Does anyone know where I can find a reasonable facsimile of Pettijohn's cereal in MSP?

I understand that Pettijohn's cereal is no longer made. This is a description of it: "Made with hard white Montana wheat and all natural bran. Manufactured by the Quaker Oats Company."

A coworker remembers his grandmother making it for him and serving it with sliced bananas, half and half, and brown sugar. He loved it so much as a child he'd bring his buddies over and ask gramma to make it for him and his friends. Of course she did!

What hot cereal do you think would be closet to Pettijohn's and where in MSP could I buy it? I'd love to make it for him so he can have a little trip down memory lane.

    Would Ralston be similar? It is also a whole wheat hot breakfast cereal.

        Any idea where to find Ralston in the area? It's my mom's favorite and it would be nice to have for when she visits, but haven't seen it up here at all.
