The Grape-Nuts Shortage Is Over!

Finally, after a nationwide shortage forced fans to begrudging slurp bowls of lesser bran cereals, Grape-Nuts has reclaimed its rightful place on grocery store shelves. The fibrous cereal — made of neither grapes nor nuts — is once again fully stocked nationwide, signaling the official end to the pandemic Grape-Nuts shortage. To repay Grape-Nuts fanatics for their brand loyalty, Post may reimburse them up to $115 if they overpaid to get their cereal fix during the shortage. In January, Post assured Grape-Nuts fans that the brand would return to shelves in early spring when production returned to pre-pandemic levels. For some, the wait was too long. Some particularly fervent fans turned to the secondary cereal market to get their Grape-Nuts fix, paying up to $110 a box. The company is now offering to reimburse anyone who paid $10 or more for a box of Grape-Nuts between Nov. 1, 2020 and March 15, 2021.
