Description
The box was small and foil wrapped. The cereal was tiny flakes that got chewey in milk. I'm still hoping it will make a comeback since it was healthy and sugar free!

I remember Concentrate Cereal. I LOVED it! Still in my adult life I hoped for a comeback myself. There is no cereal on the market like it and I truly miss it. Nothing comes even close to the flavor it had or the distinct wrapping. By the way, anyone know which company made it?

I sure wish this cereal would come back, too. When I was young Mom had an awful time getting me to eat breakfast. I hated it. The only thing I lied and was actually nutricious was this wonderful cereal. Please Kellogg's take head!!! We loved it then. We'd buy it for sure now.

Best thing about this cereal? If you poured seltzer over it (or any soda), it EXPLODED. Hilarious!

I grew up with Concentrate! A box will last only two days. I would take a 12 oz glass and fill it up to the middle, add sugar and milk and I was in heaven. I wonder why Kellogs took it out of the market. Darn!

I want my Concentrate even though you had no extra milk to play with. My mom and I would always have a bowl together and suddenly there was no more concentrate and mom has been gone for 10 years. Bring the cereal bacl..please

Does anyone know if Kelloggs has released the recipe for Concentrate? I think they took it off the market because it was simply too expensive to make. I seem to remember it pricing out for over $4.00/box in the late 70's however... it was so good that it would definitely be worth making at home as a treat. If they(Kelloggs's) won't make it again maybe they'll let us make it for ourselves!

I loved Kelloggs Concentrate. I would buy it every week, but my little sister would get down to breakfast first and eat my cereal!!! i would get so mad at her and my mom would say "if it's in this house, it's for everyone" of course I had 7 brothers and sisters...
Pauline - October 31, 2008 - Report this comment
I, too had 7 siblings to share with. Concentrate was my all time favorite cereal growing up in Hawaii. When I get desperate for my favorite cereal, I take my Kellogs corn flakes, smash it with the back of my spoon so that it breaks into small flakes (like the Concentrate Cereal), sprinkle some sugar on it, pour milk over it and enjoy it like I did when I was 10! That's the closest I can get to having my all time favorite cereal.
Christie - November 01, 2008 - Report this comment
It was my favorite cereal of all time!! It was just so unique...milk, sugar and oh, my, the way it chewed. I absolutely loved it. Each time a new store opens in my area, I look for it. After all these years, I am still looking for it. I can't believe in this day and age of "healthy" foods, Kellogg's hasn't brought it back. Small gold and white box with a big C...I loved it.
Mary - November 19, 2008 - Report this comment
This is so fun/funny to read since I see I'm not alone when I crave this cereal. The reason I loved it was because I was allowed to put sugar on it and the mix of sugar and concentrate at the end of the bowl was yummy.

My Dad would buy it, and I would sneak in the kitchen and eat it till I would almost get sick, I couldn't get enough. I grew up on Concentrate, it was always my favorite, that cute little Gold box with the Big C, I can almost taste it, I know it's "just a cereal" but I have honestly thought about it so very often, in fact I probably think of it every time I walk down the cereal isle! I've missed it for years. If I like it I buy it...I don't care if it's higher than the others....Sure wish I could taste it again. I don't understand why it can't be brought back...C'mon Kelloggs, give it another try!!!!!

My brother and I ate Concentrate growing up and to this day (40 years later) I sometimes crave the taste that I cannot match. We ate the cereal in little fruit bowls and one small bowl would completely fill you up. I think it was actually to be sprinkled on other cereal but we ate it alone. I beg you to bring this back!

Lawrence - March 12, 2009 - Report this comment
I LOVED this cereal. I would eat 1/2 a box at a sitting, but it had to be made just right: 2% Milk poured to just cover the small flakes and allow the milk to warm up to room temperature. This process made it taste nuttier, but you couldn't leave it too long or it would turn to mush. I want some NOW!

Yes, I remember eating this in the late 60s. It was expensive, so we used it as a cereal topping, like wheat germ. Heaven was an occasional 6 oz bowl of Concentrate and milk! The texture as well as the taste was very pleasing. I'd really like to see this come back!

