Finding Wheatena

Many years ago I used to eat wheateena for breakfast and I really liked it. Somehow threw the years it went away. It came to mind for some reason and now I am on a hunt for it. I live in Hawaii and have looked for it at Safeway (the big grocery store in Hawaii). And several small (local) grocery stores here. Any suggestions of where I may find it?

You can try doing a search online. I've never seen it over here in WA. Sorry....

Maybe try Cream of Wheat. That is readily available at Safeway. From what I understand Wheateena is like oatmeal but made from wheat instead of oats. Cream of wheat may be a close substitute. I tried a google search and it was giving sites for a juicer appliance. I don't think that's what you want!

Wheatena is still available. But yes, try cream of wheat, which is
the consistancy of farina, but nuttier - like a buckwheat pancake is to a buttermilk one, like Wheatena.
Funny, I like farina, but not Wheatena. Same for buttermilk pancakes, but not buckwheat ones.
If you can't find either cream of wheat or wheatena, it is available online.

Or contact them and ask where it can be purchased near you because I do not know if Amazon will ship to Hawaii.

You can also buy Wheatena at the Vermont Country Store. I think it's 2 boxes for about $10.00.

I remember eating Wheatena too and yes, it was very good. I had forgotten about it as you did. Thanks for bringing it up. Hope you find some soon.
