There are many reasons why we may discontinue a product, but it's usually because it hasn't met sales expectations. Store chains sometimes stop carrying slower-selling items to make room for new flavors or other products. When too many stores discontinue a product, it becomes difficult to continue making and selling it.
It may interest you to know that you can make buckwheat pancakes by using Aunt Jemima Original pancake mix and buckwheat flour. I’ve listed the recipe below for you:
3/4 cup (175 ml) Aunt Jemima Original pancake mix
Stir dry ingredients together and add milk and egg as per package instructions.
We hope you'll continue to enjoy other Aunt Jemima products, Carol. Thanks so much for contacting us.
I am off to go buy some buckwheat flour at the health food store!
