Aunt Jemima Pancake Mix started it all back in 1889!
Here's an advertisement from 1938:
And from 1954:
You had three varieties to choose from in 1956:
And then check this out! Make your pancakes with bacon down the middle - I've never seen that before! (1963)
And I'll never forget the jingle from this old Aunt Jemima commercial, will you?
These days, there are MANY more choices at the supermarket, including Pancake and Waffle Mix in Original Complete, Buttermilk Complete, and Original, Lite Syrup, Butter Lite Syrup, Coffee Cake Mix and, of course - Frozen breakfast items - like this French Toast:
and a host of other frozen products!
There used to be restaurants, too, including one at my favorite place - Disneyland!
The choices we have today truly are mind-boggling.