Eric Beutter - May 19, 2009 - Report this comment
When I was young we kids used to put just enough milk over the cereal to make it wet and dense and add way too much sugar and carve away at it with a spoon. When it was gone we'd do it all over again! We couldn't get enough. I still remember the chewiness and the nutty flavor -- hard to describe but not hard to eat!! I'll bet it would be a great ingredient in a loaf of homemade bread. Bring it back Kellogg's!
lynn - May 22, 2009 - Report this comment
I, too, have wished to find Kellogg's Concentrate again. think I'll write Vermont Country Store because they find or replicate out of production items. I wouldn't touch milk as a kid (and still won't) so I ate Concentrate straight out of the box through the little aluminum pour spout. I remember it being expensive but, for some reason, the number 50 sticks in my mind, as in maybe 50 cents. I'm certain I ate it before 1960 and purchased it in the mid 1960's when I lived on my own.

I was a cereal maniac growing up as a kid in the 70's and I made sure to try every kind of cereal at least once. I think that's why I started eating Concentrate and ended up thoroughly besotted. It's comforting to know that I'm not the only one wandering the cereal aisle mourning plantively for that beloved little gold box. At the very least, Kellogg's should search out the old recipe in their archives and make it available to those of us who'll try to do something with it. I've always wondered what the ingredients were that made it so addictive because I've yet to come across another food that even comes close to that unforgettable taste.

Ok, I never heard of this cereal, just stumbled across an ad for it in an old magazine and got curious. After reading everyone's comments, I thought I'd make a suggestion. If you really want it back you might try The Vermont Country Store. They sell a lot of long-gone things and I have no idea how they manage to do it, but I love them for it! There's a Suggest a Product page at the bottom of the homepage of their site. Good luck!

I was a very picky eater as a kid and the only cereal my Mom could get me to eat was Big C Concentrate by Kelloggs. I didn't know it at the time but it was Kelloggs brand of a "Healthy" alternative. I just knew I loved it and would eat nothing else for breakfast. I called it Big CC. As I got older the only place she could find it was at Ralph's. Then she heard they discontinued it. Please Kelloggs BRING IT BACK!!

Concentrate dry cereal was a special treat and soooooo satisfing as a snack,or quick morning start for the day. I used to hide the little gold foil box behind the other cereal since it was more expensive and I did not want the kids to divore it when I could pleasure my taste buds after they had gone to school. Why,Oh Why,did Kellogg drop it from the line of cereals? Was it too good and healthy when they could make more money off the "fillers full of sugar"? At this point in time it would be perfect to try and bring it back when everyone is paying for the healthy foods without the added sugars.

Add my name to the long list of CONCENTRATE DEVOTEES! My mom had to ration the cereal because I loved it so much as a child. I could have one bowl per day; this was circa 1960s. After I was grown, I bought it until it was no longer on the grocery shelves!! My grown daughter sent me this link because I have talked about this great cereal all her life, but she has never had any, as she is only 25 years old. I am now 56 years old and would buy it for the rest of my life if they ever returned to the market!! CAN SOMEONE PLEASE GET KELLOGG'S TO READ THESE COMMENTS AND CONSIDER A "COMEBACK"?? IT WOULD BE A HUGE SUCCESS. Thanks for all the fun comments and memories above. Sincerely yours, Diane

Let me add my 2 cents and say I would pay $20.00 for a box of Concentrate. I ate it soaked in milk just enough to make a paste. It was great, and I think about it all the time. Kelloggs - Do yourself a favor, and bring this back. Pleeeease! Pleease! Pleeeeeeeaaase! oh please! I do wonder how healthy it really was? It tasted too good to be healthy. If you had a choice between chocolate or Concentrate - which would you pick. CONCENTRATE of course!!!!

Concentrate was my favorite cereal as I grew up, and remains my favorite cereal of all time. The completely unique texture, subtle taste with sugar and milk... and good for you! I was so disappointed when my home town store stopped stocking it. Even after I moved away for college I would check back at that store when in town to see if they had it. Kellogg's -- please bring back Concentrate!! Bob Stanley

OMG...I too loved this cereal in the 1960's. If I had a choice between filet mignon, Lobster, Chocolate cake, etc.....I would rather eat Concentrate cereal. I think they stopped making it because the cost of goods was high and sales were low. This was my favorite cereal. My second choice was Post Oat Flakes which they stopped making in the 1980's. I don't really eat cereal anymore.

