Uncle Sam Stories



A delicious surprise & welcome departure from traditional cereals
Submitted by Naomi Serviss
Dear Uncle Sam, I've never written to a cereal before, but I feel compelled to after sampling a bowl of you for breakfast. Your delightful, "unsugary" taste was a delicious surprise and a welcome departure from traditional cereals that clog the supermarket aisles. My only complaint is that it took me this long to "discover" you. I only hope my local supermarket continues to stock you and perhaps even order your other varieties. Regardless, I want YOU to keep up the great work! Sincerely, Naomi Serviss
A wonderful birthday present
Submitted by Tori Kline
I just wanted to tell you how much I enjoy your cereal. In the past, I have purchased Uncle Sam Cereal at my local Safeway and Wal-Mart stores but for the past year I was not able to find it. I was very discouraged. But, yesterday, on my birthday, I found it again on the shelves of Wal-Mart and bought four boxes! What a wonderful birthday present to me. Thanks for this wonderful product. ~ Tori Kline
Absolutely love it
Submitted by Angela Rader
I absolutely love the flax cereal . I make a bowl with blueberries,strawberries,and almond milk,or bananas,apples,cinnamon, and almond milk. I also use it crushed up to bread my chicken. Love it.
Absolutely love Uncle Sam Original
Submitted by Anne Smith
I absolutely love your original Uncle Sam cereal. There are so few cold whole grain cereals that have no sugar added! And it's high in fiber and protien as well! I have no interest in your other flavored, sweetened cereals, so please don't ever stop making your original, wonderful cereal. The only way it could be improved is for you to use ORGANIC ingredients, but please don't ever add sugar to it. It is great just the way it is. Thank you very much for making this pure, natural product.

I wasn't sure about this cereal at first. It could have been far too health food for me. But, I was really surprised! I have grown so attached to this cereal that when my local grocery store ran out recently I had to ask and make sure that the product would be coming back. My favorite way to eat this cereal is over almond yogurt. It also seems like it could make a great breading for savory meals for those who are gluten free eaters. Try it, even if you're afraid of it being too "crunchy," "granola," or hippie for you.

Great gluten free cereal!!! I've had trouble finding a gluten free cereal with high fiber that keeps my system regular. This has been the one. Thank you for a great product. However, I wish the box was larger. :=)
Best cereal available on the market for its nutritional value
Submitted by Lindsey C.
We have been eating the Uncle Sam's Original Cereal for years and feel it's the best cereal available on the market for its nutritional value.
Bigger size?
Submitted by Mike Parenteau
I toss in a handful of nuts and dried fruit, add a little skim milk, and start off the day on a positive note. Request: For us 'bulk' users, can you make a bigger size? I go thru 4 boxes a month; I'd rather go thru 1 bigger box a month.
Can't start our day without a bowl
Submitted by James Dunleavy
My wife and I love your Uncle Sam's cereal. Eat it most every morning. We really can't start our day with out a bowl of Uncle Sam's cereal. The only problem i have is the size of the box. I wish it was larger because we have to make a trip to the store every week to pick up more. Keep up the good work

This cereal is tasty. I was just put on a gluten free diet and was happy to find it at Whole Foods. Does anyone know the glycemic index for Organic Milled Corn?

I tried this cereal about a year ago because i was looking for a healthy alternative to the typical cereal that is loaded with sugar and/or corn syrup. Wow was i surprised. Have been eating Uncle Sam's ever since and there are no plans to switch back. Great product.

Eating it since I was a kid
Submitted by Ryan Newhardt
I've been eating Uncle Sam Cereal since I've been a kid, and I always have loved the flavor it has. I'll keep on passing it on the good word as long as you guys keep it up! Thanks!
Eating Uncle Sam every morning
Submitted by Sara Gray
I love your cereal! I have been eating Uncle Sam cereal for over five years every single morning with skim milk and blueberries, and it keeps me satisfied all morning long. The crunchiness, the flavor and the fiber content, I love it all. I never want to eat anything different, because nothing else tastes as good to me. Keep doing what you do, just put it in a bigger box!!

The Uncle Sam Cereal is one of the best i have tried. After I eat, I feel full and have energy that lasts way longer than an Oatmeal I have been eating. Thanks for great products.
Enjoying Uncle Sam

Hi Uncle Sam, I really enjoy your flax seed cereal. I buy it every week.
Full for hours
Submitted by Tiffany Coggins
I love the Uncle Sam Cereal with Mixed Berries. Most mornings I make a parfait of sorts with it. I mix it with a low sugar, organic yogurt, some hemp seeds and a couple nuts. I stay full for hours. Tiffany Coggins

