Canned Memories

Do you remember all of the brands of canned goods that used to be a standard on the grocery shelves?

Little did we know that our favorite brands would be so short-lived. Lots of different items come to mind.

However, baking powder happens to be at the top of the list today. Do you remember Hunt’s Perfect baking powder and Clabber Girl? What about Schillings, or Hills Brothers coffee?

Coffee – do you remember when you had to grind your own coffee, and it wasn’t flavored? Coffee grinders were kinda like old telephones, a wall-mounted one or a countertop model. The countertop model had this neat little wooden drawer that the ground coffee fell into.