My family ate caseloads of this in the 70's and I'd beg my parents to keep buying more! I still think about Concentrate ALL THE TIME when I walk down the cereal aisle and see all the air-puffed, artifically flavored, sugary CRAP. Concentrate had none of that! With people being so health-conscious now it would probably sell better than ever- low fat, low sugar, low-salt, low-cholesterol, great taste and nutrition. I'd pay $20 a box too for such a perfect food! The taste was unique and amazing considering how nutritious it was. Kellogg's: why struggle to make new cereal recipes? Whoever took this out of the product line made a goof! This was one of the greatest foods ever!

I fondly remember this cereal as well. My folks bought this for me as a kid, so 1959, and I'd use just milk or also added sugar sometimes too. I still prefer no sugar/reduced sugar cereals, like rice chex or wheaties [ sure they have sugar, but can hardly taste it, not even close to frosted flakes ] I may try smashing corn flakes to mimic the concentrate as another poster suggested. Yup, sure would be nice to taste that again...

What a relief. I think about this cereal so often but no one I know remembers it. I loved it and wish for it and frankly am thrilled to read all these comments because they mirror mine. It was the tastiest cereal and the texture was perfect and nothing I have tasted since tastes like Concentrate. I had forgotten the foil box until reading the comments here but now I remember that and the amazing spout that made it different and somehow tastier than the other cereals.

Concentrate was a real treat for me as a kid. My mom always bought it for my sister to eat, and sometimes I would be allowed to have some as well. I think it was a bit more expensive than other cereals so we could not always have it. However, I loved it and savored every bite of Concentrate. I remember the small box and the spout on the side of the box to pour the cereal. It had a unique taste, and was truly delicious. I, too, wish Kellogs would put it back on the market.

I had to looked this cereal up as I don't recall ever having it as a kid. I saw the box though and instantly recognized it, it was a "grown up" cereal according to my mom. This cereal wasn't for kids. This cereal and Grape-Nuts were hands off to the kids. Probably due to the cost as I've read through all the posts stating it was an expensive product to buy at that time and us being on this side of poor, mom most likely assumed thought this was a good diet product for her as I remember her always being on a diet. Anyway looks like I may have missed out on something pretty special. Interesting though, looks like there are a lot of fans of this one product, pretty amazing.

My all time favorite cereal. I so wish it would come back. I think the last time I remember buying it was in the early 80's. I was on a family trip out west and we saw it in a grocery store and my father bought up the remaining boxes because we had not seen it in our local store for some time. It was sad when the last box was gone and I never had it again.

My brother and I ate Concentrate like it was a religious experience and would get in trouble if we did not wash out the little cereal bowls when we were finished - if we did not - we had to scrub the dried, tiny flakes from the sides of the dish. If my memory serves me correctly - the cereal was originally used as a dietary supplement that was designed to sprinkled over the top of other cereals. I am not sure what its purpose was. That is why it came in those small boxes and had those tiny flakes. But it was absolutely the best tasting food I have ever had. Almost addictive. I miss that taste - please bring it back!!!!

Here's an email that Kellogg's just sent me. "Thank you for letting us know you loved Kellogg's® Concentrate cereal. I am sorry to inform you that this product was discontinued due to lack of demand nationwide. If the stores start to discontinue an item, we find that we cannot produce the smaller volumes the business demands. It is always difficult for us to make the decision to discontinue a product, as we know it is always someone’s favorite. At this time, there are no plans to reintroduce it. I know that it may be hard to find a replacement, but we are always developing new products so I am sure that you will soon find another favorite!

Today I was eating Wheat Chex. When I got to the bottom after the cereal had softened, it kind of reminded me of the texture and taste of Concentrate, which prompted me to do a google search. Concentrate was the only cereal I would ever eat. My mom would buy it just for me - even though she was quite frugal and it was very expensive. Thankfully, my brother and sister never got into it - literally or figuaratively. I wonder what the calorie count was?? Those days, I didn't even know what a calorie was - let alone worry about how many I consumed. I think today it would be far too costly for the average consumer to enjoy on a regular basis. Also, I'm sure there were a lot of calories packed into that tiny box - albeit healthy ones.

Baby boomers would make it a big seller -- are you listening, Kellogg's? Please bring back our favorite cereal or at least release the formula to someone willing to take the chance.

