ANSWER - Tuesday Trivia: Cereal

In a box of Grape-Nuts cereal, what percentage of the contents are grapes and what percentage are nuts?

Zero, for both.The name was made up by cereal manufacturer C.W. Post. Maltose, one of the original ingredients, was known as grape sugar in 1898 when the cereal was first marketed; and it's believed that "nuts" referred to the cereal's flavor and/or crunch.
