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

Sometimes I can get a BOGO and get it for under 2.00 at Publix. Awesome cereal.

I found Grape Nut Flakes today at Menards, of all places, in the small grocery section. I was delighted to find them. The price was good too.

It is sad that you can't find Grape Nuts Flakes in the super market where I shop. It is a favorite cereal and wish it was available someplace in La Mesa, CA. Used to find it at Walmart but not recently.

Sadly, Grape-Nuts Flakes are VERY hard to find. I called the 1-800 number and the folks at Post say it's not being discontinued (as of June 2019). However, the lions share of my local grocery stores no longer carry GNF. If I see it anywhere for under $4/box, I'm gonna snatch em all. LOVE this cereal.

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.
