Whatever happened to Team Flakes?

  • m

Does anyone know if Nabisco still makes Team Flakes? I have not seen them in years and they were one of my favorite cereals. A four grain flake of corn, oats, rice and wheat. The closest thing I know of now is Crispx, which I like but not as much as Team Flakes. Am I alone in my longing for Team Flakes or are there other like minded souls out there in the universe?

  1. Come to think of it, Where is Nutrigrain??

      Isn't Nutrigrain still around in the form of those sickeningly sweet breakfast bars?

        Yes, the nutrigrain granola bars are still around but not the breakfast cereal which was NOT sweet and quite yummy.

    2. Ah, you've brought back a long-forgotten memory. I (born in '61) grew up on "Team Flakes" (and "Life," which, of course, is still around) as my mom was somehow convinced that those two sugar-laden cereals were healthier than the even MORE sugar-laden alternatives!

      1. It's a sad, sad story...but I don't know what it is. I've been missing my Team Flakes for years. Hometown Favorites lists them on their "Boy, they were good, but..." list of discontinued products (link below). I do occasionally find other items listed there, but Team Flakes really do appear to be gone. Maybe if we all asked Nabisco to bring them back...

        1. Kellogg's Corn Soya cereal. Man, that was good!

          Wait a minute....why was this OP on this board NOW? it's 4 years old. Sucked me in....but there are no other more recent posts....what gives?

          1. General Mill's Curves Cereal Whole Grain Crunch UPC 0 16000 19806 7
            made with rice and wheat is very close to the Team Flakes flavor. There are several other Curves formulas but the whole grain crunch I think will be loved by Team Flakes lovers. I miss the team flakes too. I've been buying the Curves since summer 2007.

              I completely agree that the new Curves Cereal is the closest I've ever tasted to Team flakes. Each bowl takes me back to the good ole' days!

                I am going shopping first thing tomorrow to try and find that Curves cereal. I just signed onto this site and found the comments about TEAM FLAKES....oh my god, I have been thinking about that cereal for about 20 yrs...I hope your Oct 2007 comments about Curves arent too old, and that I can still find it on the shelves...just to see how close it tastes to Team flakes..thanks.
