General Foods International Coffee!


In my item about Francis Francis yesterday, I couldn’t come up with name of the flavored coffee that came in tins, that was introduced in the 70s.

Reader John Edwards came to the rescue with the name: General Foods International Coffees. I was delighted to find the timeline above on their site, along with titillating copy along the lines of this:

General Foods International Coffees introduces indulgence to a nation in need of some pampering with its first three flavors: Suisse Mocha, Cafe Vienna, and Cafe au Lait (later renamed Cafe Francais).

Thanks, John!
