Fortified Oat Flakes
From: Post
Introduced in 1970


The first box described this cereal as "more nutritious than hot oatmeal". Later boxes referred to it as "high nutrition cereal". Commercials for the cereal used the tagline "Taste something different for breakfast."


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.

I ate this cereal throughout the 60's and 70's. It was healthy and delicious. It would be an especially significant breakfast cereal in these days of heart health concerns.

Loved this so much!! When I was little, on Saturdays I'd sit with my dad in the TV room and eat Oat Flakes, best part of my week! Loved them so much, tasty and not horribly sweet like many cereals now. I WOULD EAT THESE OAT FLAKES ALL THE TIME! Please please bring them back, made just the way they were back then.

I remember the very first time I ate Fortified Oat Flakes, when my late Father brought home a box for the very first time, sometime around Christmas of 1970 (I was 10). He bought the box for himself, allowing me to try a bowl. Much to his surprise (and chagrin), I wound up eating the entire box over the next couple of morning breakfasts!! It was the best tasting cereal I ever ate, PERIOD!! I loved it better than Trix, Lucky Charms, Frosted Flakes, or any other of the typical kid's cereals of the day. Nobody (even the Quaker Oats Company) is capable of making a cereal of so-called "Oat Flakes" that even comes close in flavor to what Post's tasted like. All "oat flake" cereals taste to me like Wheaties, or Total, that had been kept in an oatmeal box for about a month (and yes, I love Wheaties, and all wheat bran cereals). Please, Post Cereal Company, if you can read this, bring back this classic for all of us "classic folk" to enjoy, while hopefully making some new fans of it as well!!!!

Loved this cereal when I was growing up, it had such a great taste. Wish they would make it again from the original recipe. I couldn't believe they stopped making it! Please make it again.

This would be a dream come true if Post would bring this cereal back. Great flavor and great memories of my brother. We ate this a lot. I would buy it if you made it POST!
