Post Foods History

Post Foods was founded by C. W. Post in 1895. The company’s first product was a cereal beverage, followed by its first cereal, Grape-Nuts, and Post Toasties. In its original advertising, Grape-Nuts claimed to cure appendicitis.

Post Foods changed its name to General Foods Company after acquiring Jell-O gelatin, Baker’s chocolate, and Maxwell House coffee in the 1920’s.

In 1985 Phillip Morris Companies acquired General Foods, and merged it with Kraft Foods in 1989. In 2007 Kraft spun-off Post Cereals and merged it with Ralcorp Holdings, naming the new company Post Foods.

Today Post Foods makes Grape-Nuts, Honey Bunches of Oats, Raisin Bran, Shredded Wheat, Alpha-Bits, Pebbles, Bran Flakes, and Toasties. The company is the third-largest cereal maker in the United States after Kellogg and General Mills.

Post Foods trades publicly on the New York Stock Exchange under the ticker symbol POST, is a member of the Russell 2000, has 7,950 employees, and had $3.80 billion in revenue in 2014.

Hello, I am a regular consumer of Post natural grains.. My complaint is not against the cereal but the box it is packaged in. .Too much glue is used on sealing the box making it impossible to open and reseal with out tearing the lid off. Please take care of this problem . I will be forever grateful.

Honey oat shredded wheat. Are they discontinued? The local grocery stores don’t stock them any more and now Jet doesn’t carry it either. One of your best products!

Your new formula for alpha-bits does not taste very good and I won’t be buying them again. Saving lots of money, are you?

Dear customer service,
As a family that purchases post cereals all my life, one of my kids favorite is Waffle crisp.
Its is very difficult to find since not all stores carry it. My complaint is price gouging by a local store. The 11 oz box of waffle crisp sold by Fairway foods in Paramus, nj is over charging for our waffle crisp. I was paying 3.19. But i was charged 6.30 for the same box of cereal. I purchased 5 boxes not realizing this. I complained that they are overcharging customers. They said thats the price you recommend. I am upset because its the most ridiculously priced cereal on the shelf.
I did not get any price adjustments or refunds.
Yet the very same cereal i found by chance at Stop and Shop in Dumont Nj for the everyday price of 3.19. I feel ripped off. They need to know that they are going make customers not purchase your Post brand cereals. I dont usually write to companies but i am very upset.
Please tell me what you can do for me.
Thank you.

Are you discontinuing Honey Bunches of Oats- Chocolate version? My son has celiac and I went to 7 stores today searching for it and they told me it is being discontinued. Is this true? If not, where can I get them in Iowa?

Dear Post, I complained about the improved Honeycomb and received a long email. I know how to save even more money, besides make Honeycomb smaller and taste funny ! Shorten the return complaint email to something like this.<>> Hey you, we don’t care that your wife, your nine grandchildren or you don’t like our new improved, doesn’t taste right and smaller Honeycomb. We’re a large corporation, out for bigger bucks and you can kiss our Post buttocks ! Now go find some old Honeycomb if you can and take our survey.<> At least your company would be honest, still a cold, impersonal corporation, but honest and to the point . Semi-respectfully , Ken

Grapenut Flakes: Please don’t discontinue Grapenut Flakes. My husband and I love this cereal and can’t understand why they are not available any longer. We have searched every store within 50 miles to no avail.

To who it may concern. I just recently bought some Honeycomb and Alphabits at the grocery store. Now I have to admit it’s been a while since we had either of them. But! What the hell did you do to your cereals? They are terrible! If you’re trying to make a few people happy by removing something that “might” be bad for you? DON’T! You ruined it. Whatever the reason is. DON’T DO IT! You just lost me as customer. I’ll go back to Kelloggs products. Thank you. Jack R. Mooney Sr.

Dear post,the food banks give your cerals out to the family’s,and are very welcomed n feel blessed,milk seems to be the problem,iam finding out too many family’s are eating cereal with water,so here’s my idea,can you create a cerals with some kind of milk crystals or what ever it takes so when water is added a milk base is produced?

I agree the new Honeycomb is AWFUL. Change it back please, I used to buy the largest size box at least 4 times a month, but never again with this new recipe. It’s gross and I should ask for my money back. Why the hell would you mess with a formula thats been a success for decades? Fire whoever is responsible.

Hello, I have been eating Post Bran Flakes when it was called Post 40% Bran Flakes since I was 10 years old. That was over forty years ago. I never got tired of eating it. It was my morning wake up call. I have noticed for the last few months that the packaging bag is so hard to open. When I finally get it open, bran flakes fly everywhere. It is good that you want the packaging to be secure but could you maybe use less glue so it is easier to open. Thank you.
