Chock Full o'Nuts
Chock full o’Nuts traces its history to 1926 when William Black opened his first nut shop, which eventually expanded to a chain of coffee shops boasting gourmet caffeinated brews, freshly baked goods, and sandwiches. Patrons sip from blends such as 100% Colombian and french roast while munching on history with the Chock Classic, a cream-cheese-and-date-nut bread confection sweeter than a baby panda scaling a mountain of sugar. Sandwiches and wraps placate heartier appetites, and smoothies, iced beverages, and hot specialty drinks pour into cups with ambrosial panache.
