    I think that I like these commercials a bit too much.

    There was a great Jim Henson exhibit at Yerba Buena a year or more ago. They showed all of the various commercials he made and an incredibly surreal live action short film. Well worth attending.

    But what ever happened to Wilkins Coffee?

    • Paul Benner says:

      Wilkins sold the roasting plant to The Great Atlantic & Pacific Tea company
      in 1970 and continued to distribute Wilkins Coffee from Landover, Maryland.
      Halco, a public company, purchased Wilkins in 1974 and the division was called
      Halco/Wilkins Food Service. Wilkins was once again separated and sold in 1982.

  5. it appears the name was bought by a company called Royal Cup Coffee, http://www.royalcupcoffee.com
    I couldn’t however see any product available on there website with that name!
