Sugar Packet: Jolly Troll

I discovered this Jolly Troll sugar packet when I
was digging through a bag of old newspapers
I got from an estate sale in Apple Valley, MN.

Considered the Twin Cities' original 'smorgasbord,' the Jolly Troll was around long before the Old Country Buffet. As a transplant to Minnesota, I didn't have the opportunity to experience the food or the little mechanical bearded men that delighted the patrons. Some fans of the long-gone eatery have created a Jolly Troll group on Facebook, and from what I read, many folks in the area have fond childhood memories of eating there.
