Retro Trivia


Recommended Posts

Good going Miles. I thought this was a bit of interesting trivia. Yes the jingle was to Chock Full O' Nuts , Rockefeller's name had to be removed and it was replaced with Millionaires.


Really miss the +Chock Full O' Nuts shops around Manhattan. Delicious coffee and the aroma was Heavenly.


I'd bet collectively we must have heard that commercial a Million times. LOL


Your thread :)

Here is the Chock Full O'Nuts jingle.




Yes, jingles sure stay with us. I'll bet everyone knows all the words to the song that starts "Oh, I'd love to be an Oscar Meyer ****".


If you've finished singing, advertising slogans have had a lasting impression on us as well. Here are a series of them. Can you identify the product or company they each represent?


1. It takes a licking and keeps on ticking.

2. Where's the beef?

3. I'd rather fight than switch

4. My wife . . . I think I'll keep her!

5. The best part of waking up

6. Strong enough for a man, but made for a woman

7. Does she or doesn't she?

8. Outstanding! And they are mild.

9. Ring around the collar! Ring around the collar!

10. It's not nice to fool Mother Nature

11. Helps build strong bodies 12 ways

12. Plop, plop, fizz, fizz, oh, what a relief it is!


These should be very easy for those of you of, shall we say, a certain age.

I've never been a smoker, and with the ban on advertising, I don't know how many of these brands are still around, but I do remember ads for :


Raleigh (with the coupons)

Philip Morris

Old Gold


Pall Mall



Lucky Strike






I think Camel and Marlboro are still around. Some of the others may be. They may advertise in Europe. Here's an interesting video clip.




There was a hit song called "Smoke That Cigarette" in the late forties. Here is an audio clip.



Does anyone remember Spud cigarettes? I sure don't.
