Fun Friday - Yogi Picnic Baskets

Yogi Picnic Baskets

 

I was scrolling through some photos from last year on my phone and stumbled across this one.

 

Yogi Picnic Baskets store sign in Julian CA

 

We visit Julian, CA at least once a year, typically in the fall - it's a former gold mining town (there are still mines you can tour) in the Cayumaca Mountains about 60 miles inland from Carlsbad.

 

We enjoy lunch at the Julian Grill, and always stop to buy apples at a local fruit stand (we haven't actually gone apple picking there for some time) and a Julian Pie. My fave is the Peach Apple Crumb but they are all pretty good - I know coz I've tried them.

 

I spied this great sign and had to snap a photo. Alas, Yogi Picnic Baskets was not open while we were there - it would have been fun to explore and perhaps buy something. Their website offers some pretty nice picnic baskets, wine and cheese baskets, backpacks, picnic accessories and more.

 

"Hey, Hey, Hey" I expect a few of you remember Yogi Bear and his side-kick (and often his  conscience) Boo-Boo. Yogi was "smarter than the average bear," or so he believed. And he was always crafting plans to steal pic-a-nic baskets in Jellystone Park, much to the chagrin of Ranger Smith. Remember?

Hello Jeff - while it's been decades since I have seen Yogi Bear and I may not remember each episode, he did follow a certain modus operandi.

I remember Yogi bear and having a Yogi picnic basket would be pretty cool as well.

Good morning Jeff. My memories of Saturday morning Yogi Bear cartoons came flowing back when I saw your photograph. Thanks for the memories. Enjoy your day.

I am imagining Boo-Boo saying that you are smarter than the average bear!  It looks like a fun place to visit!

I suspect that's true, Bill. I think there have been a couple of follow-up movies as well!

Endre Barath, Jr. If the shop has been open I would have loved to share some more photos. Best I can do is their website!

Same here Michael Jacobs  Seems to me Yogi was pretty tenacious.

The baskets on their site are pretty impressive Brian England . We have an old one we got from my parents years ago - not nearly as impressive as Yogi's. LOL

Nina Hollander, Broker  Ha ha. Perhaps the branding needs help?

Ron and Alexandra Seigel Perhaps they are distant cousins?

Jeff I would also have taken a picture of that sign if I was there, and we all know Yogi is smarter than the average bear.  😂

I loved Yogi Bear as a child.  And Boo Boo was my favorite of the pair.  He was always so much smarter than Yogi.  And don't forget Mr. Ranger!

I clicked on the link, and you are right.  They offer just about everything that has to do with picnic baskets.
