AN OLD FASHIONED EASTER

Long before we discovered designer chocolates, drug store brands were as good as it gets and a Whitman’s sampler was a big deal. Happy Easter!

    Drug store brands?? We always had Fannie May, which has been around since the 1920s!

    Talk about sticking with what works. That ad is from 1951, and the box still looks like that.

    I’m not a chocolate lover, and it all tastes the same to me, cheap or ridiculously expensive. Love seeing the old ads, brings back memories.

    Happy Easter to all who celebrate it!

    Great vintage ad, Janet—same to you!

    For a more sardonic take on the day, check out the greeting @ what really happened dot com.

    I love a fuzzy bunny as much as the next, but I have to admit, it made me truly laugh out loud—why? Because it’s nature folks, which always gets the last word :).

    And I agree regarding the staying power of the Whitman brand. “If it ain’t broke,” etc..

    But I wonder whether their classic chocolate formula is equally unadulterated?

    Not long ago, the Mars Candy Co. (which has pretty much cornered the chocolate market, changed their formula to include rennet—which is derived from the lining of cows’ stomachs. YUCK!

    Naturally, non-meat eaters were up in arms and the company backed down.

    THEN THEY MADE THE CHANGE ANYWAY.

    (Which is why I haven’t eaten a Snickers bar, etc. in about a decade.)

    Pays to be an INFORMED consumer!

    A friend of mine will only eat this candy. He says there is nothing to compare with it. Not even the real expensive candy. Some people eat with $$$$$$$$ signs.

    Speak for yourself kait. Happy Easter all.

    I was speaking for myself, thank you, and all other non-Christian readers. It would be nice to have a separation of church and gossip.

    Kait: I agree with you completely! This site has, in the past had some of the most rediculous conversation with “Christians’ bashing and damning others. It really is tiresome!

    PS…LOVE the graphics! this looks to be from the forties to me, having owned an antique store for 11 years. Paper goods go for big money as do other “disposable” things that just weren’t expected to be around years later. Paper; advertisments of all kinds; tin signs; packaging; old bottles like medicine esp. Were very highly sought after.

    This bad boy seems to have calmed down since he got serious about his former pornstar girlfriend and he has his friends wondering WHY. What’s so special about HER? We hear she keeps him satisfied by supplying her MALE porn costars for his entertainment. The bad boy pays each guy $5000 per visit so they are highly motivated to make him happy. It’s a family affair – the girlfriend watches while the bad boy fiddles around with the guys!