Me again. I've just been googling Kellogg's Concentrate. It had wheat germ, but no other ingredients are mentioned in the ads I've found so far. What in the heck could have made it 40% protean and 99% fat free? Quinoa? Soy? I'm puzzled, but intrigued. Maybe we can talk someone (trader joe's?) into recreating it. Writing to Kellogg's next - but I doubt that will make much difference.

I don't remember it as a child, maybe because I predated it (i'm now 67). I discovered it in the early 70s and became an instant addict. Breakfast, sure -- often. Lunch, only on weekends when I was home. Snacks, of course. But it also was one of my fav dinner foods! I'd have it as my complete dinner at least three times a week for many years. When I heard Kelloggs was discontinuing it, I started hoarding it -- I'd buy all on the shelf (sorry, all!). Eventually, though, even my stash ran out. I think Ann has the right idea: let's deluge Kelloggs with calls and emails until they either reintroduce it or release the formula. Power to the People!

Concentrate was sooo heavenly. It's great to see so many people remembering the greatest cereal on earth! My nannie shared this w/me when I was young. We'd have it w/Half&Half & a little sugar. We didn't have it very often because it was expensive. Oh, how wonderful it would be to have it back.

UNBELIEVABLE...thought I was the only one who loved this cereal when I was a kid. Have searched for it also but they quit making it. I went to Kellogs website and e-mailed them to bring it back...Do the same.

When I was young, my best friend's family was much better off financially than mine. When I would visit her, I would get to eat Concentrate. My parents could not afford it. I dreamed of a day when I could afford the cereal and eat as much of it as I wanted. Kellogg's bring it back!!!!!!

All my childhood I was very anemic. My doctor prescribed a breakfast of Cereal Concentrate along with other various disgusting fooods. But Cereal Concentrate was AWESOME! I have looked for it for years to no avail. Kellogs.....look at all the requests here. Grow a brain and bring back Cereal Concentrate before I'm too old to remember it!

Wow - I googled Concentrate cereal today and found two lists of fans - how cool. Would love to taste that cereal again someday. It's amazing how strongly memories are linked to this stuff. The other site is "Yesteryear". Someone there contacted Kellogs about it and is going to post their response.

Loved this cereal, and miss it so much. Sure wish they'd bring it back. Even if it was $5 a box, I'd buy it, and often. Us old folks from the 70's have significant buying power - I don't know why they don't bring it back.

I absolutely loved Concentrate. My mom bought due to my poor appetite, although expensive. IT WAS SO WONDERFUL my brother and I still reminisce over its texture, taste, and chewy addictive goodness. I put brown sugar and milk on it and it was absolutly the yummiest thing in the WORLD!!!! Yummy Yummy Yummy. People don't understand. It is a club. WE know it is the YUMMIEST in the WORLD! Bring it back!!!!n

OK, this is crazy. I read all the comments from Concentrate lovers across the nation and tears started flowing down my face. I'm a 61 year old Chicago native who craves this product every day of my life! It was soooo Good. We've to start a media campaign to get this cereal back in the marketplace...Other favorties included Post Oak Flakes and a hot cereal called Ralston.

When I was two my mother gave me this cereal. I ate it for breakfast every day since. When they discontinued it I stopped eating breakfast. I never ate anything else for breakfast. My grandfather was a grocer and I bought the last 30 boxes he had before they stopped shipping it. I have not had breakfast since and I will not eat breakfast again until they bring it back. Concentrate IS breakfast. Everything else is just slop.

OMG! I, too, am shocked to see that I am not alone in yearning for Concentrate! I remember my parents leaving me and 5 boxes of Concentrate with friends when they went to Europe, telling them that if I didn't eat what they made for dinner, just feed me Concentrate! I LOVED it. But must say, I added lots of sugar. Still hoping to see that little gold box whenever I shop. Has anyone ever forwarded these posts to Kellogs? Just like bringing back all the old Marvel characters for movies---marketing to the boomers---they should kick-start another rollout of this awesome cereal. (Secretly, I've wondered if I would love it as much today).

So much for all our posts. Kelloggs does not seem to be listening. Maybe we should stop purchasing their other cereals. Do you think they would listen then? Probably not. We miss you Concentrate. Breakfast has never been the same.

I thought I was the only one remembering this cereal, I would watch my father eat it, he would push all the cereal to the side and bite by bite push it into the milk so it would not all get soggy at once. I started eating it too and wished they would bring it back, it was very tasty!

