So Full of It

/

Lee: So is “Chock Full o’Nuts” just nuts, or is it something with nuts?

Della: There are no nuts at all in it. It’s coffee.

Lee: Is it made with nuts?

Della: No.

Lee: Does it taste like nuts?

Della: Nope.

Lee: Then why is it “Chock Full?”

Della: I keep meaning to Google it and find out.

Lee: Hmm. I should blog about that.

Della: Yup.

    While, y’all were yackin’ I did google it and find out. Chock Full of Nuts started out as a bunch of stores selling nuts and then they switched to selling coffee during the Great Depression because shelled nuts were too much of a luxury. It’s all here in the official Chock Full of Nuts History:
