Understand, I don't drink or even like coffee. And I never drank coffee substitutes: why would I drink a substitute for something I don't like? But She Who Must Be Obeyed really liked Postum. A lot of other people liked the stuff, too… including a bunch of Mormons (they aren't supposed to take caffeine). The product's origin is not, however, related to Mormonism. It was developed in 1895 by Charles William Post, a Seventh-day Adventist who felt that caffeine was a bad thing. So the Seventh-Day Adventists are left hanging as well. In our case She discovered it was missing when we visited a local store to buy more of the stuff. We couldn't find it and the store manager delivered the bad news that, as of late last year, it was no longer being manufactured. Now Postum lovers are left looking at other coffee substitutes and, I guess, many of those products are, well, drek! So rest in peace, oh long-lived cereal beverage; you are missed.
