After reviewing the responses to this inquiry, I think the responses interesting. The first time I ever heard the expression it was used as a promotional phrase for a company in the Boston area. I can't remember the name of the company. In fact trying to recall who it was is what prompted me to search for the phrase in the first place. I'm pretty sure it was a local company, but not positive.
