Chock full o’Things

[Click for a much larger view.]

Maxwell House, sure. But a can of Chock full o’Nuts in small-town Indiana? In 1985? Well, maybe. This can appears in “Chapter One: Suzie, Do You Copy,” the opening episode of the new (third) season of Stranger Things. The can sits on a shelf in Joyce Byers’s house.

Stranger Things is Chock full o’Things. It is utterly satisfying television — that is, if a streaming series counts as “television.”

I think I spot some Ben Hur spices.

I see a McCormick — I’m guessing that it’s mustard seed. Is the one behind it Ben Hur? (And why have I never heard of Ben Hur spices?)
