to see all the grocery stores owned by Kroger). Here in the Seattle area, for example, Fred Meyer and QFC are owned by Kroger.

Very disappointed that we can no longer buy Nabisco shredded wheat. Bought and loved it for many years. Post isn't half as good. Really makes me mad when a brand is totally wiped out.

Where has Nabisco Shredded Wheat gone? We have four grocery stores in our small town, population 30,000 and no one has Nabisco Shredded Wheat, only POST brand available. Why?

This has been my favorite cereal for years and now I can't find it in the stores. The substitutes are terrible. Some guy at Kraft has made a big sales blunder.

Just bought Spoon Size Shredded Wheat by Post. Taste and consistency have changed. Where is the Nabisco brand? The Post brand does not absorb any milk. The recipe has changed. It's just not good.

Post Shredded Wheat is bland! The original Nabisco is the best! The new Post crunchy pecan is not nearly as good as the original.

I am so depressed - no more Nabisco Shredded Wheat in the yellow box. Why? My favorite evening snack since I was A kid. Halve the large biscuit, lather it with butter and put it under the oven broiler in a little pool of milk until it is hot and toasty. Life will never be the same. If I had only known I would have scavenged every store I could find and bought all that were left. How could they do this to me?!

This was the best shredded wheat. Unfrosted Mini Wheats was close, but not nearly as good. I don't know what their secret was but Nabisco was the best.

When did Nabisco change its recipe for shredded wheat and become Post. Nabisco was the best. Post just isn't up to par with the Nabisco, especially if you want to eat it hot. Post just turns to mush.

We always ate Shredded Wheat in the 60's by running the biscuit under the hot water faucet, draining it and adding milk with sprinkled sugar on top. Perhaps the Canadian way.

I have eaten it for 60 years. I loved the cardboard inserts separating the biscuits. One could cut and fold the printed two-dimensional plans of town buildings i.e. city hall, school to make three-dimensional buildings, collecting them to make a village. Are there copies of these? It was in the late 40's.

I stopped eating Shredded Wheat years ago. I had terrible swelling in my feet and hands. Now I'm wondering if it was the BHT sometimes added in the packaging of cereals.

I'd like to find the Sweet-Sour Meatballs recipe that was on the Nabisco shredded wheat package -- I think maybe in the seventies. It had shredded wheat in the meatballs and onions, green peppers, and pineapple in the Sweet-sour sauce.

I have been eating Shredded Wheat for 67 years. My grandmother taught me to fry it like French toast. 1 egg, 1/2 cup milk, 1 teaspoon sugar and a pinch of salt; beat together; roll biscuit in batter and fry in a little butter. Serve with maple syrup.

Are we stuck with Post brand? I just bought a box of Post brand and it has 18 biscuits - the size of 9 Nabisco ones. It has too much air in the biscuits. Where can I find something more like Nabisco which was more flavorful... the best kind!

Until recently within the last 3 weeks I have been buying Shredded Wheat. I went into my local grocery store and they were out, so I was not alarmed figured I'd just missed their truck. I went to Wal-Mart yesterday in Fl. and the shelves are bare. Why? I've looked and I cannot find a recall, but not sure. What has happened... anyone else know?

Woah... Just cruised through the photos and saw the old Shredded Wheat 3-D Promotion and holy smackers did that shoot me back to my childhood. I remember those little cardboard glasses and the 3D pictures. That was so totally awesome as a kid.

A staple cereal that I associate with my grandmother. Pour boiling water over a biscuit (or two) in a bowl, let it sit a minute, then press the water out with another bowl. Add a sprinkling of brown sugar and milk; easy hot cereal and quite tasty. I haven't tried the new Post version of this cereal; I am reluctant to do so and find out they have mucked it up. I'd rather keep the warm comfy memory of eating this warm cereal on cold snowy Montreal mornings untarnished.

My mother would pour some hot water over it before I would leave for school and would take another bowl to set over top to drain. That way, I would have some hot cereal to eat and I still do it today seventy years later. But I use Post brand the same way.

I have a mini ham loaf recipe that calls for 2 Shredded Wheat biscuits soaked in milk. I have a box of minis and need to know the ratio. I'm guessing a handful is not enough! I do prefer biscuits over minis, but sent husband to the store!

I can't find Nabisco Shredded Wheat any more and miss it. Where can I find it? My Grandmother made fried Shredded Wheat biscuits for my Dad and he also made for us kids and I made for my kids. We love it this way too. I can't find the regular large biscuits at all and I don't care for Post Mini Wheats - too small and hard in texture not like Nabisco that was light and airy with cold milk and a little sweetener - great!! Thanks! - Pam

I want Nabisco back! Their shredded wheat was our Sunday morning treat through the post WWII years and long after. In the 1970s, they printed the most delicious cheesecake recipe on the box that I have ever tasted. I lost it in a move and now it seems there is no way to obtain a copy. "Backwards, turn backwards oh time in your flight, and bring back Nabisco if just for tonight... " Why is it the good ones often go under and the company that takes over tries to dupe us into thinking the product hasn't changed? ... when you know darned well they make double the amount with half the ingredients plus maybe a filler(?) and sell it for twice as much - and it tastes like cardboard no matter what they do!

For those who can't find their favorite Large Shredded Wheat biscuits. I buy it a Publix Grocery store in McDonough, Ga. 30252. Look for it in the big yellow box. It is my understanding( after much research) Nabisco was bought out by Post cereals. Hope this helps some of you. I live in Mcdonough if I can help you.

I searched for this product on the web because I don't see it in stores anymore. Remember as a child how we would spread butter on one side, lay it butter side up in a bowl, sprinkle sugar on top, then pour on warm milk. Once it was soft it was heaven.

I thought I would tell you about shredded wheat. When I was aged 5 (1937) I frequently stayed with my grandmother. She always gave me one shredded wheat for breakfast and it was served in a blue and white dish, oblong in shape and just shaped to take one shredded wheat. I loved it. Wish I had a dish like that now. Barbara Gibson - Bicester OX26 4EZ.

My Mother worked for people who were connected with the Nabisco Shredded Wheat co. in Niagara Falls, N.Y. They lived in a large stone house adjacent to the factory. She showed it to me many times. I used to know their names. They gave big parties and my mother baked and cooked for them. That was in the 1930's. Does anyone know of the family and what has come of the house? My Mother married and had 11 children so it was a good experience for her.

My wife and I always loved them. Hot,cold,with fruit,anyway they were always GREAT! Seems like we haven't been able to find them anywhere for about a year now. Nothing but the small bite size that's sugar coated. You know when you srink a sredded wheat full size to a spoon size you loose so much taste and with all the fat kids running around eating only with their fingers what do people know about good taste and what is good for them to be eating these days.
