Topic: OT Chock Full o' Nuts--The Bucket List (6 msgs / 276 lines)
1) From: Vicki Smith
Apparently people are requesting burial in Chock Full o'Nuts coffee =
cans. It's the heavenly coffee, yanno.http://www.chockfullonuts.com/stories/"The Bucket List, a hit movie from Warner Bros., follows
the journey of two terminally ill cancer patients (played by Jack =
Nicholson and Morgan Freeman) who set out to live the rest of their days =
to the fullest. While fulfilling their “bucket list” of dreams and =
wishes, the two become unlikely friends, find redemption and uncover the =
joy of life along the way. Their shared discovery and personal =
reflection blossom up to the very end, when they each find eternal rest =
in the Heavenly Coffee® can.
Here at Chock full o’ Nuts, we value being part of your journey through =
life. Knowing that we’re a part of your day, connected to your =
traditions – it fills us with gratitude. But nothing has touched us =
quite like the stories submitted by those of you who found inspiration =
in the recent film The Bucket List.
We wanted to share these inspirational stories and invite you to spend =
some time here."

Chock Full'a Nuts?! When my time comes it'll be nothing but the best -- a
heat sealed bag with nitrogen back fill.

If someone wants to be buried in a coffee can, this would seem to be  =
the appropriate brand. While I don't agree with the 'Heavenly Coffee'  =
part, "Chock Full O Nuts" seems to fit the bill just perfectly.

Oh mannn....  You didn't put SPEW ALERT in the subject line.  (grin)

How many of us are old enough to remember the Chock Full O'Nuts radio  =
jingle:
"Chock Full O'Nuts is that heavenly coffee, heavenly coffee, heavenly  =
coffee.
  Chock Full O'Nuts is that heavenly coffee. Better coffee a  =
millionaire's* money can't buy."
* it was originally "...a Rockefeller's money;" when Rockefeller ran  =
for Gov. of NY in 1958, the state's Bd. of Elections ruled that it  =
violated the "Equal Time" FCC restrictions during political campaigns.
And remember the lunch counters, which came first? (The coffee was  =
sold at retail later).  The name derived from the only food (at first)  =
that the NYC chain sold:  cream cheese and walnut sandwiches on  =
crustless thin sliced raisin bread. When I was in college, they were  =
35 cents (and coffee was a dime, later raised to 15 cents). Later on,  =
they added tuna salad and egg salad on whole wheat--also thin sliced,  =
crustless, and painfully skimpy--for a whopping 50 cents.  The coffee  =
was indeed the best of any diner coffee around--brewed every 20  =
minutes.  There was no milk or cream on the counters, just sugar and  =
sweetener.  Unless you specified you wanted it black, "dark." or  =
"white," the counter girl (always a "girl," though she was often in  =
her golden years) would lift a lever under a dispenser and plop a pre- =
measured amount of half and half into your cup.
By my senior year (1970-1), I had begun to drink coffee (almost Boston- =
style) and cappuccino, but then I was on Weight Watchers. Back then,  =
WW didn't even permit liquid skim milk sold in grocery stores, just  =
canned evaporated skim or powdered skim milk (of which one had to  =
consume the equivalent of two cups daily--yecch).  They sold  =
premeasured packets--the equivalent of an ounce--to carry on the go  =
and whiten one's coffee rather than using powdered creamer.  I HATED  =
the stuff--it clumped in flakes instead of dissolving completely and  =
turned my coffee gray.  I realize now why nobody would glance my way  =
at Chock Full as I quaffed my cuppa joe--the sight was less than  =
appetizing. Fortunately, shortly after moving to Seattle I discovered  =
Starbucks in the U. Village--which opened with free macchiati from a  =
big bronze machine with brass eagles; when the machine was sold, they  =
began offering free samples of the day's roast, and hooked me on black  =
coffee. They were my first pushers!
