Okay, guys. I'm another person who wants the Quaker puffed rice and wheat here in Indiana. At least put something in print about it. Or maybe I'll try calling a representative to find out what craziness took it off the shelves all over America.

I live in Hamilton, Ohio. Cannot find Quaker Puffed Wheat on any store shelves. SO SAD. Where can I find it? Bad move, not cool, to take it off the market!

@ rosy- Try this Quaker Products Store Locator. If all else fails, you can purchase it through the Quaker site itself, or Amazon.
