Honey Graham Oh's (or Oh's! or Oh!s ) is a cereal brand introduced in the mid-1980s by the Quaker Oats Company. The pieces are crunchy corn and oat rings filled with graham cracker bits, crispy rice, and honey.

Oh's originally came in two varieties: "Crunchy Graham" and "Honey Nut". In 1988 the names of the two versions were switched to "Honey Graham" and "Crunchy Nut." Eventually Crunchy Nut was phased out; today, only Honey Graham is available.

Availability[edit]

This cereal is often hard to find. Quaker Oats sells the brand on its website.[1] Wal-mart and Target commonly carry this cereal to this day.

Preparation[edit]

As with Quaker's arguably most famous cereal, Cap'n Crunch, there have indeed been issues concerning the texture and "sharpness" of the cereal pieces when eaten before they have had a chance to be softened by milk. Cereal expert Prof. Dr. Nathaniel Guzik made special mention of this concern in his acclaimed studies on cereal sogginess, giving them the highest "milk-resistance rating" of all commercial brand cereal at 8/10. With such a rating, Dr. Guzik recommends waiting at least 3–5 minutes (at average room temperature or lower) before eating a bowl of Oh's, during which they will be sufficiently softened But by no means soggy.
