I can remember back as a kid that my Mom would fix me and my brother Ralston for breakfast a couple times a week. When it disappeared from the grocery shelves it was sad as it was a part of my life. I was very happy when I found it on the Vermont Store web site I ordered some and now I can enjoy it once again a couple times a week. I must say it's just as good today as it was way back then.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by yooper At last I have found Ralston cereal.
I have been unable to find Ralston cereal for the past couple years. I checked all the grocery stores in the area. Other hot wheat cereals were available, but the taste was not acceptable. They had Bulgar wheat or rye or flax seed in them. The wheat they used was so strong, it was probably more suited for chicken feed? I finally searched the internet for Ralston cereal. To my relief, I found it at Vermont Country store. It is the same delicious mild wheat hot cereal I remember. It really warms me up when I want to get outside in the winter. I like it year around.

Over the years (which now number 85) I have thoroughly enjoyed hot cereal breakfasts. During my childhood, adolescent and young adulthood years I indulged in and relished several different hot cereals, Ralston being a particular favorite. However, unfortunately, over the years many of my breakfast hot cereals, Ralston included, disappeared from grocery shelves. Revivals have been presented recently, and I have tried each one. Yet each trial was a disappointment. That is until I discovered, ordered and sampled the Ralston from The Vermont Country Store. The first bowlful -- its taste, chewy ground wheat grains and satisfying consistency -- immediately propelled me back to those wonderful breakfasts of yesteryear. Iâm so glad The Vermont Country Store offers this product in âthree bags fullâ. A wonderful, ample supply for breakfasts until my next order.

Hi! Ever since my childhood in Chicago, I've been a huge fan of Ralston hot cereal but I can no longer find it anywhere except in your catalog. This Christmas, I found out that my sweet 89 year old great uncle in New Jersey also loves Ralston! Since he is mobility challenged, I sent him Ralston for Christmas. It was the perfect gift for him. He was thrilled! Thanks, Vermont.

I was so glad to see this product available again. It takes me back to mornings when I was a little guy getting ready for school and my mom preparing breakfast for me with Teresa Brewer or Kay Starr singing on the Philco in the background.
More times than not the breakfast consisted of Ralston, bacon and toast. It has(and still does) a different taste over other hot cereals I always liked and after ordering three bags of it I couldn't wait to try it again. It flooded my mind with memories from the early 50's when I first had it and I so enjoyed it this time as before.
Thanks for making Ralston available to us old timers that remember it from our youth.
