"It’s not nice to fool Mother Nature!" - Monarch Margarine #-o #-o


George
Well, ...vreihen  already nailed this Chiffon Margarine tag...
 possibly Monarch Margarine (Canada) had some interconnection with the (original) Texas company who marketed Chiffon.... but I'm not aware they used the same commercial. I think Chiffon (now Nabisco???) is only marketed under that name in Mexico? and a couple of other places.

Cool !!!  Now, assuming you knew the ones Dave had already identified, that gives you 59.61538461538461, which you didn't, I'll bet,
so the combined response average ARQ.....QQQQQQQ  is 51.92307692307692  and that ain't too bad for not cheating  \:D/


"...it's Delightful, it's De-Lovely, it's ------" 7UP  Sorry, wrong...
"See the USA, in your ---------!...." Chevrolet
"A Little Dab'll Do Ya" Brylcreem
"The pause that refreshes..." ? Cigarette - I don't smoke (I thought this one was Pepsi) NOT a cigarette, and Not Pepsi
"Nothin' says lovin' like something from the oven" Pillsbury
"You’ll wonder where the yellow went ..." When you brush your teeth with Pepsodent
"You're not fully clean until you're --------- clean!" Zest soap ZESTFULLY !
"Nothing beats a great pair of -'----" Pair of Leggs (I used to use the "eggs" for anemometer cups...) ME TOO! Worked great, and looked sexy....

OOPS, the damn math is wrong, ah well, who cares...

A 1970s commercial for 7Up used the song, describing it as "de-sugarfree".

Nope... slogan does not use 'sugarfree', but good try...

Yep.... was beginning to think nobody was old enough to remember that one.... In late fifties, they had a driver's seat that pivoted to let you get in and out easier, least I think it was Desoto.. and I think pushbutton gear change... ?

I'm not *that* old!!!  My long-buried :( grandfather was always singing old TV/radio jingles when I was a kid, including this one from the 1930's:

_____-____ hits the spot.
Twelve full ounces, that's a lot.
Twice as much for your nickel, too.
_____-____ is the drink for you.

Yup, the Mopar Torqueflite transmission.  My grandmother owned one in a Chrysler back in the day.  Swivel front seats were available on the last of the DeSotos, and GM also used them in the 1970's.....

You appear to be a man of my same taste:

Pepsi Cola hits the spot.
Pepsi Cola - 12 full ounce, that's a lot.
Pepsi Cola -  Twice as much for your nickel... heck I remember when they were 3 cents over the counter with a two cent bottle deposit. I and my buds bought a lot of baseballs and a couple of bikes returning Soft Drink bottles for the 2cent deposit refund....
Pepsi Cola is also..... 'the drink for you'....

My dad had a '55 Dodge D-500 with dual quad-barrel carburetors on it.
It was a gas hog, for sure, but for a 16 year-old in the 50's it was one sweet (and very fast - don't ask how I know  :roll:) car.

The medical odds are against me ever seeing 60. :(

Another TV commercial song that my grandfather used to sing all the time was "Bringing home the oil" (and he wasn't Irish).  As an adult now, I just read the Wikipedia history of the song (and subsequent ship explosion that I knew nothing about) with great interest.....
