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

I finally found Grape Nut Flakes in my local Food City in Chattanooga. It was even on sale. I had two bowls last night. So glad it is back. The flavor is still the same.

Not sure I believe Post's response of a shortage in production schedule to accommodate the most popular items. In the several stores I have been in, GNF was the only Post cereal that was bare and all the rest were fully stocked. GNF sells very well in the stores that I shop in that carry it.

Post better not discontinue Grape Nut Flakes. It is a delicious cereal. It's funny that they cannot produce this cereal but it's one of the flakes in Honey bunches of Oats. Would they not have to produce it to put it in that cereal? My fear is the shelf space at stores for GNF will now go to other cereals.

Here's Post's reply to my to my question about what has happened to the availability of Grape Nuts Flakes: "The item you are looking for may be out of stock for 2-5 months due to adjustments in our production schedules to ensure the items in highest demand are available. We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause you. We will continue to work to get all of our items back on shelves as soon as possible." So the good news is GNF has not been discontinued. It seems like the huge demand for cereal caused by the pandemic has led Post to concentrate production on the brands they sell the most. GNF just seems to be another victim of COVID-19. Let's hope it recovers!

On a recent hunt for Grape Nuts Flakes, I was able to find 2 boxes for $5.75 each. The store manager noticed that the expiration date on them was April 2020, so he offered me $10 off the cost of the 2 boxes. He didn't know when (or IF) he would ever get another delivery of this cereal, so I may have finished the last 2 boxes of this cereal on earth. Lucky me....the quality of the cereal was perfect even though it had passed its expiration date.

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.
