Company Description: Ralston was originally part of The Ralston-Purina Company which was formed in 1902. The name Ralston stems from a minor social movement in the late 19th Century called Ralstonism - created by Webster Edgerly. Followers of the movement (about 800,000) followed the motto "Regime, Activity, Light, Strength, Temperation, Oxygen and Nature" - the first letters of which spelled out "Ralston"...

    I discovered this cereal at my local YMCA gym, where someone had set up a display with those small single-serving boxes as take home samples. I grabbed a few on the way out, had one for breakfast the the next morning and was blown away with how tasty it was. I returned to the YMCA the next day to load up on more samples. I actually looked forward to having it for dinner a couple times. Honestly, the best cereal I've ever had. I never found it in a grocery store and am sad to this day it isn't available.
