Mr. Mayor, of course I loved Tang and Kool-Aid as a kid. Not something I want to do now. I also drank a mixture of Carnation Instant Breakfast and Ovaltine with milk and a raw egg EVERY morning during my high school football days (didn’t know any better back then).
Postum, however, is REALLY BAD stuff. I bought a jar once in college, succumbing to the info that coffee and caffeine were bad for us. I didn’t finish the jar, deciding that I’d rather die from the evils of coffee than to drink Postum every morning.
BTW, your "family skeletons in the wine cellar" comment made me LOL!
