I’m pretty sure I have said this before, and will most probably say it again, but I adore vintage advertisements. I love the catch phrases, the corny promises, and the super happy people just grinning from ear to ear over the product. But when you add in anything to do with a holiday, I just go wild! Commercials have the same effect on me. Whenever a holiday commercial comes on, especially if its one that gets played every year, I just get that much more excited! So with Thanksgiving coming up this week, I thought it would be fun to take a look at some vintage advertisements featuring products that one must just simply have …or at least within reason!
Turkey, or in this case, ham is the foundation for the meal. I can’t say I have ever had ham on Thanksgiving…but if it was put out there next to the turkey, I’m sure I would indulge!
Okay, I personally do not care for sweet potatoes or yam..but I know many in my family do. Especially if it has little tiny marshmallows melted on top. So this advert is for them!
Can’t have Thanksgiving dinner without the cranberry sauce or jelly! I love how this Ocean Spray advert includes recipes!
A proper Thanksgiving meal wouldn’t be complete without the dessert. Here is one featuring Dinah Shore and her pumpkin pie recipe!
And for those of you out there who can’t decided between pumpkin or pecan….why not try this pumpkin pecan pie!
I hope you all have a fantastic Thanksgiving where the times with friends and family are as delicious as the food!
