Description
This was my favorite cereal of all time! It was a granola like cereal but had a sweeter taste. It came in a small box. It was great on top of vanilla ice cream!

One of the Great Grains is C.W. Post now. Not sure when it changed. My Mom had a C.W. Post coupon box for the longest time.

I love this website! For years I have tried to describe this cereal and could not remember the name- my mom bought it all the time and I loved it, then POOF... gone! I was only about 6 or so when we used to get this.

Nice to know this cereal had its fans. It was the "crack" of Granola....it had a coco-nutty taste and I has almost forgotten about it. I am guessing it's no longer made, but maybe somewhere, someone has a box of it unopened for sale on ebay. Maybe some cereal genius will recreate this treat again one day. But just having a bite of Honey coconut granola we got at a 99cent store, so not what I remember about CW Post. Big Jim KUCI 88.9FM Irvine

My Dad has worked for the company for 31 years. CW Post is my all time favorite cereal and I was crushed when they stopped making it. Try the new JUST BUNCHES... It's not as good, but pretty darn close.

My Mother used to buy CW Post for all the time and when I heard that it was longer being sold, it disappointed me. I tried to contact the maker to see if there was anything I can do to get some more boxes of it, but I didn't have any luck locating anyone. So this is the only way I know of to be heard and to voice my request. If there is any way that this cereal can get back on the market Pleas, Please, bring it back, this cereal is so good and it good for you. I hope this comment gets someone in the industry that used to make this cereal, and to reconsider. Thank You!!!

I have been looking for CW Post for years! The closest I have found is Cascadian Farm Organic Oats&Honey Granola--this tastes like the real deal!

I loved CW Post. I ate it all the time when I was a kid. I guess it was the closest thing to "healthy cereal" at that time. I was and still am so upset over the fact it is gone. I have tried others, but they just became bird food. Any suggestions on what I can buy that comes even close?? :(

I loved this cereal growing up, I wished they would make it again! We use to buy it when we visited relatives out of state, their local small town grocery store carried it after some of the bigger chains in our area stopped. Of course it is gone for good now but it was really good, like granola but better!

I'm eating a bowl of Just Bunches right now (made by Post). Not quite the same though. I think if they could make this cereal then they should be able to make the original again. Bring it BACK!!

OMG!!! I LOVED CW Post cereal! I tried Just Bunches. ummmmm, not quite the same--it's good. Alas, not as good as I remember CW Post. Even though, it was pretty much a granola, the taste was AWESOME!!!!!!--at least that's how I remember it--

I loved C.W. Post. I got my husband hooked on it and then they took it off the market. My husband and I looked for it in every grocery store we has been in. Not sure why they took it off the market? I am eating the Just Bunches now. It is pretty good but not the same as C.W. Post. Please put C.W. Post back on the shelves. There are alot of people that love this cereal.

I grew up on CW Post as a kid...always wondered what happened to it...

I too have been wondering why CW Post was removed from the market. It was the best granola cereal around, and great with yogurt. Please bring it back even for a test and see how well it sells
Debbie - October 12, 2008 - Report this comment
I was such a CW Post fan! I once found a store brand of cereal at a Kroger's store that was close, but then it was gone, too. I saw a commercial a few days ago for the Just Bunches, and I thought, hey, that's the same thing. I went out and bought come yesterday, and as someone said earlier, it's not CW Post, but it's pretty darn close! So to all you CW Post fans, give Just Bunches a try and see what you think!

Try Quaker oats 100% natural. I think its the closest thing to CW post, may fav ceral since I was a kid
Anita - February 04, 2009 - Report this comment
The closest thing I've found to CW Post is Honey Bunches of Oats Just Bunches. Nothing I've tasted comes as close. My mom still has the CW Post coupon box. She uses it as a recipe box.

Best cereal ever! Loved it mixed with corn flakes or with yogurt! Why did they stop making something so good? They ought to bring it back if they're smart ...
Erik - March 18, 2009 - Report this comment
C.W. Post was the best granola ever! My Dad use to buy it when I was a kid it was part of his secret cereal stash but I'd find it and enormous bowls of it then it was gone. Since then nothing compares to the unmatched glory that was C.W. Post, people we must band together and bombard Post with e-mails, petitions etc... to bring back C.W. in all it's radiant splendor!!

I'm no cereal connoisseur, but I knows what I likes.... and I loved CW Post. I just bought the Just Bunches tonight. Haven't tried it yet, but it's waiting for me. It's got some prreeety big shoes to fill though... in conclusion, CW POST RULES! BRING IT BACK!!! Someone should start a petition... I'd sign it!

I haven't tried the Just Bunches yet, but I think that Cascadian Farms Organic Oats & Honey Granola tastes just like what I remember CW Post to be.

We just finished up a box of Post's "Just Bunches." If you miss C.W. Post cereal, this should satisfy...it's pretty darned close to what C.W. Post used to be. I actually like it better, since it doesn't get so mushy, or turn the milk quite that odd honey color!