I can still taste it and smell it. As a kid would eat it with my grandmother in the 60's and into the 70's. I moved to California years ago and the first thing I did in the grocery stores was go down the cereal aisle and look for the little gold box. I keep hoping :(

I woke up this morning wishing I could have a bowl of Concentrate. I would crave it as a kid. My mouth waters just thinking about it. (Always wondered if there was something addictive in the cereal?) So I did a search for it and found this comment site. No longer alone in my secret longing, I feel like I'm part of this amazing cyber family of Concentrate lovers! Funny how we all remember the box too. Yes, someone MUST bring back this cereal. --I wonder if the cost had anything to do with its "addictive" quality? LOL!

I'm 57 and when you have boomers chatting about something they miss from their childhoods and are willing to hunt high and low and pay for it, this is a product you should look into resurrecting! I'll buy it. It was my favorite cereal as a kid and I ate it until they discontinued it. Bring it back!

Concentrate cereal was the best cereal. I remember eating it when I was a baby and ate it until it went off the market. It had such a great taste to it. If it was put back on the market I would definitely buy it and so would my siblings. I don't know why it was ever taken off the market, but I'm sure a lot of people would buy it again if it was put on the market with the same exact ingredients. I still remember the taste. There is nothing on the market that compares to Concentrate.

I remember the package said, "11 grams Protein--more than an egg and two strips of bacon". Once on a plane flight 40-some years ago my dad sat next to a man who either invented or was the chief marketer of Concentrate. He said he intended it to replace wheat germ. The six of us could have easily finished a box or two a day of Concentrate, but we could only afford a couple boxes a month.
Steve S - September 07, 2013 - Report this comment
That stuff was awesome! The small shiny gold box gave it exclusivity--a brand that stood far apart from the crowded cereal market. It also tasted like nothing else. I'm surprised and disappointed Kellogg doesn't see fit to take advantage of these qualities, especially with the health-conscious consumer of today.

I loved this cereal, and would sometimes eat the entire box in one sitting, necessitating a frantic run to the bathroom, lol. The taste and texture were addictive. I miss it desperately. (along with Count Chocula)

I ate this cereal when I was in Jr. High and High School. I remember that it was pricey for those days, but Mom still bought it because I liked it so much. I left a message on Kellogg's "Contact us" site letting them know that I would buy it again if they brought it back.

I had food allergies in the 50s & 60s and I think Mom also thought LIFE cereal had too much sugar, so she switched me to Concentrate. She'd really edit my portions because it WAS expensive and she was frugal but wanted the best for me because I was a sick kid. I would eat Concentrate with organic goat's milk because I couldn't drink cow's milk and I loved how the cereal would soak up the milk. I have enjoyed reading everyone's memories here because it sparked my own. It WAS a nutty flavor, wasn't it...and now I do recall that small, foil-wrapped box. It was like no other breakfast cereal. It was SOoooo good! I wonder if it was indeed taken off the market because it was too expensive to make by Kellogg but, man, I'm like the other reader/commenter who said I'd pay $20 a box for it if they'd just bring it back!

I grew up in the 50's & 60's in Fort Worth, Texas and my maternal grandmother always had a box or two of Concentrate in her pantry. I seem to recall that she used it sparingly because it acted like a laxative. I became addicted to it by the time I was ten and I can still remember the taste and texture. I may have dreamed this, but I thought I read an article in the late 70's that said it was removed from grocery shelves because there had been reports of people overindulging and suffering intestinal problems. Not sure about this though, it's been way too many years ago. Whether it was cost of making the product or other issues we may never know about, most likely we'll never see it on the grocery shelves again. Too bad because it was the best EVER!

I ate this stuff every week (at least) on game day. Two tablespoons was a serving??? I could probably make a box last for about 4 servings. I also put it on ice cream occasionally. Gah that stuff was good. Who remembers a cereal for 40 freakin' years, huh? KELLOGS BRING THIS STUFF BACK! Why did they discontinue it? WHY??? It had an almost vitaminie taste to it without being obnoxious. It was this good, wholesome kind of flavor that tasted like nothing else. Maybe it's...it's...Kellogs Concentrate is...PEOPLE!!! And that's why they had to discontinue it. I've never tried people so I wouldn't know, but if it was...would I, would you still eat it? Ewww...
