Okay, we’ll be honest: the grape was a crazy cereal drama No On our 2021 bingo card. After the brand’s dire shortage on supermarket shelves during the epidemic, some representatives have happily announced that the grape nut grain has returned with a vengeance. Here we know everything about the new update.
In January, the new York Times Grape Nuts reported a mega-reduction of products. The brand manager of the cereal company, Kristin Dock, made a statement about the unfortunate circumstances. “Grape-nuts are made using a proprietary technology and a production process that is not easily replicated, which has made it more difficult to move production to meet demand during this time.”
DeRock promised customers that they were doing everything they could to get these products back, but for some, it was not enough. Many people turned to the internet to quench their desires and the results were nothing short of frightening.
On Amazon, a packet of four boxes, was sold for $ 59.99. Keep in mind: A box of grape nuts usually goes for $ 4.99. And it’s not even the worst. On eBay, a two-box set was sold for $ 55. At Walmart.com, a large box went for $ 110.
back in business
Kristen Dock recently made a statement telling everyone they could finally rest again: Grape-Nuts cereal is back with a vengeance. He also commented on the insane prices of those paid for the product during the shortage. “It has become abundantly clear during that shortage that fans of grape-nuts are crazy for grape-nuts,” he said.
“Not only that, some of our loyal fans were willing to pay exorbitant prices just to make sure they were without their favorite crunchy cereal. As a way of showing our appreciation and thanking these fans for their dedication, we reimbursed them Want to repay love. “
If they file by April 15, people can get their reimbursement through the post consumer brand website. Grape nuts are only extracting $ 10,000 in damages, however, so it is unlikely that everyone will get their cash back.

It was an iconic and historic moment and was made possible by the now famous cereal brand.
