The Saturday Morning Cereal Flashback Post
It’s Saturday morning, time to eat your cereal! How many of these vintage Post cereals do you remember?
Personally, I was most happy to recall the old Post-Tens and Treat-Paks. So much cooler sounding than today’s “assorted” or “variety” packs. I don’t even think Post makes the small boxes like that anymore… *sigh*
Found in in Cookies Galore (from Frances Barton, Consumer Service Department, General Foods Corporation, copyright 1956).
No, YOU Drink Piff’s
I have this thing now where whenever an ad tells me to do something, I turn it around and tell them to do it. For example, when the commercial announcer says, “Right now, you can get 0% financing,” I reply — yes, out loud, with “No, you get 0% financing!” Hubby swears it never gets old. Heh.
In this case, even if sounds threatening or at least a bit naughty, Piff’s is just a vintage soda pop.

1954 Was A Real Bitch For Baby New Year
In this vintage promotional piece for The Sands, Baby New Year’s bottle of 1954 was held just out of reach. …Ah, back when Vegas was for adults & not kids.
