Franco-American Gravy

November 28th

I’m sure we’ve all seen enough gravy in the past few days but I found this Franco-American gravy ad and had kept this jar of gravy in my cupboard just because it is now the only product that bears the name “Franco-American”.   Campbell’s, which has owned F-A since 1915 started taking over the labels of [...]

Smucker’s Natural Peanut Butter

November 10th

Smucker’s is known for their jam and jelly (and some ice cream toppings like Magic Shell)  but they also make peanut butter as well as a kind of gross PB and jelly Frankenstein product called Goober.  But they bring it back to basics with their natural product too.
