Back in the day you got your family in the car after work on payday and headed to the nearest McDonald’s for a treat. Or maybe you were visited by the Swanson man for your dinner. Or perhaps the only time you got ice cream was from the creepy-toned ice cream truck rolling around the neighbourhood. Your mother got wind of new Kool-aid flavours from women’s mags and the town busybody. Then came television and suddenly, there was food everywhere and we all knew about it and we all wanted it. Advertising moguls used every trick in the book to create ads that tugged at the heart strings and the purse strings. Here are some awesome, unforgettable ads that got you to eat more than you should.
