From soap to cereal to snacks, there are a lot of brands we miss. And, who could forget them? We used them every day, the flavors and scents unlike any others. There are times when it would be nice to have these great products back again.
4) Woodbury Soap
Purchased by Jergens in 1901, this company was founded in 1870. Well into the ’60s, this soap and shampoo line was selling to women across the country, though they also made other cosmsetics. Their soap slogan was “for skin you love to touch,” which seems more apt to be a ’60s invention, but was actually used as far back as 1911. Have a look below at two TV spots for Woodbury.
This classic brand made its mark on America, but somehow didn’t stick around. I know people who still call all refrigerators “Kelivinators.” Known for their innovative designs, this Electrolux brand developed a huge range of products. Known for the first auto-defrost freezers and the first side-by-side refrigerators, it seems crazy that you can no longer buy a Kelvinator. The Kelvinator brand was sold and became Frigidaire, although the name is still used for products sold in South America.
2) Koogle Peanut Spread
Better than Nutella, better than pb & j, this not-exactly-peanut-butter was was so yummy. Who else remembers this short-lived treat? And it came in lots of flavors, too- strawberry, vanilla, cinnamon. Have a look at this funny TV commercial for Koogle.
1) Screaming Yellow Zonkers
While they made a very brief comeback in limited edition form several years ago, this wonderful snack is pretty much gone forever. That taste! And they were fun to eat, too. While nothing can quite replace this yummy snack, there is a recipe here for making it at home, should you choose to accept the mission. Relive a bit of the good old days with that catchy TV commercial for Screaming Yellow Zonkers.
It may have been decades since we’ve seen them, but that doesn’t mean they are forgotten! It’s hard to forget the things you grew up with, especially if they were pretty darn good!
