Yes, the best cereal ever. Just was thinking about how good it was and am glad to find other cereal connoisseurs wishing Post Oat Flakes would be ressurected.

Forified Oat Flakes was truly the best! I will try the other suggestions. I wish they would bring it back! If anyone sees that they do please let us all know:)

By far the best cereal ever! Bring your product back post! I can remember that delicious cereal back in the 60's... why would you take them off the market?

Here it is 2013 and I still can't help looking for Kellogg's oat flakes in every grocery store while in the cereal aisle even though I know they don't make it anymore. Wish they would make it again.

I've been looking for this thinking it was still being made.... I travel for my job so I'd go into grocery stores throughout the Caribbean and Mexico thinking it was perhaps marketed outside of the US but now it find out it's been gone for 30 years!

They should bring it back and I think it would sell strongly. The buying public is educated and health minded.... we know oats lowers cholestrol and the product is largely fat free and sugar free. At least it's not sugar coated and they never used sugar substitutes like frosted mini wheats, etc.
It easily one of the best tasting cerals ever made and kids loved it too.
Do some market research and bring it back. Stores in the SW US can't keep Mexican made Coke in stock because they still use to original recipe and boy does it taste good. Much different than the high frictose corn syrup (cheaper to make) version we get here.
