I am hoping you can help me. When I was a child in the 1970s and 1980s, 
I really loved Carnation Breakfast Bars. They came in chocolate and vanilla, 
I do not remember any other flavors.They came in a package of two, they 
were small cake like squares. I loved them and ate them all the time.I 
do not remember being able to find them after about 1981-82.I have tried 
a lot of different Breakfast bars that I have seen on sale, but none of 
them were even close to what I remember eating as a child. 
They were the best. I hope that you may be able to help me.

Thank You,


Hi Melinda,

You aren't alone. My breakfast for a while in the 1980s was a Carnation Breakfast Bar washed down with a Carnation Instant Breakfast drink. I miss the bars, too.

So do a lot of other people. See:

There is a copycat recipe on the web. It falls short of the mark, but it might be similar:

I'm afraid we're all out of luck, though. Nestle owns them now, and they have no plans to bring the bars back, although people have been begging them to do so for years.
