Today on Retro Tuesday...More vintage ads!
I'm still leafing through my 1962 Family Circle. I can't recall where I bought that magazine....But it's loads of fun!
First ad: Miracle whip. A product I don't use anymore (too sweet). I would slather some everywhere when I was a kid and it was my mom's mayonnaise, didn't have any other stuff. Can you believe it has a blend of 20 ground spices to create that unmistakeable taste? 20? Are you kidding me? And Jell-o salad eeeewwww! That is such a weird thing: sandwich spread with fruit,nuts and gelatin (OMG I feel a gag coming on). I know,I know it's a matter of taste!
My mom's family had one of those at every occasion and I knew better than whine about it. I was going to eat it even if it killed me! I'm sure some of you have been there- Back then there was no pussyfooting about food. You cleaned your plate and you shut up! No 'Don't worry dear, I'm gonna fix you something else'. It sure tought me to eat everything!
Campbell's soup still a staple in most of our kitchens.Funny how some products stand the test of time so well. I use it most for recipes. I do Cream of Mush pork chops and Cream of chicken pot pie and sometimes pork chops in tomato soup.
However this ad being 47 years old inspired me to try other recipes with Campbell's....I like chicken breasts but not a whole piece in my plate. I find it too dry. So I'm glad they are using a whole chicken in those recipes, and it's cheaper too! So I'm definitely keeping my eyes opened for a chicken sale!
What can I say...I'd rather save on groceries so I can splurge on Pyrex!
Ok this one floors me!
First of all she doesn't even look fat. Second, I think every women would sweat in a girdle...
And nobody will catch me sprinkling this stuff on a sanitary napkin...I feel an itch coming on!
This product doesn't exist anymore...What will a plump girl do? What will I do? Should I refrain from going out because I might stink?
I take a shower, this is what I do!
