Grape-Nuts Flakes
From: Post
Introduced in 1932

  • In 1936, Grape Nuts Flakes sponsored a radio serial called Hoof Beats. The star was a retired rodeo champ named Buck Jones. According to Buck, "When it comes to grub for breakfast, nothing hits the spot with me like a heapin' bowl of Grape Nuts Flakes.


  • In 1933, Grape Nuts Flakes were promoted during reports from Admiral Byrd's real-life journey to the North Pole. In reports from his adventure, the explorer told radio audiences that his men were eating Grape Nut Flakes to "fortify themselves from the punishing cold and hardships of Antarctica."

A vintage magazine ad described Grape-Nuts Flakes like this:

"New! Crispier! Sweeter!

"New, new, new Post's Grape-Nuts Flakes - crispiest wheat flakes you ever dreamed of! Every flake now has a roasted-in curl that helps keep it crunchy right down to the last delicious spoonful - even when swimming in milk!

"Yes, sweeter and better than any wheat flake you ever tasted! New Grape-Nuts Flakes have a flavor bakes through and trough each flake. And remember, 2 minutes after you eat them, that whole-wheat energy starts to work for you!"

Company Description: Founded by C.W. Post, the company began in 1895 in Battle Creek, Michigan under the name Postum Cereals. Their first product was a coffee substitute called Postum. The first breakfast cereal to come from the company was Grape-Nuts in 1897... Read on and see all cereals from Post

Great news. I just bought a box of Grape Nut Flakes at my Wal Mart. I have not seen it there for over a year. Thank you Wal Mart.

My whole family loves Grape Nuts Flakes. We have searched everywhere and can not find them. I can't pay over 5.00 a box on the internet. Please make them more available!

Publix and Food City still carry them. Wal Mart discontinued them. Post is still making Grape Nut Flakes.

What is the matter with a company that ignores the wishes of their customers? The Post people ARE the ones at fault. I checked with a manager of our local Wegman's store here in VA and he says that he hasn't been able to get them any more. Ditto for Walmart.

PDL, try local grocery stores in your area. They seem to carry Grape Nut Flakes more often than the national chains. If not just ask the store if they can order it. Good luck.

Grape Nuts Flakes were always my favorite. They seemed to have disappeared off of the store shelves in my area(Arvada Colorado). Anyone have any information about that? Thanks.

Grape Nuts Flakes is one of my top 3 favorite cereals of all time! It's simple and more nutrition-oriented than most but the flavor defies the ingredients. Even though it has a relatively low sugar content, I have never needed to add any sweetener. Apparently the way it's made produces a unique sweetening effect that is also present (but not as pronounced) in regular Grape Nuts. I have eaten this cereal for 30+ years and never tire of it - though I do switch around what I eat for variety.

I was sad to see Walmart stop carrying Grape Nuts Flakes last year (2017) here in Oregon. The only place I've been able to buy it lately is WinCo. Walmart, please bring this cereal back! And please Post, never discontinue this product! It is one of the few great tasting, healthier cereals of all time! David L.

Please bring back Grape nut Flakes. Canadians like me want them back too! I used to go over to the USA and buy them all the time, they stopped carrying them here in Canada a few years ago.
