Just Right cereal now available on Amazon

I consider myself a cereal connoisseur. It’s true: I’m as picky and eclectic with cold cereal as the French are with wine and cheese. Keep that in mind when I say this: Kellogg’s Just Right is the pinnacle of deliciousness. It brings a refined and sensuous enjoyment to epicureans who have the good fortune to taste this scrumptious blend of dates, raisins, and almonds. It is, of course, just right.

For those without the good fortune to have tried this cereal, it tastes a bit like müsli (but with extra sugar). Perhaps that’s why I like it so much: My part-German heritage still craves that Old World flavor.


You can imagine my disappointment, then, when the two grocery chains in my area removed Just Right from their shelves. My protests led nowhere, and I resigned myself to pale imitations.

Today my luck has changed. Amazon now sells hundreds of grocery items through the mail, and I was able to order a 5-pack of Just Right cereal for $20. I think I’ll start stockpiling it; who knows when a natural disaster might once again separate me from my beloved…

    I agree 100% and more with your comments regarding “Just Right.” I was devestated when I’m noticing so often now that this product has been pulled seemingly everywhere. It was my stand-by; it was my staple; it was the ultimate in breakast cereal selection, combining natural nutrition with a rounded taste…and the sogginess enhanced the raw oatish flavor with the flakes lasting longer than most. Where can my Just Right be restocked and continually?????

      FYI, I was also a big fan of “Just Right” and was disappointed when it disappeared from US shelves. The Canadian version does not appear to have the date nuggets (something I felt was a perfect fit).

      However, I just noticed that Kellogg’s “Crispy Blend Mueslix Raisins, Dates & Almonds” is virtually identical to the old “Just Right” cereal. Maybe that’s why they phased it out here. Check it out!

    So, any idea where I can purchase this great cereal as Amazon is also sold out of inventory for some time now… Anyone, anyone???

    I almost had to partake in an intervention when I was in high school regarding Just Right. I used to eat 5 to 6 bowls a day! I couldnt get enough. Then I studied abroad in Australia and they had a cereal called Just Right but it was an immitation. They had another cereal there called sustain – which was the closest thing I have had to Just Right. I currently live in Cleveland, Ohio and they do not sell Just Right. I am freakin out! Hook a fella up!!!!!!!!!!!

    I’m so glad I found you guys. I was beginning to think I was nuts looking all over the place for a stupid box of cereal.
    I travel a lot and have made it a point to go into different grocers only to be freaking disappointed. So I Google it and here I am.
    I’m so glad I’m not alone.

    I used to think $4 +dollars was a rip off for a darn box of cereal.
    Now $20.00 does sound bad at all. That’s two beers in NYC.

    Cheers all– happy holiday. BUY Amazon stock.

    All the best

    I have been trying to find Just Right cereal for the past year in the U.S. but have been unsuccesful. Why did they stop selling it here? I am very disappointed with kellogg’s as I have been a very loyal and long time customer. What is their problem? How can I get my Just Right cereal?

    Oh God! I hear you. My stockpile from amazon disappeared years ago and I was horrified to discover there was no more to be had. I have tried mixing every other type of cereal and never found its like. How I miss it; it was my candy. I would get Canadian friends to mail it, but what’s the point if No dates, thats not Just Right! I may try “making it” . Can nobody find some of the real thing????Its good to know I’m not the only idiot who worships this stuff. Misery Loves company.

    I, too, am highly dismayed by the lack of Just Right in the USA! It was one of my childhood favorites and my breakfasts are just not the same without it. If the author of this blog could possibly do a follow-up indicating any progress he’s made in finding Just Right in America, that would be fantastic, as Amazon appears to no longer carry it either! ;_;

    Myself and my adult daughter both miss Just Right. But I recently tried a box of Post Great Grains with raisins, dates and pecans. This the closest thing I have found and it’s really good. They also make a cranberry, almond crunch version that hits the spot as well. Try them, you’ll like them. I promise.
