Label reading circa 1984
While reading Pandora’s Lunchbox, @jacobadelman unearthed this great 1984 commercial for Breyers ice cream. I love this commercial, not just because of the Dorothy Hamill hairdos and 80’s sweater vests, but because it’s a window into food marketing history. Alas, Breyers strawberry ice cream is no longer just those four simple ingredients, but also whey and tara gum. Nevermind the mono and diglycerides in the butter pecan, or the carob bean gum, guar gum and carrageenan in the black raspberry chocolate, or the propylene glycol in the fat free varieties.
