Food·Posted on Nov 23, 201421 Truly Upsetting Vintage Food AdvertisementsWhat, it's not like there's some LAW against mixing Miracle Whip with Jell-O.by Rachel SandersBuzzFeed StaffFacebookPinterestTwitterMailLink 1. This truly incredible ad for canned yams: Family Circle Magazine / Flickr: jbcurio / Creative Commons Well, guess I know what I'm making for Thanksgiving this year! 2. An ad for vegetable and celery-flavored Jell-O, which apparently existed. Flickr: wanderingmagpie / Creative Commons That veggie mold is kind of beautiful, tbh. 3. A Miracle Whip ad that suggests that you should mix it with gelatin, fruit, and lemonade?! Flickr: jbcurio / Creative Commons This has to have been straight-up trolling. 4. This SPAM ad featuring a recipe for "Fiesta Peach SPAM Bake." Flickr: jbcurio / Creative Commons Traditional at every fiesta in Mexico, of course. 5. A Campbell's ad that suggests mixing canned tomato soup with milk and cinnamon. Life / Flickr: jbcurio / Creative Commons :/ 6. A canned vegetable ad with a recipe for something truly unspeakable. Better Living Magazine / Flickr: jbcurio / Creative Commons This is a desecration of everything pie plates stand for. 7. An ad for dessert mixes that looks more like a still from Hannibal. Flickr: jbcurio / Creative Commons I don't know about you, but the phrase "'Junket' Rennet Tablet" doesn't totally get my mouth watering. 8. Another ad for Miracle Whip, which victimizes an innocent head of lettuce. Flickr: jbcurio / Creative Commons Don't forget the big glop on top! 9. A sinister ad for a mysterious canned meat product called Prem. National Home Monthly / Flickr: jbcurio / Creative Commons Please note that the suggested recipe involves slathering the meat-stuff in marmalade. 10. An add for canned seafood that might put you off fish forever. Flickr: jbcurio / Creative Commons Feel confident that we're ALL better without canned salmon and cabbage baked in mayonnaise. 11. This borderline-NSFW ad for canned Vienna sausage: Flickr: jbcurio / Creative Commons ZERO STARS 12. An ad for canned "meat spreads" that literally have a devil on the packaging. Flickr: jbcurio / Creative Commons "Underwood" — is this some kind of prescient House of Cards reference? 13. A deeply gloopy ad for Swanson's canned turkey and "Chicken a la King." Flickr: jbcurio / Creative Commons What did poultry ever do to deserve this? 14. A canned cranberry sauce ad featuring the least appetizing chicken stew you've ever seen. Flickr: jbcurio / Creative Commons Are those...ping pong balls in there? 15. An ad for what must have been an ill-fated Crisco competitor: Flickr: jbcurio / Creative Commons Weird, because "Swift'ning" totally rolls off the tongue! 16. A Hellmann's ad featuring not just one but THREE recipes that will probably give you explosive diarrhea. Flickr: jbcurio / Creative Commons AS IF you would think about making a special tuna dish without mayonnaise! 17. An ad for canned peaches that also involves Miracle Whip, because of course it does. Flickr: jbcurio / Creative Commons No canned peach dish could be complete without a square of cream cheese and a squirt of Miracle Whip. 18. A fried onions ad that seems fine until you see the horrifying onion-fish staring at you. Flickr: jbcurio / Creative Commons AHGGH 19. An ad for beans that displays some questionable hot dog innovation. Flickr: jbcurio / Creative Commons Yeah, dude. Many thanks to Jamie Bradburn for collecting these gross gems.
