What ever happened to the original Nutri Grain cereals i.e. wheat, corn, and rye that were touted as a breakthrough in technology and oh so healthy? I recall how delicious they were back in the 1980s. Then suddenly they were no more in the USA.

We should vote to Kellogg's to re-market this here.

The original, unadulterated cereal was great! Then they added sugar, which as a diabetic, I found intolerable. I quit buying it. Then they replaced the sugar with chemicals (artificial sweeteners) which are also intolerable. I still didn't buy it. Then it disappeared from the shelves. I wonder why.

This was my favorite cereal growing up. I have looked high and low for it since only to learn that the line has been dropped. I'm totally bummed... Please come back!

I wish that the Nutri-Grain almond raisin would return to the United States. I have blood sugar issues and it has a great taste that I miss. I cannot find anything else that compares to it so I just don't have cereal anymore. Still wishing here in Texas!

The corn version was my favorite growing up. Hunted high and low for a substitute... Nothing comes close. Hoping for a comeback.

I'm a diabetic and this cereal is the best in the world for a controlled sugar reading. I cannot find any others that taste good and does great on my diabetes. Shame on them for not selling it anymore in the U.S.

I loved the Almond Raisin variety! I wish they would bring it back as I have not found anything comparable.

This stuff was gross. Thin yucky flakes which turned soggy in 10 seconds and then you have a bowl of wheat goop. I hate you, Nutri-Grain. I am so glad you are dead.
