    I remember the days when Kool-aid had points on the back of the package you could collect and send in for a prize. I still have 2 Kool-aid Barbies.

    Love these! I have a soft spot for Canada Dry. As a pre-schooler, my first field trip was to the Canada Dry factory. I can still see the hundreds of bottles swirling through the filling and sealing process. So fascinating!
    Thanks Bitter Bluebird!

    The old ads were real works of art. Notice that the only one that uses photos here is the one from the American Dairy Association, which is from the late ’60’s.

  6. The VERY BEST banana bread recipe, which I still use, came from a Fluffo recipe book that my grandmother had. I have never seen Fluffo EVER. My mother always used Crisco. LOL

    I remember a lot of those ads. Interesting how misleading some of them are. For instance, the jar of lifesavers surrounded by healthy fresh fruit. Nothing healthy about those lifesavers. Pure sugar, with a bit of flavoring. Yet we provided ourselves and our children with all sorts of things like that, which were beginning to flood the markets in the 50s.

    • In our parents’ day, I don’t think anyone knew there was anything wrong with stuffing kids full of sugar. My mother certainly didn’t.

        Nor did mine, and the knowledge came slowly to me as I regularly baked sweets for my own family. Trouble is, we no longer work hard like our parents did, burning off the calories. But diabetes has become an epidemic amongst my generation (I’m 74). Sugar is a problem when overdone.

    These are great, BoB. It’s so interesting to read old ads.
