There are some of you who know what Postum is. We see it on the grocery shelf in the coffee section. It isn't coffee and it isn't chocolate. It is a hot grain drink.

It was made of wheat bran, wheat, molasses, and maltodextrin. It was originally created by company founder C.W. Post in 1895 as a coffee substitute. It was caffeine free, fat free, trans-fat free sodium free, and kosher.

For those of you in the community who have shared my love of the drink we now have a common bond.

Kraft foods discontinued Postum October 2007. :sad: bawling bawling

I don't drink it every day and so it had been some time since I had purchased any. I went to Hartmans Super Valu in Ortonville recently and there was non there. No confused

Next I tried Bonnies in Clinton. Strike two. No

For my final try I went to Berens and Bills Super Valu in Milbank. Strike three and four. no no no

This caused some concern and a venture was made on the internet to discover what had happened.

A search on Wikipedia revealed the devistating news. Shocked

For those of you who may still have a jar or two on your shelf be advised that jars of Postum are selling in eBay now for $25 to $35. But then if you are like me there ain't no way you would sell that little jar of gold.If however you are thinking of selling it be sure to give me a call.

Farwell.....Postum.....I knew you well bawling bawling bawling

Well, I am 'old' enough to remember this drink! My grandmother always drank it. Maybe you can start a letter writing campaign?

I honestly cannot think of anything that would replace it, can you?

One group of heavy Postum drinkers were Mormons and they are up in arms about it. Mormons (and Seventh Day Adventists) are prohibited from drinking caffeinated beverages and often begin their appreciation of it in childhood. According to one site I read.

There is a growing movement to find a company who will buy it and put it back in production. Like what happened to Ovaltine.

We'll keep watching. I hope it works.
