Then And Now #77 The Jolly Green Giant
Fresh "From the valley of the Jolly (Ho Ho Ho) Green Giant!" , first we have an advertisement from 1952:
One from 1959:
From 1961 "The Green Giant hurries his new crop out of the field.."
and the other half of the ad above - showing the Green Giant truck you could send away for! Just $2.50? I'll take ten of them:
And here is ours - an older model - my husband has had this truck since he was a boy:
The Green Giant's footprint for your floor - in rug form; this one is from 1967:
The photo below was taken in 1980. The three-year-old in the picture is now 33 years old - with a two-year-old boy of his own:
As for "Now"? Well, today, there all kinds of Green Giant products to choose from. You know how that goes! Companies are always coming up with something new for us.
From canned vegetables to frozen vegetables - lots of choices these days!
Now, be sure to eat your veggies and remember to stay "Jolly".
