50 Million Smiles and Counting
Born in 1989, Honey Bunches of Oats hit the market and became an instant success. But, did you know it all started from a single smile? Here’s the full story:
Vernon J. Herzing was practically a lifelong Post employee — he started as a summer student employee in 1951. Little did he know he was going to change Post forever. In 1986, Vern had the idea to combine a few of Post’s cereals together to make the ultimate tasty breakfast. One Saturday afternoon at home, Vern asked his daughter Kimberly to taste test his creations. The moment he saw her face light up, he knew he was onto something.
Over two decades later, Vernon’s special cereal has made over 50,000,000 smiles — yours included! Spread your smile on our Facebook page and share what it is you love about Honey Bunches of Oats.
