Post who was actually a patient of Dr. John Harvey Kellogg, who went on to create his own brands of cereal. The cereal originally prepared by C. W. Post when developing the product was a batter that came from 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, according to wikipedia. grape nuts neither contain grapes or nuts, according to the official website.
