Two kinds of Nabisco crackers today - Premium Saltines, as seen in this ad from 1959:
And the box as it appears today:
I remember taking Premium Saltines and making little "sandwiches" with butter, cheddar cheese and salami when I was maybe 12 or 13. Yeah - back then I wasn't concerned about fat and calories. Then again, this was only a very rare treat, I think Daddy only bought salami occasionally. It may have been a special New Year's Eve treat, I'm not sure.
Below, here's a cute little girl with her favorite crackers in this Ritz advertisement from 1953:
In this ad from 1956, the box looks much the same - and they show you many topping possibilities:
And, this year - they came out with these Snowflake crackers for the holidays. We don't usually buy these crackers , but I just thought they were so cute, I decided I'd get some and have them out on Christmas day for guests to snack on:
I have a fondness for these crackers because two of my favorite gentlemen have starred in Nabisco commercials - Andy Griffith and Regis Philbin. Remember Andy's? Everything tastes better when it sits on a Ritz. "Mmmmm...good cracker."
Regis likes to have them with strawberry jam for a late night snack. Snack on, Reege!
