I love this post. It puts me in mind of the story of Postum, a grain beverage and coffee subsitute that was invented by C.W. Post at the end of the 19th century and has been favored by various religious groups including 7thh Day Adventists and Mormons for generations. Postum was recently discontinued, adding it to the world of deleted items Rob writes about. I developed a taste for Postum many years ago because I had a friend who liked to drink it in the evening with lots of honey and half n half. Now, alas, no more.
