<<barbeque sauce>>

I'm not sure whether I prefer the current ad where the guys are shouting it down the Grand Canyon and it answers them back, thus creeping them out, or the older ad where a big crate of ribs falls from the heavens and crushes one of the guys from 'NSYNC. Hmmm...tough call.

Hull's did not have any jingles that I can recall. I grew up drinking Hull's. One of my uncles worked at the brewery, and he gave my father several quart bottles of Hull's every week. My father would pour me a small glass of it whenever he had some himself. When I was in high school in New Haven our football coach would tell us to go home and drink a beer to replace the fluids we sweated out in practice. My replacement fluid was always Hull's.


Michael,
Thanks a million for your response! On my only trip to Connecticut, in September, 2001, I found a six-pack of Hull's Export in cans still full in its cardboard holder sitting on a shelf in an old store waaaay up above Winsted. The guy GAVE it to me. I haven't had the heart to open one (I'd have to break the six-pack!). In any event, I own a piece of Connecticut history, now transplanted to my home in Georgia.

P. S. Did Hammer & Nail ever reopen or contact out their brewing? Are they gone???

Oh, God - Not quite as bad as the Mentos ads but close. Have you heard the radio ad where someone supposedly calls in and requests the Chili's baby back ribs song? Gag me.

I saw those ads in Southeastern Mass (where we got Providence TV stations), but my husband, who grew up in suburban Boston, doesn't remember ever seeing them.

There was one in Hadley Mass, near Amherst, at least. I still have my dog polisher, unopened in the box if yours is broken.

My sibs got a weird kick out of a jingle for 'Figurines', one of those '70s diet wafer things - sung to the tune of 'Tangerine' by some overly-enthusiastic Stepford wife; the kicker lyric was "With the calorie rate - one thirty eight a bar-r-r!"

I haven't thought of Ruby Vine in years. He and my uncle Sid Teitelman, who started the Porch & Patio chain of outdoor furniture stores, were good friends and partners in lots of different things.

Wow! Was there a jingle for Metrecal? Am I making this up, or was there a Metrecal for Lunch Bunch? I think it was chocolate, but it wasn't exactly a Willy Wonka product. Where are the Oompa Loompas to help me out?

Or the ad for some fake jewelry with a close up at the end...it's a blonde woman who says completely unconvincingly, "Wow. What a bargain. How do I order?".

One for Paramount Potato Chips I saw some 20 years ago was *so* bizarre I never forgot it - the first part was simply cheap 16mm footage of some kids playing ball with some cheerful martial music soundtrack straight out of an old Japanese monster movie - then there's an abrupt cut to a stiff figurine of an anthropomorphized potato chip in Western gear being shuffled across a screen with some jolly singing cowboy soundtrack, presumably the chip singing although his mouth isn't moving.

Really? Cool! I've spent the last 30 years kicking myself for not buying 2 when I had the chance.

Some of you who grew up in the Chicago area may remember a radio jingle for Bushell Carpets. A guy with a really deep voice sang:

"HUDSON THREE...TWO SEVEN HUNDREEEEEEEED!"

Not sure about that first line, but it's something about meat loaf. Can you imagine a reasonably intelligent person passing up homemade meat loaf and mac and cheese for a Manwich???


no..and then the second verse is even worse because you get this throaty sister's voice singing about manwich as if these sandwiches should get an amen, as if they are somehow praiseworthy...

"ummm, don't feed me no baloney...."

and the, of course, there's always the classic:

"i feel like chickent tonight,
like chicken tonight,
like chicken tonight"

what was the idea there, that being redundant sells?

In upstate New York circa late 50's early 60's:

Were happy so happy, were Bilinski's family, were singing and bringing the best in quality. I'm a Bilinski's Sausage Bilinski through and through and I'm a Bilinski Kilbasi quality through and through. That's why were happy so happy cause were the Bilinski family.

Another was a bread company's: The Fredy Freihoffer shows jingle.

Freddy were ready were waiting for you, Freddy we love all the things that you do. We love your cookies and cakes. We love everything Freddy Freihoffer bakes.

And who could forget Knickerbocker Beer (real real cheap) :Always Knock for Knick.

Everybody doesn't like something,
But nobody doesn't like Sara Lee.

Once upon a time there was an engineer,
Choo-Cho Charlie was his name we hear,
He had an engine and sure had fun,
Using Good & Plenty candy to make his train run.

I love Bosco,
It's the drink for me,
Mommy put it in my milk,
To try and poison me.

But I fooled mommy,
I put it in her tea,
And now there's no more mommy
To try and poision me.

Kelloggs Sugar Corn Pops
Sugar Pops are tops.

K E Double L
O double good
Kelloggs best for you.

Wheaties, breakfast of Chanpions presents...

Bit-O-Honey goes a long, long way.

Anticipation, anticipation.............

Double your please
Double your fun
Doublemint, Doublemint, Doublemint Gum.

We love Juicyfruit Gum......

We're havin Beefaroni,

Brusha, Brusha, Brusha,
New Ipana Toothpaste

MMMMM Good
MMMMM Good
That's what Campbells soups are
MMMMM Good

Everything's better
With Blue Bonnet on it

You'll wonder where the yellow went
When you brush your teeth with Pepsident

From the valley of the Jolly
Ho ho ho
Green Giant

Wanzer on Milk
Is like sterling on silver

Nothin says luvin
Like something from the oven
And Pillsburry says it best

Taste Me, Taste Me!

I like to teach the world to sing......

It is amazing how such obscure knowledge is so universal. And I do recall that "Anticipation, it's making me wait" became "Constipation, etc.", and the Chiquita Banana tune had something to do with killing your teacher the "easy way." Meanwhile, the McDonald's theme went something like this:
McDonald's was our kind of place,
until we burnt the place.
We burnt the whole place down.
We even burnt the clown.

I'm sure that as kids we mangled any number of jingles.

I always liked the Hamm's beer jingle. It had a catchy beat.

"From the Land of Sky Blue Waters (Waters),
From the land of pines, lofty balsam,
Comes the beer refreshing,
Hamm's the Beer Refreshing".

Paramount? Home of Slim Chipply?

Do you remember the first ad they had with kids in it? They were playing hockey. My best friend Lorne was in that one. He lived next door to a Paramount exec. I thought it was so cool, then when they filmed the second one, the ones were you see them playing ball? Rememeber the fat kid near the bottom of the screen? That was me.

Anyway, the song went like this:
I'm Slim Chipply, the guy you see on the Paramount potato chip bright red packages. They're delious, and so nutrious, yes sir-ree they're pips! Paramount Potato chips.


Dang! Small world, isn't it?
Well, Slim is the Flavor Deputy, I've heard.

I'm sure that as kids we mangled any number of jingles.


We learned it:
McDonald's is their kind of place.
It's such a big disgrace.
Hamburgers in your face.
They steal your parking place.
McDonald's is their kind of place.
A nasty Change of Pace.
McDonald's is their kind of place.

Parenthetically, or might that be (Parenthetically....)

It's not a food song, but I am headin' towards 46 and my 10-year-old still sings that timeless gigglin' favorite, "Jingle Bells/Batman Smells."

Plus, there is apparently a young girl singer who had a big song sometime recently that contained the line: "Why does everything have to be so complicated?" (Or words to that effect. . .) My son and his compadres sing it: "Why does everybody have to be so constipated?"

I know this is vague, but gimme a break -- I'm a jazz-and-classical person, mostly. Sushi or somebody more "in tune" with current pop music may be able to help this be less vague.
