I have finally found a cereal that brings back the memory of Oat Flakes. Special K Protein Original. Does it taste like Oat Flakes? Who knows, it's been so long. But it sure reminds me of it!

This was my favorite cereal growing up. Bring it back. I was so disappointed when it was discontinued.

This was my favorite cereal as a kid. It came back briefly in the 80's and I loved it then as well. PLEASE bring it back.

My favorite cereal growing up... then when I had kids, we had it again. Since I haven't been been able to find it. I've been looking for a substitute with no luck. I wish it would come back.

I just thought my stores didn't carry Oat Flakes anymore. I did not know they stopped making it. It was my all-time favorite cereal as a kid and grownup. Now I am really disappointed.

There was a pie recipe on box and this cereal made the most delicious crust. Wish I could find it again.

This was my VERY VERY VERY favorite dry cereal as a kid. Wonderful, indescribable flavor. Much more unique, hearty, deep flavor than any other cereal. Nothing compares. So disappointed when it was discontinued. Please, please bring it back!

Best cereal ever. My favorite as a kid. Ate a bowl a day for years. Why did they discontinue this? Honey Bunches of Oats is nowhere near as good as the original 'Post Oat Flakes - Great Idea!'

I remember always loving this! Then Quaker put it out! Was the last time I had it! All others can't compare.