I love Uncle Sam cereal--the original kind is all I've tasted--and eat it often. However, I am concerned that the flax seeds are whole. I've been reading and hearing recently that flax seeds must be ground in order to access all of their Omega-3 goodies. Does Uncle Sam contain ground as well as whole flax seed, or must I continue to add a tablespoon of ground seeds to my morning bowl? Just wondering. Either way, it's still the healthiest and best-tasting cereal on the market, as far as I am concerned.
Happy to have found Uncle Sam
Submitted by Karen McCort
A friend introduced me to Uncle Sam Original Cereal a couple weeks ago. I cannot praise it more highly! I am so happy to have found a cereal that is high in fiber and low in sugar and salt. Uncle Sam cereal has only 'real food' ingredients and I can pronounce them all!. It is far superior to the fiber cereal I used to eat that has become more tasteless and sugar-filled over the years. ( It's ingredient now take up 1/3 of the end panel!) Thank you for providing a healthy and tasty alternative.
Honey Almond is awesome
Submitted by Craig Fiedler
Wow! Honey Almond cereal is awesome.No more fruit loops for this guy.
Hunger abated for hours
Submitted by K Austin
A friend recently remarked that I have kept in shape despite my age and asked how I did it. Part of the answer came to me as I ate my daily portion of Uncle Sam Cereal. Over 25 years ago I noticed Uncle Sam in the cereal aisle. It seemed like an easier way to get Omega 3 without taking a supplement. On my suggestion as a dietary staple, many people have since tried it. My favorite way to eat Uncle Sam cereal is with whole almonds, raisins and skim milk. It keeps my hunger abated for hours. Thank you for a great product! The new varieties are appreciated too!
I eat it daily
Submitted by Lorraine Carlin
I love Uncle Sam cereal...I eat it daily, mixed with raisin bran, berries & sometimes a nut mix for extra crunch. First heard about it through Jorge Cruise's book on weight loss...love the flavor, no additives, and healthy flax seed. Glad my local Wal-Mart is still stocking it!!
I feel so much better
Submitted by Cindy Phillips
I have chronic migraines and was told by my doctor to lower my sugar intake in my diet. My cereal was high in carbs and sugars and after trying Kashi and other "healthy" brands none compares to Uncle Sam's Original. I feel so much better and it taste good too. My thanks to you.
I love this cereal
Submitted by Katie Barnes
I love this cereal with its healthiness and low sugar!! I am wondering why you choose to leave the flax whole when your body can benefit so much more from milled flax? That is its only drawback. I tried to use it as a breading but the whole seeds didn't work well, if it were milled or just the flakes it would have been perfect. My suggestion is to mill the seeds please, it would be so much better for us and that is why you make it, right? Thanks for this healthy cereal!

It has improved my digestion
Submitted by Marie Jenkins
I love, love, love this cereal. I eat about 2 boxes a week. The taste is wonderful even without fruit. Although I tend to add blueberries most mornings. It has improved my digestion ever since I discovered it about two years ago. I now take it with me when I travel. I just cant't function without it.  Thank you, Marie Jenkins

Submitted by Jeff
Diagnosed Type 2 diabetic, I needed to modify my diet. I tried Uncle Sam Original and now eat it every morning with 1% milk and noticed overall improved health. The taste was also very surprisingly good. A natural, almost sweet flavor and texture that you just don't find in other "whole grain" cereals. Excellent product, I may never buy another brand again.

Submitted by Jo Smith
The struggle to find a cereal with low sugar and all natural ingredients that doesn't taste like bark has ended! I USED to be a Kashi fan, but no longer. If this could just stay crunchy longer (I know, it's difficult), it would have gotten 5 stars.

Just the right hint of sweetness
Submitted by Diana Jordan
I love this cereal, its just the right HINT of sweetness to balance out the wheat flavor. i love to put it in my Greek yogurt to boost the fiber (unlike granola that just adds sugar) and give a delicious crunch that doesn't get soft and soggy.

Submitted by k joy
Just found this cereal at Whole Foods in Atlanta - and tried it for the first time this morning. It is absolutely delicious! What I miss most since going gluten free 3 years ago due to celiac disease is the taste of hearty grains. This cereal makes up for that and more! It has a hearty grain taste, is natural and unrefined, has just a hint of sweetness but you wouldn't say it is a sweet cereal by any stretch of the imagination, keeps crunchy in soymilk, and doesn't have all those refined fiberless starches that most gluten free products are based on! I love it! Just wish I had a Whole Foods near where I live so I could buy it on a regular basis! Erewhon - now see if you can make a gluten free bread that is just as hearty, healthy, and delicious - without all the refined starches!

Submitted by Karen
I am giving one star rating to this cereal because although I though it was pretty good and healthy the portion in relation with the calorie content it ridiculous. Who eats only 2 ounces of cereal in the morning? usually the serving size is 3/4 of a cup - 1 cup not a 1/4 of a cup, specially when one is pregnant and watching carefully the calorie intake. I won't be buying this cereal anymore.

