Here’s a Flashback Friday commercial from the ’70s of a disgusting-looking dessert called a Fruit Float.  It’s a syrupy liquid in a can that you pour into a bowl, add some milk, and stir.  And it comes in five delicious flavors!

Check out all the 1973 commercials below:

  1. Libby’s Fruit Float (can you say that five times fast?)
  2. Chef Boyardee Spaghetti Sauce (It’s pronounced Boy AR dee)
  3. Allerest allergy medicine for children (Poor Howard, dealing with that nagging mother!)
  4. Max-Pax filtered coffee (Tastes better, not bitter!)
  5. Pizza Hut restaurant with Rich Little and his W.C. Fields impersonation
  6. Bic Banana (Mel Brooks is so funny in this! Don’t write with fruit, you’ll get a very wet letter!)
  7. Crayola Crayons (I always got the 64-crayon box with the built-in sharpener!)
  8. Nair hair remover (before women were bragging about the ‘short-shorts!’)
  9. Trident sugarless gum (4 out of 5 dentists surveyed recommend sugarless gum for their patients who chew gum! Who’s that 5th dentist who doesn’t like Trident?)
  10. Listerine throat louzengers
  11. K2R spot remover (That guy in the fancy suit should sue the heck out of that clumsy mechanic!)
  12. 1974 Cadillac Fleetwood (check out that blue interior!)
