Fortified Oat Flakes Commercial


Early 1970's Fortified Oat Flakes Commercial: The Englander Family (A Reenactment)

A family sites down to the breakfast table with a selection of breakfast cereals. Among the cereals are Kellogg's Corn Flakes and Nabisco Shredded Wheat. A mystery cereal is presented to the group...

Narrator: We're having breakfast with the Englander family. And these are their favorite cereals. But this morning, they're trying something different, a cereal they've never had before.

Mother: It's something I'd pick.

Grandmother: Delicious.

Father: I'm going nuts trying to figure out what makes it different.

Son: What is it?

Narrator: Post Fortified Oat Flakes is lightly toasted, slightly sweet, deliciously different from any other cereal, and it's a high nutrition cereal.

Father: You've got a great family cereal here.

This is the ONLY cereal I would eat until I couldn't find it any more. I had BAD withdrawals for years. I can even feel those symptoms coming back now just thinking about it! I LOVED THIS CEREAL! Why did they take it away... :(

If I had a million dollars, I would pay to get the recipe for Post Fortified Oat Flakes! Some mornings, junior high era, I would eat 4 bowls of it!

One of the all-time greats. There's nothing that even vaguely resembles it - a completely unique taste and texture.

I loved this cereal and I wish they would make it again. I think probably one reason it didn't survive: It tended to get soggy extremely fast. But that is actually something I liked. I hate that 'stays crunchy in milk' became such a fad with so many cereals. Anyway, I loved the taste, and have never found anything that quite compares.

It was awesome. Never understand why any manufacturer of any successful product would stop making it.

This was my favorite cereal during the 1970s... I was heartbroken when they stopped making it... I can still remember the taste... so comforting. :-) Unfortunately I've never found a cereal that tastes anything like it. Wish I knew the ingredients!

I'd buy this cereal in bulk, just to have some on hand. I miss it.
