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.

One of my favorite cereals ever was "Toasted Oat Flakes", which I can't seem to find any evidence of. I seem to recall that it was by Post, so I'm wondering if they renamed it, or if I'm suffering some Mandela Effect. Anyone know for sure? What made the cereal so memorable to me is that when it was dry, it was as boring as Wheaties, but if you let it get soggy, it became amazing, so I'd pour the milk on and stir for a couple minutes before eating a spoonful...

Fortified Oat Flakes is my all-time favorite cereal! Oddly, it turned out to be my husband's all-time favorite as well, and we both loved Rice Krinkles when we were really young kids. I'm not sure, but I think that for a short time they once had two other versions - one with "freeze-dried" strawberries, & one with some other dried berry or fruit. Can anyone confirm or deny that? (I might be conflating some other cereal with Fortified Oat Flakes...). As another reviewer pointed out, there really WAS an addictive quality to Fortified Oat Flakes. I preferred FOF to sugary cereals too, and while I always left a fair amount of those in the bottom of my bowl, I scraped out every last bit when eating FOF! I bet people would love them today, with all the interest in oats & oat milk. Besides - though I cant describe the flavor, they really were DELICIOUS!

Definitely my all-time favorite cereal. After years of mourning, I was thrilled to see it again on the shelf around 1989-1990. I thought I was set for life from here on out. To boot, the store even had a generic brand which was pretty dang close -- close enough that if the real thing hadn't been available, I'd still have been pretty happy. I bought a few off the shelf, but didn't buy the whole shelf because I had no idea that that was the last time I'd see it. So... back to mourning.

I loved, loved, loved this cereal! I've been looking for something similar without any luck whatsoever. Please, please bring it back! With oats being touted as a heart-healthy grain it's sure to be a hit again. Bring them back!
