the other day, and when I came across this advertisement for a "new" Nabisco cracker called "Hamies",
I thought, "Gee, that pink pig looks familiar":
There are so many types of Nabisco crackers available these days that I couldn't possibly mention them all, so just click here, and then scroll down when you get there and you can check them all out on your own, if you so desire.
I don't think you will find any "Hamies", though...
Anyway, here's a closer look at the piggy bank:
But I'm going to go out on a limb here and say that I'm reasonably certain that not too many people have read, nor remembered, the more than 3000 posts that have been written on this blog since 2007.
So, it's very possible that you may not have seen him before!
I've had the green one below, however, for close to fifty years.
You can see that mine are less detailed than the one in the advertisement, so they were most likely made a bit later than the one shown in the 1967 ad , perhaps "copied" by a different company - but most certainly made in Japan, as were nearly all of the banks I have in my collection.
Hope you enjoyed seeing my little piggies again - or for the first time - whichever the case may be!
