This vintage 14 oz. yellow and black Grape-Nuts cereal tin was manufactured in the 1900s, measures 6x4x2 inches and is in excellent condition.
Introduced in 1897, Grape-Nuts was one of the first ready-to-eat cold cereals, and this style of tin is one of the first package designs.
Grape-Nuts was initially marketed as a natural cereal that could enhance health and vitality, and as a "food for brain and nerve centres." Its lightweight and compact nature, nutritional value, and resistance to spoilage made it a popular food for exploration and expedition groups in the 1920s and 1930s.
