ORIGINAL FRANKEN BERRY CEREAL COMMERCIAL AD FROM 1971

ORIGINAL FRANKEN-BERRY CEREAL AD CIRCA 1971


In 1971, General Mills introduced strawberry flavored 'FrankenBerry' cereal with pink colored crunchy nuggets and marshmallow shapes.

The Frankenberry cereal box featured a more friendly pink cartoon version of the classic movie monster, Frankenstein. 


And some humorous 1970's Trivia: 

In 1972, Franken Berry cereal was found to include an indigestible pigment that turned some children's feces pink.

This wasn't dangerous, but caused alarm for many parents of the time. The condition became known as 'Franken Berry Stool'. 



By the time the condition was named, the culprit that had created this 'monster' was already being switched to another food dye.

Nowadays, General Mills has replaced artificial coloring with natural coloring in their cereals.

Fun Franken Berry Cereal & Toys Still Available Today!

FONDUE HOW-TO 70'S STYLE: FUN RECIPES, PARTY IDEAS, FONDUE POTS & MORE!

Vintage Fondue Cookbook from 1970 by Potpourri Press



The Fondue Craze of the 70's is Back!  It's Fast, Easy & Fun!! 

All you need is a Fondue Pot, Recipes for Dip & Dipping Foods, and a Fondue Fork for each guest.


A great way to host a Fondue Party is to keep it intimate with a very small guest list. This inspires good conversation too!

Cozy lighting, and seating with lots of floor pillows around a low table (preferably near a fireplace!) create the perfect ambience.


Fondue is the perfect dinner party meal: "The ingredients are affordable, there’s very little preparation required besides chopping up the dipping foods, and you definitely don’t have to spend any time stressing in the kitchen when your guests arrive. Fondue allows everyone to sit down and enjoy a communal meal together, recreating the atmosphere of being circled around a bonfire, toasting marshmallows over the flames somewhere in the great outdoors."   - The Ultimate 70's Fondue Party
