Not Quite Right

The supermarket one block from our apartment carries---I am not kidding---approximately 270 brands and varieties of breakfast cereal. Among these 270 variations on Raisin Bran and Puffed Rice, there is apparently no shelf space for my preferred cereal, Just Right.

Why can I not get the cereal of my choice? Is this Soviet Russia?

I took home the cereal which, of the 270, I judged to be most similar to Just Right. But by definition, it is Not Quite Right.
