It’s Good for You: Watch This 1996 Grape Nuts Commercial Filmed in Kalamazoo
Post employees from the cereal plant in Battle Creek are featured in this Grape Nuts ad shot in Kalamazoo.
Yes, this just might be the actual Post softball team in this 1996 commercial. Camera crews set up at a baseball diamond in the Milwood Neighborhood to pitch softballs and healthy breakfast food.
Although that fact may be true, the name is fictitious: did you know Grape Nuts does not list grapes or nuts as ingredients? Developed in 1897 in the aptly-named Cereal City, the glucose (which Post called "grape sugar") combined with the butty flavor inspired the name. It's true- get the Straight Dope here.
