Since the DW and I fit in the high risk category, our kids and grandkids have us under "house arrest". I tell everyone we are waiting for Amazon to deliver our ankle brackets....
Daughter called yesterday and asked if we needed anything from the store. The DW mentioned a box of Raisin Bran. They end up at Sam's and we get a five lb. Box of Raisin Bran. Our fiber problem is solved for the rest of the year.

I wasn't aware Raisin Bran came in 5 lb boxes. I don't use "flake" cereals any more since I find them too sweet for my taste. I stick with hot cereals, where I can control the sugar, and my own recipe for whole wheat pancakes. I do use limited syrup, which is always natural maple, since most syrups on the market are basically high fructose corn syrup with artificial coloring and flavoring. [emoticon]

Technically, it is a 4 lb., 12 oz. box, I rounded up. It has two big bags inside the box. We usually do not eat cereal either, just once in a while, that is why I said it will actually last us the rest of the year....

How long do those flakes last before getting stale?

Mr. Ed, depends on how fast you eat them up! Two separate sealed bags in the box, I did not check the exp. date...,.

Store cereal in Tupperware or Rubbermaid containers. It will last much longer that way.

I wish I could buy dry cereal in the retro single-serving size package.

I purchase the large bags of Oat Blenders honey & almonds (36oz size). Have a bowl each morning and top with wild blueberries and a glass of orange juice and a cup of 8 oclock coffee.

The bag is resealable to stay fresh.

My Mother bought 10 pack of little boxes of cereal for our kids and they loved choosing their favorites. They’re still available in grocery stores so I get them for our grandchildren now too. They’re not “cost effective” but what the heck ? You are probably not wanting kids cereals however.

I've seen single serve cups of oatmeal (hot cereal, of course) in our local Walmart. That wouldn't be a big enough portion for me. I always follow directions for 2 servings.
