      I grew up eating Wheatena and have always loved it as well. I buy it at my local Balducci's in Bethesda, Maryland, so it's definitely still being produced.

        Yes!

        I used to eat it every day for breakfast (people at work called it "potting soil") but then it became hard to find.

        But just yesterday I was at an Albertson's here in San Diego and it was still on the shelf. I do find that not all supermarkets carry it, though.

          it was sold to a small cereal manufacturer in peensylvania and that may be affecting availability
