Dedicated to Delicious

From Diana Hunter: “That’s Honey Bunches of Oats!”

Our Story

In 1986, Post employee Vernon J. Herzing began mixing together various Post cereals to create new ones, with his daughter Kimberly assisting as the official taste-tester. He was always searching for that perfect blend – the one that would light up his daughter’s eyes. And it was on a Saturday in 1989 when Kimberly took a bite of her father’s latest creation that Vern knew he had something special. That was the day Vern created Honey Bunches of Oats.

The foundation that Vern laid – one of always being fully committed to everything we do – is present to this day. It’s mixed right into our work culture. From the passion we feel every day as we walk through the doors of Building 29 (where Honey Bunches of Oats is made), to the joy of smelling and sampling fresh, warm bunches of granola as they come out of the ovens, to the pride of seeing our work actually sitting on grocery store shelves. Individually and collectively, all of us at Honey Bunches of Oats are dedicated to making the world a little more delicious.
