  1. I dunno where your from, but Grapenuts cereal is like the Yeti in this country. I've heard of it, but never seen it in Canada, and never heard of it sold here. IOW, I'm pretty sure it doesn't exist here.

      I bought it in Montreal, a few years ago. It seems to come and go. Haven't seen it in about four years, but haven't really been looking either. I'll keep an eye out for it.

        I am from Saskatchewan, readily available there. Spotted it in Hawkesbury,(Ont.) too.

          Thanks all. Lol at the yeti reference and yes, that's pretty much what I was expecting of this cereal in Montreal (but just wanted to make sure I hadn't missed it somewhere). Wanted to use it in a recipe. Oh well!

          I haven't seen it for years, but I love it so I always have a stock from Plattsburgh

        3. A decent substitute that tastes (and crunches) just like GN is Ezekiel's cereal, which I've found from time to time at Eden in La Cité on Parc ave:

          1. I second Ezekiel (way better product imho) but my wife loves Grapenuts and constantly laments that it isn't available in Mtl. We did a day trip to Burlington, Vt last week and she stocked up at the Co-op.
