"Chock full o'Nuts is that heavenly coffee......"

Page Morton Black, Who Sang Heavenly Jingle, Dies at 97.   (The New York Times, 7/22/2013)

Excerpt:    Page Morton Black, the cabaret singer whose sprightly rendition of that song in radio and television ads was indelibly engraved on New Yorkers’ brains at midcentury [not enough to earn her own entry in Wikipedia, though she is mentioned in the Chock Full o' Nuts entry], died on Sunday at her home in the Premium Point enclave of New Rochelle, N.Y.

Premium Point indeed!  (I don't claim that this is Ms. Black's home, but I'm sure it was in the same premium range.)

  • "New York's coffee since 1932."
  • "100% coffee.  No nuts."
