I remember having Maltex cereal when I was a kid. Haven’t seen it for years, but then again, I haven’t been looking for it.
It probably costs a bit more than a penny a serving.
I’ll take two.
One of the interesting things about these old advertisements is how old “mother” is often portrayed to be. The image would be more of a grandmother type figure today, not a mother.
We sometimes had malt-o-meal for breakfast. Haven’t had any lately.
Us, too! I preferred malt-o-meal over Cream of Wheat back then. Remember “winners warm up with malt-o-meal!”
I preferred malt-o-meal too, but my mother must have liked cream of wheat best because we usually had that. Or oatmeal.
My mother preferred cream of wheat, too! We did eat oatmeal, and once when she was out of cereal, she made corn meal mush. I recall not liking it, although we always ate cornbread and loved it, and I still do.
I’m old, but I don’t remember ever hearing of malt cereals.
We ate Malt-o-meal and Cream of Wheat all the time growing up. I have both those in my pantry as I type! Nothing better on a cold morning!!
