June 29th

I used to love sprite then somehow we’ve lost touch through the years.  I try it once in a while but it’s just not as enjoyable as remember.  Maybe it’s the whole corn syrup thing.  But I do remember what it tasted like so many years ago.  I usually got it at the skating rink [...]

Hamburger Helper

June 25th

I can honestly say that I’ve never had Hamburger Helper. I almost feel like it’s too late to start trying it now because it seems like something that should be experienced as a kid but I guess that’s just because that’s when I first became aware of it.  I was very familiar with their commercials [...]

Nothing Compares To You: Hydrox Doubles

June 21st

Finally I had lucked out.  My Dad, who kept what I call “pretend kosher”, would only let my sisters and I eat Hydrox and never Oreos.   (We also couldn’t eat Ritz crackers but could have Hi-Hos).  So when the awesomeness knows as Hydrox Doubles came out we felt like we were eating what normal kids ate.   [...]

Love My Carpet

June 16th

I remember this stuff was a luxury that was rarely used in our house. Only for when company was coming over, and it depended what company.  I don’t think I’ve lived in a place that has had wall-to-wall carpeting since moving out of the house so I haven’t ad a need to use Love My Carpet but it’s [...]

Kudos came out in 1986 and I’m not sure what the reason was that my parents never bought these but I vaguely remember my sister and I begging for them to buy some but we were denied.  Maybe they were considered too “candy” for my parents to buy, but I have a sneaking suspicion that it was because they [...]

As I’ve been looking through old magazines I’ve noticed there are so many shampoo ads.  I’ll have to take note if magazines now still have so many shampoo ads.  I know there’s a lot of shampoo on the shelves in the stores but  it seems like there are just more varieties of the same brand.  Maybe [...]

I don’t have kids so I’m not around diapers a lot, but when I came across this 1977 ad for Pampers I recognized this package right away.  My little sister was born in 1979, I was 5 years old and I remember thinking that was my sister on the box (she did look pretty similar) [...]


June 3rd

I don’t think Prell ever made it into the shower that my sisters and I used. I believe it was in my parent’s bathroom though because I remember the shape of the bottle lingering in the shower and catching it out of the corner of my eye when I had a reason to use their bathroom.
So as I [...]
