Vitamins

Post by Kitty » Wed Feb 20, 2019 10:40 am

Here's an interesting commercial that takes a rough shot directly at Flintstones vitamins. This is Pac Man Vitamins, and is the first acting gig Fred Savage of Wonder Years fame ever had. He mentioned it on Johnny Carson, so naturally I had to look it up.

A most sterling debut! :) I didn't even know sugar avoidance was a thing in '83. Interesting that kids (and adults) are still chowing it down 36 years later. :?

Sure! Sugar makes things taste much better! Of course, there are many sugar alternatives nowadays that they didn't have back then.
