Folger’s Instant Coffee Jars

Folger’s Instant Coffee Jars

Folger’s Instant Coffee Crystals from "The Folger Coffee Company‚" a subsidiary of Procter & Gamble." Minor wear to labels. Since the "man in the moon" logo appears on all of three jars‚ we’re guessing they are 14 years of age or older. (The new logo was introduced in 1991‚ as per P&G’s website.) Three 1 ounce jars (obviously only one is shown.) Circa 1990. Product date code**: 0075L1 (all.) Good to very good. $10.00

**You may need to use your secret decoder ring in order to decipher the product date codes‚ but we know that these coffees have been around more than a couple of years. And although they are unopened‚ we do recommend that you use them only for adorning your retro kitchen shelves.
