Square,flat...the commercial always was "stacking" the cereal to see how many high they could go.

I remember this cereal well. They were flat wheat squarish shapes, sort of like brown wheat honeycombs and had lots of crannies to hold milk. Closest modern day cereral in taste and appearance would be wheat chex except stax was an imperfect square shape. And you could stack them. Very tasty - never understood why they vanished.

I agree with Keith! I truly liked Stax and miss this novel cereal. I especially like the ad line. "Stax, the cereal that is toasted in places where other cereals don't have places!" Perhaps the manufacturer should reconsider re-introducing Stax or be satisfied being associated with those remanufacturing sugar for children and disguised as nutritious cereal.

Stax - my all-time favorite cereal. Some dumb advertisements killed a good product.

This had to be the 60's. I remember it as a kid, and then it was gone. Good tasting cereal.

Yes, this was a GREAT after school snack. I'd buy it today if available. Man...the MSN article about products pulled too soon was a trip back down memory lane!!!

I believe Orson Bean did a tv commercial for Stax. I used to love this cereal.

Yep--Stax was and is my favorite cereal of all time!! Sure wish they would bring this one back. It was the best and there is nothing on the market to compare with it. I'd even order it and buy it by the case if I had to. Love this cereal!! and wish it was still available!!!

We ate it in college (1966-67.) Four of us roomed in an apartment off campus. I'll have to dig up the pic of my roommate stacking them. Great cereal!

I loved this cereal, but only ate it as a dry snack, not with milk. I remember it having a sort of graham cracker taste.