I miss CW Post, too! I can still taste it in my dreams. It's good to know that I'm not the only one. I'll have to buy a box of those 'Just Bunches' and see if they taste the same to me.

try the heartland granola cereal the person a few posts back listed, they are almost exactly the same as c.w. post. also bj's wholesale clubs have a granola cereal that's really close, they just have dried berries in it.

Not only did my sister and I LOVE this cereal, we used to dance around and sing the song from its commercial. I don't recall all the words, but they had a Music Man kind of guy dancing around town singing "...everybody likes it, even the kids! Pardon me son, that's mine!" I LOVE LOVE LOVE that cereal. I've tried the Just bunches and Quaker 100% natural cereals and they will have to do until Post smartens up and brings back C.W. Post. Afterall, everybody likes it...!

In the mid eighties a freind of mine have me CW POST for the first time, I was in 5th or 6th grade. We use to eat it plain, no milk. Those were the days. Everything now is just garbage. If anyone knows where to get some please post it for all of us CW POST fans.

My sister introduced CW POst to me in the 80's. IT was the greatest cereal!! Sad that it's no longer available. Nothing comes close. I just searched for it and found this website. I never would have known there were so many other C.W. Post cereal lovers out there. Bring it back is right!!!
Lisa - March 17, 2010 - Report this comment
This WAS the best cereal ever. My brother and I would sit and eat the whole box as soon as mom brought it home from the store.

I just sent an e-mail through Posts website with a link to this page. I encouraged them to have a look and see just how many consumers would love to see the return of C.W. Post. I too grew up on this cereal and it was AWESOME! You are all correct in saying nothing comes close! Please bring it back!!!!!!
Tim - August 26, 2010 - Report this comment
I say that C.W. Post was the BEST cereal of all time, seriously! I've honestly been wishing that one day Post would start back making it, as I now see there is a substantial amount of people with this very same thought. Why was C.W. Post discontinued anyway? Kind of makes you wonder if they were using an ingredient they can no longer use in it, hmmmmmmmm. If that is the case no one cares, PLEASE bring it back it didn't harm anyone then I'm sure it wouldn't now.

It's absolutely AMAZING how we love certain cereals or foods and then we get SO MAD when they stop making the product!! I feel your pain. I too have suffered when a product I love is suddenly pulled from the market. But I see a trend happening in stores now. Some of our cereals are coming back! Boo Berry is back! QUISP...my all time favorite, comes back now and then. I buy it when I see it. Just think about it...The people NOW in charge at the cereal companies are OUR AGE and used to eat the cereals too! They are responsible for bringing them back!!

YUM! So many memories with the cereal, I remember waking up early and having bowls of this with me dad. I too have search all over for CW Post, being a military family we lived all over the US, never could find it :( I also dream of the taste, as I read these post my mouth it watering. PLEASE bring it back.

I wish Kraft foods would bring back the CW Post...My dad worked for General foods the maker of CW Post. When he told me they were going to discontinue it because of sales I thought I must be the only one that like it..I ate about a box every other day...Gosh that stuff was great.

My all time favorite cereal, they stopped selling it here in Jersey years ago, but was still for sale in Minneapolis for a long time, I'd buy BOXES of it when I would visit my bother there. God, I wish they would bring it back!

Like the rest of you, I LOVED this cereal. My grandmother would stock me up on boxes of it. Also, like you all I would eat it plain. YUM!!! I contacted them about 10 years ago wondering where it was, some people didn't know what I was talking about. I think we should all bombard them with phone calls and emails, maybe then they will do a retro year to see how sales do when they bring it back for a bit.

I loved this cereal, though we didn't seem to buy it regularly growing up. Cmon! Just bring it back! At least "for a limited time" on a cyclical basis. Just Bunches didnt do it for me some years ago. Will try Cascadian's version.

I'm another fan!! I loved this cereal and was so disappointed when it was continued. I keep looking and hoping for C.W.Post to come back. As a kid in my family, we always got to choose our own box of cereal for the month and this was the kids favorite. 3 boxes every time we went shopping.

Are you interested in buying coin operated horses or spring rocking horses??? They are sold on Ebay. Most spring horses are made by Blazon, Wonder, Flexible Flyer, and Radio Flyer. Feel free to buy as many as you like. Good luck!!! :) Ebay account required.

I loved CWP as kid. I put in a search...What happened to CWP. I had no idea how many people ate & loved that cereal. As a kid, I said one day when I grow up I'm going to buy cabinet full of that little box of cereal. I haven't seen it since the 70's or so. For the memories bring it back.

The closest thing I've found to CW Post is Heartland Original granola cereal which seems to have decent distribution here in the mid-Atlantic. Now, if someone would just post the recipe for CW Post Bread from the back of the box...