Submitted by Lexa
We love Uncle Sam at our house! I was feeding my son Cheerios in the morning until I found out that the oats they use are genetically modified. Cue the Uncle Sam! I remember eating it when I was younger, and I wish I had thought of it before. Now my little buddy cries out "Unkee San" every morning when his belly starts grumbling. We both agree- the simple, healthy recipe should never change. My husband has yet to be converted, but I have faith :)
Little did I know that the second bite would turn into the next bowl
Submitted by Kate McCabe
To the people behind Uncle Sam Cereal, simply put: You are awesome. As an part-time endurance athlete and full time multi-tasker I've struggled with finding the perfect cereal. And trust me, I have taken it seriously. So seriously that it's become a running (pun intended) joke in our little family. When my boyfriend brought home Uncle Sam's for the first time, I poured myself a bowl, took a big bite, and stated matter of factly that this was the WORST cereal of all time. Little did I know that the second bite turned into the next bowl turned into stocking up on boxes turned into having my mom go out to Publix for a box in anticipation of a week end visit. What started out as resistance has turned into a genuine love for unassuming box. You guys make a great cereal and I wanted you to know that a Tallahassee lassie appreciates it.
Loaded with lots of "good stuff"

Quite tasty
Submitted by Carla Grants
I have never really contacted a company regarding their products, however, I have to say that Uncle Sam Cereal is really good. I was skeptical at first - whole grain, blah, etc - but it is not. Quite tasty. I have this for breakfast several times a week and it seems to help with my hypoglycemia.

I eat this stuff everyday. It's only got the good stuff and none of the junk. No preservatives or added sugar make this one of the best breakfast cereals in my opinion. It also tastes great!

Best cereal EVER. Just the right amount of sweetness, lots of strawberries ... so good. You can't even tell it's healthy!!
Sharon Kennedy
Submitted by Sharon Kennedy
This is the best cereal I have ever tasted! If you're looking for a healthy, filling, and delicious alternative to your usual breakfast fare, this is it. I found "Uncle Sam" at Wal-Mart of all places! I'm going to use this cereal in place of bread crumbs when I make my vegetarian burgers. I also plan on whizzing it in the food processor and using it as part of flour replacement when baking "healthy" cookies. I can't believe Uncle Sam has been around since 1908 and it only reached Michigan's Upper Peninsula in 2013! Keep up the good work and thank you for this super product! Sharon

I am on my 14th box of Uncle Sam and I cannot stop eating it! I have to hide my Uncle Sam cereal to make sure it is always there for me in the morning. I cannot begin to explain what a difference my body feels since I added Uncle Sam to my mornings, it is like adding pure Sunshine in a small bowl each day. Thank you once again for the help in changing how I feel...you are my Sunshine..my only Sunshine and please don't ever take my Sunshine away:-) - Susan B

Submitted by susie
I work a 10 hour shift and need to go to bed early in the evening. I don't want a large meal so I am a cereal by night person. I enjoy Uncle Sam with (no sugar added), plain soy milk and add dried cranberries for the extra sweetness. I used to eat Fiber One but rather control my sweetness and still get the added fiber. Great product, Attune!

This cereal is my saving grace
Submitted by Nadia
I want to thank you for offering a healthy, tasty alternative to the sugar-laden varieties that litter the cereal aisle. This cereal is my saving grace! It has helped me lose weight and maintain my weight loss. Every morning I eat a bowl of Uncle Sam Cereal with unsweetened soy milk, throw in some blueberries or banana slices, and I'm good to go! I can't think of a better way to start my day! I also cannot find anything comparable to the nutritional value of your product. Thanks, again!
Thrilled to find Uncle Sam
Submitted by Karen Cody
I recently discovered the original Uncle Sam cereal. I LOVE IT because of the low sugar and sodium levels and it is so tasty! I used to eat Weight Control oatmeal for breakfast, but the sodium level is too high so I was so thrilled to find Uncle Sam. Thank you for this great cereal.

Uncle Sam cereal's high fiber helps keep me regular

I'm disabled and often can't walk enough to get the middle-aged digestive system working as it should. Uncle Sam Cereal's high fiber helps keep me regular. I also have high cholesterol. Gradually adding my bowl of Uncle Sam cereal to my oatmeal gives it a lovely crunch.

Uncle Sam Wild Strawberry- thanks for making a great cereal even better
Submitted by Philippa Davies
I have been a huge fan of Uncle Sam Cereal for several years; recently I was in a hurry and just grabbed the Uncle Sam box and threw it into my hand held basket and rushed home. When I looked at the Uncle Sam box I saw it had added Wild Strawberries and I hate dehydrated fruit in my cereals, or anything else for that matter. But, I have to tell you your strawberries are superb, far better than expected and now I buy Uncle Sam Wild Strawberry Cereal every time I shop. Thanks for making a great cereal even better.

Thank you so much for offering such a wonderful morning cereal. I love the fact that is has barely any sugar-so difficult to find in cereals today. I am also doublely-thrilled that the fiber content is high. What a great way to start my day..thanks to Uncle Sam :)
Wonderful combination
Submitted by George Otey
It has been nearly 40 years since I last had Uncle Sam Cereal (back then it had a metal pour spout built into the side of the box and the box even contained raisins); but for some unknown reason it disappeared from the shelf. I've been looking for Uncle Sam Cereal for years and finally came across it at a Braum's store here in Tulsa. Thank God you didn't go out of business; your product is a wonderful combination to taste, crunch, and above all a healthy food product. I'll be buying more (can you put the raisins back as I don't see any Skinner's on the shelves here)
