Lucy's Sanka is not DeBest DeCaf

One of the things I learned the hard way was that it doesn't pay to get discouraged. Keeping busy and making optimism a way of life can restore your faith in yourself. ~Lucille Ball

Lucille Ball brought the gift of laughter to generations with her hilarious antics and ingenious wit. While she earns "wild woman" status with her acting alone, she was a force to be reckoned with off screen as well. Ball started in film but found real success in broadcast television, first in front of the camera and later as the first woman to own and run a major television production studio. Her show I Love Lucy ran for 6 years (1951-57) and was the number one show in the country for 4 of them. She also acted in The Lucy Show and Here's Lucy and Desilu productions went on to produce Our Miss Brooks, Make Room for Daddy, The Dick Van Dyke Show, The Untouchables, Star Trek , Mission: Impossible and other groundbreaking shows. Lucille Ball was the first woman to receive the International Radio and Television Society's Gold Medal (1971). She also won 4 Emmy awards and was inducted into the Television Hall of Fame. The combination of her genius and drive toward perfection made her a legend in the world of entertainment and her work paved the way for the countless women in comedy who followed her.

In 1957 Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz filmed a Sanka commercial. We have to believe that it was bold, caffeinated coffee that fueled her long hours, but if you prefer decaf, this is one area where we would have to say, don't take Lucy's advice. Try one of our Wild Women Coffee decaf selections instead!
