Vintage BUCKEYE ROLLED OATS BAG 5-Lb Cereal Heavy Paper

Vintage BUCKEYE ROLLED OATS BAG 5-Lb Cereal Heavy Paper - eBay (item 310021828905 end time Feb-15-08 18:50:24 PST)

This vintage oats bag is marked, "Buckeye® Rolled Oats, Quick Cooking Buckeye Rolled Oats, Net Weight 5 Lbs. Manufactured by The Quaker Oats Company."

I don't know when this bag was on the grocery shelf. The price stamped on the back is $1.74. One side panel has recipes for Oatmeal Cookies and Meat Loaf. The other side has cooking directions, nutritional information and the manufacturer's name and address.

The doubled paper bag has some crinkles and bends, light soiling on the graphics part, heavier soiling on the upper edge, and some fly specks and three tiny bug holes. There are no tears beyond where the package was opened. It smells like someone's bureau drawer.

My mom used to get Buckeye Rolled oats all the time -- I'm pretty sure the big bag was much more economical than the round boxes of Quaker Oats. You probably just paid extra for the latter because of it being the big "brand" name. I always wondered what happened to the company.
