Battle Creek’s ‘Honey Bunches of Oats’ Lady Retires

Diana Hunter, the Post employee and Battle Creek resident, who became famous after she was featured in a series of commercials for Honey Bunches of Oats has retired after 40 years at Post.

According to Electric Urban Report,

After more than 40 years on the job, one of her co-workers told Buzzfeed this week that Hunter retired last Friday and is a “good friend that will be missed.”

In her first Honey Bunches of Oats spot, Hunter says, “I get out of work and I got to the store and somebody smells around, ‘Mmm, I smell cookies.’ I said, ‘Oh no, you just smell me. I just got out of work. That’s Honey Bunches of Oats.’”

Take a look at some of Diana’s commercials, and grab a box of Honey Bunches of Oats on your next trip to the grocery store.

Congratulations Diana on your retirement. Thank you for being a part of our Southwest Michigan community.
