With a name like. . .

I found this on Wikipedia today--a list of past and present Smucker's catchphrases.

  • "With a name like Smucker's, it has to be good!"
  • "Smucker will make you pucker!"
  • "If you find a better jelly, you buy it!"
  • "Smucker Company, the brand you can trust"
  • "There ain't no place like Smucker's!"
  • "The only brand of jams that can make a piece of bread lively!"
  • "If you're hungry, Smucker's is the way to go!"
  • "Smucker's may be yummy, your tummy may be too, but your grocer's freezer, is not far from you!"
  • "Bread, jam and jelly, in your belly, lick your spoon and cut your bread, then you will be Smucker's well fed"
The second one reminds me of the time our friend Dave H. was introducing Paul at a meeting of some sort and with a straight face called him Small Pucker.


  1. I remember that and the good chuckle it brought.

  2. i've been wanting to ask you for a long time; Does Smucker rhyme with Tucker or with looker? I understand there are 2 different ways that people pronounce it. I'm guessing yours rhymes with Tucker, now that I've read this post........?? -PC in VA

  3. PC--I always say Smucker as in Tucker but there are others in the extended family who say it like looker. But I think I'd say the majority of Oregon Smuckers say Smucker/Tucker.

  4. I just read the "Small Pucker" joke to my husband - we both enjoyed a laugh. My family of origin makes these jokes on purpose and they are part of family lore (we still like to eat "group freight" at breakfast. . .).
