Cute card? Too naughty? Advertisement for C&C Super soft drink.

C and C Super card 1954 for soft drink

What a cute card.  It certainly makes you take notice!

This old card is from 1954 and has a calendar on the back.  The front, as you can see, reads "There is a difference IN SOFT DRINKS TRY C & C SUPER in the Sanitary Cap Top Can."

The back of the card says, "IT'S 'SUPER' all year 'round."  Then there is a calendar for the year.  I assume this would have been to keep in your wallet in case you needed to check a date.

I think it is a clever little advertisement but would it be acceptable today?

Too cute!  When I was a 3rd grade kid in school, we were asked what our favorite ad was.  On the way to school that day, I came across a matchbook that had the following jingle: "When I get it, it makes me frisky.  When I don't, it makes me sad.  It isn't what you think it is.  It's Zanzibar's Whiskey."  The teacher had an uncomfortable look on her face after I recited it.  It wasn't until much later in years that I learned why!

Myrl, that is funny.  Reminds me of the time when I was about that age.  It was hot!  Inside and out of the school!  Boys removed their shirts to cool off and my girl friend and I decided to do the same thing.  I removed mine.  My friend did not.  My teacher didn't like what I'd done.  And the trouble I caused makes me remember it to this day.

I think it's cute & don't have a problem with it at all but these days companies try to stay as PC as possible. You never know what Twitter will say.

Hi Barbara,  Thanks for sharing this great, cute card.  Not sure it would have gotten me to buy the product though - but I probably would have kept the card/calendar.

Hello Bob,  I have never heard of a drink called C&C but when I googled it, there seems to be a company that makes it.  I am also somewhat puzzled over what is a Sanitary Cap Top Can.
