I really miss Snap, Crackle, and Pop. I wish Kellogs would bring them back.

Snap, what a happy sound

        La Suer, Minnesota. They had a giant Green Giant billboard. La Suer.....sounds appetizing, doesn't it?

        Those are my favorite canned peas! In fact my whole family loves them. I'll miss that shiny silver can..

          The world looks mighty good to me, and Tootsie Rolls are all I see...etc...

            ...and Smurfberry crunch is fun to eat, a Smurfy fruity breakfast treat.

            It's to the tune of one of those Nutcracker songs...sleepy Rt. 11 can't think of its name.

                Is Schaefer and Stroh's still made? We used to buy Schaefer's by the case, it was sooooo cheap. Each case always had one or two cans that were only half full. Can't buy either hear any longer, which, I'm pretty sure is a good thing....


                We used to mix a six-pack of Schaefer with a bottle of Guinness to try to make it more like a British ale. Kids, do not attempt this at home!

                Anyone remember the Teaberry Shuffle?

                      My dog's faster than your dog, my dog's bigger than yours.
                      My dog's better 'cause he gets Ken-L Ration.

                      But I cannot for the life of me remember the Campbell's "Soup and Sandwich" lyrics (to the tune of "Love and Marriage")

                              Tasted like Kix but in the shape of animal crackers, but smaller I think. The song goes: "Here goes crispy critters, the good wholesome bunch.

                                  That was later, after they changed the name, due to the bad rap on sugar. I'm sure the sugar content was the same, but the name was changed to protect Post's noble ideals. Sugar Bear was the original character. Who sang this ditty in the later ad?

                                          I forgot this one:

                                          Heavenly Coffee, Heavenly coffee.

                                          a better cup a Rockefeller's money can't buy.

                                          Later changed to "a millionaire's money can't buy".

                                                          As long as we're talking about commercial jingles, here's some sad news for anyone who remembers the first of the late night television talk shows. Jack Paar, the king of late night, has died at the age of 85.

                                                          I kid you not.

                                                            Mounds don't."

                                                            My grandmother had two dogs named almond joy and mounds (she called them AJ and Mo for short)...guess which one was fixed.
