Like Shredded Wheat with fruit fillings. Raisin was the flavour I remember eating, but I believe there was also apple and possibly strawberry. Yellow, rather plain box with dark brown writing. The commercials aired all the time, and had a kid asking how they got the fruit inside Fruit Wheats cereal (reminiscent of the old Tootsie Pop commercials, just with an annoying guy in a castle instead of the turtle).

I used to love Fruit Wheats! For breakfast, as a snack, whenever! Sorry Nabisco no longer makes them.

I loved this cereal.. I wish they still made it. The only thing that comes close to this now is Frosted Mini Wheats. But there isn't any fruit inside. Booo.

I think if we all petition, we can get Fruit Wheats back. What do you think?

If enough people make it clear that they'd regularly buy this cereal they might bring it back... there are a couple of similar products out now, but they're not nearly as good as the original. Maybe a petition would help!

I made a petition to try to get this cereal manufactured again. Probably won't work but if anyone knows any executives over at Kraft of Post, maybe you could enlighten them to the fact that people would buy this stuff if they made it? Anyway, please sign the petition! http://www.petitionspot.com/petitions/VivaFruitWheats/

Strawberry Fruit Wheats was the best! My whole family misses that cereal and we'd buy boxes of the stuff if we could.

I loved strawberry fruit wheats as a kid, what the hell is up with all the good stuff being taken away, the 80's and 90's rocked. I heard that trader joe's has a similar product, so maybe we can all revel in the goodness once again.

This is the best cereal I have ever eaten! The raisin filled wheats were unbelievably delicious!!! I signed the petition online already. I would buy boxes of this cereal if I could.
Bjorn - November 20, 2009 - Report this comment
I remember these were delicious, I want some right now. These and Oatmeal Swirlers were such great products, today's quick breakfast items just can't match the creativity :(

I would love to have a reformulation of this cereal come back on the market. I still crave it occasionally.

I can't believe there are other people like me that loved this cereal! I use to eat the strawberry ones. I was just talking to a co-worker about them and she remember them too. I'm going to call Nabisco and see if they are bring them back!!

This was my favorite cereal from childhood--just found out the name again here! They should make those again, I will sign the petition. Apple was my top favorite flavor!

Kellogs Smart brand made a similar cereal about 6 months ago. The only flavor was strawberry and it was only available for about 4 weeks before they bagged it.. :( I bought 2 of them before they stopped being sold. It was the same fruit goo but it was mixed into the shredded wheat instead of being stuffed inside.

Holy crap! I can't believe there are other people out there who remember this cereal and loved it as much as me! Best. Cereal. Ever. I was just telling my fiance' about that cereal today. Crazy. I want it back! Frosted mini wheats just came out with a similar fruit-filled cereal.. it's good, but not quite the same.. too sugary. We must band together and plead with Nabisco to bring it back! Viva La Fruit Wheats!!!

This was the best cereal ever! I can't believe there are others out there who love and remember it as much as I do. We must convince Nabisco to bring this cereal back! Kellogs just brought out a fruit-filled Frosted Mini Wheats that is similar, but not quite the same.. too sugary. It is still good though, and if you miss Fruit Wheats, please buy some. I would hate to see Kellogs discontinue it because they don't sell enough. It will have to do for now, until we can bring about the rebirth of Fruit Wheats.. Viva La Fruit Wheats!!!

I remember the song on the commercial.."Fruit Wheats, the in cereal..etc." I liked the strawberry.

Everytime I'm hungry in the morning and nothing sounds good, I think about how great that cereal would be about right now. I fianally decided to get online and try to find out why they don't make it anymore. I figure they quit making it due to the cost to manufacture it, I really don't care if it costed more money, id pay ten bucks a box to enjoy that amazing greatness once again

I thought I was the only one who remembered this cereal. Everyone else thinks I'm crazy. I loved it. It was delish. I think the song went something like "fruit wheats, the in cereal. Incredible taste with each bite that you take. _______ strawberry, apple, or raisin. Fruit wheats the in cereal."

I didn't care much for the strawberry Fruit Wheats. I thought they smelled prety awful.
Lyndsey - July 23, 2016 - Report this comment
Yes! Strawberry Fruit Wheats were the best. The link for the petition is broken, by the way. I'm going to start another petition because I need for my kids to experience the deliciousness that was Fruit Wheats!!

Kashi makes a cereal called Berry Fruitful that is a great substitute for our Fruit Wheats nostalgia. I don't know how long it has been around, but it has the flavor and texture that I remember.
