Postum. Boy, does that bring back memories. My grandmother used that stuff. There was always some in the cupboard.
For those who are not aware, Postum was a coffee substitute.
Postum is made from roasted wheat bran, wheat and molasses. This 10‑calorie beverage is caffeine-free, fat-free, trans-fat-free, sodium-free, and kosher. In addition to the original flavor, a coffee-flavored version was introduced.
See postum.com or not.
This stuff is still available, good news for any of you suffering from "brain fag"!
Watch the first 30 seconds:
So THAT'S what is wrong with me, along with many other maladies, such as nervous prostration.
Alas, I can not avail myself of this curative elixir as it is not Gluten Free and I've got that Celiac Disease. Oh, woe is me. Doomed, doomed.
For those struggling with social acceptance of their "alternate" lifestyle, perhaps
a little experiment is in order ?
Serve this up at the "pride march" and see what happens !
A little later, ads featured "Mr. Coffee Nerves" who looked a lot like depictions of Satan. Remember him ? (I kinda liked the guy - but then, I like coffee
Postum tastes like wheat bran after it's been fed to the horse !
LOL, at first I thought this thread was about Possum!
I commented something or other to my wife who is presently catching up on her Facebook thingie! She just read one to me that we've both decided would make the best television commercial ever:
Little boy, seven years old, makes a cuppa' coffee for his grandma. She of course thanks the little guy profusely, and chokes down probably the worst cup of coffee she'd ever had! At the bottom of her cup, she unexpectedly found three little tiny plastic toy soldiers. When she ask the little grandson what the that was for, he promptly replied,...."well,....like they say on T.V.,...... the best part of waking up is soldiers in your cup!"
Again, as idiotic as most T.V. commercials are, I think most of the few very good ones involve animals or little kids!
My wife spit up her coffee over that one Harold!! (She's the only one here who drinks that stuff, learned to drink it at work. I'm a tea guy!)
