What's cooking aboard

Aphorism Alert:  Why do they call them Grape-Nuts if there are no grapes or nuts? Grape-Nuts are made from natural wheat and barley. The cereal was created in 1897 by C.W. Post who named it Grape-Nuts; Grape because it contained maltose which was called grape sugar, and Nuts because of its flavor which was nutty.
