I’ll be honest: I wasn’t very successful!
I managed to find one for flour:
But it’s more a cake picture and not quite right.
I also managed to find an advert for milk (though close your eyes if you hate Nestle’s):
And then I came a bit unstuck. I haven’t been able to find an advert for eggs. Perhaps they stopped eating them in the 1950s? So, I was forced to look for toppings instead:
And possibly my favourite, because it is just so terribly, terribly bad:
She actually frightens me… it’s like she’s saying, “Eat the icecream, look at it’s delicious shell-shapedness and EAT IT. You’ll look like me…” I don’t want to look like you, scary Wall’s Woman!
Oh god, there’s more:
That’s how I’m always going to eat ice-cream from now on, from inside a scooped out orange.
I did try to find a lemon juice and sugar one; to no avail. As a last resort, this advert for oranges caught my eye:
Apart from the freakily cheerful, rosy-cheeked children of the orange advert, just look at the man on the toothpaste advert next to it! Apparently, that particular toothpaste turns you into a window-peeping weirdo.
Never mind. Although my plans to create a wonderfully vintage version of pancakes has been somewhat thwarted, the excuse to eat pancakes is still with us for another few hours. Whatever you do with yours tonight, enjoy!
