"It's ironic but my Dad drank Postum"

 

My father drank Postum until the day he died. One day a friend of mine noticed it on the kitchen table. She started laughing. She had read the label quickly and thought it said "Instant Possum" . Having tasted it, I think that might have been one of the main ingredients.....

I went through rationing in the UK and could'nt wait, as a teenager, for sweets to come 'off ration' in the early

1950s!!

Please tell this limey what Postum is/was?

I'm from the states and I had never heard of it. I had to look on Wikipedia:

Gee I learned something new too. I did remember the name (it rang a bell), but couldn't remember at all, what the heck it was.

I admit that I have consumed both Postum and Moxie....Moxie, for the unitiated is an early soda that tastes a little like...creosote or road tar. Wish I had thought to serve both of those when I had my Ration Cookbook party. I was kind and served regular soda and coffee.
