Wanted some cake tonight -- so I made the Swans Down "Tops with Pops" cake.  Pretty good, a little on the small side, and the frosting was very generous. Firm texture, and good flavor.


Got to say I really enjoy the posts!

Reply 37, Hunts Tomato Paste Ad

michaelman2's profile picture

The model, is my mother.    Yep, she did this goofy ad back then and I have the original in her portfolio somewhere around here.   This was apparently just before she went blonde and had a Mary Tyler Moore bouffant.   She had a radio show in Miami and all over central Florida.  


She  had a great voice and was very quick witted.  She now suffers from Parkinson's.


It was very odd, about a year ago I went to visit her and her Parkinson's affected voice somehow had left for a few hours.


She was almost the woman I adored for 40+ years.  She sat up and said "get me a damn mirror, god my hair, how in the hell have I succumbed to this?"


We laughed and reminisced and several of the advertisements she had done were a good part of our laughter.   The Hunts ad was one of the ones she recalled she hated the pink Capri pants they chose for her to wear.   


There was a Mr. Simon who really thought my mom was the best thing ever and he almost let her have her way (she wanted to wear black, according to her recollection), but the stylist thought it would be too severe and she did not get her way.   She did end up marrying my dad whom was very close to Mr. Simon.   After the several hours of lucidity and fun, she slipped back into a lethargic, whisper of a voice lady.    


Anyway, boring, I know however,  when I saw that ad, it brought back some fun memories.

Hey guys, she actually did do several. Her natural hair color happened to be the color shown above. The blonding began in the mid 1960s and she did an Adorn hairspray ad and several Roux ( a primarily professional color formulation that many times was in a pressurized can as opposed to the individual bottles of tint/toners available back then).


I distinctly remember her preferring the glamorous set look as opposed to the Sassoon look that was coming along in the 60s. I have turned my home upside down today looking for her old book/portfolio. There was a Modern Salon magazine she had a cover on if memory serves.


When we lived in Boston for a while Filines and Jordan Marsh would have large runway shows and she would schlep me along. It was funny that 20 years later we were living in Atlanta and Rich's always had Fashionata. We both walked several years in those really wonderful productions.


Men had just been introduced and I was 16 or 17 I guess. Anyway, sadly she does not remember any of that.


The time she was lucid for a while a year or so ago ( just all of a sudden) I had to joke with her that all of that peroxide and ammonia had pickeled her brain. We laughed until we hurt


I think so many of these wonderful advertisements touch us on so many levels ( of course as any good ad exec would agree). They hit our sense of sight, they can rouse our sense of olfactory ( just the ink from a magazine takes me back, not to mention the small scented perfumed strips). They create sound when a page is flipped. I have never tasted a page, however I am sure there is a distinct taste to the page as well. Lol.


I guess the more instantaneous social media and internet advertisements ad an element as well. It is all good.


Thanks again Louie for this trip down memory lane. ( remember the song by Minnie Riperton "Back Down Memory Lane".....

I don't think they package it in the smaller cans anymore. I bought some last year at GFS, but it was the large 50oz. size.

I was raised on Heinz Tomato soup, its the only one Mom ever bought and she always made it with whole milk, not water. I always make Campbell's with whole milk too, since I can't buy Heinz anymore.

Evaporated Milk Ice Cream Failure

I tried the recipe for evaporated milk ice cream from the American Dairy Association ad this weekend (Vintage Foods Part 11, I think). Did NOT work out. The milk refused to whip into a "very stiff" state, and after freezing I ended up with an ice cream-like layer on top and the fruit matrix on bottom frozen in an impenetrable block of ice. Had a similiar experience with an old creamy fudge pie filling recipe I got here a few years ago. I think the problem is that the ingredients or manufacturing process for the base product has changed so much over the years for some of these items that you can't get them to do what the recipe calls for anymore.

That's too bad Roger. I always knew many products from the past have been altered throughout the years, and not for the better. I remember many things tasted so much better then than they do today.

They sure did. McDonalds is a perfect example. Haven't eaten there in 15 years. Their burgers don't look, smell, or taste like they did in the 70s and 80s. Too many companies are in a race to the bottom now in search of profit at all costs.
