Then And Now #30 - Green Giant Niblets Mexicorn

Niblets Mexicorn - shown first in this advertisement from 1948:
I happen to love this stuff. Here it is again - this one from 1956:
And the way it looks "Now"
"From the valley of the Jolly (HO HO HO) Green Giant!"

Heidi, I'm laughing right now...do you remember me telling you that I wanted to take pictures of the ad's in my 1952 Ladies Home Journal? Well, one of the ad's is if the Mexicorn and I just took the pictures last night...how fun! I want to hurry and finish the pictures so I can send them to you. My camera...I hate my camera, but I think the pictures are turning out okay. I think you will love the ad's. Hopefully I can finish it up by the weekend.

Deanna :D
