    Well, I know absolutely nothing pleases ME more than a new toaster . . . lol

    I actually remember the 7-Up ad but none of the others, but they’re certainly eye-opening, or is that eye-watering 😀

    I love old ads in general and these in particular!

    I especially liked the licorice Neccos; YUM!

    (Can’t truthfully say, though, that I’d prefer a toaster to, oh, a nice diamond bauble of some kind! 😉 )

      Me, too: My tenth-birthday-present Pierce Arrow (blue) was still called an “English Racer” when I got it right before Stingray bikes burst on the scene!
