Team Flakes
From: Nabisco
Introduced in 1963


The first adult cereal with flakes made from four grains: corn, rice, oats and wheat.

It's suspected the cereal got its name because the four grains "team" together to make a winning flakes.

A magazine ad for Team Flakes described it like this:

There are people who have never tasted TEAM Flakes by Nabisco. A pity. They're so good... with rice, corn, oats and wheat teamed up in every flake. They even have bubbles baked in to keep them extra crisp.

Another ad introducing the cereal in 1963 described it like this:

The most spirited new breakfast in years!

New spirited taste! For the first time, 4 grains teamed up in one flakes... rice, corn, oats, wheat! Never before such taste in a flake! New crisp spirit!! You just can't dampen it with milk, because Team's baked with tiny bubbles for crispness. The spirited flakes with the spirited taste from Nabisco!


Company Description: Nabisco's history dates back to 1898 when three bakery conglomerates merged to form The National Biscuit Company - comprised of 114 bakeries. In 1901, The National Biscuit Company introduced the Nabisco Cracker. It wasn't until 1971 that the company changed it's name to Nabisco... Read on and see all cereals from Nabisco

Oh my I really do think about this cereal. I finally thought to look it up to see what's up... Bring it back even if only for short time, you'd make a lot of people happy. Love it...

I typed 'Team Flakes Cereal' into a search engine hoping to find my favorite all-time cereal somewhere online. Sadly, no luck. Maybe, just maybe, somebody at Kraft will peruse the comments on this site and realize it may be time to re-introduce our favorite cereal!

The best tasting cereal ever - and without being all sugared up too.

It was the first time I ever got in trouble for eating too much cereal! Filled a bowl that took the entire box.

My very favorite cereal. It had little crunchy, crispy bubbles in the flakes - so delicious. Also, I used to crush them as a coating for baked chicken. Everyone loved it. Please bring Team Flakes back!
