Oat Flakes (Post)
From: Post
Introduced in 1959


This cereal was promoted with the lines: "Feel your oats" and "Tastes like oatmeal cookies." A 1959 newspaper ad called it "the first flakes made with oats (most nutritious grain of all!)."

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

Loved this cereal. With the resurgence of oats as a health food and the way it is being added to so many products, mostly bread, seems like a no-brainer for a resurrection!

I've been searching in vain for Post Oat Flakes. Absolutely the best. Post makes many fine products but this was my personal favorite.

I can not believe they stopped making this cereal. It was by FAR the best cereal ever. I wish I could see the ingredients list today because I would love to know just why it was so delicious.

I'd love to see this brought back just the way it was. It was the best tasting cereal I've ever eaten and I keep looking for it to come back.
