Is your smoky smelly cooking fat gumming you your digestive track and giving you a case of the “deep-frying bugaboos”? Well according to this ad from 1932, using Crisco will solve all your problems? I mean c’mon ladies, it is time to get on the ball. 75% of french fried potato orders are made by men (a startling statistic) and if you want to make your man’s eyes light up the way they do when he orders a steak with french fried potatoes at a restaurant, you better get Crisco or get lost.
Looking at this ad, it just occurred to me that I have never had a fried banana. Time to crack open the Crisco!
