Remember Royal Pudding?

I was remembering the jingle...perhaps you remember it too?

"Royal...Pudding...
Rich, rich, rich in flavor!
Smooth, smooth, smooth as silk,
More food energy than fresh, whole milk!"

You know what else has "more food energy than fresh, whole milk"? Milk with sugar in it. "Food energy" was just another way of saying "calories". Associating it with "fresh, whole milk" has a wholesome, nurturing sound to it, doesn't it? Can you imagine anyone trying to market food like that today? "Hey, Moms! You make it with milk, but it's got WAY more calories than that!"

  1. The cooked ALWAYS tasted better than the instant.
    My Mom used to put a piece of waxed paper cut in a circle on top of each cup. Don't remember why, but I still do the same.

    1. I seem to remember my Mom doing something similar, but then she used wax paper for everything!
