Nonetheless, there was a rationale, however thin, for the name. The product contained maltose, known at the time as "grape sugar," and it did have a nutty flavor. Moreover, bearing in mind that the name is properly spelled "Grape-Nuts" and not "Grape Nuts," one might argue that while there were generic commodities known as grapes and nuts, there was nothing called grape-nuts, in the sense that there were cashew nuts, and thus the name could have no tendency to deceive. A fine distinction, I suppose, but that is what we have lawyers for.
Despite its name, the cereal contains neither grapes nor nuts. The cereal is actually made from wheat and barley, in later years, whole wheat so that the cereal could boast the nutritional value. Mr. Post believed that sucrose (which he called "grape sugar") formed during the baking process. This, combined with the nutty flavor of the cereal, is said to have inspired its name. Another explanation originates from employees at Post, who claim that the cereal got its name due to its resemblance to grape seeds, or grape "nuts." The cereal originally prepared by C. W. Post when he was developing the product, was a batter that came out of the oven as a rigid sheet. He then broke the sheet into pieces and ran them through a coffee grinder to produce the "nut" sized kernels.

I drove over the speed limit coming into work this morning (until I hit the mess of traffic around 79 that is being talked about in another thread right now
I also fast forward through commercials whe using my DVR (How will I know what to buy!)
I put lawn fertilizer on my grass the other day even though the bag specifically said "do not apply if rain is forecasted in teh next 24 hours." There was a 20% chance that night, so I rolled the dice.
I should be working right now, but just got out of a meeting early and am taking a breather before my next meeting.
I recently had a child and even though they said only 4 people (including me) can be back in the waiting room area, I had both sets of parents, myself, and an occassional sibling or two in and out.
