Introduced in 1986
This cereal was described on the box as a "whole wheat & bran cereal with raisins, pineapple, peanuts and coconut."
A 1986 television commercial introduced the cereal like this:
A man and a woman have tethered their horses to trees in the background. They appear to be taking a break from riding a "mountain trail" as they each enjoy a bowl of cereal.
Woman: Mmmm... this new cereal is something else. Fruit and nut...
Man: Right off the mountain trail. It's new Fruit and... uh... and... uh... something.
Announcer: Post Fruit & Fiber introduces new Mountain Trail... another delicious way to forget the fiber. Now 20% more fiber mixed with tender coconut, crunchy peanuts, sweet pineapple and raisins. So all you remember is...
Man: New Fruit and uh...
Woman: It's something else?
Announcer: Post Fruit & Fibre Mountain Trail Cereal tastes so good, you forget the fiber.
