Vintage Adverts

Just two of these to share today which made me smile for different reasons:

Delicious Retro Recipe...

It’s not difficult to see why Quaker’s Quick Macaroni isn’t still a staple in our diets…  Savoury and satisfying, apparently. My first thought upon seeing that wasn’t, “Mmmm, delicious!” but: “Worms!” I’m not sure I trust Jane Beaton (cookery expert of Woman’s Own) and her judgement of food any more after her recommendation of that…

Walls 1950s advert

What I like about this advert is the mid century styling of the furniture. That room divider is amazing! Also, ‘Nut Crunch’ icecream? Completely all over that…

Which advert do you prefer? Worms macaroni or Mid-century icecream?

    The Ice cream advert…a happy healthy family…and great colours…the Macaroni advert is a little underwhelming….i would buy the ice cream! 🙂

    “I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream.”
    With or without nuts it is far more appealing than the worms. Plus it has all the keen furniture!

    “from time to time specials” I like that, the old days of slightly vague advertising
