1964, Volume 2

Volume 2 of Wretched Ads from Good Housekeeping, April 1964.

There are three words that should never, ever be put together, and that's "Crusty Tuna Surprise." No matter how you mix-n-match those words "crusty tuna", "crusty surprise", "tuna surprise", it's all just wrong.

Oh boy! Dinty Moore Beef Stew served over white bread! Can life get any better? I submit that it cannot!

Mmmm, yummy, Kraft cheese pizza in a box. Not a frozen pizza, but with all the fixens, including the easy one-step crust. I've seen some gross looking pizzas in my day, but man, that one is grim.

A "meaty new idea, all smoked, sauced and cooked": Ribs In a Can. 'Nuff said.

More food from a box!!! Chef Boy-Ar-Dee spaghetti meal in a box! I would hope to god that spaghetti does not really look like this in Italy.


  1. Ribs in a can?! I knew there was a reason I'm a vegetarian!

  2. ummmmm, yummmmmmy, ribs in a that like shit on a shingle (oooops, sorry about that)

  3. on closer looks like really bad dog food.

  4. That pizza -looks like bisquick gone bad!
    In Italy they use very little meat sauce on their pasta.
