I bought a box of Wheaties at Hy-Vee East in Norfolk, Nebraska. It was good.

I am now in crisis! Although I have eaten Wheaties for 80 plus years and can't imagine living without them, it now appears I may have outlived the Battle Creek Wheaties machine. IT HAS BEEN OVER 3 WEEKS SINCE ANY SUPERMARKET IN SOUTHERN MAINE HAS HAD ANY WHEATIES IN STOCK. What's up? I will gladly return the 3 lovely sleeves of Wheaties golf balls I received for a few boxes of the product. Please don't tell me it is the end of the Wheaties era.

They should make a maple coated version of Wheaties for those people that still crave Buc-Wheats.

How is this cereal still available and Post canceled production on Fortified Oat Flakes? Poor decision on Post's part. Never cared for Wheaties.

This cereal now has the texture and flavor of no brand generic cereal. Upon opening the bag, I sniffed for the Wheaties aroma and found none, then the disappointment of the taste told me I was eating something less than expected.

Tastes different than it did when I was a kid - not as heavy, missing some of the old malt flavor. Still better than most - if you can still find it among a sea of sweetened empty-calorie offerings.

I grew up on Wheaties and thought they were amazing. Then someone at General Mills thought they should fix what wasn't broke and they introduced the "New Wheaties". Ugh! They now taste just like the rest of field. Oh how I long for the original cereal.

Wheaties used to taste SO good. Somewhere since the 1970's, not sure when, they changed the recipe or something and today I get mad at myself every time I forget how bad they suck and accidentally buy another box. I called up General Mills to ask them how/why could they possibly ruin a perfect cereal. Today's Wheaties are not even comparable to the original Wheaties I remember. I would eat bowl after bowl of the old Wheaties. The new Wheaties reminds me of generic wannabe cereals. Yuk. Throw it away. It is worthless and it makes me think of shorting General Mills stock actually now that I think of it. There is no substitute for absolutely having the best product. They did before, but DEFINITELY do not now. Hard to believe actually.

Where can I find out more about the tin auto emblems that were offered from Wheaties and what were the 31 auto companies that you could collect? Are there any pictures of each emblem and the promotional advertising for these? Appreciate any info you could supply me. - BENNETT@CONRADS

Loved Wheaties when I was young and it remains one of my favorites today.

I think Wheaties and Total are the same cereal.

About 20 years ago, I found that GENERAL MILLS was one of the sponsors for THE original MICKEY MOUSE CLUB in it's original network days in the 1950's. I also found that there used to be a MICKEY MOUSE CLUB cut out record on the front of each box. RIP Annette.

Good but not great. It is far less interesting than Nabisco Team Flakes, which are now out of production. I would say that Wheaties are bland unless you add a bit of sugar... or fruit.

Can anyone tell me if General Mills changed the Wheaties recipe in the mid 1980s?

I love those cereal boxes. Wheaties is the best. It made breakfast fun. I loved reading about all of the greatest athletes who ever played.

With all of the great athletes who have appeared on the Wheaties box, what I easily recall is from the mid-1950's when the front of the box had a small state metal license plate that you got when you bought it. Later, the licenses were from other countries. When people started pulling the license plate off of the box without purchasing the product, the license was placed inside. I think the first license tag that I got was from Maryland (a black tag with gold lettering). The first country that I got was Turkey although it was spelled out using the Turkish alphabet.

Hi - Does anyone have information about a circa 1934 Wheaties cereal premium for an American Flyer yellow toy boxcar? Any information would be much appreciated. Thank you. Jan

The best thing I remember so much was Wheaties Bran with Raisin Flakes. That was such a good cereal. That happened in 1962 - 2 years later, it was changed to General Mills Bran and Raisin Flakes.

I just acquired a slumber bag/sleeping bag/comforter with this Wheaties tennis player box as the artwork on it. Is he a particular tennis player and what year do you think it was made? I am thinking 1960's.

What a great collection! I just found one of these emblems for Plymouth on e-bay and received it this week. Wish I could find more for sale. Brings back memories collecting these from Wheaties when I was 6-8 years old.

You should talk how this cereal can help you perform better at your sport. It will get more attention.

The 15.6 oz. cereal weight in the same size box as the former 18 oz. weight is decitful and cheating the consumer. You folks should be ashamed of yourselves! - Neil A. Austin (nelo2@verizon.net)
