Blast From the Past: Euell Gibbons



"Parts of a pine cone are edible" (very popular repeated line from one of his Grape Nuts commercials)

  3. Grape Nuts , I tried it once , and it was like eating gravel. SNL made fun of it years ago with this skit "Quarry Breakfast Cereal"

    I think Euell Gibbons died soon after making those commercials.

  4. I loved that SNL skit! Yes, I heard he died of heart disease after filming those. Gee, you'd think eating nuts and twigs would have helped....
